Wadena-Deer Creek Head Boys' Hockey Coach Chris Holman can tell you exactly what it feels like to be checked from behind. "You don't even know where you are for a second," Holman said. You might be carried off the ice on a back board like WDC junior Christian Berg was in a Jan. 3 game at Fergus Falls. You might also end up in a spinal cord trauma ward like Jack Jablonski. The Benilde-St. Margaret junior varsity skater had his spinal column dislocated when he was checked from behind by a Wayzata player in a Dec. 30 game.

Whitney R. Pajari, 17, was traveling north when her car crossed the centerline at 10:51 a.m. and struck the semi driven by Dale D. Bain, 48, of Wadena.
Now that the 2012 NFL regular season is over and the Minnesota Vikings have nowhere to play, the time seems right to take a look back at the blunders they made and pass some judgments. Everyone knows that hindsight is 20-20. Right off the bat it is pretty obvious that just about everything that could go wrong did go wrong. If you would have told someone the Vikes would be 3-13 in 2011 after the 2009 season they would have laughed at you. Who could guess that when Brett Favre threw that stupid pass back across the field in the NFC championship game that the Vikes had walked under a ladder.

The Thunderhawks took advantage of WDC miscues to keep themselves in the game in the first half.
