Very proud of the fact that every American medalist at the 1980 winter Olympics received a brand new, full size American flag, courtesy of the Woodmen of the World.  A small group of us from WOW Lodge 462 were there as part of the ceremony surrounding the arrival of the torch on Feb. 8.  As part of the ceremonies we presented a flag to the local Olympic Organizing Committee, and delivered the 100's of flags that would later be presented to the winning American medalists.

Info on the video:

On February 22, 1980, the United States Olympic hockey team pulled off one of the greatest upsets in sports history, defeating the Soviet Union, 4-3.

Back in 2005, ESPN replayed this game and the gold medal game against Finland as part of the 25th anniversary of these Olympics.

Al Michaels and Ken Dryden on the call.
