Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

This just in Emergency Powers continue for 30 more days. It is no longer up to MSHSL or Minn Hockey. =D> Oct and Nov will be interesting for those rushing their kids out for all important practices and games. Not looking forward to it but when the CDC and WHO speak I listen and that is where you ge...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

.00043% of the US population has died from Covid -19. The average age of the deceased is 83. This probably has a huge effect on the upcoming high school hockey season. Sorry if I’m not seeing that.

Can someone remind me who the last crowned Minnesota State Champion in any sport is?

:D 8) :lol:

It seems likely there will be hockey this year. Maybe just more of it will be web cast for us socially distant (by 2000 miles) folks...
I think it was Rapids Spar. 😁

Minneapolis is burning itself to the ground.

U of M is severing some ties with Minneapolis Police Department. ( What could go wrong with that?)

Hockey isn’t even visible right now through the smoke and ash.

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

Grandma and Grandpa need to stay isolated if they feel they are at risk. If they go to the kids games or visit other people they are putting themselves in a vulnerable spot.

It seems Duluth East will be all sophomores and a couple 8th graders with the talent. Rapids won’t be deep and no returning netminder. Elk has numbers and new rink next winter. 😳😳😳😳...

Re: CoVid-19

The scary part for me is that there is a big chunk of our population that thinks we have an endless supply of money and a few months off of work with some free cash won’t create any future problems.

Re: CoVid-19

This is a virus that is MOSTLY attacking the VERY elderly and those with underlying health issues to a lesser extent. 86 was the average age death and 44 (lived in nursing home) is the youngest in Minnesota.

Re: CoVid-19

As of Saturday the youngest Minnesotan died of Covid-19, he was 44 and lived in a long term care facility. That brought the average age of a Minnesotan that died from Covid-19 down to 83 from 86. Of course the average life expectancy of Minnesotans is 78....every death is a loss but from the day we...

Several of you are saying the flu killed 60,000 people in 2018. That is with a vaccine available that a lot of people took. Think about it.

We do not live in a “one size fits all society”. While what is taking place in our large metro areas is very scary it is not the same scenario that is taking place in rural America. There are advantages to both living places and right now the people in the boondocks are able to live a little more co...

I am certainly no medical expert here but I believe Goldy hit it pretty well a few posts ago. If the country stays locked down much longer we will have problems far exceeding the virus.

Re: Turning Points

In my opinion the most important win GR history was in 1972 in the quarterfinals of their first trip to state. They had a matchup with a very good Edina Hornet team who was heavily favored. Somehow Rapids overcame the jitters of their first ever appearance and pulled off a victory. They went on to t...

Good question on the toilet paper Raider. While I’d hate to run out of that there are many things more essential than that. Besides, I texted my Wisconsin friends and told them how lucky they were that they have all that Packer gear in case they run out. 😁

The 1980 final with Grand Rapids and Hill Murray should be up there too. Hill was undefeated going into the final and lost 2-1, despite outshooting Rapids 32-16. A couple things about the 1980 tournament. Nobody could have anticipated that after Rapids won the title it would be 37 years before anot...
