by Lee Hernly

Today (Saturday, February 22, 2020) is the 40th anniversary of the USA beating the Soviet Union 4-3 in the Miracle on Ice. The event remains one of the greatest moments in sports history and the history of the United States

The Soviet Union had won every Gold medal in Olympic hockey since 1960 and they were seemingly unstoppable coming into the XIII Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, NY.

That is until Coach Herb Brooks and his ragtag bunch of college kids beat them at their own game.
