HOCKEYTOWN, USA

Recommended Posts

SI recently announced that St.Paul is the new Hockeytown, USA. Sounds better here than in Detroit, MI.

Yeah, I seen that. They said in Detroit ticket sales were down and the were not selling out the Joe anymore. Hockeytown, USA is not Detroit, MI it is St. Paul, MN!!!!!

they did a good job in a short article describing how important hockey is here. It goes beyond the pro game unlike Philly and Det. Ive met some folks from Buffalo and they can be almost considered Canadian in the way they feel about hocley.

Actually the true hockeytown is Warroad smile.gif Great high school hockey, the Warroad Lakers, the Christian Brothers and Henry Bouche.

Any place with a failed/failing Ford plant is off the hockeytown list.

A failing Ford plant is just a matter of time, and there will be more with the recalls they are issuing.

I thought Eveleth was Hockeytown.

For percentage of population, these northern cities probably have more players in hockey than St. Paul.

What in the world would a failing Ford plant in ST. Paul or Detroit have to do with the topic of this thread?????

MN is the State of Hockey! We have a long rich tradition to be proud of that no other town or state can compare. So lets be proud of all the players from Warroad to Wabasha and Morehead to Mora. Heck we are the home to the Hanson Brothers. And then there are so many good teams in college and high school, even old timer leagues. Remember the Miracle on Ice was not the sole work of Jim Craig and Mike Eruzione, I believe there were some guys and maybe a coach from MN. Come to think of it Boston did not even get mentioned in that article. So it stands to reason that Hockeytown USA is the capital of the State of Hockey.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
