Miracle on Ice – 28 years ago

Miracle on Ice - Sports Illustrated Cover

Google News turns up virtually no hits on this, but it was February 22, 1980, when we beat those damn Commies. Team USA won the gold a few days later.

If you haven’t seen Miracle, it’s a good one. I’ve also caught the game on ESPN Classic a couple of times. Good stuff, fond memories.


  1. I knew it happened in February, but I could not find the actual day. Thanks for posting it. BTW, I miss those commies and the heyday of the Olympics. Today’s Olympics suck.

  2. It was always fun to beat the Soviets because they took these games waaaay to seriously. Today we’ve become the Soveits. That’s why the games suck.
