Some things, you just know
I'll probably remember March 2, 1991, for the rest of my life. It was a day Cloquet hockey fans will never forget, but it was the day I first met the program.
It was in the aftermath of a gut-wrenching 3-2 section final defeat to Duluth East. I was then a 26-year-old television reporter, and as I waited outside the locker room to meet and speak with coach Tom McFarlane, some of the talk among the other reporters gathered there was about a freshman forward.
