Miracle on Ice
Al Michaels on Announcing the Miracle Game

Al Michaels shares his first-person account of doing the play-by-play for the 1980 Miracle on Ice Olympic hockey game. The USA defeated the USSR, 4-3, on February 22, 1980, in what has been called the sports event of the century. Michaels famously asked, as the seconds ticked down, "Do you believe in miracles?" It was only the second hockey game he had ever broadcast. His broadcast partner that night, Ken Dryden, was a recently retired NHL goalie. The game was shown on tape delay, but most Americans had no idea what the outcome was while they were watching the broadcast.
