"Of the major pro sports, hockey is the oldest after baseball. The Upper Peninsula is the birthplace of American Hockey, and we could feel that while we were there. There's a depth of emotion and attitude towards the game, the rinks, and the youth players that you just don't find at more modern city rinks. Hockey is an institution up there, and they are very proud of that."
