I was 7 when the ‘Miracle on Ice’ took place and watched the game in awe with my dad. Everytime I see it on ESPN Classic it still puts a lump in my throat.
Well, the Misses has never seen the game so I took her to see the movie the other night and it was rather impressive. I knew the outcome and yet myu heart was still racing at the end. The actaul play is done really well and they took the input given to them by Brooks and the players and kept it true to life.Unfortuneately as many hockey enthusiasts know, Her was killed prior to the final cut and never got to see the movie.
If you get the chance to see it, even if you are old enough to remember it from memory, it is definitely worth it.
