Hidden Mickey Monday ºoº - Miracle - T-Shirt Hidden Mickey

In honor of the XXX Olympic Games in London, England, here's an olympic-inspired Hidden Mickey from the Walt Disney Pictures film Miracle (2004). Starring Kurt Russell as head coach Herb Brooks, Miracle chronicles the gold medal winning U.S. Mens Ice Hockey team from the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York.

As an unheralded group of American amateurs and collegians defeated the heavily favored Soviet Union, sportscaster Al Michaels made the iconic call, "Do you believe in Miracles?"

Due to the overwhelming odds and Michaels' quote, that emotional medal round victory is simply known as the Miracle on Ice. However, the miracle wasn't complete until two days later, when the U.S. won the gold medal match against Finland. After beating the Soviets, the Americans defeated the Finnish team, earning the improbable gold in a 4-2 comeback win.

The Hidden Mickey appears as Mike Eruzione (played by Patrick O'Brien Demsey) gears up for the U.S. hockey tryouts. As he chats with Rob McClanahan (Nathan West), Eruzione's Mickey Mouse T-shirt becomes visible for several seconds.
