The last minute of the 1980 USA vs Soviet Union Olympic hockey game. The miracle on ice. I remember exactly where I was and who I was with when I watched it on TV all those years ago. It is the most memorable moment in sports for me.
Feb. 22, 1980, the US olympic hockey team defeats the Soviet Union in the olympics. Sports Illustrated ranked it as the greatest sporting event of all time. It was the first time the Soviets had even lost an olympic hockey game since 1968.
