It is Wednesday, January 6th 2010, and it is a cold day in Downtown Minneapolis. The cars and trucks parked on the street are covered with snow, and the roads are icy; the feeling of “old man winter” is definitely present. At Earl Bowman Hall on the campus of Minneapolis Community and Technical College, there is a different feeling among students, faculty, staff and fans alike. They are hot, energetic, and filled with excitement. The hometown teams, the Mavericks, are getting ready to play longtime rivals, Spartans, from Fergus Falls Minnesota.
