SPORTS FEEVER by Chris Fee of KROX Radio –


KROX officially wrapped up the Winter Sports season on Saturday with the Class A Boys Basketball Championship game. The Fertile-Beltrami Falcons came up short in the championship game against Cherry, but you could clearly tell the Falcons didn’t have the juice after the triple overtime semi-final victory over West Central Area.

The semi-final game was the best state tournament game I have broadcast since the Red Lake vs Wabasso game in 1997 at the St. Paul Civic Center (where the Excel Energy Center is now located). They played four 8-minute quarters back then, and Wabasso led the game 81-62 at the end of the three quarters. Red Lake scored 43 points in eight minutes (not even a half of a half, which would be nine minutes these days). The game was tied at 105 at the end of regulation, and Wabasso held on to win the game 117-113.

It was an amazing pace from start to finish, but the fourth quarter was something we will never see again. Imagine a team putting up 43 points in the final eight minutes of a game.

Imagine a triple overtime thriller for the rights to play in the state championship game. The Fertile-Beltrami vs West Central Area game was close from start to finish. It looked like Fertile-Beltrami was in trouble when they led late in regulation when Caiden Swenby fouled out with less than three minutes to play in regulation. The Falcons led by three points, and a last-second prayer heave by a West Central player banked off the backboard and went in to tie the game and force overtime. There wasn’t a lot of action in the first or second overtime, but it was clear that Fertile-Beltrami was the team in better condition as they dominated the third overtime. The Falcons started the third overtime with a three-pointer and a three-point play and never looked back to win the game in triple overtime.

It was great to see the players who played in the game win the game. Every player had a huge part in the game, and to see Coach Neil Steffes get back to another state championship game was awesome, too. To see the huge Fertile-Beltrami crowd celebrating the amazing accomplishment of the boys was so much fun. It was a special time, and I was happy to have a front-row seat to all of it. It is a game I will never forget and one that is in my top two of all time.

I have had a lot of emails, texts, messages, social media posts, and calls, and I have already received some cards from people who listened to the game, letting me know how much they appreciated the coverage, especially the triple overtime game. I am happy we were able to bring the game to so many people over the radio, and like I tell people, it is our pleasure to cover Crookston, Fertile-Beltrami, and all the area teams we cover, especially at state. It is by far my favorite part of the job. To see kids representing their home town and leaving everything on the court/ice/grass/etc while trying to reach the ultimate goal of a state championship. To see the community pride, the school pride, and all the alumni and area communities come out to cheer the team on is always my favorite part.

We had over 10,000 people listening online during the three Fertile-Beltrami games at state. We had over 70,000 page views on our website in those three days. We have no idea how many people listened on the radio, but we know it was A LOT.

Congratulations to Fertile-Beltrami Boys Basketball. The ride was one I will never forget.

If you enjoy our coverage of high school, college, and professional sports, or news, music, or anything we carry on KROX Radio, our website, or our video stream, make sure you support the businesses that you hear on the radio, see on the website, or watch on the video streams. The only way we can do what we do is because of the businesses that advertise with us. So make sure to patronize those businesses because, without them, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. It literally takes a village!

Unfortunately, Crookston Pirate Girls Hockey is looking for a new coaching staff. I received a phone call last week while down at State Basketball from Activities Director Nate Lubarski, letting me know the tough news. I haven’t had a chance to talk with Emily yet, but I wanted to thank the entire coaching staff for always being great to us at KROX.

Emily Meyer, Stacy (Flikka) Olson, Amanda Lien, and Andy Fee gave a lot of time to the girl’s hockey program and had them one goal away from advancing to a state tournament, and the loss was to the eventual state champion again. What more can you ask for? Coach Meyer was the Section 8A Coach of the Year, as voted by her peers.

Emily was always willing to give us any info or help that we needed to make sure our broadcasts were available. She would promote them to the fans, and I can say with 100 percent certainty that she CARED about every one of the girls on the team. She wanted what was best for them and would do whatever it took to make sure they were in the best position to get a win. Sometimes, that means changing lines, positions, etc. The coach’s job is to put the best team out there, not benefit one player, and Emily did that to the fullest of her ability.
She was a great interview and was always willing, even after a tough loss in the Section 8A championship this year. She is an amazing young lady and knows hockey better than most. She was always AWESOME to KROX, and I cannot thank her enough for that!

She will be very hard to replace. With that said, I am excited for Emily as she will finish her degree, and if she wants to, I see her as a college coach. She has the knowledge, the smarts, and the connections, and I think she would be a great coach at the next level. I firmly believe that EVERYTHING happens for a reason, and the grass will be greener for Emily on the other side. She will be successful in whatever she decides to do. She has great work ethic, is determined, smart, and is a good person. She is awesome!!!!

Stacy (Flikka) Olson was pregnant and still helped out on the bench as much as possible. So many people in today’s society would say nope, I am not helping. Stacy said I will do everything I can to help the girls. That is beyond admirable, and it shows you the dedication she has to put back into the program she played for. The girls were so lucky to have her as a coach. She is a great young lady and did whatever it took to give the girls the best chance to win.

Amanda Lien is another former Pirate Girls Hockey player who gave back to the program as an assistant coach. To have three young ladies on the staff to give back to the program is so cool. Amanda came on and was sometimes the sounding board for the girls, which is part of being the assistant. She did a great job helping out, and seeing her be part of the program was pretty cool.

