I was sitting in front of my tv at the age of 9, half watching half not - 100% not aware of what was happening that night! But I do remember watching it.

I watched every second of the game. I remember that the background to the game was that we had Americans being held as hostages in Iran and the country was watching their economy being pulled down by double-digit inflation, unemployment, and a growing trade and budget deficit. Remember the gas lines? Remember coffee prices?

I think that my family was typical in that our Olympic Hockey Team gave us back a sense of patriotism at a point when we wanted to feel good about our country again.

Anyone remember the song that came out soon after the games? The lyrics say it all.

Quote:
In America

Well the eagle's been flying slow and the flag's been flying low
And a lot of people are saying that America's fixing to fall
But speaking just for me and some people from Tennessee
We got a thing or two to tell you all
This lady may have stumbled but she ain't never fell
And if the Russians don't believe that they can all go straight to hell
We're gonna put her feet back on the path of righteousness
And then God bless America again

And you never did think that it ever would happen again
In America, did you?
You never did think that we'd ever get together again
Well we damn sure fooled you
We're walking real proud and we're talking real loud again in America
You never did think that it ever would happen again

From the sound up in Long Island out to San Francisco Bay
And ev'ry thing that's in between them is our home
And we may have done a little bit of fighting amongst ourselves
But you outside people best leave us alone
Cause we'll all stick together and you can take that to the bank
That's the cowboys and the hippies and the rebels and the yanks
You just go and lay your hand on a Pittsburgh Steeler fan
And I think you're gonna finally understand


And you never did think that it ever would happen again
In America, did you?
You never did think that we'd ever get together again
Well we damn sure fooled you
We're walking real proud and we're talking real loud again in America
You never did think that it ever would happen again

I was in 10th grade at the time and i remember watching every second of that game like it was yesterday!

I posted this in the "Olympic Hockey " thread but

Bob Costas remarked the other day that there apparently was a poll amongst sportswriters for the best Quote ever by an announcer and Al Michaels call of that game won when he said,

"Do You Believe in Miracles?!"

I still get chills when I hear that...

Thanks for the memories LLT - I loved that song!

I remember the USA/Russian series oh so well and the immense pride I felt after the USA took the Gold! Is a repeat of the USA's hockey team in order?

I SAY HELL YEAH!
