Governor Dalrymple Predicts Score ... Again
About a year ago, North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple was interviewed live by Fox Sports North Host Marney Gellner pre-game to a University of North Dakota vs. U of Minnesota men's hockey game. At the end of that interview, Marney asked the Governor if he wanted to predict the score of the game. To which he offered: North Dakota, 4, Minnesota, 1. He was right! Two-plus hours later that's what the score ended up. Fast forward one year to last Friday night. Marney Gellner and Governor Dalrymple were back at the FSN pre-game desk in Grand Forks' Ralph Engelstad Arena. Marney recalled the Governor's accurate prediction and asked him for another. This time he did a bit of a Carnac impression and guessed: North Dakota, 2, Minnesota, 1. Once again - the Gov was right on. No word yet on if the Governor's office is receiving requests for lottery numbers and other predictions but I do think I see a standing pre-game question from FSN in the future.
