Coyotes forward Shane Doan kind of burned all of America

Wednesday May 4th, 2016

The “Miracle on Ice” is arguably the greatest moment in the history of American sports.

After all, it did take the top spot in Sports Illustrated’s ranking of the 100 greatest moments in sports. Us yankees love that story so much, we re-lived it during the Gavin O’Connor-directed film Miracle. Starring Kurt Russell as Herb Brooks, Miracle re-told the story of the men’s hockey team that won gold during the 1980 Winter Olympics. 

It may be the most formulaic sports movie ever, but Miracle was pretty well-reviewed and more or less a faithful representation of what happened in 1980.

While we may hold this story near and dear to our hearts, Arizona Coyotes forward and Canadian man Shane Doan does not, and he kind of burned all of us when asked about the movie.
