big coverage of a huge small town hockey tournament

two weeks ago eagle river hosted the usa hockey pond hockey championships. 250 teams. 1700 people. 24 rinks on one lake! this is a big deal for our little town and was made even bigger by the presence of nbc sports! the following segment aired nationally before & after the blackhawks game on sunday as part of nbc's hockey day in america. since local coverage of events around here is often anything but professional {i'm sorry but it's true!}, this video and its olympic feel are something really special!

seriously...tell me that music didn't give you the chills. nbc sports can make anything feel magical! also they make me want the olympics to be on tv. right. now.

funny they didn't mention that the tournament was sponsored by labatt blue and that each team received a 24 pack of beer for each game played :)
