This Day in the History of Near Miracles on Ice
Labels: Winter Olympics
The best thing about knowing it would be a game, was the surprise goal for the USA at the end of the first period, when the Soviet defense let their guard down. The Soviets had stomped a mudhole in the ass of Team USA just weeks prior.
So they were taken a bit offguard, to say the least, when Team USA came out to win, instead of just trying to lose gracefully.
That's one of those historical goosebump memories, for me.
