The Top Ten
Deffinently should be number 1. We beat USSR. Team full of unsuspecting players came out, worked hard, and won.
USA pulls of the massive upset to best the mighty Soviets and go on to win the gold medal in 1980 Lake Placid
Why is this number 1? Hockey is USA's 5th favourite Sport. Canada's 2nd behind lacrosse.
Its the greatest game/ upset in the history of sports how is it 2?
I was born in the 80s... but anyone who doubts that this is by far the greatest moment in hockey history has obviously never understood the full story of what happened in 1972. Not only were we getting beat by a team we were told was comparable to our Junior B teams but we were getting beat by a bunch of communists. This is why the team was booed off the ice and had debree thrown at them in Vancouver. When they came back to Canada victorious, however, they recieved a hero's welcome at the Montreal airport!
Should be #1. Only reason why miracle on ice is #1 is because the entire the top tens list headquarters is based in the United States. If this sight was based in Canada summit series would be #1.
