The United States’ men’s hockey team, consisting of amateurs, defeated the U.S.S.R. team, consisting of professionals, in the Winter Olympics.

I first heard about it while watching the Celina High School boys’ basketball team play.  When the result was announced over the public address system, the whole Celina Fieldhouse went crazy.

I can’t believe it’s been 38 years since that happened.
