The home of hockey in America is just five miles from nose work camp! Bailie and Madison made a quick stop on their way to camp after their hike at Jay Cooke State Park. Bailie and I visited the same spot back in 2015, but Madison needed to see it for herself, and this was the time for that to happen.
Here it is, the world’s largest free standing hockey stick! It is 110 feet long, and the puck it is about to hit weighs 700 pounds! My sisters look like ants in comparison!
Before getting back into the car, they also posed with the John Mariucci, a famous NHL player from the town of Eveleth. He played hockey at the University of Minnesota, and eventually was also a coach there. We are not huge hockey fans at our house, but it is still worthwhile to have a look at these fun items at the home of hockey in America.
