UPDATE: One of the directors sent us this higher-quality video.
I had heard that the Alaska-Fairbanks hockey program was planning to re-do their excellent entrance video, featuring a polar bear that has the ability to fly through space and I thought, “That would be just like painting bangs on the Mona Lisa.” But they did re-do the video, and somehow it’s even more awesome. Just enjoy it. It’ll be the only video of a polar bear in a fighter jet nuking the planet, only to travel back in time to crash through the roof of an ice rink that you see all day. Probably. –as seen on MGoBlog.
