Ten random things: February 22

Ten members of the 1980 Soviet Olympic hockey team:

  1. Boris Mikhailov
  2. Vladislav Tretiak
  3. Viacheslav Fetisov
  4. Vladimir Krutov
  5. Aleksei Kasatonov
  6. Sergei Makarov
  7. Vladimir Myshkin
  8. Aleksandr Maltsev
  9. Helmuts Balderis
  10. Vladimir Petrov

Today is the 26th anniversary of the "Miracle on Ice," the men's ice hockey game in the 1980 Winter Olympics in which the U.S. team defeated the highly favored Soviet team, paving the way for them to win the gold medal by defeating Finland in the next game.
