Score a Piece of Olympic History! Miracle on Ice Seats Up For Grabs
You can score a piece of Olympic history. The seats where fans watched the Miracle on Ice in Lake Placid are up for grabs.
In 1980, the U.S. hockey team did something many didn't think was possible. They beat the four-time defending Olympic gold medalist Russian team in a miracle game in Lake Placid.
USA Wins Gold
The youngest team in the tournament, full of amateur players, miraculously defeated the professional Soviets, who were favored to take home the gold. They'd have to settle for silver after team USA went on to beat Finland to stand on the top of the podium at the 1980 Olympics.
Miracle on Ice
The victory went on to become not only the most iconic moment at the Olympics but in all of sports history. In 2004, Disney released 'Miracle,' a movie starring Kurt Russell as coach Herb Brooks, who died before the film was complete.
Herb Brooks Arena
The ice rink at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid was renamed the Herb Brooks arena and is now undergoing a major renovation. The seats where sports fans watched team captain Mike Eruzione fire home “the shot heard round the world” during game three against Russia are being removed and can be yours.
