Yeah but then you won't get to watch horrible hockey. Oh wait yes you could by turning on a Wings game. :DHey, now... sad as it is, the OU team has a much better shot at making the playoffs than the Gophers do.

Although, nine strategic wins and the Gophs win the whole thing...



Man leave the guy alone. F2B&G just wants to watch a hockey game he doesn't want to be stalked by the "interesting" one. :D :p ;) :)

F2B&G run while you have the chance. Trust me. I'm speaking from personal experience. :pI'll be busy running the scoreboard. I won't have time to stalk anybody. :p

True but it's still bad hockey. Think of it this way. The guys who aren't good enough to play at Tech play at Oakland. :D

You always make time to stalk people. :p

What night are you coming?

Most likely Saturday


Chris Durno on the cover of the Program.:eek:

Scores the game tying goal.:) :)

That was a great second effort to chip in Hedberg's lazy rebound.

We kinda met already. Two years ago, when the two of you came to Carny against UW, remember? ;)

Yes I reminder. I'm glad I got the chance to meet you.

I was just trying to warn you. Be afraid!!! Be very afraid!!! :D

Incidentally, there is no such thing as "bad" hockey. Perhaps there is a distinction to be made between "higher quality" hockey and "lower quality" hockey, but I've never had a "bad" time at any hockey game.

Minnesotans, of all people, should know that. :p

And the guys who aren't good enough to play at Tech play for Tech's club team, the Wolfpack. ;)

How many NHL games do you have to be in before your sweater/jersey is put in the corridor or where ever. Are those "roster games" or "on ice games"?
Quoted to get attention. Dorkisak will remember, I forgot what Jamie said. It is something like 75.

2008, Denver Frozen Four, I slept through the BC/North Dakota game, it was that boring. I will call that bad hockey.

The 2008 Tech Northern Series, horrible hockey.

OK, yeah that was bad hockey. :o

People's perceptions are often too extreme though. Just because your team might lose 6-1 doesn't mean you had a 'bad' experience overall.

I see a bad hockey game as a high scoring game. I absolutely hate watching bad defense. It kills me

Not all goalfests are poorly played. The 6-5 OT win against the Gophers last year was an example of pi55-poor defense & goaltending leading to a firehouse game. The 5-4 win over the Gophers a few years ago in Minneapolis was an example of a decent game with a lot of goals (well, decent for everyone except Frazee maybe :p).

Depending on how long ago that was, I may have been very disappointed that night...

Early March 07. Minnesota won the MacNaughton on Friday and then started Frazee on Saturday, even though Briggsieve ultimately gave up the game-winning goal. Justin St. Louis had his one and only career night - a hat trick - after DU's Mike Hanzda dropped a racial slur on him during the Carny series that year and lit a fire under him.

Yep, I was there...and I was not happy.

Ditto. I hated the Sioux, and I couldn't even be happy at seeing that drubbing.

Beyond horrid. That was worse than an abortion of a series.

Ah yes, and then we gutted out CC in 3 games for the right to poop the bed against Wisconsin at the F5. What a "magical" run. :rolleyes:

And then we were supposed to get some hyphen guy who was a monster on offense and he never came and then Jordan Foote got beat up.

And then we lost to Toronto.

But we beat the formidable powerhouse that was the 08-09 Gophers! :D ;)

There was a win against the Siouxage in there somewhere too. I think it resulted in not totally failing at the GLI like we did this year. :(
