Mike “Rizzo” Eruzione was born October 25, 1954. Mike is an Italian-American former ice hockey player who was the captain of the 1980 Winter Olympics United States national team that defeated the Soviet Union in the famous Miracle on Ice game. Eruzione retired from competition after the Olympics, despite contract offers from the New York Rangers, stating that he’d reached the pinnacle of achievement already. Eruzione then became a television broadcaster, grabbing the microphone at Rangers and New Jersey Devils games and for the NHL on USA Network, and going on to comment at five Olympic Games, working for both ABC and CBS. Eruzione returned to his alma mater of Boston University to be the assistant coach for the hockey team for three seasons, and where he currently works as Director of Special Outreach. He is a member of several halls of fame. Currently, he is a part-owner of the USHL Lancers franchise, which is located in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and a motivational speaker. He also helps the Winthrop High School ice hockey team during the winter. On January 19, 2007, Eruzione appeared on the new version of the game show I’ve Got a Secret. His secret was that he was the captain of the 1980 U.S. Men’s Olympic hockey team. He failed to stump the panel when former major leaguer Billy Bean guessed it.
