Hockey Day in Minnesota
How are you participating in Hockey Day in Minnesota?
Are you playing in the Pond Hockey Championships? Going to the Wild game? Or the Gopher game?
Are you skating outdoors? Watching the televised high school games? (Looks nasty up there! Feeling sorry for the Benhilde-St. Margarets/Grand Rapids kids…) Are you skating with your kids? Donating gear?
I’m watching the coverage on Fox Sports North. It was fun to see how outdoor games are different from playing inside, see the snowmobiles zipping around in the background, and of course all the funny Minnesota warm hats. Later we’ll watch the Gophers play their last game against North Dakota while in the WCHA. And of course, the much-anticipated Wild debut (who are you most excited to watch? me: Granlund!).
The graphic is from the Wild and the photo is JMS Captain Mike St. Clair with his toddlers, who noted, “Gotta find SOME way to get out and play!!”
Chime in with how you are spending/spent Hockey Day in Minnesota!
