Buzz And Rizzo From The 1980 Miracle On Ice Join Levack [INTERVIEW]
This Monday, February 22nd will mark the 41st year anniversary of "The Miracle On Ice" in the 1980 Winter Olympics. An amazing group of amateur hockey players upset the greatest hockey team in the world with a 4-3 victory over the Soviet Union. In honor of one of if not the greatest upsets of all time, Buzz Schneider and Mike Eruzione joined us to let us know what they're up to now and if they ever get tired of hearing "DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?!"
Buzz Schneider Played Left Wing for Team USA and scored a game-tying goal in the first period. Buzz has partnered with Northway Brewing and Saratoga Eagle to bring us "Miracle on Ice Beer". Partial proceeds will help out charities like the Herb Brooks Foundation and help build a statue in Lake Placid to honor the 1980 USA Men's Hockey team winning Gold. Buzz Schneider, Jeff Vukelic, and Scott Ferris join us via Zoom on today's show to relive The Miracle On Ice and tell us how a beer can create a miracle.
Aside from Buzz joining us the Captain of the 1980 team Mike Eruzione who scored the game-winning goal against the Soviets called in! The Captain still has it and his stories about his family and life as a gold medalist need to be heard. Lucky for you all you need to do is click play below to hear it.
