The Miracle on Ice wasn't even on TV when it was being played. It was a hell of an upset but as a big hyped event, it's not in the top 10,000 sports events of the 20th century.
Soccer/football (whatever you call it) is the biggest sport in the world so yes, I agree that nothing else is going to come close.
