One week ago, T.J. Oshie from Team USA hockey was a good NHL player for the St. Louis Blues. Since his incredible performance (four shootout goals in six attempts) in the USA's dramatic overtime victory over Russia in the Sochi Olympics, Oshie has become the country's most famous Olympic hockey player since the 1980 Miracle on Ice team's Mike Eruzione.

He's having one of those great sports moments, but Oshie has won even more fans because he knows it's just that: a sports moment. When a reporter asked him what if felt like to be a hero, the player quickly replied, "No. The real heroes wear camo. I'm not one of them."

Check out video from Oshie's amazing performance.
