    THE greatest sports upset of all time. Lifted the US from the doldrums of the Carter years and made us proud again. One sweet case of whup ass. The genius of Herb Brooks who convinced a group of college players and minor league rejects that they could beat what was then arguably the best hockey team in the world (with all due respect to the Islanders and Oilers). Those who have not seen the movie "Miracle" (2004) should really do so.

    Some folks think they won the whole shooting match then, but the game against the ruskies was just a stepping stone on the road to the gold medal in hockey.

    I remember it well.
