    Is there a quiz to get into the game? I think it's really nice that you care so much to know about us, but forgive me for not giving a crap about your school.

    I'm sure that our hockey team is very familar with yous. But I'm not fighting, nor playing. And I don't see the point in learning your fight song or traditions to make my entertianment more enjoyable.

    It's a game that I watch, that's it.

    It would probaly make it more interesting to know the players of your team, sure. I know the style you like to play, as it's very very fun to watch- especially when my team is playing yours.

    But beyond that, what's that point?

    As I said in our thread- you remind me of the 10 year old boy who insults the little girl he has a crush on.

      At least becky, jan brady and even whioux fans knew how to get a thread going... I miss the old WCHA.
      Somebody is being heavy?

      Or do you consider the time when we start throwing insults your way lighter.

      Which, it seems, you missed for a LONG time now.

        For a school that hates us so much- it's fascinating that so many of you know history of our helmets more than we do, that you take our fight song and alter the words for fun.

        I can't think of a single thing that is equivallent the other way. Not one.

        Isn't that interesting?
        I find that hard to believe. Even if you weren't in the building for games like, say, this one: http://www.uscho.com/box/mens-hockey...-vs-minnesota/ , I'm willing to bet that you know at least one thing about the University of Minnesota's fight song whether you like to admit it or not. When you hear it that many times, I imagine it starts to stick after awhile.
        "It ain't over, baby! And that took only six seconds!"

        USCHO gives me another reason to not do work while I am at work.

        Everything is Hill's fault.....

        "Hakstol you hack!!!!"

          No, unless the part where you demonstrate to the world that you can spell your state's name, and then say it- I have no idea of your fight song.

          On the other had, you seem to know ours pretty well. hmmmm If you learned it by us scoring....

            With a nod to the esteemed Mr. Slap Shot, lighten up Francis.

            I harbor no ill will to the fine institution that is the U of MI. I certainly don't despise it or their fans, nor do I believe that any of my fellow Gopher hockey brethren do as well.

            These are just some light hearted verbal hand grenades being thrown in the general direction of Ann Arbor.

            This will likely change as the BIG hockey matures and the followers of it become less mature.

            Familiarity breeds contempt, right?

            Besides, Seger > Prince.

              That's cool. Those of us on these board are well versed in college hockey. As for the average Michigan fan, they're often too busy with other things. But I suppose if your school is only good at one thing, you can devote more time to focus on just that.

                The school is good at a lot of things, but hockey is preeminent. We even have a woman's team.

                  Again, who's being heavy?

                  I'm just showing my amusment with your fascination of our school. That, and pointing out that the game isn't a war- just a game- which seems like I'm lightening up the idea.

                  What's even more funny is that for a school that is supposed to be B1G quality, you guys are totally missing the replies. Wake up people- you are being insulted.

                  Do wT and I need to explain that in smaller words?

                    I think fans of opposing teams know your school's fight song because the band plays that song every five minutes and maybe even more during football games. "And that's a loss of five yards on the play for Michigan.... *band plays Hail to the Victors*" LOL!

                    And yes, I meant the part of the fight song where we give you all spelling lessons.









                    And Gopher fans will probably destroy me for this but I like Michigan's fight song, I always have.

                      Just because we use "6th grade" taunts/insults doesn't mean we really care, trust me. Go view some Gopher vs jan brady, whioux or becky threads, we definitely don't care about them and they make 6th grade look mature.


                      It's fine, we get it, you live in the cesspool that is Michigan I would be crabby as well.

                        So let it be written, so let it be done.

                        Still, you are not getting it.

                        Which I find very amusing.

                        You guys crack me up.

                                I'm pretty sure the entire world... except you, is getting it. It was amusing at first, but I grow bored. You can only try to talk to a brick wall for so long and you are obviously just as dense as a brick wall, so it seems a fitting analogy.

                                Oh... was that too 6th grade for you?
                                Don't worry, you may graduate to that level soon so you can understand all this.
