Even people who have never watched a hockey game know about the “Miracle on Ice,” when a team comprised mostly of American college students defeated the powerhouse Russian team in the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, New York. The captain and hero of that team was Mike Eruzione. Born in Massachusetts, Eruzione was one of the oldest players on the U.S. team at age 26. A former star at Boston University, Eruzione was playing minor league hockey before the Olympics. And although he was offered an NHL contract after winning the gold medal, many sports fans are surprised to learn that he never played in the NHL. Perhaps smartly, the man who scored the winning goal in the amazing upset over Russia decided to retire from hockey at his peak. Since his retirement, Mike Eruzione has worked for ABC and NBC as an Olympic commentator and has also broadcast games for the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils.
Even though it’s been nearly 30 years since Lake Placid, a Mike Eruzione speaker appearance still generates tremendous drawing power.
