USA hockey let 67-year-old Canadian man could make Olympic team

The USA Hockey guys were letting players know whether or not they had made the team for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. In a sign of the times, they were texting players to let them know they were in contention and would be contacted if they made the team.

One of the texts went to a 67-year-old man in Vancouver, Canada. It was intended for a player but he said he’d be willing to play for team USA if they’d have him.
