Prophetic Valentine

Two old gladiators


In 1952, tiny Halstad met big, bad Thief River Falls in the Region 8 basketball final. The game was held in Thief River Falls. And Halstad upset Thief River to advance to the state tournament and become the media darlings of the entire state. I am spending this summer completing a book on Halstad's 1952 season.

In the past two weeks, visits to this site have gone up dramatically. Yesterday, the web-counter showed that there were 899 visitors. That is the most ever. I can't figure why the spike in hits, since I haven't been writing any more than usual or putting up any more pictures than usual, but it is fun. And it motivates me to keep posting at least once per day. Thanks for checking in, whoever you are and wherever you are.
