#8 Gophers vs #4 North Dakota

Usually by the time these teams meet we've all had a few games to figure out who's going to have the upperhand in C-Town's most heated rivalry I can think of. This year, however, this game is going to mark the first time many of us have seen any college hockey for about 6 months. None of that matters though, there isn't a team in all of sports that I hate more than the fucking Sioux. Honestly I'm having a hard time looking at that fucking indian head at the top of this post as I'm typing this, just makes me wanna puke.

I'm aware that in the cities and on campus the Badgers are probably a bigger rival for the Gophs in all sports, but up north it doesn't get any bigger than this one. Unless your name is Skippy, you're either a Sioux fan or a Gopher fan. There's no other options. And we all know Skippy just likes to cheer for the flashing red light after anybody scores a goal, especially Colorado College for some reason. What a fag.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that if Melsh had scheduled his wedding a week earlier, there would've been an intermission so everybody could gather at the bar and watch the game.

Being that the games this weekend are in Grand Forks, I'm assuming that some of you a-holes are going to make the trip across the border and take in the game(s) first hand. I fully expect a barrage of F-Bombs which lead to moms and their children covering their ears and possibly shedding a few tears.

Also, if anybody takes part in a pre-game drink or 10 at Suite 49, it's a well known fact that paying your tab is unnecessary. Simply drink as much as possible, when you're ready to go order another round and when the waiter walks away, follow him up and head for the parking lot. Once there, you'll need to dip and dive behind cars while crossing the parking lot and head for the Ralph. Really quite simple. You're welcome. Also, Indian children are born alcoholics. See example to the right.

That's about all I got for now, should be a fun week leading up to the games this weekend. I'm counting on Russel to get his shit together and put together some sort of series preview with stats and all that shit, and being that it's only Tuesday there's a good chance it's already on tap. Stay tuned.

  1. FYI - Gophers are #8 and #9 in the USA Today Poll and USCHO polls respectively. The Sioux are #4 in both polls. Not like those rankings mean anything, but I thought I would mention this before some skippy does.

  4. I can't wait for the Laser Light Show. It is going to be awesome. Almost as awesome as my dad coming home today saying he has 2 tickets for both games and asking if I wanted them. Awesome, right? Not so much. I will be on the road for work and I doubt Nacogdoches, TX will show a college hockey game on TV. So save the text messages, I won't even be able to see the games.

  5. For $10 you can get a monthly pass to watch the Sioux games online here. Or just listen to the radio feed online for free. Either way, be prepared for extremely inappropriate texts.

  7. Also, any good stories from the bachelor party last weekend? I fully expected to see some stories/pics on here or circulating via email by now. Pretty disappointing.

  9. I guess we all know what happened to Skipper, seems he was a little hungover and wandering in some back yards. Click here for the story.

  10. What the fuck Russel!?!? So what you're saying is I have to actually read someone else's bullshit about this series? I could really use a one-stop shop to get some Gopher info and sioux bashing shit for the weekend. I know we're all pretty lazy but you're a lawyer for Christ's sake, help us dumb bastards out. I guess I'll just have to wing it.
