Former Gopher Greats!

Local sports heroes, Lindsay Whalen (Hutchinson, MN) and Janel McCarville (Stevens Point, WI) turned the Gopher Womens hoops team around a little over 10 years ago.  They were the main pieces in a 2004 Final Four run.  Roughly 5 years ago the team decided to sell Whalen (and a year later) McCarville bobbleheads.  I believe only 1000 of each were produced.  I've been looking for each of these for a while and finally found them this weekend.  And after a couple nights ago, they each have Gopher as well as Lynx bobbleheads!

My only question (and I'm sure Janel is curious about this too), why is Lindsay taller than Janel?  Enjoy!
