Today is Hockey Day Minnesota where people from Winona to International Falls celebrate putting the puck where mama keeps the peanut butter. There are Pee Wee tournaments, high school contests, the University of Minnesota game against rival North Dakota, the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships, and maybe the biggest celebration, a very belated start to the NHL season. The Minnesota Wild took the ice tonight against the Colorado Avalanche, and I was there for warm-ups. It feels good to be back.
This is day 19 of Photo 365.
Postscript – The Minnesota Wild won 4-2. Tremendous conclusion to a day of hockey!
