Little girl nails Herb Brooks’ Miracle speech (video)

Miracle on Ice

22 Feb 1980: The USA Team celebrates their 4-3 victory over Russia in the semi-final of the Ice Hockey competition of the 1980 Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid, USA. The game was dubbed “The Miracle on Ice”, and the USA went on to win the gold medal

Maybe it wasn’t quite on the level of 4-year-old Joshua Sacco, but an unnamed girl nonetheless impressed Jim Craig with her rendition of Herb Brooks’ locker-room speech before the Miracle on Ice.

She was tripped up by the word “Soviet,” unsurprising since the Soviet Union fell about 20 years before her birth. Everything else was just about spot on.

Check out her video and then Sacco’s viral rendition from 2009 and Kurt Russell‘s portrayal in the 2004 Disney film “Miracle.”
