miracle on ice
“Red Army” revolves around Vyacheslav “Slava” Fetisov – the captain, leader, and soul of the hockey squad. While you’ll find the perfunctory highlights and archived evidence of Russia’s hockey acumen, the film is wonderfully spliced by sidebars between Fetisov and director Gabe Polsky.
Bob Suter, a member of the “Miracle On Ice” team that won the Olympic gold medal in 1980 and the father of Minnesota Wild star Ryan Suter, died Tuesday at the age of 57.
One of the charms of the Olympics is seeing and hearing the family members of the athletes cheering from the seats and waving the national flags after traveling around the world to get there.
