Jamie Farr at the 1980 Miracle on Ice

The hockey game between the United States and the Soviet Union played on February 22nd, 1980 in Lake Placid, NY as part of the 1980 Winter Olympics is considered one of the most incredible sports stories of all time. The underdog U.S. team beat the Soviets and went on beat Finland to win gold. ESPN put together the following retrospective to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the game. One of those interview is Jamie Farr, who attended the game. Start watching around 0:55 to see Farr in the stands. He talks about his experience again at 1:55 and 6:00 and maybe at other points during the video.

Sports fans may want to watch the entire video. M*A*S*H will probably only be interested in the Jamie Farr segments as something of a curio. Thanks to Shawn for e-mailing me about this video.
