In Minnesota, where I grew up, hockey is life. A major component of that life is one’s flow. A player’s hair adds a confidence on the ice that can’t be described. At least that’s what I thought. Turns out, someone CAN describe it and he’s compiled an annual list of the best hockey hair from the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament.
A YouTube Channel known only as Pulltabproductions11 (Pull Tabs are another Minnesota themed post altogether) has done a masterful job combing the tournament archives for the inspiration that drives today’s players while also ranking the finest manes from this year’s tourney. Watch the video and realize there is no irony to these hairdos. There is a firm belief that the strength of a thousand Samsons is gifted to one who possesses the finest of follicles. Indeed, these young men are Gods.
On today’s episode, a men’s league teammate of mine, Pat Duffy, joins me to discuss the growth of his flow and react to, and analyze, this year’s Top 10 list.
