Four years ago, Josh Sacco entered our lives after his YouTube video reciting the famous Kurt Russell/Herb Brooks speech from the movie "Miracle" went viral. It's an inspiring scene from the film, so it came as no surprise that it was used for motivation by many teams afterward.

Earlier this month, the CHL's Allen Americans held "McDonald's Night", where they wore special Ronald McDonald jerseys that were auctioned off after the game for charity. But it was before that game that the team received a pep talk from the celebrity that they were honoring that night.

It was Ronald McDonald, who took a few moments to deliver the "Miracle" speech to the Americans:

We see you, Brian McMillin (No. 9), trying not to laugh.

There didn't appear to be any signs of coulrophobia among the players, and the speech served its inspiration purpose. The Americans shut out the Wichita Thunder that night 4-0.
