On the night after one of the most improbable Game 7’s in the history of the NHL’s Stanley Cup Finals, it seemed like the perfect time to screen Miracle the story of one of the most improbable teams and games in the history of sports.

Kurt Russell starred as Herb Brooks, the coach of this team who assisted as a technical advisor throughout the shoot, but died in a car crash shortly before the movie’s release. Russell studied Herb Brooks and successfully learned his speech and mannerisms pulling off one of the great movie locker room speeches ever. Listening now still gives the chills, makes the heart swell and the tears well. :

That’s just a taste.

For the whole meal, join myself and special guest host Mylie Ketterson tonight at 8pm CST on Corn Nation’s YouTube Live Channel. Please feel free to add your comments – we can’t show them all, but we love the engagement and will get plenty up there.
