Herb Brooks Arena - Lake Placid, NY

Well, it had to happen eventually. With all of the recent nostalgia about the 1980 USA Olympic team, it looks like the architect of providing for that "miracle" will be honored by having the Lake Placid Olympic Rink named in his honor. View the Memorial Plaque Here

With a thank you to ESPN.com I have learned that Herb Brooks has finally been honored appropriately for being the godfather of USA hockey. I don't think I could properly do this again when everything said about Coach Brooks has already been said elsewhere.

In a related note, I wrote another blog entry about something like this. The Gov't. in Minnesota wanted to rename the National Hockey Center at St. Cloud University.
