The Grammy Awards were on Sunday night, but there is already a favourite to win in one of the music video categories. That's referring to something else already out there, not Dubuque Fighting Saints lip-syncing to Selena Gomez's Love You Like A Love Song, although it's still endearing.
To show their fans some love ahead of Valentine Day's, and to show once again that junior hockey players often seem to be missing the shame gene that makes the rest of us seem shy and thus dull, several of the Fighting Saints got their groove on.
Hey, if any of the Fighting Saints' United States Hockey League opponents chirp them about the video, the ready-made rebuttal is pretty obvious: "At least I don't listen to Justin Bieber!"
It is no wonder why Dubuque might be feeling a little loose and uninhibited these days, since they are first overall in the USHL by nine points. It goes to show how much all-for-one, one-for-all fun can permeate a winning locker room; even the Fighting Saints' star scorer, Mike Szmatula (third in USHL scoring), got in on it.
Lest there be a case of mistaken identity, though, that's equipment manager Douglas Jorgensen in Keegan Ford's No. 7 jersey getting up close and personal with the camera.
