You Won't Believe Where This One Came From! :)

First of all I stumbled on to this great video on Youtube from a couple of years ago. Its fantastic. It comes from the great hockey movie Miracle. For my personal blogging purposes, I share with you this inspirational speech...NOW TAKE IT!!

"Great moments... are born from great opportunity. And that's what you have here, tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here tonight. One game. If we played 'em ten times, they might win nine. But not this game. Not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight, we stay with them. 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 of you. 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 hearing about what a great hockey team the Soviets have. Screw 'em. This is your time. Now go out there and take it." -  Herb Brooks coach of the 1980 USA Hockey Team

                                              Aka "Miracle on The Ice"

Isn't that great?  Now watch this little guy named Jacob at the time he was only five years old and could probably barely read, but he memorized this speech, and might I add he looks like a little Herb Brooks.  Now go out there people...and take it. Whatever that may be for you.


  1. I LOVE motivational movies like that! They make you want to get up and conquer the world! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Its always nice to hear a good motivation...whether we are hockey players or not! :) Thanks for your comments!
