I'm in the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame!

That is me on the left!
I have made it into the U.S. hockey hall of fame! Wow, that is a sentence I never thought I would get to say. The above picture is a painting by Terrence Fogarty, a very popular sports artist. Back in 2001/2002, three girls from my hockey team and myself posed for some pictures with Terrence Fogarty. He then took those pictures and drew that painting. It was also the cover of the 2001-2002 Minnesota State Girls High School Hockey tournament.

Anyways, I received a message the other day from one of the girls in the painting saying that it is now displayed in the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in Eveleth, Minnesota. So, by default, I have now made it in to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame! (Side note: when I told my parents this, they informed me I had already seen the picture in the hall of fame, I had just forgotten. How do you forget you are in the hall of fame?!)

Another painting of me!
While the above painting is not in the Hall of Fame, it is another painting Terrence Fogarty did. While I was tying my skates back in 2001/2002, he had been warming up his camera and shot this picture. Six years later, I found out that he had made this painting and it was going to be the cover of the Minnesota State Girls High School Hockey program for the 2007-2008 season. I love both of these paintings, and my family has each of them hanging in our house.

So, that is my story of how I made it in to the U.S. hockey hall of fame!
