Do You Believe in Miracles?!

As many of Adirondack Lifestyle blog readers know, Lake Placid, New York is famous for a very special moment in the history of sports. It was here in Lake Placid that commentator Al Michaels asked viewers the question, "Do you believe in miracles?" branding the moment when the 1980 US hockey team beat the Soviet Union on their way to win one of the most famous Olympic gold medals ever collected. The under-dog United States team's defeat of the Russians, the "Miracle on Ice," also spawned two movies. The re-creation of coach Herb Brooks locker room speech is now legendary in the realm of sports films. It has always been one of my favorite cheesey film scenes and gives me goose bumps no matter how many times I see the movies. The four-year-old boy in today's video obviously enjoyed the movie too! It should come as no surprise that Lake Placid is a big hockey town with many hockey moms like Kim, my colleague at the real estate office, who made my morning when she showed me the clip.
