10-K, 10-B

Ten random things: May 10

Ten North American Hockey League franchises:

  1. Marquette Rangers, Marquette, Michigan
  2. Alaska Avalanche, Wasilla, Alaska
  3. Owatonna Express, Owatonna, Minnesota
  4. Texas Tornado, Frisco, Texas
  5. Alexandria Blizzard, Alexandria, Minnesota
  6. Traverse City North Stars, Traverse City, Michigan
  7. Kenai River Brown Bears, Soldotna, Alaska
  8. Janesville Jets, Janesville, Wisconsin
  9. Wichita Falls Wildcats, Wichita Falls, Texas
  10. North Iowa Outlaws, Mason City, Iowa

Frisco, Texas, is the setting of the book I started earlier this evening: Tinsel: A Search for America's Christmas Present by Hank Stuever. He does not make it sound like a very attractive place to live, though I'm sure if I were there I'd like it fine. I'm not that hard to please, when it comes right down to it.
