It’s been over 20 years since the Minnesota North Stars relocated to Dallas, which means that Pete Morrow’s daughter has only known a world with the Wild as Minnesota’s hockey team.
Molly is 10 years old, but apparently wise beyond her years. Pete sent over this answer to a geography test she had in school recently about the American southwest. When asked to name where she’d like to visit there, she answered “Dallas.”
“I would like to visit Dallas because I would want to ask the Dallas Stars coach, ‘Why did you take the North Stars away from Minnesota?’”
WELL, LINDY RUFF, YOU MONSTER?! WHY DID YOU DO THIS 22 YEARS AGO WHEN YOU WERE RETIRING AS A MEMBER OF THE SAN DIEGO GULLS?! HUH?!
She went on to say that she’s like to see the differences between Dallas and Minnesota, presumably to understand why the North Stars left. Which essentially means she wants to look at Norm Green’s bank statements from 20 years ago, I guess.
Oh, the young hockey fan. Such wonder. Such curiosity. Such early acceptance that this sport will find new and exciting ways to break your heart and that life will become a never-ending quest to determine why…
