Holy Polar Bears!


For a long time, I was under the impression that pre-game videos couldn't get much better than what the Kansas University men's basketball team had to offer.

I mean, everything about the KU video is great. The music. The footage. The volume. It's so great, in fact, that I make it a point to get to the arena early on game nights to watch it. So great that, if I'm having a conversation when the video starts, I suspend said conversation until the video is complete. So great that it literally gives me chills sometimes.

After seeing this, however, it's going to be hard for me to get too excited about a pre-game video that doesn't involve a huge polar bear waking up underwater, sinking a cruise ship with a hockey stick made out of lightning, boarding a jet, blowing up Miami University, blowing up Ohio State University, blowing up Michigan State University, blowing up planet Earth, traveling through a purple space-time continuum to another planet, bursting through the roof of a hockey arena and, eventually, blowing it up, too.

The day the Nanooks beat the mighty Miami RedHawks on the ice will be a warm day in Fairbanks. Go 'Hawks!
