Mankato Free Press (November 30, 2021) — Last winter and spring, when the Minnesota State University men’s hockey team made its historic run through the NCAA playoffs, forward Brendan Furry was in the process of growing an epic mullet. Little did he know his impressive locks would be called upon months later for a good cause.
Don’t know what a mullet is? Google it. Or simply think back to the ‘80s when dudes coiffed their hair short on top (business in the front) and let it grow long past their shoulders (party in the back).
The mullet-growing event kicked off Tuesday at Pub 500 in Mankato. The mullet growers will compete to see who can grow the longest mullet, with the winner announced Jan. 23 at the culmination of Hockey Day Minnesota, the annual outdoor hockey event that takes place in Mankato this year.
