With frozen ponds and frigid temperatures, aside from curling one competitive sport matches the climate perfectly up here in Alaska; and that's Hockey. Last night Casey, a friend Ben and I went to support the Nanooks, the hockey team of University of Alaska Fairbanks, in their second game against Northern Michigan University's Wildcats. With only six minutes left in the third period the Nanooks #23, who's team is down by three, attempts to even the board with a desperate shot for a goal. No such luck. At the final blow of the horn Alaska lost to Northern Michigan 1-4.
