HBO to rerun two Olympics-related documentaries

Speaking of hockey movies (see post below), some readers were disappointed "Miracle on Ice,'' the 1981 Karl Malden version of the 1980 Olympic team's story, was not included on the list.

Yet another version of that story can be watched on HBO at 7 p.m. Tuesday when the channel replays “Do You Believe in Miracles? The Story of the 1980 U.S Hockey Team,'' a 2001 documentary about the events of Feb. 22, 1980, in Lake Placid.

(I never have been to Lake Placid. I'm going this summer.)

Speaking of Olympics-related HBO documentaries, at 7 p.m. July 8, you can watch "Fists of Freedom: The Story of the ’68 Summer Games,” a show that first appeared about a decade ago.

I vaguely remember the '68 Olympics. I should watch the show. But I think I'm on vacation that week. I really, really need to not blog on my vacations this summer. Please remind me.

(Now I'm hearing Dave Lennon's Boston accent on SNY from the Mets' locker room in Anaheim. How can the mayor of New York City, a Yankees radio voice and Newsday's Mets beat writer all have Boston accents? It just ain't right.)
