New favorite…

A few months ago I celebrated as my beloved alma mater, the University of Minnesota Duluth won the NCAA mens hockey championship.

It ranks up there with the Twins in ’87 and ’91 as my favorite sports fan moments.

One of the dudes from the team has already made his way to the bigs. The same dude pictured up above actually.
Faulk was a key piece of last years team and hopefully will find success in the league. He is on a team with some nice young tallent so hopefully he can help get them to the playoffs (probably not this year).

The ‘dogs have had a fare share of pros, but other than Brett Hull none have been all that successful. hopefully Faulk can turn that around.

I picked up his card for just a buck or two and it is one of my favorites in the small but humble hockey collection.



One response to “New favorite…

  1. Saw Faulk and the Dogs play down here in Mankato last year. Those guys were amazing!

    Not sure if you know, but the pride and joy of MSU is David Backes…captain of the Blues.
