USA! USA! USA!

Though I had wanted to see it when it was in the theatres, I missed Miracle, the story of the US Hockey team at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics. But I caught it the other night on DVD and was not disappointed. It was everything I'd expected: great hockey, great 70s hairstyles, and great Minnesota and Boston accents. Oh and of course, great endings, with the US defeat of the Soviets in the semi-finals and the US defeat of Sweden in the finals for the gold medal. I love uplifting sports stories, and Miracle certainly delivered, even though I missed Mike Eruzione's game-winning goal against the Soviet Union because I was in the bathroom. Guess I'll just have to watch it again!
