As you may know my family is a full fledged Hockey family. When my son got into the sport he was mentored by his favorite goalie on our local team. Who just so happened to mention we should watch the movie Miracle on Ice. Luckily, it was on Netflix!! We have now seen it a dozen times. When I got the invite to visit Lake Placid, NY it seemed only fitting we visit the arena filmed in the movie.
Walking down the same Olympic hallways and viewing the ice is pretty surreal! These young hockey athletes won at the 1980 Olympics when the USA needed it most. It’s not just about a movie, or about our love for hockey, it’s so much more. They showed the world what you can do when you dream big. They are still inspiring generations. We saw it first hand in our son!!
