Happy 27th Anniversary!

It's February 22nd, so it's time for the anniversary post of the USA taking down the Soviet Union in Lake Placid. Why this isn't a national holiday yet, I don't understand. OK, well, it's based on hockey and this is the United States, so I guess I can see why it's not a national holiday, but it SHOULD be.

So, run out and watch Miracle, read the wikipedia entry on Herb Brooks, or learn now to spell Eurzione. Do your part to commemorate not only one of the greatest hockey wins ever, but one of the biggest upsets in sports history.
