Ice The "Miracle"

(C) 2010 Stan Spire

The 2010 Winter O'limpdicks are over but there was one item I have to comment on.

Back during the 1980 Winter O'limpdicks, held here in NENYland in the yuppie town of Lake Placid, the US hockey team beat their Russian/Soviet Union opponents. It was an upset. But to get the maximum juice of the story it was called "The Miracle On Ice." Two stupid movies have been made about it.

The Miracle On Ice crap popped up during the last winter games. Inflating a notable victory into a colossal legend with all the bullshit that goes with it.

C'mon, what "miracle?" Talk about cheapening a word.

By "miracle," do they mean Angels of the Lord wielding fiery swords came down and slew the evil commie hockey players?

It's the same kind of "miracle" you get when you eat that second-rate imitation mayonnaise crap called "Miracle" Whip. Of course, the ersatz mayo comes in a jar and the hyped-up hockey victory is packaged in a giant crock.
