You know despite all of the press its recieved over the years, the movie and everything else. This has to be one of the most exciting sports feats of my lifetime.

Remember it like it was yesterday. Also, damn I'm getting old :)

Given the Rangers' lack of success in the '70s, this was the first time hockey really registered with me as interesting. Then the Devils came along ;)

Ok...let me preempt my comments by saying that I love hockey. And I think that the story of the 80 Olympic team is incredible, hell even the movie was damn good. But... Holy cow can we just lay off a bit? You would think they won this year. With all the media hype about the movie and now the 25th anniversary...it just won't go away. I never thought I would get tired of this story...but it keeps on coming up...over and over again.

Nowadays I mostly like remembering that game because it reminds me of the Lake Placid Olympics...the last of the small-town, human-scale Olympics.

To commemorate, I rewatched Miracle. The game was one of my early memories watching sports on TV with my Dad. Happy Anniversary USA Hockey.
