State Tournament

Post by oldram » Tue Dec 04, 2007 2:09 pm

Clear boards in Civic Center.
How high the seats went in the far end of the CC when coming out of the tunnel from the locker rooms.
The announcers voice when calling your name.
How big a TV camera is when it's 3 feet from your face and you don't know whether to smile or look away.
Hitting the pipe in the first game of the tourney and realizing close doesn't count. Terrible feeling.

White Bear Mariner (who said White Bear has never won a quarterfinal game)

Reggie Miracle - Columbia Heights

The lights going out in the 1986 tournament

North vs. South - of course almost everyone cheers for the North (i.e. Warroad vs. Burnsville or something like that)

The clear boards on the original building

Cooperalls

The music videos

(I know - that is more than five)....my 400th post!

one shot shotty wrote:06 rapids over hill
then riedar chokes

07 rapids over century
then riedar chokes

but the 06 game over hill was intense hockey and crowds
Eh? Rapids never beat RC, nor would they have if they actually played...Century beat Hill.

That game was UNFORGETTABLE. The state tournament is just a magical place, every part of it. Even Section 206 helping us on the "PUBLIC SCHOOLS" chant, though they would turn against RC in the Roseau game, Section 206 is awesome.

5 things:

5 - The old St Paul Civic Center
4 - Clear Boards
3 - Seeing the old boys come watch the games (65 plus years old)
2 - Seeing good friends every year and talking hockey.
1 - The original I Tier System when you could watch the Big School vs Small School match-up's and the entire small town would be at the game. Awesome school spirit!! Great Hockey atmosphere!!

It will never be that good again.
