Where were you in 1980? Do you remember when Al Michaels called the greatest Olympic hockey game on t.v. against the Russians. Do you Believe in Miracles? I have and I do!
As a Hockey player I knew the importance of the game. A number of years earlier in school I actually got to wear Coach Jack Riley's medal he won as the US coach that had last beaten the Russians in the 1960 Olympics.
Today, is the 28th anniversary of the U.S. hockey team's Miracle on Ice in one of the most dramatic upsets in Olympic history, the underdog U.S. hockey team, made up of college players, defeated the four-time defending gold-medal winning Soviet team at the XIII Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid, New York.
God Bless the Late Coach Herb Brooks and his team. They gave our country one of the greatest sports moments just when we needed it.
