Greatest Moment in Sport: USA-USSR Hockey at 1980 Winter Olympic Games

By Robert H. Kelly

This is without a doubt, the greatest moment in USA Olympic history, if not the entire world of sport.

Of course I am talking about the USA defeating the USSR in hockey at the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid.

Many will disagree, and they are entitled to their opinion, but in this writer's mind, it was the great moment in the history of sport.

Of couse, I was not there. I WAS watching it on TV. Not even I thought such a feat could happen.

It just goes to show if you want it bad enough, and you believe in miracles..they can happen.

What a time. The Olympics as they should ALWAYS be!!!

What a shame they have turned into a mere shadow of their former self.
