Centuries of Japan-China Tension Culminates in this Hockey Brawl (Video)
Minnesota High School Hockey Tournament, A.K.A. The Tourney, Features Some Spectacular Mullets (Pics + Videos)
Hockey is a big deal in Minnesota. And I’m not just talking about NHL hockey or college hockey. People are also crazy about high school hockey. In fact, the state high school hockey tournament—known throughout the Land of Lakes simply as “The Tourney“—is the most hyped sporting event of the year. The people who don’t pack the Xcel Energy Center in downtown Minneapolis to watch the games live stay home and watch the games on TV—because yeah, every game is televised.
Of course, people don’t necessarily watch the games for the hockey. Every year, the players who take part in The Tourney rock some incredible hockey hairdos, which they proudly show off during the player introductions prior to each game.
Seriously. The hairdos are a huge deal. People talk about them on Twitter, and when the tournament is over some random guy makes a compilation video of the best ‘dos, called “The All Hockey Hair Team.”
Here’s the 2014 compilation, which is absolutely amazing:
Meanwhile, here are a few of the hairdos you might be seeing on the 2015 edition:
