1980 Herb Brooks Speech Youth TeeRegular price $28.00
The pre-game speech. It's been known to motivate players to run through brick walls. But perhaps never before or since that fateful night on February 22nd, 1980, has a pre-game speech resulted in such an incredible feat for any team or individual in the modern history of sports. It could be said that it's the greatest pre-game speech of all time.
"Great moments are born from great opportunity, and that's what you have here tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here tonight. One game; if we played them ten times, they might win nine. But not this game, not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight we stay with them, and we shut them down because we can. Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world. You were born to be hockey players—every one of you, and you were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It's over. I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great hockey team the Soviets have. Screw 'em. This is your time. Now go out there and take it!"
- Herb Brooks, February 22nd, 1980
