In February 1980, the U.S. Olympic hockey team won a game against the Soviet Union. It was a game they weren't supposed to win -- because nobody was supposed to beat the USSR, who'd dominated Olympic hockey for decades. The unbelievable nature of the victory inspired sportscaster Al Michaels to exclaim:

Do you believe in miracles? Yes!

Those six words summed up the emotions experienced by millions of viewers worldwide. Michaels' line became one of the most famous calls in the history of sports broadcasting, and the game became known as the "Miracle on Ice."
