Jim Craig, 1980 US Hockey Gold Medal Goalie, Talks 40th Anniversary, Why It Wasn’t a Miracle, and Much More on this Segment of Thursday Night Tailgate
Feb 12th, 2020
Jim Craig joins us and shares memories from their incredible victories at the 1980 Winter Olympics. We talk about Bill Baker's shot to tie the game against Sweden. If that shot doesn't go in and they lost that game, even if everything else played out exactly as it happened, the Soviet Union would have won the gold medal. Hear that story plus the emotions of the Miracle on Ice game, how they were able to contain those emotions and come back 2 days later to beat Finland for the gold medal. Jim also talks about the suddenness of it all ending following their visit to the White House, and his new book, "We Win" that will be available at www.goldmedalstrategies.com soon.
