Miracle Memories

Today (Feb. 22) is the 35th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice (the historic US defeat of the USSR hockey team in the 1980 Olympics). I remember watching the game on TV... but I already knew the final score. ABC tape-delayed the afternoon game until prime time. In those ancient, pre-Internet days, my 13-year-old self was forced to listen for hourly updates in real time on the CBS Radio newscasts (on KYW 1060 AM in Philadelphia). And now the Miracle on Ice is closer to World War II than to today. Time flies, as they say.
