The 1980 Olympic game against Russia is, without a doubt, the coolest sporting event I've ever seen in my entire life, and I saw it in it's entirety for the first time almost 20 years after it happened.

HBO did a special on it a few years ago. If you ever find it at a video store, it's a definetly worth a watch. The hair on my arms were getting sore from all the goosebumps. And if you don't know much about Herb Brooks, it is a must-watch.

Too bad I wasn't alive in the Miracle on Ice, but even today, you hear so much about it. RIP, Herb Brooks.

Well, that certainly is a tragic surprise. Two great hockey and sporting icons in one summer have passed us by: Roger Neilson and Herb Brooks.

Greetings --

Here's a couple of video-links from KSTP Channel-5 Minneapolis

Herb Brooks Remembered --
http://www.kstp.com/viewer/viewerpage.php?Art_ID=112608

The Scene of Brooks' Fatal Mini-Van accident--
http://www.kstp.com/viewer/viewerpage.php?Art_ID=112694

The links require Internet Explorer 4-and-above plus Windows Media Player. The videos start by themselves. A 15/20-second advertisement preceeds the actual news report.

Thanks for the videos, Franko..

It sounds like something happened to him that made him swerve off the road.. Maybe he had a heart attack.
