1/14 OPEN GALLERY

We sure do. It was the magical winter of 1988. Neon was big. The Canadians wore cowboy hats. The Soviet Union and East Germany were both in attendance (and came first and second in the medal count, respectively). Jamaica sent a bobsled team. And Canada, the proud host nation, failed to win a single gold medal. Ah well. If we remember the Calgary Games for anything, it'll be for the awesome 1980s style we get to relive in posts like this. (And don't get smug Vancouver — let's talk in 25 years.) Even as the Sochi Games continue to enthral us, let's take another quick nostalgic detour into a part of our Olympic heritage.
