Today Show: 1980s Olympic Hockey Team Auctioning Equipment

Mike Eruzione became an American hero after he scored the game winning goal against the Soviet Union in the 1980 Olympic games, a hockey game that was about more than just hockey, and now you can own some of that American history. Eruzione told the Today Show he is auctioning off the Miracle On Ice jersey, along with some other gear and the stick that took the game winning shot.

Eruzione isn’t auctioning the equipment because he is in need of more money but more because he just wanted to give the equipment to someone who might display it, saying he has kept it in his attic all these years. He has other reasons as well.
