Once upon a time, they taught us to believe. They were the 1980 US Olympic hockey team, a blue-collar bunch led by an unconventional coach, and they engineered perhaps the greatest sports moment of the 20th century. Their "Miracle on Ice" has become a national fairy tale, but the real Cinderella story is even more remarkable. It is a legacy of hope, hard work, and homegrown triumph. It is a chronicle of everyday heroes who just wanted to play hockey happily ever after. It is still unbelievable.

The Boys of Winter is an evocative account of the improbable American adventure in Lake Placid, New York. Drawing on hundreds of hours of interviews, Wayne Coffey explores the untold stories of the US upstarts, their Soviet opponents, and the forces that brought them together.

That is the easiest way to put itThis seems to be so important to the story because the Americans were the smaller, weaker, younger, and less experienced team in the 1980 OlympicsYou must select a newsletter to subscribe toThis book is a must-read for any and every hockey fan out thereamateurs, communism vsSo one day during practice herb brooks lines them all up on the goal line and makes them skate non stopBut, I would not say there is any ground breaking revelation and most of this book is not a new account simply the same story just told differentlyAgent, Andrew StuartThe format was enjoyable because each chapter focused on a player's life story before and after the game and after, gave a play by play of the highlights of each period and intermission of the gameJun 14, 2015 Anna rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorite-books, nonfiction, summer-2015 One of my favorite books of all time

Someone had to step up for the Americans and lead them and this is shown well in this passage, John Rothstein was Bakers teammate on the Grand Rapids team that won the Minnesota state high school championship in 1975, Baker starring on defense, Rothstein up front, with two of the fastest skates anyone had ever seenI disliked how the book seemed to drag some scenes on, and occasionally lost my interestThat team, to have any chance at all, needed a maniac in charge, not a nice guy, and in Brooks it found an inspired oneNo one knows that how many they skated that day but it was over 100 until the captain spoke up and said Mike Eurozonie, Coach Herb Brooks asked who do you play for? He said: United Sates of America! and after over 3 hours of skating they were doneThe 1980 US Olympic hockey team was all college hockey players from the University of Wisconsin, Boston University, University of Minnesota-Duluth and th The Boys of Winter was an amazing story told about the 1980 US Olympic hockey team who beat the Russians, a hockey super power, for the game to go to the gold medal roundAt the games, Brooks' US team upset the heavily favored Soviet team in a match that came to be known as the 'Miracle on Ice'It came in 1954 in Stockholm in their first appearance in the world championshipsIt explains the journey of the team and how they fought through adversityCoffey deftly balances the joyous American saga with the perspective of the astonished silver medalists.Told with warmth and an uncanny eye for detail, The Boys of Winter is an intimate, perceptive portrayal of one Friday night in Lake Placid and the enduring power of the extraordinary.Review"In this well-written and thoroughly researched story of the 1980 Olympic gold-medal winning hockey team, New York Daily News sportswriter Coffey does much more than simply evoke memoriesSep 08, 2014 Michelle Connolly rated it it was amazing DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?This quote perfectly captures the whole story of the 1980 Mens Olympic Hockey team, the definition of an underdog team

So scared they could shake out of their skates and didnt want to really be there playing them, to beating up on and overall beating them in what the world thought was their sportRight then and there proves that they can come together as a team and actually do something specialIt was a perfect reflection of the movie, and truly told a great story, all in just a bookThe Book was very inspiring it shows that is you try hard go as far as you can you can accomplish anythingA theme of this book is that hard work, perseverance, and hope can accomplish great things, on and off the ice, because even though the USA wasnt the most talented team, Herb Brooks taught them that they needed those three things if they wanted to win.My favorite character in the book was the goalie of team USA, Jim Craig272 ppEspecially Jim Craig's who forwarded the story to the author Wayne Coffeyscores their forth goal and then the clock winds down and the team have beat the soviets in the semi finals.Then later the U.S

They should of beat themhockey team has been mythologized in print and on screen for almost twenty-five yearsFirst time the hockey world was put on notice that South of the border in the U.S.AThe Soviets were stunned, but many drank congratulatory cocktails to the Americans later that night, which was classy of them.It's kind of funny how the day after I finished reading this book, I read how Jim Craig is putting all of his Olympic stuff up for auction for about $6 millionThe Soviets did not look like much, at first glance, in their well-worn red sweaters and matching red helmets, their chunky skates that looked like Sputnik-era hand-me-downsIt wasnt regarded as one of Canadas stronger entries, but what difference would that make? The Soviet Union did not have a single indoor hockey arena in the entire countryOlympic hockey team, a bunch led by an unconventional coach, and they engineered what Sports Illustrated called the greatest sports moment of the twentieth century 48a4f088c3
