Final Minute of the "Miracle on Ice"
On February 22, 1980, the United States Olympic hockey team pulled off one of the greatest upsets in sports history, defeating the Soviet Union, 4-3. Back in 2005, ESPN replayed this game and the gold medal game against Finland as part of the 25th anniversary of these Olympics. Everyone has their own story to tell about where they were or what they were doing during this game. I encourage all of you to tell your story or stories below. Now, because I was born in 1994, I don't have a story to tell, but I will tell you my father's story. He had the flu and wasn't really feeling well, so he didn't watch the game. In fact, he even asked his roommate to turn the volume down on the TV. Al Michaels and Ken Dryden on the call.
