March 27, 2011 – Frozen Four

This year has brought back memories from the old undergraduate days in Duluth Minnesota, where hockey reigned supreme.  I still remember the crisp, clear walks back from the arena after the game.  I was thankful that there were many blocks of skywalk to break the chill of the two mile walk.

This year’s team has once again made the NCAA Frozen Four.

This year, the tourney is hosted in St. Paul and would be a perfect time to go…if tix weren’t $100 game and you had to buy three games at that price, so a couple of tix sets you back $600.  That’s about 240 dozen eggs!

I found this photo in the archives of the Duluth News-Tribune from the early 80’s showing coach Mike Sertich celebrating after beating Wisconsin to win the conference championship.  The years I had season tickets the Bulldogs went to three NCAA tournaments.  If they can get by Notre Dame in the first game, they’ll play their nemesis North Dakota.
