My apologies, good people of Roseau, for omitting your beloved Rams from my Tuesday list of 25 highlights from the boys’ hockey state tournament.
The event turns 75 in March and Roseau is unquestionably a huge part of the tradition. Seven state titles. The Masked Marvel. The Stordahls. Butsy and the Brotens. Chris Gotziaman. Mike Klema. Aaron Ness. All this great hockey and more from a tiny town (2,633 people according to the 2010 census) on the northern border.
These things happen. My colleague, Howard Sinker, omitted the Barbers from his list of the 10 top sports siblings from Minnesota.
Howard said today, “I pretty much messed up on something that should have been right in front of my eyes.”
I know the feeling.
