Hey, Rosie, here's an article about hockey in Minnesota

    Maybe you saw this in today's New York Times but I thought it deserved its own thread.

    Terrific piece. Those people are just really Canadians in disguise.


    Warroad has the edge in former Olympians, thanks mostly to a single family, the Christians: Ginny played on the 1956 team, his brothers Bill and Roger won gold medals with the 1960 team and also played in ’64, and Bill’s son Dave played on the gold-medal-winning 1980 team. Roseau boasts more National Hockey League players, including four from a single block: Bryan Erickson, who played for four clubs in the ’80s and early ’90s, and the three Brotens: Neal, Aaron and Paul.

    Someone did a story in 2005 about Warroad and Roseau. It was part of a series on hockey in Minnesota. Don't remember if it was the Minneapolis or St. Paul paper.

    How did Roseau do this year?

    Roseau defeated Grand Rapids in the Class AA tourney for the state title. They completely outplayed Rapids.

    And JR, thanks for posting that story link. There's nothing like Northern Minnesota hockey.

    That probably belongs on the "cheering on press row" thread. Talk about a homer.
