IF - Might




Whenever someone mentions the word “might” in Brautsville it is hard not to think of the greatest player to ever wear the brown, orange, black and yellowish white, Mighty Mean Macallroni.

Macallroni was the captain of the Brautsville Ice Brauts from 1985-91. In that span he was twice named MVP, and in 1990 led the Brauts to their first ever championship over their infamous Quad-City rivals the Kitchener Maple Kats.

Yes some would say Mighty Mean Macallroni possessed more might in his little baby toe than most people could hope to have in their entire body. Others would accuse Brautsville of shaving a bear and teaching to skate, but it still doesn't take away from the fact that Macallroni was the first player to almost successfully body-check the Zamboni.

Go Maple Kats!!

You captured that hockey feel! I used to watch a lot of college hockey back in Minnnesota, and it was rowdy and fun! One of the more exciting sports to watch, I think!
