"Do you believe in miracles?". Those were the iconic words of NBC's Al Michaels at the conclusion of what has become the most unlikely outcome of a major sporting event in history.
It was the semi-final hockey game at the Lake Placid Winter Olympics in 1980 when a band of American college players took to the ice against the venerable team from the Soviet Union.
The odds of a win by Team USA would have been off the charts. But, as we all know, miracles do happen but not totally by happenstance. In the case of Team USA, the coach had his finger prints all over the outcome and that coach was the late Herb Brooks!
In this episode of "A Pane In The Glass Podcast" you'll hear from Coach Brooks as he met with the director of "Miracle", the lead actor who was to portray him, Kurt Russell, and others involved in the movie's production. The place was a hotel room in Los Angeles. Recently, video of that meeting has been found. You will hear Coach Brooks as he described his vision for that miracle on ice!
