What does impossible mean? From the 1972 Summit Series

“Impossible only means that you haven’t found the solution yet.”

Morrison, Scott. 1972: The Series That Changed Hockey Forever. Toronto: Simon & Schuster Canada, 2022. (see page 243)

This from what looks to be a fantastic book on the 1972 Summit Series.

Don’t fret. I didn’t know what the Summit Series was either. It was an eight game hockey series between Canada and the Soviet Union. This was the first time NHL players filled the Canadian national team roster.

On the surface 1972 looks like a hockey book, but as I read on I discovered it’s a Canadian history book. It’s packed with historical moments most non-Canadians would know nothing of.

See the FLQ crisis. Crisis of national identity is not something unique to the last five years.
