Team USA inspiration?

Was a 5-year-old kid the inspiration behind the U.S. men’s hockey team’s shocking win over Team Canada yesterday?

YouTube sensation Josh Sacco, the Tennessee native who delivers the Herb Brooks speech from the movie “Miracle,” in a popular online video, reprised the speech for the American players during a team dinner Saturday night in Vancouver. How cool is that?

Sacco’s clip has been viewed more than two million times since hitting YouTube last year. He even appeared on the “Ellen” show last fall. Now, he may have even tipped the scales in the Olympic hockey tournament.
