Today in History: February 22

When I do Five Things, I like to go back and look at what happened on this date in history. So here we go...

"Do you believe in miracles? Yes!"

32 years ago today in 1980, the U.S. men's olympic hockey team upset the Soviet Union for the gold medal in Lake Placid, NY. The win, widely known today as "The Miracle On Ice," was significant for the Americans, who were a team of amateurs going up against the professionals of the Soviet Red Army during the Cold War period of high tensions with the USSR. 

Dawgs Go For Hockey Glory

Speaking of hockey, the RFH Dawgs head down Ridge Road this afternoon to meet the Red Bank Regional Buccaneers at Armory Ice Rink for a Dowd Cup semifinals game. The first puck drops at 2:30 p.m.
