Well, I'm just curious about this and I thought I'd bring it up because of how we were talking about stuff that happened before we were born during the the Sharks-Kings Gameday Thread. This question I have is for all of the older people on this blog, so enough wasting time, here it is. Where were you when the Miracle on Ice happened??? And what was your reaction to it?
If you don't know what I'm talking about, then punch yourself, if you still don't know because you're half monkey, then this should give you an idea what I'm talking about. As for why I want to know, there are a couple reasons:
1. During summer vacation, I was forced to read 2 books, but we had a choice what books to read. There was a list of books and one of them was about the Miracle on Ice and the players involved. Obviously, with me being a hockey fan, I choose that book. When we got back, we got into a discussion about our books. I told him what book I read, he paused for a moment and said, "That game was insane. I remember exactly where I was when that happened. And you can ask anyone that was around at the time and they'll be able to tell you where they were, it was that big."
2. I wish I was alive back then to experience that. It must've been amazing, and it will never happen again because of the way Olympic teams are put together. No country is going to send college kids to compete in the Olympic qualifiers to go up against the best players in the world. That will be the last time an upset of that size will happen. I really wish I was around to see that, and I'm just curious about what it must've been like to see it.
I'll repeat the questions in case some of you old timers can't remember what it was :) Where were you when the Miracle on Ice happened??? And what was your reaction to it?
