The 1980 Miracle on Ice: Dan Brooks reflects on his dad

"My dad was so stoic. I remember when the countdown took place, the play was in the other end, I go, ‘I want to see what he does.' So 4-3-2-1: I'm looking at him. I remember he jumped in the air ... and boom he went down and boom he just hightailed it off the bench and into the bowels of the building. ... He just went crazy for that one split second moment."
