Take Two of the Miracle on Ice.

American hockey players versus Russian players almost always equals a scintillating time on the ice.

And this time around, HOPE Inc. is amping up the excitement.

Their grit, athleticism and sportsmanship are all part of what makes them great ambassadors internationally, as well as what will help them take on Russia and the other teams and win, said HOPE Inc. co-founder Bill Grommesh.

Bill and co-founder Adair Grommesh joined the Morning Show’s Emily Welker live in-studio to talk about how the team is preparing for the late October tournament and how you can help them get there — and win.
