But the Bears have that lovable loser Cubs-like mystique, which the Cubs no longer have because they've now one a World Series. That takes generations to cultivate. Think about how that streak is as old as the tournament itself, transcending the single class, two tier, and two class eras. That stre...

When is the last time (if ever) a team been a 4-seed in their own section and the State champion? They were better than a 4-seed obviously. Still though.

Okay two things after goals I've noticed all tournament: 1) score and you do the quiver/bow and arrow thing. If you're special you get a down on one knee slide while doing it. 2) gloves off when you skate past your teammates on the bench. Is that new? Is this the first year kids have been doing that...

Filthy goal by #2 for Luverne. Goodness that was a thing of beauty.
Followed by the best quote of the day by the announcer: (game going go to overtime) "And the Luverne fans are celebrating like they won the game [chuckles to himself]"

What a game. What a day.
