Video | Five-year-old inspires U.S. hockey team

Posted by Seattle Times staff

If you've seen the movie "Miracle", you may recognize Herb Brooks' inspiring speech, (performed by Kurt Russell), to the U.S. men's hockey team before they took on the USSR in the 1980 Olympics.

Five-year-old Josh Sacco's YouTube performance of the speech has gained more than 2 million views. In October 2009, he performed the speech on The Ellen Degeneres Show.

And more recently, he spoke at the U.S. men's hockey team dinner -- perhaps inspiring them to their 5-3 victory Sunday afternoon against Canada.
