Here are pictures I grabbed from Google Earth of each of the WCHA rinks. To see the larger version just click on the picture. This was mostly an exercise in boredom as I can't really think of any good use for these other than satisfying a bit of curiousity. I grabbed them all from a height of about 2000ft. Note that Google Earth's levels of resolution (detail) for St. Cloud, Houghton and Duluth is lesser than the rest (it's not an indictment per se... obviously all the other cities are just more important) but I put them first here to ensure any feelings of inferiority which Google's disrespect causes is somewhat mitigated. The Houghton picture is pretty much superfluous (Google Earth barely knows it exists) but anyway, it's from 20,000ft.
The National Hockey Center
It's interesting to note that 3 of the 4 rinks in Minnesota are not aligned on a North/South basis along with the World Arena (no wonder they couldn't figure out Black Bears is a million times better name than Tigers) while all the rest (except who knows about the MacInnes in Houghton) are so constucted. Also you can clearly read the "Fighting Sioux" name in the Ralph picture; I guess someone actually believed that Uncle Ralphie would be able to look down from heaven to make sure they never change the name. Yeah ... ok. Parking at the Magness and the Alltell Center rinks must be a pain in the ass.
