  • So Long, and Thanks For the Fish! UNO @ NMU, Nov. 20-21

    UNO makes one last trip to the great white north (which is looking sadly not so white yet) to take on the Wildcats. These two fanbases have a history of great rapport and many shenanigans, so let the fun begin!
    Always a Wildcat...

    (longer history of the Spirit Phone found in an older thread -- "Northern Michigan @ Neb. Omaha- The Battle for the Spirit Phone")
    The final entry in last season's edition of the Spirit Phone history...


    2008-2009 Season
    • Mav’s off to best start in CCHA history. Looking forward to the start of the second half of the CCHA season.
    • NMU has a rough start to the season, but are now riding high. They are coming off of their best weekend of the year after sweeping Wisconsin (winning two games straight) in Madison.
    • January 9-10, 2009: The series continues…with both teams fighting to a single victory. January 9th, the evening finishes with a 4-3 UNO victory. January 10th the NMU Wildcats take the game 3-2. The rules, as developed by the Coaches, state that the team in possession of the Spirit Phone will maintain possession if neither wins a majority of points from the other during the regular season. So, the Spirit Phone is buckled in and driven back to Marquette until next year.
    • Series highlight: 22” Northern Pike tossed on the ice in place of the traditional Carp. On ice Spirit Phone presentation of the trophy, puzzled players and quote from Coach Kyle “Well, did we win it?”


    I trust the Spirit Phone has been watched over and will be at the arena on Friday-Saturday (At the luncheon as well?).

    I look forward to the trip. This past weekend delivered an interesting dichotomy for the UNO Maverick fans. Some of the most exciting and dominating play (period #1 Friday) and some blah-flat play during the 1st. and 2nd. on Saturday...

    Go Mavs!!!

          UNO vs. NMU week...my favorite time of the year. It is with great sadness that UNO ventures to a snowless Marquette in an attempt to once again spoil the party which always happens when these two fine D2 schools meet.

          The only thing known for certain is we'll enjoy two very close hockey games, fish will be thrown and shots of jagermeister consumed!!! Such has been the case in this relatively short but oddly enough...friendly rivalry.

          Interesting stats in this series:
          Since 99-2000 season the series is an even split at 13-13-2.

          NMU has an edge in the playoffs at 3-2.

          There has only been one shutout in the history of this series (the 1st game ever played).

          UNO's longest win streaks stand at 4 games and 3 games while NMU has had three separate 3 game winning streaks since 99-2000.

          NMU leads 6-5-2 in one goal games.

          More to come later on past highlights...some which are a bit foggy...

            It makes me quite sad that I'll be missing this. Someone better throw a fish on the ice. Remember, if a smoked herring is used you must create a splint and use hockey tape to secure it making sure to alternate between black and white so it appears to be a ref.

                Thank you 'diva for using this as the thread title. I've enjoyed posting that line to antagonize the UNO fans since their announcement of joining the CCHA.

                  Correct me If I'm wrong, the 1st Lake Trout was used at the Berry and Tunison just looked at it like, "what am I suppose to do".... Someone has the picture, please share....

                  Another Great Week of Hockey coming up. It will be sad to see UNO go, but believe the fan-dom created will continue in spirit and mind between these two schools....

                    Uhh...Aparch? Don't you mean WCHA? They're already in the CCHA. Unless they've already decided to pull an NMU and leave only to return a few years down the road.

                      That's correct. The following night he used Bateman's stick to scrape the fish goo and blood off of the ice. In total I've chucked 4 fish onto the ice at the Berry, and have never been kicked out for a single one. Even though one evil blue haired female member of the blue line club insisted I be removed for ruining a perfectly good hockey game by throwing a fish on the ice.

                            Update on plans for weekend.

                            I checked into shipping some steaks to Marquette for the tailgate on Saturday. A bit costly to send said Nebraska Beef to the edge of Gitchigoomie. Because I am fully committed to said tailgate, the only other viable solution I can see is....

                            Steaks on a Plane!

                            I'll bring a can of Fancy Feast for the Cat fans.
