Miracle On Ice, Newly Discovered Original Live Call

Check out this incredible, newly discovered, original play-by-play call of The Miracle On Ice, perhaps the greatest upset in the history of team sports. When the USA shocked Russia, 4-3, at the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympics, Curt Chaplin was covering the game as a sports reporter for the ABC Radio Network. Standing on a camera platform in the crowd, he did play-by-play of the entire game into his tape recorder, capturing the event on tape forever. Now, after 25 years, these tapes have been rediscovered and matched to the video. The result is a dramatic, stirring and completely original experience for sports fans all over the world. Now you can relive the #1 sports upset of the 20th Century in a whole new way, through new eyes and a new voice. Still as fresh and exciting as the day it happened. Curt’s call has been accepted as an exhibit by the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. If you know any hockey players, fans or anyone who loves sports, send them the link. They should all see it.

  1. Wow, this is amazing! I remember when I was little my parents and their friends jumping up and down cheering, and me having no idea what was going on. Definitely one of the greatest sports moments of all time.

    • I still get chills watching this. I was 10 years old and I actually knew they won before it aired. My uncle had a tv that got odd channels on uhf or vhf whatever it was we had to tune to that got channels 56, 62, 50. Anyway, he used to get weird channels and his TV picked up a channel out of Canada that was broadcasting the game live. Anyway, even now when I watch the replays I chills.

      By far the greatest upset in the history of sports!!
