[Miracle] Most Inspirational Speech in Sports History

Remember the Titans[Remember the Titans] Brother

Coach Herb Brooks' game speech before the Gold Medal match against the Soviet Union in the 1980 Winter Olympics.

And the 1980 Winter Olympics were to be made even more difficult because the U.S. - Soviet relations were at all-time lows due to the on-going Cold War.

So, in order to prep these college players for the biggest game of their lives, Coach Brooks spoke these words.

"Great moments are born from great opportunity, and that's what you have here tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here tonight. One game; if we played them ten times, they might win nine. But not this game, not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight we stay with them, and we shut them down because we can. Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world. You were born to be hockey players—every one of you, and you were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It's over. I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great hockey team the Soviets have. Screw 'em. This is your time. Now go out there and take it!"

I feel like this is the most inspirational speeches of all time. What are your all-time favorite speeches in sports?
