Girls Just Wanna Have Fun . . .

(and other stuff)

The following is a compendium from the Trumm files of the girls’ basketball games against Little Falls (Cards in home black) on January 21 and at Detroit Lakes (Cards in visitor white) on January 22. We have previously chronicled the results of both games. This will mostly be a photo essay (with some captions) of those games, as well as stuff from the copious Obert archives.

Fandom access:

[The suspects somehow managed to elude security and obtained access without passing through the full body scanner.  Nelson, fully aware of his culpability, is rumored to be exiting the state anon.]

Family:

[This is offered as an unnecessary break from the Trumm files, which will follow-on.]  Well, it is a family-oriented blog dedicated to sports and the arts.  Having been accomplished at neither, I will introduce family here.  Little Brother Cam, already a diplomaed alumnus of the University of South Carolina, has decided to re-enter college at the ripe young age of 56.  Specifically, Century College in the Cities.  Good for him, we say.  Long past his athletic prime, we feature him here at a lithe 6’3″ going in for a dunk (yes, he could) at Donaldson Run Park in Arlington, Virginia (in keeping with blog traditions, he was a Cardinal until the 5th-grade).  Now, in his own words, he follows his son, Michael John, into the thespian arts (Michael shown here (trenchcoat on the left) as Nick Tickle, an Irondale High School production).

“Yippee!  I got notified this morning by the director that I made it past the first audition and have been asked to come back Saturday for another round of reading. Now, I’m getting a little nervous! The Century College drama department is doing the stage production of Chekhov’s The Seagull. I hope I can secure the role of Dorn, the retired Doctor. I guess my biggest worry is, what if I get chosen? Oh well, I hope it works. I’ll be proud to follow in my son’s footsteps in the world of the stage! Wish me luck!!!!  Thanks.”

The Journey Begins Thanks for joining me! This is the follow-up to the original, “alexandriacardinals.wordpress.com,” which overwhelmed the system’s ability to handle it any more. Thus, this is “Part 2.” As the original was initially described: 10-26-07-4 “It all began in a 5,000 watt radio station in Fresno, California” . . . wait a minute, that was Ted Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show! Let’s see . . . oh yeah, it all began in 2003 when retirees, i.e., old people, in Alexandria, Minnesota, who had no desire to become snow birds, went looking for mid-winter entertainment here in the frozen tundra of West Central Minnesota. We discovered girls’ high school hockey, fell in love immediately, and it remains our favorite spectator sport to this day. Initially, and for several years, reports on these games were e-mailed to those who were actually snowbirds but wanted to keep abreast of things “back home.” It was ultimately decided a blog would be more efficient, and it evolved into a personal diary of many things that attracts tens of readers on occasion. It remains a source of personal mental therapy and has yet to elicit any lawsuits. ~ The Editor, May 9, 2014 p.s. The photo border around the blog is the Cardinal girls’ hockey team after just beating Breck for the state championship in 2008. It’s of the all-tournament team. The visible Breck player on the left is Milica McMillen, then an 8th-grader – she is now an All-American for the Gophers. The Roseau player in the stocking cap I believe is Mary Loken, who went on to play for UND; and the Cardinal player on the right, No. 3, is Abby Williams, the player we blame most for making us girls’ hockey fans who went on to play for Bemidji State. *********************************************************************************** Photos contained herein are available for personal use. All you have to do is double click on any of the photos and they will become full screen size. You can then save them into your personal “My Pictures” file. They make lovely parting or hostess gifts, or holiday gifts for such as Uncle Ernie who wants to see how his grand niece is doing on the hockey team. If any are sold for personal profit, however, to, for example, the Audubon Society, National Geographic, Sven’s Home Workshop Monthly, Curling By The Numbers, or the World Wrestling Federation, I only request that you make a donation to the charitable organization of your choice. You have two hours and fifteen minutes. Pencils ready? Begin! **********************************************************************************
