The Rochester Red Wings and Syracuse Chiefs were wearing 1980 USA hockey “Miracle on Ice” jerseys last night. Even the umps got into the act (picture below).
Both teams will be celebrating the 35th anniversary of one of the most iconic moments in sports history by wearing replicas of Team USA’s home and away jerseys worn during the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y. Rochester will wear the whites, while Syracuse will be in blue. No one will play the part of the USSR, but the umpires will be dressed as hockey referees.

It looks like the 49ers are going with black end zones this year.
