Excellent testimonials from Olympic stars. Mike Eruzioni captain of the 1980 Miracle on Ice team does a nice job of praising Romney. But Derek Parra, a speed staking gold medalist from the 2002 games that Romney saved, is the show stopper, with his recollection of the opening ceremony in which he carried the tattered flag that had flown at the World Trade Center.
That’s two powerful themes — the Olympics and 9/11 — tied together. Throw in the Miracle on Ice, and the emotional quotient couldn’t get much higher.
