Before Rocky IV 2.0, let's check out the first trip to Mother Russia

It's Rocky IV!

The United States will face Russia before a sold out crowd on Wednesday. The last time the U.S. went to Mother Russia to take on the big, bad men in red, it was actually a single man representing the entire country. His name was Rocky and he fought for freedom. He fought for America.

Rocky was not scared. He turned a packed house of Soviets into capitalist preaching, bald eagle loving, liberty pissing people chanting for the man in too-shot red, white and blue shorts. He single-handedly ended the Cold War.

The U.S. does not need to end the Cold War in Krasnodar, but they would be wise to emulate Rocky. Yo, Adrian, do you believe? U! S! A!
