CCCP Hockey

This is a great documentary. I just got it in the mail.
It's about the former Soviet Union's hockey team.
They where unbeatable more or less.
As a bonus on the dvd you get to see the world cup finals between Sweden and SSSR from 1981. The big russian red machine won with 13 to 1. In a final! That's how superior they where.
On the other hand they practised for 50 weeks out of the year. Three ice passes a day. Then physical practice on top. The swedes had it more as a hobby and had ordinary jobs as well.
