Cute guys and hockey in a movie. I hate it when that happens.

I saw it today. I thought it was really good. I've never been a huge hockey fan but I wanted to see it because Herb Brooks coached in Minnesota. Last night I had dinner with the family and my dad and grandpa went on and on about Gopher hockey so it was a nice history lesson for me leading into the movie.

Are there any real (professional) hockey players in Miracle or are they actors who can skate?

There was something on ESPN last night about how they used "hockey players with an acting gene, not actors who happened to like hockey" or something.

Eddie Cahill, who played Jim Craig, is the only one who's done anything. He was Rachel's assistant Tag on "Friends."

I'm going to see it Wednesday night with my work buddies.

When I saw a picture of Kurt Russell as Herb Brooks I was immediately struck by how much he (Kurt) looks like Bobby Orr. I think it was the hair.

In an article in the LA Times today, some of Herb Brooks' friends and family talk about how much Kurt Russell reminds them of Herb in the movie. Apparently, it's an uncanny resemblance in mannerisms and attitude.

I wonder if the movie can really capture the enormity of this gold medal. In 1980, the sense of pride in the US was measure by negative numbers.

His family has been quated as saying that the only thing Russel messed up is the part in his hair. Herb combed it the other way.

I CANNOT wait to see this tomorrow. I am seeing it with the lacrosse team that I coach. Motivational thing.

I'm not a hockey fan but I want to see this movie. This was quite possibly the biggest upset in the history of sports, period. Imagine some team of amateur basketball players beating the Dream Team. Amazing.

We'll see. That's right, just the year before Jimmy Carter had made his infamous "malaise" speech. I heard someone who'd seen it interviewed on the radio yesterday, and he said it was about the whole situation in 1980, not just the hockey team. I can't wait to see it.

I saw it last night!

So, they are showing the tryouts, and I JSUT about jumnped out of my seat when the kid playing Mike Ramsey (number 5 and current assistant coach for the Minnesota Wild) comes on. I shout (IN THE theater) "HOLY CRAP...that's Joe Cure!!!"

I coached the kid two years ago - he was one of my lacrosse players. AMAZING guy - but not a guy I expected to see on the big screen. And, he is a real hockey player...and had VERY few lines (although...he was in the school play too...all around GREAT kid...one of my favorite players).

Great movie. I enjoyed it. It is VERY motivational as a coach. Herb seemed like he had his crap together.

The other cool thing...It was funny to see my company's name pop up at the end when there was a "where are they now" segment. One of the players on the 1980 squad is one of our pilots. I had no clue...I have to see what he flies and if he ever comes my way!
