    The Miracle on Ice. 1980 Olympics. A team of college kids from the USA defeated a Soviet team that was stacked with some of the best players in the world. Nobody gave the USA team an ice cubes chance in hell of winning, yet they pulled off one of the biggest upsets in sports history. They then went on to win the Gold medal.
