He was part of what many feel is the greatest moment in American Sports History. Mike Eruzione was a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey team that beat the Soviet Union and won the Gold Medal in Lake Placid, NY. Many consider the victory over the Soviets, a team that had earlier beaten an NHL All-Star team 6-0, the greatest UPSET in Olympic HISTORY. For any sport. Eruzione was captain of the team and scored the winning goal against the powerful Russians. His story captivates like few others in sports can.
Mike Eruzione is my guest this week on Amazing Americans.
