Rink of Dreams: man builds hockey rink in the middle of his farm

MINNESOTA - You may have seen the film ‘Field of Dreams.’  Well, one Minnesota man has now built a rink of dreams.

He says kids in the town needed a new place to skate.  So using an "if you build it, they will come" mentality he decided to build the hockey rink in the middle of a farm.  He even forked over $20,000 for a set of professional boards.
