“It was a sliver of the Cold War on ice.” – Al Michaels

The “Miracle on Ice” occurred 30 years ago today in Lake Placid, NY. Even after watching every highlight available it still gives me goosebumps when I watch the players and networks take a look back. Still wish they assembled a group of college athletes to work and train together for the games. As much I love watching the superstars of the NHL battle it out, it’s just not the same. Never will be.
