Watch Ronald McDonald Give Allen's Minor League Hockey Team a Stirring Pep Talk

As the U.S. men's hockey team prepared to take the ice before its improbable win over the Soviet Union in the 1980 Winter Olympics, head coach Herb Brooks said a few words. His speech, or, more accurately, a Hollywood writer's imagining of it, was dramatized by Kurt Russell in the 2004 film Miracle .

Russell did a fine job, but it wasn't until the same words were spoken by Ronald McDonald in an inspirational speech to the Allen Americans, the Dallas Stars' minor-league affiliate, that their true majesty was realized.
