Lou Nanne Commits to U of M

Here’s something from the ‘More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same Department’.

↵

Lou Nanne has committed to the University of Minnesota to play hockey.

↵

When I first read that, I thought that meant that North Stars and US hockey legend Lou Nanne was giving some big endowment to the U of M, but then I thought ‘Ted, you’re an idiot. Gotta be his son. That’s pretty cool, Lou Nanne’s kid is going to skate for the U, just like he did.’

↵

Yeah, try his grandson. Oh, Lou’s son Marty also skated for the Gophers, so I was right, just 25 or 30 years off or so.

↵

Yeah, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go feel sorry for myself for being so damn old.

Lou Nanne had grandkids? Not possible, because just yesterday he was tearing it up for the North Stars, wasn’t he?
