SATURDAY PICK | Red Bull Crashed Ice: St. Paul winter carnivores

Print

The Vulcans used to be the bad boys of winter in the Capital City, but on the threat index, their fire engines and shady past are no match for the 250-pound men in hockey pads who will be barreling down a ramp from the Cathedral steps at the first stop of the Red Bull Crashed Ice American tour. (Presumably the male-only nature of the event appealed to the Archdiocese.) Mayor Chris Coleman is said to be a big fan of the competition, a unholy combination of hockey, roller derby, and bobsledding. Watch the blood bounce at today’s 7 p.m. final match.
