A special photo

A number of minor league hockey teams produce different sweaters for different occasions, and Valentine's Day can be one of those occasions. Here is a wonderful photo from a few years ago of the Louisiana Ice Gators, with the sweet pink threads being worn by none other than tough guy Derek Boogaard. Isn't that special?

Side note: I love the "Ice Gators" name. For some reason that part of the world is home to a number pun-inspired hockey teams including the Orlando Solar Bears and Florida Everblades. I've always thought Augusta, Georgia should have a team that they could call the "Augusta Wind."

UPDATE: An alert reader informs me that Augusta DOES have a minor-league hockey team, but they are called the RiverHawks. Boring!
