When John and I started Game On, we had no idea we'd be in Houlton, WI filming a bunch of crazy high school players posing with a horse and smashing a wedding cake. Our site is about the great character that lies inside of so many great people in Minnesota.
This story started five years ago when a good friend from Stillwater told me about Stillwater hockey's lack of a state title. Since that day, I have secretly been screaming my lungs out for them to win a title.
Last Monday, I met the 16 seniors on the Stillwater high school team at a nearby stable to have them pose in tuxedo tee shirts and get their take on their quest for a state title.
Senior Austin Murr enjoying the cake
Each senior made their own vow. Some were very serious and some had some fun with it. My favorite was the end-of-the-bench guy who vowed to get a goal this year! The boys had some fun with it, we had a blast watching them destroy the cake and tell their story.
Will they win it all at the X?
Time will tell, but we will be cheering for them (secretly of course).
Special thanks to Marci at Tremblay's Sweet Shop for her help with our mastcot. Check out her store in downtown Stillwater on Hockey Day Minnesota..yum, yum.
