Hibbing

This is the Hibbing, MN arena, built in 1935.

Hibbing is the city Bob Dylan grew up in, and if he would have spent more time at the rink and less time thinking about becoming the next Woody Guthrie, who knows how he would have turned out.

Dylan’s high school sweetheart, Echo Helstrom, once said that she and Bob would sometimes go skating, but Dylan’s brother David said it’s nonsense, that Bob never wore skates in his life. I can’t picture Bob Dylan playing hockey, but I feel if he would have signed up for minor hockey when he was young and applied himself somewhat, he could’ve been a somebody.

He could’ve been a Hab.
