The Boys of WInter

By: Wayne Coffey


They were the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team, a blue-collar bunch led by an unconventional coach. Their “Miracle on Ice” has become a national fairy tale, but the real Cinderella story is even more remarkable. The story is about olympic hockey when every other country was using professional hockey players and the USA were the only other team that used amature/ collage kids.

He details the fiercely determined coach, Herb Brooks—and portraits of the boys with the fluid action of the game itself. Coffey also traces the paths of the players and coaches since their stunning victory, examining how the Olympic events affected their lives.
