T.J. Oshie just one in Olympic pipeline from hockey-mad Warroad, Minn.

Monday, February 17, 2014

T.J. Oshie lived his high school years about a half-mile from an outdoor rink in tiny Warroad, Minn., pop. 1,781. Gigi Marvin lived four blocks from the same rink. Oshie, as everyone now knows, is starring for the Americans in these Winter Olympics. Marvin, as hockey fans know, is a standout forward for the women's team here. Two U.S. hockey Olympians, one town, one "Frosty Festival" in which they were elected king and queen, and one legendary scuffle between them. (Yahoo! Sports)
