‘Miracle on Ice’ Captain to Newsmax: LSU Should Have Made Anthem a Priority

Louisiana State University women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey should have made the national anthem a priority instead of skipping it ahead of Monday’s NCAA Tournament game against the University of Iowa, 1980 Miracle on Ice hockey captain Mike Eruzione told Newsmax Tuesday.

“Most times, when you’re playing in big games, and I’ve been obviously involved with the NCAA hockey situations, you normally get an itinerary of the events, what’s taking place, what’s happening, so they had to have known there was going to be the anthem,” Eruzione said during an appearance on Newsmax’s “American Agenda.”

“Why would one team show up and not the other?” he continued. “She said it was unintentional; it should have been a priority, in my opinion. That should have been the first thing. I know they have a sequence of events that they go through before a game and how they prepare, but once you know there’s an anthem being played, that should be a priority in your locker room for your team to be out there. It’s just another way of getting frustrated for a country of people that are getting a little disgusted that we’re doing things like this, and these things are happening.”
