The release of the new movie, "Miracle," takes ESPN Radio's Mike Greenberg back to a time when he could stand up and say it loud: "I'm a fan of American sports, and I'm proud." But times have changed. We'll never see another Miracle on Ice. We'll never hear Greenberg chant "U-S-A" again, either.

Tim Keown's List Hollywood Jock

8]  1972 UCLA Bruins (30-0)
Bill Walton. Keith Wilkes. Swen Nater. Henry Bibby. Is it any wonder the Bruins won their regular-season games by an average of 30.3 points?

Feb. 11 Sixers 6 Wizards 188.5
