Do You Believe in Miracles? The Story of the 1980 U.S. Hockey Team - movie DVD cover picture
Perhaps The Greatest Coaching Job in the History of Sports


A great chronicle of those heady days in Lake Placid nearly 25 years ago. Everyone seemed to find something they liked in this improbable victory. For me it was the coaching job turned in by Herb Brooks. It may be the greatest coaching job in the history of sports. Here are excerpts from an AP article about the late Coach Brooks which says it all:

Herb Brooks was behind the bench when the American Olympic Hockey team pulled off the greatest upset ever at Lake Placid NY in 1980, beating the mighty Soviets with a squad of mostly college players.That shocking victory, plus beating Finland for the gold medal, assured the team a place in immortality.

The young U.S. team was given no chance against a veteran Soviet squad that had dominated international hockey for years and had routed the Americans 10-3 in an exhibition game at Madison Square Garden the week before the Olympics.

On Feb. 22, 1980, the U.S. team scored with 10 minutes to play to take a 4-3 lead against the Soviets. As the final seconds ticked away, announcer Al Michaels exclaimed, "Do you believe in miracles? Yes!"

It remains one of the most famous calls in history.
Brooks' leadership helped turn a ragtag team into champions. He had hand picked each player.

"You're looking for players whose name on the front of the sweater is more important than the one on the back," Brooks once said. "I look for these players to play hard, to play smart and to represent their country."

Interviewed years later on why he headed to the locker room shortly after the Miracle on Ice, he said he wanted to leave the ice to his players, who deserved it.

Players kept a notebook of "Brooksisms," sayings the coach used for motivation, such as: "You're playing worse and worse every day and right now you're playing like it's next month."

But, before playing the Soviets, Brooks told his players: "You're meant to be here. This moment is yours. You're meant to be here at this time."

"He was ahead of his time," team member Ken Morrow said. "All of his teams overachieved because Herbie understood how to get the best out of each player and make him part of a team. And like everyone who played for him, I became a better person because I played for Herb Brooks."

Born in St. Paul, Brooks played hockey at the University of Minnesota, where he later coached from 1972 to 1979, winning three national titles. He was inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in 1990.

When Brooks decided to coach the 2002 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team at Salt Lake City, he was asked why he would return after writing the most improbable story in hockey. "Maybe I'm sort of like the players -- there's still a lot of little boy in me," Brooks said. "And maybe I'm a little smarter now than I was before for all the stupid things I've done."

Brooks was the last player cut on the 1960 U.S. gold medal team, and unfairly so, the victim of favoritism by his coach. But he persevered, and played on the United States Olympic Hockey Team in 1964 and 1968. And when he coached the 1980 Olympic Team, he did not repeat the mistake made by his 1960 coach. It was difficult and painful, but he did the right thing selecting the players for his 1980 team. And as they say, the rest is history. Or was it really a miracle? That is left for each reader to decide for themselves.

In an interview at his White Bear Lake home not long before his untimely death, Brooks described to the Minneapolis Star Tribune about watching one of his favorite movies, "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

"You know, Willie Wonka said it best: We are the makers of dreams, the dreamers of dreams," Brooks said. "We should be dreaming. We grew up as kids having dreams, but now we're too sophisticated as adults, as a nation. We stopped dreaming. We should always have dreams. I'm a dreamer."

This DVD deserves to be in every sports fans' library. With it I recommend the book, One Goal: A Chronicle of the 1980 Olympic Hockey Team, if you can find a copy of this sought after collectible.

A Great Movie


I think the green mile was a very well done movie. I thought that it was sort of fun to compare with the shawshank redemption, because they have some similar things about them other than the fact that they were both based on a novel by Stephen King and both directed by Frank Darabont. It was also interesting that The green mile made you sad and the Shawshank Redemption made you want to clap at the end of each movies. I think that all and all the Shawshank Redemption is a better movie but The Green Mile is worthy of a good review.

Everyone hates a critic, now we know why...


It is the folks that didn't find Mr. Thornton engaging, entertaining and, at times very funny that are the duds regarding this movie. Did any of you hear Daniel Lanois' soundtrack? That alone might provide a basis for not slamming the work. Maybe it's those of you who have seen too many movies, that don't know what's good. For what it was, it was a very entertaining film. I guess if every line isn't perfectly written, acted, and directed you all have your chance to whine. Get out and get some fresh air, maybe you'll see that NOTHING is perfect, not even movies. Anyway, perfection has nothing to do with entertainment in the end. Great flick...

She has a crush on a man who passes by every day through the subway she works at. Mopely working on Christmas she sees him get pushed onto the subway tracks and she saves his life from an oncoming express. Wanting to see him at the hospital, she gets misunderstood by a nurse that she's the man's fiance. It all goes from there... Watch it and you'll get a timeless and hilarious Christmas movie, not just to watch at Christmas time but for all times.

Jurassic Park (Widescreen Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
A Cinematic Mile Stone in Technology and....Imagination


Steven Speilburg has changed us all. He's kept us out the water for nearly 30 years with JAWS, He's helped us make contact with CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, He's taken us on a journey with Indiana Jones to find the ark of the covenunt with RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK,he's introduced us with a friend 300 million lightyears away in E.T. and now he's brought us to a remote island and showed us the most majestic yet terrifing creatures that we could only see in fragments of our imagination with JURASSIC PARK. JURASSIC PARK is probably one of the greatest movies of all time and it's the 7th top grossing box-office hit in movie history. Dinosaurs them selves astound us. Even their fossil remainments haunt us and awe us with their great sizes and shapes of many assortments.
The DVD of Jurassic Park is rather good. With over 75 minutes of behind the scene features and featurettes. But it needs some improvments. It sould have been produced under the DTS sound system rather than DOLBEY DIGITAL. DTS has clearer and crisper sound and the picture has alot more quality. So try to by the DTS standard if you can. Eitherway the dvds are the same just different quallity of sound.
Now you now the story, peolple on Island, park on island, people in park, park has dinosaurs, dinosaurs get out of park, people get chased by dinosaurs, dinosaurs eat a couple of people, and the remaining people get of the island and all the dinosaurs die. Okay? But otherwise than having good visual effects, fun roller coaster plot, and good actors, JURASSIC PARK has a fonominal soundtrack. John Williams has brought us THE JAWS SAGA, STAR WARS SAGA, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, INDIANA JONES TRILOGY, SUPERMAN, JFK, E.T., and of cource the JURASSIC PARK TRILOGY. The themes have that authentic John Williams style with it's exciting and thrilling yet sailient themes. Expessualy the end when the Helicopter flies into the sun set. A slight piano conceirto fades into a majestic and most absolutly beutiful orchestra ensemble then later into the triumphent trumpet/french horn fanfare and the into a mysterious end with a deep euphonium and piano ending . The music is wounderfull and with out John William's tallent for writing motion picture scores it wouldn't have been truly JURASSIC PARK.(while your here on Amazon.com buy the sound track while your at it.)
So, its got amazing special effects, fun plot, great cast, and a monumental soundtrack. This is JURASSIC PARK (hum the themes now.)
