Miracle On Ice

Come back with me now, back 31 years, to The Miracle On Ice which took place 31 years ago today? Hardly seems that long.

Beating the Soviets was a BIG deal in my world at the time (working construction in Dallas, Texas). Many of us don’t remember that wasn’t even the gold medal round! Many more of us don’t recall who we beat in the medal round. To win gold, Herb and his band of misfit college hockey players had to turn around AFTER that Miracle game and beat Finland. It was amazing. There is no superlative too happily expressive to describe the feeling we had then.

First, the Soviets…

Then, Finland…

God Bless America!
