CDunn Posted January 13, 2004 Share Posted January 13, 2004 The new movie about the 1980 U.S. hockey team, Miracle, messed up bigtime on the uniforms. This past week I got a copy of Amercian Hockey magazine in the mail and on the cover is a picture of goalie Jim Craig from 1980 in the blue uni. Also on the cover is the actor who plays him in the movie modeling the same scene, also in the blue uni. However, the uniforms are very different. the real one has a striping patern of thin white, thick red, thin white. the one the actor is wearing is thick white, thin red, thick white. The collar of the real jersey is red-white-red, while the one in the movie is white-red-white. Finally, the font of USA is different. It's most notable on the S where the top is clearly different. It's got that little cut in it like the bottom. i don't know how to explain it. On the white jerseys, i wasn't able to really compare real with movie, but I think the nameplate is a little too high. How could they make such obvious errors? My scanner is down but I think every USA hockey member gets this magazine, so there should be others who can scan it. I'll check the internet later and compare the white unis and try and find more errors, if any, on the blue ones. In a movie about the 1980 USA hockey team, you'd think they'd at least get the uniforms right.P.S. I won't be responding much to this or looking at the unis for comparison this week because this is exam week for me. I think I go to the only school left that does exams after Christmas.
