Coach Brooks Delivers Work Ethic Speech to 1980 U.S. Olympic Team
Look, I can give you all a load of crap about how how you're a better team than they are, but that's exactly what it would be. And everyone in this room knows what people are saying about our chances.
I know it. You know it.
You take their game and you shove it right back in their face. The team that is finally willing to do this is the team that has a chance to put them down.
NHL [National Hockey League] won't change their game. We will.
Rest of the world is afraid of them.
Boys, we won't be.
No one has ever worked hard enough to skate with the Soviet team for an entire game.
Gentlemen, we are gonna work hard enough.
