5 Year Old's "Herb Brooks" Speech Inspires U.S. Olympic Hockey Team

The U.S. Olympic hockey team is coming off an incredible 5-3 win over Canada Sunday in what is being called the biggest American hockey win since the "Miracle on Ice" in 1980, when the U.S. defeated the Soviet Union.

A speech coach Herb Brooks gave to the team before the game proved to be inspirational. It was depicted in the movie "Miracle." And now, a 5-year-old boy has recreated it (filmed when he was only 4). The video is a YouTube sensation, with more than 2-million hits.

Recently, little Josh Sacco delivered it to the current 2010 team at a dinner. And perhaps it inspired them, too.

Here's Sacco's YouTube video:


And just for comparison, here is the movie version, with Kurt Russell playing Brooks:
