OSCAR JOHNSON

Game 3 | April 28, 1949 | Oscar Johnson, Roy Shipstad
Before the arrival of professional sports, the annual appearance of Shipstad and Johnson's Ice Follies was one of the biggest sports attractions in the Twin Cities. The show featured a chorus line called the "Ice Folliettes," and many of the skaters came from Minnesota, where ice skating was a familiar activity.
