Coach Herb Brooks:
Address to 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team Before USSR Match
delivered by Kurt Russell
Great moments are born from great
And that's what you have here
That's what you've earned here, tonight.
If we played 'em ten times, they might win
But not this game. Not tonight.
Tonight, we skate with 'em.
Tonight, we stay with 'em, and we
shut them down because we can!
Tonight, we are the greatest
hockey team in the world.
You were born to be hockey players -- every one
And you were meant to be here tonight.
This is your time.
Their time -- is done. It's over.
I'm sick and tired of hearin'
about what a great hockey team the Soviets have.
This is your time!!
Now go out there and take it!
