First off, former Minnesota-Duluth forward Mason Raymond was given a rather random mention on tonight's episode of How I Met Your Mother.
Second, I read this rumor on the Minnesota HS hockey forum, and thought there was no way it could be true. But alas, it is. Milo Ventimiglia, star of Heroes, and that dumbass from Gilmore Girls, was at Bloomington Jefferson High School last week, because his film company had optioned the movie rights to John Rosengren's book Blades of Glory, which chronicled the Jaguars through the 2000-2001 season.
It was a pretty interesting book, though I'm not sure how well it would adapt to the screen, since a lot of what made it interesting was backstory. Among the standouts on that Jefferson team was former Wisconsin Badger, and current Edmonton Oiler Tom Gilbert.
