A Celebration of America's Greatest Olympic Victory—the 1980 US–USSR Hockey Game! Forty years after the "Miracle on Ice" captivated the world, this book deeply examines the impact that singular event had on the people who played and coached in it and how that game changed the trajectory of American hockey. Seasoned journalist John Gilbert was there every step of the way, and thanks to his detailed recordkeeping, allows readers to reexamine the game against the Soviets, what made it the upset it was, why it still resonates today, and what it did to the lives of the players. From Mike Eruzione to Jim Craig, Mark Johnson, Buzz Schneider, Jack O’Callahan, Herb Brooks, and many others, Gilbert covers all the key players and leaders and in doing so offers a deeper understanding of the emotions and the strategy, the hows and whys of the actual game, and the impact that moment had on their lives both in the immediate aftermath and today. Gilbert doesn’t miss a beat in uncovering some never-before-told angles and helping expose the ripple effect the event helped create —and how the movie Miracle helped reinvigorate the story and inspire a new generation of players and fans. To explore the lead-up to one of the greatest moments in American sports and the impact on American morale in the aftermath of the Miracle, Gilbert dives deep into the archives. In doing so he offers a look at this moment unlike it’s ever been done before and helps answer the question as to why it continues to capture our imaginations.

Many people consider the United States hockey team's gold medal win in the 1980 Winter Olympics to be the greatest sports event of the 20th century. In Tales from the Miracle on Ice, former Olympic hero Mark Johnson talks about how 20 college players from around the country came together under the leadership of legendary coach Herb Brooks. He gives inside details on everything from those early moments during tryouts to the long exhibition schedule of games that took the team across North America and Europe, along with the bitter loss to the powerful Soviet Union team just a week before the start of the Olympics. The main focus of Tales from the Miracle on Ice, however, are the events that occurred over 10 days in Lake Placid, New York, including the opening game of the Olympics for Team USA. It is the story of a hockey team that went from huge underdog to the best hockey team in the world with an astounding upset victory over the Soviets, which included a key goal by Johnson himself. Tales from the Miracle on Ice provides insight about other members of the American team, including Mike Eruzione, Jim Craig, Mike Ramsey, Ken Morrow, Bill Baker, and Dave Christian, among others. These are tales about a team that nobody gave a chance to do anything. No one thought the United States could beat the Soviets and then go on to win the gold medal, but the team believed it could happen. Johnson takes readers back to that time in 1980 when Americans, who had hit an all-time low, were once again proud to be Americans after their victory. He also tells what the gold medal team members did after the Olympics, including their visit to the White House and the other celebrations that followed. It is hardto believe that a quarter of a century has gone by since that Sunday back in late February of 1980 when the American public fell in love with a bunch of kids playing hockey.

The U. S. hockey team’s victory at the 1980 Olympics was a “Miracle on Ice”--a miracle largely brought about by Herb Brooks, the legendary coach who forged that invincible team. Famously antagonistic toward the press at Lake Placid, Brooks nonetheless turned to sportswriter John Gilbert after each game, giving his longtime friend and confidant what became the most comprehensive coverage of the ’80 team. This book is Gilbert’s memoir of Brooks. Neither strictly biography or tell-all exposé, Herb Brooks: The Inside Story of a Hockey Mastermind is the story of an extraordinary man as it emerged in the course of a remarkable friendship.

On the fortieth anniversary of the historic "Miracle on Ice," Mike Eruzione—the captain of the 1980 U.S Men’s Olympic Hockey Team, who scored the winning goal—recounts his amazing career on ice, the legendary upset against the Soviets, and winning the gold medal. It is the greatest American underdog sports story ever told: how a team of college kids and unsigned amateurs, under the tutelage of legendary coach—and legendary taskmaster—Herb Brooks, beat the elite Soviet hockey team on their way to winning the gold medal at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics. No one believed the scrappy Americans had a real shot at winning. Despite being undefeated, the U.S.—the youngest team in the competition—were facing off against the four-time defending gold medalist Russians. But the Americans’ irrepressible optimism, skill, and fearless attitude helped them outplay the seasoned Soviet team and deliver their iconic win. As captain, Mike Eruzione led his team on the ice on that Friday, February 22, 1980. But beating the U.S.S.R was only one of the numerous challenges Mike has faced in his life. In this inspiring memoir, he recounts the obstacles he has overcome, from his blue-collar upbringing in Winthrop, Massachusetts, to his battle to make the Boston University squad; his challenges in the minor leagues and international tournaments to his selection to the U.S. team and their run for gold. He also talks about the aftermath of that stupendous win that inspired and united the nation at a time of crisis in its history. Eruzione has lived a hockey life full of unexpected twists and surprising turns. Al Michaels’ famous call in 1980—"do you believe in miracles? YES!"—could have been about Mike himself. Filled with vivid portraits—from his hard-working, irrepressible father to the irascible Herb Brooks to the Russian hall of famers Tretiak, Kharlamov, Makarov, and Fetisov—this lively, fascinating look back is destined to become a sports classic and is a must for hockey fans, especially those who witnessed that miraculous day.

Sapone embodied this spirit through her travels in various cultures, finally settling in the United States. It is her hope that by sharing her life stories, others will be drawn to Christ.

To quote the author, "I am a sojourner just passing through helping people to feel better about themselves and leaving a place better than I found it." To this end, she volunteered to aid with the revitalization of quaint areas in which she has lived. In her most recent mission, she started a music ministry, singing for shut-ins and the sick.Always giving to others through various charities, she feels blessed by God to have survived some difficult times in her life and been given the strength to continue on and live a rewarding life.
