Not a hockey fan at all but I'm fully aware of the Cold War connection and thus its iconic place in American pop culture.

I could not have cared less about hockey then or now... but we beat the Soviets! That was all that mattered.

Yes and the movie with Kurt Russel was pretty good about the team.. I remember rumblings back in the day when I was a kid but could care less.. did not understand the significance of it until years later..

I was 7 years old when that game was held so I also had zero clue about the significance of the win over the Soviets. I was too busy watching Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry and the Muppet Show. smile
