You could only win this game by killing your opponents with a dodgeball. Literally killing them – they rose up to heaven as little angels when they died. As Team USA, you took on the world, finishing with the Soviet Union – bizarre to think about in our post-Cold War present. First though, you had to beat the other American team in a qualifier. The music was brash, loud, and fast, a perfect backdrop for a patriotic duel to the death. America, baby!
