VANCOUVER-Today at the 2010 Winter Games, we're getting set for one of the most anticipated events of the past two weeks as the Kree team goes up against representatives of Transylvania for the gold medal in ice hockey. But first, here's a real treat for you, as we're going to look back at the classic hockey championship match-up from 1980.

Multiple Mania
I was fortunate enough to be calling the historic meeting between the heavily favored Asgardian team and Jamie Madrox on that incredible day 30 years ago in one of my first Winter Games assignments. Let's check out the highlights of that monumental game...

M.O.D.O.K.: We've reached the final minute of play here in this championship game. Jamie Madrox has thus far shocked everybody by clinging to a 3-3 tie with the juggernaut Asgardian team-can he pull this one out? We're about to find out!

Face-off: Madrox and Loki
M.O.D.O.K.: Face-off in the Asgardian end. Madrox and the devious Loki fight for the puck-Madrox wins it! Gets a pass off to Madrox!

M.O.D.O.K.: Madrox drops it to Madrox...

M.O.D.O.K.: Madrox stops short of Beta Ray Bill and fires it to Madrox...

M.O.D.O.K.: Oh, and Madrox takes a hard hit from Thor! But...wait...he managed to get off a last second pass to Madrox!

Charge on Destoyer
M.O.D.O.K.: Madrox skates hard. Only the Destroyer, the Asgardian goaltender, awaits!

M.O.D.O.K.: Eleven seconds, you've got ten seconds, the countdown going on right now! Madrox, slides one more pass to Madrox. Madrox SCORES! Two seconds left and Madrox scores! 4-3 Madrox! Do you believe in multiples? YES!

M.O.D.O.K.: He has done it! Jamie Madrox has done it! He has won the gold medal!

Victory!
What a moment...of course the gold medal was eventually stripped from Jamie Madrox as he had literally a dozen too many players on the ice...but what a moment.
