What Sport Is All About

Many great sports stories have been written by great individuals and great teams.   On Saturday another was written by an unlikely group of determined athletes. 
Diminutive Union College defeated mighty Minnesota to win the NCAA Hockey Tournament. 

What is so amazing about Union?   Let's go inside the numbers.

Minnesota: 18 ;  Union: 0
Minnesota: 50,000 ; Union 2,200
NHL Draftees
Minnesota: 14 ; Union 1
Years In D1 Hockey
Minnesota: 66 ; Union: 10

We love to root for the underdog, and by all indications, Union should have been a big one one. It just seems somebody forgot to tell them.  The little guys from Schenectady beat the Gophers 7 - 4 to claim the 2014 NCAA title.
 Well done, Dutchmen!
