Last week Sports Illustrated published an article concerning Detroit being known as “Hockeytown U.S.A.” and how deserving Detroit is of this title. Sports Illustrated concludes that “in Detroit in 2007 the Hockeytown moniker seems as appropriate as, well, dipping a beef taco in a glass of milk.” And guess what city they named as the city that should be known as Hockeytown U.S.A…none other than Saint Paul, Minnesota.
For those of us living in the Twin Cities this should come as no surprise considering that the Minnesota Wild, in my opinion, is the best run professional sports organization in the country and between all of the Division I hockey and High School hockey statewide we basically live and breath hockey here. However, it is nice to get a little national recognition every now and then.
Luckily the Wikipedia entry for Hockeytown has already been updated.
