“Miracle on Ice” – USA Beats Russia in Hockey During 1980 Lake Placid Olympics – 2/22/80

Wow! We remember this like it happened yesterday. Nobody gave the USA Men’s Hockey team a chance for a medal before the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York–much less the gold! But coach Herb Brooks took his rag tag band of college players and molded them into one of the greatest Olympic teams of all time! Listen to Al Michaels call the final minute of that immortal game.  I still remember goalie Jim Craig, wrapped in the American flag, skating around the rink, looking for his father in the crowd.

Do you believe in miracles? Yes!
