The Gophers made a deep run into the NCAA Tournament this Spring, coming just one win short of adding a 6th National Championship. Even with the disappointing loss to Union in the final game, it was still a fun run.
Since we are in the depths of the off-season, I took some time this afternoon and updated my website. The first addition was a section for my Gopher Basketball jerseys. To me, the highlights are a Sam Jacobson jersey and a Miles Tarver warmup.
The second additions are a pair of jerseys. The first is a Jeff Frazee Team USA jersey. This was worn in the 2006 World Junior Championships which are usually held when the college teams are off for Christmas break. This is a Nike Swift jersey with screened on lettering. The back has a mesh material that I have been told wasn't on the regular jerseys. I can only speculate that it is a cooler material for goalies to wear. For a closer look, visit my Miscellaneous Gear page.
The other hockey jersey that I added today is a 2008-09 Taylor Matson gold "Minnesota" script alternate jersey. When I first obtained it, there was a question over whether it was worn or just issued, as Matson was injured partway through his Freshman season. After some digging, I found a picture of him wearing this jersey in the 2009-2010 Gopher Media Guide. For a better look of this one, visit the 2006 to Current page.
Thanks for looking. I'd be happy to hear from anyone reading this who has a jersey collection of their own, or if you are just a big Gopher Hockey fan like I am.
