Angry Former Olympic Hockey Coach Herb Brooks Dies

MINNEAPOLIS - Herb Brooks, who coached the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" Olympic hockey team that won the gold medal, died Monday in a car accident, a state official told The Associated Press. He was 66.


The U.S. team coached by Brooks defeated Russia in Lake Placid, N.Y., on its way to the gold medal. He returned to lead the 2002 U.S. Olympic hockey team to a silver medal.


Brooks was killed in a single vehicle rollover at an intersection on a highway north of the Twin Cities, the official said.


Brooks coached the Minnesota North Stars (1997-98), the New Jersey Devils (news) (1992-93) and New York Rangers (news) (1981-85), where he reached the 100-victory mark faster than any other coach in franchise history.


Born in St. Paul, Brooks played hockey at the University of Minnesota, where he later coached from 1972-9, winning three national titles and left with a 167-99-18 to lead the national team.


He was inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in 1990.

It's the top story of the day. I hear CNN this morning discuss this. He will be missed.

Lets remember; The US beat The Big Bad Russians in the semifinals of 1980. They beat Finland to win The Gold.

I think that's my biggest fear in life, dying in a car accident and a fire. I want to die in my sleep. I wonder if it involved drinking. DWI is a b*tch! :mad
