This year’s hockey-hair team: Flowetry in motion

I had vowed this year that I would not succumb to the allure of the Minnesota State High School Tournament hockey-hair team that John King puts together every year.

Like the Macarena, as soon as the media became obsessed with the thing, it was past time to move on.

The players were preening. Preening! Hockey players don’t preen.

But, like most of my principles, it was a promise I couldn’t keep to myself, not after I saw this year’s video, which King released on Sunday. He calls it “flowetry in motion”

I’m not proud of myself.

Preening past: 2015
