The national anthem before the 2010 Memorial Cup final between Brandon and Windsor. Amanda Stott sang and the entire building was electric.
Who is your all-time favourite Wheat King?
Jordan Tootoo. I was a young kid right in the middle of the hype of "Tootoo Mania". He was so fast, tough, and skilled. It was amazing to watch him every night.
