Default T.J. Oshie understands...

"The American heroes are wearing camo," he replied. "That's not me."

SOCHI, Russia As if what he did on the ice wasn't special enough, T.J. Oshie gave a postgame interview that swelled a lot of hearts back home.

Asked by Pittsburgh Tribune-Review columnist Dejan Kovacevic how he felt about being called a national hero after his four-goal performance against the Russians in the United States' dramatic overtime victory, Oshie immediately dismissed the idea.

"The American heroes are wearing camo," he replied. "That's not me."

It was a thoughtful and appropriate response. There are heroes in the military who serve every day and get little or no credit. Some of them were in Afghanistan, watching the Team USA game on Saturday, and a photo of them cheering Oshie's game-winning goal quickly went viral. In fact, there are members of the military on Team USA, including luge doubles partners Preston Griffall and Matt Mortensen, who competed a few days ago.
