Do you believe in miracles? YES!

It has been 28 years since Al Michaels [ASU grad fyi] called out perhaps the most famous line in sports history on ABC. What a moment! It has been said that it is the greatest sports moment of the 20th century, and certainly one of the happier highlights of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union [well from an American perspective at least]. It still is amazing that a bunch of college kids - most who would not even make a splash beyond the college level - could take down the well oiled, "professional" Soviet team. My favorite part is that most of the team was from Minnesota as well as coach Herb Brooks! Go Minnesota!!! Well anyways, I think I am going to watch Miracle today in honor of the great sports event. Tip of the hat to the Boys of Winter today. Your inspiring play continues to make us proud long after its success.
