On Saturday November 16th, eighteen members of the "Miracle on Ice" 1980 USA Men's Hockey Teamwill be signing autographs at the Minneapolis Sports Collectible Convention inside the Earle Brown Heritage Center in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.
The 1980 United States Mens Olympic Hockey Team is one of the most remembered sports teams in the history of the United States. With only one player returning from the 1976 Olympic team, the 1980 team consisted of a bunch of college kids that began playing together during the summer of 1979. Led by coach Herb Brooks, the team went 4–0–1 during group play (Czechoslovakia 7-2, Norway 5–1, Romania 7–2, West Germany 4–2 and Sweden 2-2) and advanced to the medal round. The Soviet Union team destroyed the competition during group play (Japan 16–0, Netherlands 17–4, Poland 8–1, Finland 4–2, and Canada 6–4). This stage for a dramatic standoff between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. The heavily favored Soviets had dominated the world for decades. The National Team won six of the previous seven Olympic Gold Medals and won several gold medals at the World Hockey Championships. After trailing the entire game, the United States tied the game at three early in the final period before taking a 4-3 lead after a goal from captain, Michael Eruzione with about 10 minutes left. The Soviets launched a furious attack but were unable to score. As the final seconds ticked away, announcer Al Michaels famously shouted "Eleven seconds, you've got ten seconds, the countdown going on right now! Morrow, up to Silk. Five seconds left in the game. Do you believe in miracles?! YES!" The win is recognized as one of the greatest upset in the history American sports. After the game, the U.S. still needed to defeat Finland to capture the gold. They went on to beat the Fins 4-2.
