Being a history major, this is something that interests me. Today is the 27th anniversary of the US victory over the Soviet Union in Lake Placid, NY in the 1980 Olympics. The Soviet Union had won the previous 4 gold medals prior to 1980. Thought some of you might like to know...

Have you seen the hour-long HBO documentary?

OMG! It is so awesome!

There's a point where Craig Patrick is being interviewed. He chokes up and tears well in his eyes.

That's just one point where I do the same.

I love those guys. In a totally heterosexual type way.

Oh also check out the book, Boys of Winter. I've read it twice. Great book.

if you're referring to the 72 summit series where the best the nhl has to offer barely squeaks by after comming behind three games i'm sorry but there's no comparison.

Nationally it would be very easy to say one game is better than the other depending on the country.

What makes the miracle on ice, a miracle is the fact that a bunch of teenagers who really didn't have much a spectular nhl career after that (broten excluded) beat the most powerful team in the world at the time. A team that embarrassed the nhl when they played them. But a group of kids with sheer willpower and some lucky goals topples them straight down. Think about it, it's like a high school hockey team beating the 02' wings. It's unbelievable but it was that drastic.
