I've never been a Hockey fan in my life, but I have never lost my interest on it. My love in sports it's to Baseball, but this doesn't mean that I don't know about other sports, because that's why I live for. Some of you who are reading this, maybe are asking yourself's why I'm writting here because I know nothing about Hockey. And I understand your feelings. I'm writting because I've been a sports fan since the day I was born. And after doing some researches about the all the greatest moments sports had ever had, and I saw the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. When I saw team USA winning the USSR in their own game with a team full of college kids against the best the USSR has ever had. Then I asked myself; WOW!! this is amazing!! As we all know teams are made not only because of the players, but it is more about their managers. When I first looked at the name Herb Brooks, I asked myself who is this person?, what had he achieved to have all this credit?. As we sports fan know in Puerto Rico, Basketball and Baseball are the only sports that we are one of the best in the world, so which means its rare to us to hear the name Herb Brooks. Then afterward I saw the movie Miracle, it was amazing how the director used the same footage and recreated in a different angle. And most of all Herb Brooks attitude and love to his game and family. That was unbelievable, this has been the first movie I had ever seen that recreates a series of real life incidents of something that happened in the real world. Well I just would like to say to Herb's family and friends that here in Puerto Rico his name have been heard and most of all praised as one of the greates coaches in sports history. And by myself and my family thanks for the memories and the strategies you gave for sports in about that everything is about the name in front of the jersey, not on the back of it. Because when you play the Olympics its all about playing for your country not for your name. And thats the way it should be. Thanks for everything Herbie and hope to see you soon on heaven and in our souls.
