Storyline

At the Winter Olympics of 1980, after two tense weeks amidst growing Cold War fears, the U.S. Olympic hockey team found themselves playing improbably against the legendary unbeatable Soviet Army hockey team for a chance at Olympic Gold. From the live footage taken at Lake Placid, NY, and through interviews beginning with the team's assembly through the experience of winning the gold medal, we meet the young hockey legends Jim Craig, Mike Eruzione, Jack O'Callahan, Coach Herb Brooks, Manager Craig Patrick, and Russian players Vladislav Tretiak and Boris Mikhailov, with commentary by ABC Sports broadcasters Al Michaels (who yelled, "Do you believe in miracles?" as time expired) and Jim Lampley.

If this doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you don't believe!
10 April 2001 | by big daddy yum yumSee all my reviews

This is the best sports documentary and team building video ever made. This is an inspirational experience and story. This makes you proud to be an American and makes you just want to say, God Bless America. If you aren't touched by this story, you don't believe in any miracles.
