    Interesting take from Cassie Campbell on the potential and current situation in women's hockey. She starts taking about it a the 52 minute mark of the podcast:

    Terrific championship game this afternoon between the Whitecaps and the Beauts that is tied at the end of Regulation 1-1. That means bonus hockey!

    Congratulations to the Whitecaps! Um, are there really a lot of tall waves in MN?! I'm a little perplexed by the team name. Anyone able to shed some light on the subject please?

    Larger lakes (plenty of them) where strong winds will create...White caps.

    You're messing with me, right?! Can the white caps on a lake in the midwest be so significant that you name a sports team after them?! Aren't the lakes out there frozen most months of the year?

    There are quite a few lakes where you need to pay attention to the wind if you're out in a small boat. Or in the case of Superior, even an ocean-going vessel.

    That's only so hockey can be played on them.

    By gosh I can tell you've never been on either Winnibigoshish or Leech on a windy day.

    Oh come on! Now you're just making up words!! The next thing you're going to tell me is the State of Hockey has its own Navy for all these lakes with their notoriously humungous waves!

    A lot of the lakes have Native American names.

    Years ago I was sitting on the evening Maui beach with some native Hawaiians enjoying the beautiful view. When they said "I bet you have nothing like this in Minnesota" my response was "no, but some pretty nice lakes".

    Of course they scoffed. Understandable, but little did they know
