The Team Picture

Creation No. 0027

Every once in a while you get a gigantic piece of dessert dropped in front of you (insert your favorite, mine is German chocolate cake). You politely say, "no, I'm full." But you sneak a little bite. Then you sneak another. Fifteen minutes later, it's gone.

A couple weeks ago, my old friend Tom Chorske dropped this picture of his '86-'87 Gopher team on Twitter. Just like the cake, I took a nibble. Then I took another. And another. 

Before I knew it, I was cutting a video about it. This video is an ode to that team and all of its players. I hope they enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed watching them 30 years ago.
