The Greg Trumm Files


1-28-12-8We are grateful that the staff photographer has been a major contributor to this blog.  And we love it when he gets all artsy on us, such as the above photo taken at the girl’s basketball game against St. Cloud Tech on February 7.  This missive is entirely based on his photos from that Tech game, and the girls’ and boys’ basketball games against Bemidji on February 9, the night we felt compelled to cover Harper’s Chord at SAWA.  For those who may not know, Greg has his own photo site, listed below, where you can view his total library, complete and unabridged, and otherwise untouched by human hands:


[Amanda C greets a St. Cloud Tech Tiger.  In the background, you can see Cardinal basketball players of the future, as well as those from the past, if there had been a Title IX at the time!  It’s nice to see multi-generational fandom.  🙂 ]










[Coupla older guys sitting behind a coupla younger gals.]


[Kohler’s team in a few more years!  😉 ]


[Emily from the corner.]


[Karly makes a free throw – on her way to a 16-point first half.]


[Dani’s in focus while all around her seem confused?]


[Karly scores again!]


[We did good!]


[Blizzards all around?]


[Time-outs are necessary to re-arrange ponytails.]


[Makes one think of schnitzel and kraut!]


[Emily, up close and personal.  My favorite color is red; my favorite photographer is Greg Trumm, my lucky number is 3, my favorite Blizzard is Oreo Cookie . . .]


[Number 1 rule of coaching – talk to the guards!  🙂 ]


[Kalli sinks a freebie.]


[Does she call her Mom, or Kohler?]


[Kalli again!  🙂 ]


[Kalli on the other end of a free throw situation.]


[When you’re on a roll, you’re on a roll!]


[Jess tickles the twine.]


[Kendall picks up the Tiger point guard.]


[She will be the new Alli Haar for facial expressions!  🙂 ]


[The perfect 1-3-1 diagonal.]


[Clap, clap, clap . . . clap, clap, clap . . . clap, clap, clap, i.e., game over!]


[Amanda C jumps center against the Lumberjacks . . .]


[Her older sister and mom were on hand.]




[Match up!  Match up!]


[Amanda C arcs a 3!]


[Allegedly related to Alexandria’s noted boy tenor.]


[It’s Saturday, how ’bout pizza after the game?]


[I can’t hold this ball over my head much longer!]


[ . . . with extra cheese and pepperoni.]


[Our kids used to play, you know?]


[C’mon, ladies!!!]


[The Cards somehow let this one get away.  Fortunately, they came back to beat conference rival Willmar in their next game.]


[The boys’ game, a venue I have yet to visit this year?]


[6’8″ senior center Logan Doyle is featured in these photos.]


[He will matriculate to South Dakota State.]


[Nice win for the team.]


[We’ll end as we began – with a cymbal of our times.  Thanks, Greg!  :-)]

The Journey Begins Thanks for joining me! This is the follow-up to the original, “,” 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.