Andy Fee is my brother, of course. I have known him since he was born and still can beat him up to this day. We love him, even if something went drastically wrong with his decisions growing up, like becoming a UND Hockey fan instead of a Gopher Fan like the rest of us. In all seriousness, he said he respects the coaches decisions and enjoyed coaching with them this past season as a volunteer coach.

So who is going to coach next year?  You need to find three coaches for Girls Hockey, which is one of the most challenging sports to find a coach for many reasons.

I find it interesting that fans and parents (some from Crookston) are signing a petition because high school sports aren’t fair, especially with the private schools. The KICKER with Crookston fans and parents……Crookston Boys and Girls Hockey is in a coop with a private school (Sacred Heart)!!!!! So Crookston shouldn’t be complaining that private schools should be treated differently when we coop with a great school like Sacred Heart. You can’t make up for the ineptitude of some parents and fans.

Talking with a guy from the youth Hockey Hub, he said Minnesota High School Hockey is basically Tier 1 hockey now. Kids are moving to other programs because moms and dads are willing to do whatever they can to make sure their kid is a “winner,” instead of showing them what it means to be loyal, how to become a better person by working hard and trying to do the best in the situation you are given.

I look at the Hennen kid from Kittson County Central. He played for the Bearcats all the way through. He played some fall hockey but always returned to play for his high school. Oh….by the way, he is playing at D1 Augustana. No matter what any of these money-hungry paycheck hockey coaches tell you, if you are GREAT, it doesn’t matter where you play. You will be recruited.

It isn’t just hockey, it is basketball and other sports, too. The Metro area is the wild west of transferring. It isn’t just private schools, it is all schools, including public schools. The Star Tribune (Twin Cities newspaper) had a list of star high school athletes who transferred to a new school this year before the fall sports season started. Some private schools are LOSING kids to public schools or other private schools too.

I don’t believe this is 100 percent an MSHSL problem. Probably a 50/50 problem. Open enrollment is an issue. It is a parenting and society problem. These parents pay asinine amounts of money to try to buy their kid a scholarship, literally. There is no longer loyalty for kids, parents, and even some coaches who bounce around from school to school, looking for the best chance to win instead of building something.

What can you do? I don’t think you can do anything other than close open enrollment. But if a family moves to a district and has a house there, the MSHSL can’t do anything about it. It is what makes following teams like Fertile-Beltrami even more fun. They are kids who have been playing together since they were little, and fun to see them do so well. They have a coach who has been there for 31 years and is proud of the kids, program, and community.

Of the Minnesota State Boys Basketball championship teams, all four had transfers on their team.

From the Star Tribune –
Senior Kayden Wells, who had 19 points and 10 rebounds for Minnetonka in the Class 4A final, played for Benilde-St. Margaret’s last season. So did sophomore Christian Wiggins, who scored 18 points for Wayzata in the 4A final.

Senior Daniel Freitag, who scored 33 points for Breck in its victory in the Class 2A championship game, played for Bloomington Jefferson last season. He had announced he would transfer to a school in California before deciding to play for Breck.

The senior star who led Totino-Grace to the Class 3A title, Isaiah Johnson-Arigu, played for Osseo as a sophomore.

At Cherry, junior Noah Sundquist, who had 15 points and nine rebounds in the Class 1A championship game, was prominent for Chisholm as a ninth-grader.

Benilde-St. Margaret’s (a private school) had two players transfer from their team to play for public schools.

So what can you do? I have no idea.

Only nine times in the last 25 years has an NCAA men’s hockey team changed coaches after missing the tournament, then made the field in the new coach’s first season. Mike Hastings (Crookston High School graduate) is on that list twice, at Minnesota State in 2012-13 and now at Wisconsin.

A proud and confident genius makes a bet with an idiot. 

The genius says, “Hey idiot, every question I ask you that you don’t know the answer, you have to give me $5. And if you ask me a question and I can’t answer yours I will give you $5,000.” 

The idiot says, “Okay.” 

The genius then asks, “How many continents are there in the world?” The idiot doesn’t know and hands over the $5. 

The idiot says, “Now me ask: what animal stands with two legs but sleeps with three?” 

The genius tries and searches very hard for the answer but gives up and hands over the $5,000. 

The genius says, “Dang it, I lost. By the way, what was the answer to your question?” 

The idiot hands over $5.

One Monday morning a mailman is walking the neighborhood on his usual route. As he approaches one of the homes he noticed that both cars were in the driveway. His wonder was cut short by Bob, the homeowner, coming out with a load of empty beer and liquor bottles. “Wow Bob, looks like you guys had one hell of a party last night.” the mailman comments.
Bob in obvious pain replies, “Actually we had it Saturday night. This is the first I have felt like moving since 4:00 am Sunday morning. We had about fifteen couples from around the neighborhood over for Christmas Cheer and it got a bit wild. Hell, we got so drunk around midnight that we started playing WHO AM I.”
The mailman thinks a moment and says, “How do you play that?”
Well all the guys go in the bedroom and we come out one at a time with a sheet covering us and only our “privates” showing through a hole in the sheet. Then the women try to guess who it is.”
The mailman laughs and says, “Damn, I’m sorry I missed that.”
Probably a good thing you did,” Bob responds. “Your name came up four or five times.”

“That wife of mine is a liar,” said the angry husband to a sympathetic pal seated next to him in the bar.

“How do you know?” the friend asked.

“She didn’t come home last night and when I asked her where she’d been, she said she had spent the night with her friend Julie.”


“So she’s a liar. I spent the night with her friend Julie.”
