This is one of those times that cannot be fully understood unless you lived through those times. The first four games were played in Canada. We were heavy favorites. However, we left for Moscow down - convincingly - 1 win, 1 tie, 2 losses. In Moscow Canada the NHL (Bobby Hull, for one, wasn't allowed to play because he was in an upstart league) lost the first game and all seemed inevitable. But... Canada won the next 3 games and squeaked out the series win.

Yes, my great-grandmother died of emphysema, and my grandfather who died of a heart attack when he was 49 also smoked (which is thought to have exacerbated his heart disease). I have never smoked, not even to try it, and that’s how it will remain.

My grandfather smoked and so did both of my parents.

I remember going to visit my father in the hospital while he was there for cancer treatment and he was smoking in his hospital bed. That was back in the late '70s and smoking was allowed in the hospital except in rooms where there were oxygen tanks being used.

Also, during my working days in an office environment, smoking was allowed up until the late '90s. Then the company created a special large smoking room with door seals and an isolated heating/AC system where smokers had to go to smoke.

My mother in-law was a nurse(she's passed on now for 10 years) and as a smoker she could smoke anywhere in the hospital she worked at back then. Crazy now to think that back then doctors, nurses and patients could smoke in a hospital!??
However what's ironic is that more people now are dying from obesity related health issues at a young age as well as young people overdosing on drugs, whereas those life long smokers from long ago are living to be in their 80's and 90's. My daughter works at an assisted living home and the majority of her elderly patients were/are cigarette smokers. I am in no way supporting cigarette smoking, just stating a fact that people of my dad's generation are living longer based on the way of living back then(even if they smoked) than the sedentary generation of the past 30 years .

Now that's just so wrong to hate "all" who smoke cigarettes, because WE ALL have some kind of a bad habit, thus why we should never automatically "hate" someone for their bad habit before getting to even really know that person.
My dad is my idol/hero... he proudly enlisted at 17 yrs old to serve our great country as a Marine, he wasn't/isn't a drinker, he worked constantly, he treated our mom like a QUEEN every day all during their 47 years of being married and raised his girls to be strong independent women...eh but you would HATE him because he smokes cigarettes, smh.

Both sets of my grandparents never smoked cigarettes, however my mom and dad both did since they were 12(my dad still smokes at least a pack a day at 79 years old).
When I was a kid people could smoke anywhere, where I clearly remember going grocery shopping with my mom with her smoking her cigarette while food shopping, her smoking while sitting at the dinner table while we were all eating, both my parents smoking their cigarettes in our station wagon with all the windows UP during the winter while us kids were all in the back seat and me as a kid being able to walk to the local general store to buy cigarettes for my parents...that's just how it was back then.

We're all going to die eventually whether it be by natural causes, while in a tragic accident or due to how we CHOOSE to eat, drink etc.
My dad years ago CHOSE not give up smoking or to eat a healthy diet when he was told by his doctors after having emergency triple by bass heart surgery that he would be dead within 5 years IF he didn't quit smoking and didn't change his diet...my dad's reasoning back then was that he would rather be dead within 5 years smoking and eating Italian food being HAPPY, than being miserable living a healthy lifestyle just so I can live longer being miserable all the time. My dad is still alive and kicking at 79 living his life the way he wants to, and even though I disagreed with him back then...I get it that being HAPPY living free is the secret to living a long life.

Lorraine, we are all going to eventually die...therefore why I have the same beliefs/attitude of my dad wanting to live HIS life the way he wants to live INSTEAD of him as a Marine veteran having to live his life under a GOVERNMENT and his Doctors telling him how he should live his life so he can live a longer life.... being MISERABLE.
My mom had breast cancer twice while in her 50's and then eventually passing on from lung cancer when she was 69 following to the T of her doctors orders ...whereas my Dad as a life long smoker having triple bypass emergency surgery and NOT following his many doctors orders, is still alive and kicking at 79 still being happy smoking his pack of cigarettes a day...proving that when it's OUR TIME to pass on, it's our time and no amount of new laws enacted by our government will change God's plans for us.
