This has gone viral on the Internet, and for good reason! With Olympic fever in full swing, and the anniversary of the 1980 U.S. men’s hockey upset, this is perfect timing. This (adorable) little boy memorized the Herb Brooks rally speech. Here is a blurb from the Sports Illustrated article:
“Jim Sacco estimates that his son Josh has watched the movie Miracle 150 times.
No professional coaching. No fancy editing. No script, because Rizzo hasn’t learned to read yet — he was just 4 years old when his father filmed the speech earlier this year, making it all the more remarkable.”
I love the determination of this little boy, mixed with what a cutie-pie he is, it’s no wonder this is a hit!
P.S. He does say a word at the end that I know my boys are not allowed to say. Just a warning for parents if you have kids watching too. It’s not the worst, but it definitely falls under the “sassy” category for us!
