Kris Porther- Hockey Captain
What's poppin' ya'll midwesterners. My named is Kris Porther, I grew up Toronto, Canada so as a young whippersnapper I was destined to play puck. In 2003 I plan to enter the NHL draft and see where hockey will take me as a career. As of now I am the captain of the North Dakota Fighting Sioux hockey squad, whoop whoop! I am real excited about our prospects this year as a team but I am disappointed in all of this turmoil surrounding our mascot. Every time I pull those threads over my head and wear the mascot of the Fighting Sioux on my chest I feel very proud and strong. I believe that this mascot is not disrespectful to the tribe (unless we lose, just kidding), and the tribe should be excited to see it every time they flip on their tuber.
