So, I’m watching Miracle with my wife. I’ve been waiting to get this movie on DVD since the day I heard they were making it. I was too lazy to see it in the theater, so it was my first viewing. I knew the story well and as an avid sports fan, was prepared for a hell of a ride. So, there’s two minutes left in the game. The”countdown” has begun. I’m getting choaked up. Part of me knows what’s about to happen, but part of me feels like I’m watching the game live. There’s 30 seconds left in the game. I’m pumping my fist in the air. There’s 10 seconds left in the game. I’m holding my breath, waiting for the classic Al Michaels’ line, “Do you believe in miracles? YES!” There’s 4 seconds left. Just as Al begins to say it, my wife asks, “Is there three periods in hockey, or four?” She talks over him. The climax of the movie is ruined.
