The miracle about Miracle is that it gets so many details right in telling its 24-year-old story about the historic victory of the U.S. hockey team at the 1980 Olympic Games. It's typical for Hollywood to compromise such period details as hairstyles and fashion when catering to a contemporary audience, but Miracle looks and feels right in every detail, capturing the downbeat mood of post-Watergate America while showing how obsessively determined Minnesota hockey coach Herb Brooks (Kurt Russell) managed to assemble a once-in-a-lifetime team and whip them into a victorious frenzy over their Soviet champion opponents. With sharp support from Patricia Clarkson (as Brooks's wife) and Noah Emmerich (as his long-suffering assistant), Russell grounds the film with a well-balanced combination of aloofness, intimidation, and closely guarded strategy. No doubt the real Brooks (who died in a car accident shortly after filming completed) would have approved. Thanks to director Gavin O'Connor (Tumbleweeds) and the producers of the similarly laudable sports films Remember the Titans and The Rookie, Miracle brings plenty of heart--and historical accuracy--to an old, familiar formula. --Jeff Shannon

It worked great!

There used to be a Miracle Space Ship (rocket slide) at this park in the 1970's, which is why I went here. I expected the rocket slide to be long gone, but as hoped, other old equipment remained.

These are from the early 1980's, near the end of their production runs. The tread isn't diamond plate, but a dot pattern. The ski slide on the Jack & Jill is a cheaper, stamped one-piece.

Do You Believe in Miracles? The Story of the 1980 U.S. Hockey Team

The story of the 1980 U.S. hockey team. In February of 1980, amidst growing Cold War fears, the U.S. hockey team created an unforgettable moment of national pride when they miraculously beat the Soviets o the ice-a win selected by Sports Illustrated as the #1 sports moment of the century. Revisiting Lake Placid twenty-one years later, Do You Believe in Miracles? takes a look at the team's emotional climb to gold while exploring the tumultuous political and social landscape of the time. Interviews include U.S. players Jim Craig and Mike Eruzione, coach Herb Brooks, Soviet Players Vladislav Tretiak and Boris Mihailov, American hostage Barry Rosen, and Broadcaster Al Michaels. * Actors: Craig R. Whitney, Walter Mondale, John Powers (VII), Jack O'Callahan, John Harrington (VI) * Format: Closed-captioned, Color, DVD-Video, NTSC * Language: English, Spanish * Number of discs: 1 * Studio: HBO Home Video * DVD Release Date: January 8, 2002 * Run Time: 60 minutes

You don't need to know anything about hockey to be moved by this hourlong documentary about one of the greatest upsets in sports history: the United States' defeat of the vaunted Russian Olympic hockey team at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. The film recounts the David vs. Goliath matchup between the Americans (essentially a group of college kids molded into a team by coach Herb Brooks, also the U.S. hockey coach in the 2002 Olympic games) and the Russians, professionals who had won four straight Olympic golds. The story is retold in interviews with the people who lived it, including Brooks and several of the American players, sportscaster Al Michaels (who uttered the title line as the game ended), and key Russian players. Do You Believe in Miracles? is a solid blend of sports and history that focuses on the human element in one of the great underdog victories of all time. --Marshall Fine
