See you at the Bee - maybe 5-5:30

I'll be there by 5 pm, question is will they let me in? Can not believe they still remember me at the Golden Bee.

Hey Rich

Did not see the Saturday Wisco game of course - but I was pleased with better defensive effort - fewer shots on goal and seemed on radio to be more in control of puck
I watched Saturday's Wisco game online and I thought the Tigers played better than they did Friday night. On Saturday they controlled much more of the play than they did Friday, and they really looked good.

Will I have trouble getting in? Some of the reviews I've read said there might be a long wait.

I think CC was picked 7th and 8th in the pre-season WCHA polls, but last year the difference between 8th and 3rd was just 5 points. As has already been mentioned, CC is very young this year. Even some of the returning players haven't seen as much ice time as you might expect, since Owens gave the upperclassmen like Rau, Walsky and Connelly a ton of ice time.
So far on both Fridays I really liked how hard the team worked, and they were rewarded with wins. The first Saturday they were completely outworked, and it sounded like their effort wasn't as good on the second Saturday as well. I think this team is missing the top-end talent that most CC teams of the past 15 years have had, but on Fridays their hard work has made up for it.

Hey Rich, I'm wondering if you are the same Rich I am thinking of. You know Eric/Megan?

I would be shocked if it was.

Could be. The Rich I recently met on my trip to the Springs said he has an account here and doesn't post much, so this Rich fits the profile. :o

He has an account in Chez Rube?:confused: :)

I don't think Rich will mind if I tell you the Rich that posted is an engineer I believe, a CC alum, and plays amateur hockey. Pretty quiet guy. Very smart, if that fits the Rich you met you may be on to something.

Does this person's handle rhyme with "***** toy" or "queer dong porn"?:p ;)

No.
It rhymes with Trashy Stan.
That was annoying as hell.

Well, except for the smart guy part, nope. Just met him through mutual friends (the aforementioned Eric/Megan) this last summer.

The Rich I know designs/manufactures/etc construction cranes and the like. Even has a homemade crane in his backyard, which he constructed "for fun." Very much an oddball, too. :cool:

Yeah, but I bet you thought that Michigan would beat Michigan State in football this year too.

Hey Yager, how does the UMD trip look? Are many people interested? Also, who is planning on staying in Duluth Saturday night and drinking at the sports garden? I know that Shirtless and I were planning on staying both nights.

Shirtless: if we end up getting a hotel with the group on Friday night, then we'd need to get one for Saturday night if we stay.

As long as I don't get molested by a crazy stranger this time...

Splitting the room would be good, I don't mind if you crashed there. Can't guarantee the non-molestation thing though, who knows who Shirtless will find in Duluth.:p
