The following video chronicles the “best hair” at the 2011 Minnesota Boys’ Hockey State Tournament. Alexandria tied Blaine for best hair! [Thanks to Brother Cam for finding this.]
[From the Echo Press: Cards in action v. Hermantown.]
The following video is from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls site. In this game, Gustavus defeated UWRF, 4 – 1, to move on to the Final Four in D-3 Women’s Hockey. For Alex Super Fans, the result would have been bittersweet either way, as both teams were represented by our 2008 state championship team: Danielle “Roadblock” Justice is the goalie for Gustavus (thus, the UWRF video were of their shots on goal – the Gustie coach said Roadblock “stood on her head” in the 3rd period); and Michelle Anez (No. 18) is a freshman forward for UWRF. The video shows Michelle getting a point blank shot, then congratulating a teammate for finally getting one by Danielle).
The following photos from that game were liberally (what else?) borrowed from Danielle’s mom, “Scoop.”
