Celebrate ‘Miracle on Ice’ anniversary by watching thrilling final minute of the game
Thirty seven years ago today, America witnessed the Miracle on Ice.
A group of college hockey players representing Team USA shocked the World No. 1 Russian team in the 1980 Olympics, in what many count as the biggest sporting upset of all time.
To celebrate the anniversary, you should watch the final minute of the game, which is somehow just as tense and thrilling today as it was back in 1980.
Al Michaels’ call, the drama, the energy in the building … it’s all there. This is one of my favorite videos on YouTube, and for good reason — it’s one of those rare videos that feels like fiction. It doesn’t even need a cheesy score with swirling violins — the drama and emotion are already there.
USA would go on to beat Finland to secure the gold medal.
