The Miracle....

I was out in Lake Placid for an ice skating event. The rink I spent the most time in was the site of the 1980 Miracle on Ice. Well, even though I am an American citizen, I was born in Canada and this rink does not hold the same emotion as the 72 Summit Series Win in Moscow (Luzhniki Ice Palace). Just before I left the rink, I ignored some barriers :)eek:) and went up into the end to take this shot.

Being an American and having watched this "miracle" unfold when I was in high school I would say this shot has a lot of emotion for me. Two of the players on the US team, Mark Johnson and Bobby Suter, were from Madison, WI (and were UW Badgers). I grew up near Madison (and ended up going to UW) thus there was a connection I could relate to as well.

Well done! I love it!
