6 Years Ago Today

…one of the greatest hockey films of all time was released. And 30 years ago today, Herb Brooks led a team of nobodys to the greatest Olympic upset of all time.


I still say there has been no better acting in an American film than the best friend from Truman Show hesitating to blow that whistle.

(I know Miracle wasn’t released exactly 6 years ago today… but you get the drift.)
