Gopher Hockey: That’s 2 but 3 is still a charm

March 22, 2007

Ah what wounderful weekends of hockey we have had. Well probley not if your a Sioux fan or Badger fan but that’s okay you’ll get over it. Old news we won the MacNaughton cup by beating Michigan Tech whatever they didn’t even make it into the Final Five which pissed me off because i didn’t even want Wisconi in the tournament because they suck and Elliot needs to just go sign a damn pro contract so they can suck even more…. ha ha ha. Anyways so then the Gopher faced off against the Badgers and beat them with Blake Wheeler getting the Hat Trick. I do have to say one thing about the Badgers though. Brian Elliot is seriously the shit. It’s hard to say that but he does deserve a lot of credit for the team even making it to the Final Five but other than that the badgers suck. So it was very impressive for Blake Wheeler to get a Hat Trick. The Fighting Sioux beat the shit out of St.Cloud which I enjoyed watching. So that ment that the Fighting Sioux and the Minnesota Golden Gophers would get one more chance to bitch at each other across the bench. It was very entertaining to listen to the announcer named Kevin G. tell us all what was going on between the benches. It kept me busy when I got bored watching the Gophers in the Sioux end all the time. Oh and I should probley mention that the Sioux won the Final Five last year. Wow lets all click our heels together for them. Maybe we will give Oshie and Toews a beer while we are at it. While we are on that topic I think it is fucken bullshit that Bina got to play after he let his 2 underaged teamates out of a cop car. That is BS but then again they are all soooooooo important to the Sioux. Yeah well Davey boy maybe you should have though of that when you were putting Toews and Oshie out there and killing all of your penalties. I think he screwed himself but who am I to judge I’m just a kid. So the Gophers beat the Sioux in a thrilling overtime game (Which shouldn’t have went in to overtime) with Blake Wheeler getting the diving goal. Oh and I still Love how the Sioux fans bitch and bitch and bitch about the goal because it was against them. god, don’t you people have lives. It was a goal your just jealouse because for once you were getting your asses handed to you. Now to the Flynn goal that was waved off. Its a bitch and all but Tony Lucia fanned on it so yeah. But you can see in the replay he was trying to get up. but whatever all that matters is that we beat the Sioux and alls well ends well. Now on to the NCAA tourney where we play Air force and if we beat them we either play Michigan or North Dakota. Wow I’m so unimpressed. Now the Sioux get to get their hopes up that they beat Michigan and get to play us. Yeah well just so you know we are all pulling for Michigan so we can wave good bye as we head to the Frozen Four. It should be a great weekend of hockey and I hope you all have you brackets filled out and ready to go. And if any of you are pulling for and upset again. Don’t bet on it because Donny Lucia is making sure that doesn’t happen.

Gophers VS Michigan Tech

March 4, 2007

So we won the MacNaughton Cup. We beat out St.Cloud but they won the DQ cup. What ever thats fine they can have it. Um friday nights game was a lot better than Saturday nights game. Not just because we won the cup and all but we just played a lot better on friday. Maybe that had something to do with the fact that Kellen was in the net and not Jeff. God what is up with him!? It’s like when Robbie Bina got that goal against him. All Robbie had to do was throw the puck at Jeff and it went in. Yeah ROBBIE WAS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RINK! My point is made. umm friday night like I said was better. The whole team in general was working hard and it showed because they won 3-1. Mich scored first but then we came back and all that stuff. On to saturday night. For god sakes how hard is it for the fricken ref to call a tripping penalty, a holding/hooking, penalty, or how about interference! What the heck. I’m not blaming the loss on the refs because it wasn’t there fault but come on the guy has his hands over the puck and the gophers cant get it because apparently it would be slashing. It was really annoying how there were two 5 on ‘s for the huskies but when there should have been an obviouse one for us he didn’t call it. anyways im done. But first i just want to thank North Dakota for beating the shit out of St.Cloud in “The Dog Pound”

Gophers vs St.Clown

March 3, 2007

arg! okay so friday nights game was a waste of mine and everyone elses time! for god sakes the Gophers looked like crap! it was like a flash back of the North Dakota series. Saturday night oh my gosh don’t even get me started what the hell! Somebody needs to inform the Gophers that it is a three period game not two periods. They went out there and embarassed themselves both games. It’s okay because today we play a team that is .500 but that means little in the WCHA the Gophers need to prove to everyone that they deserve to be number 1 and hey ALL YOU NEEDED LAST WEEKEND WAS A POINT AND YOU BLEW IT! Anyways it doesn’t matter because we need to focas on Mich. Tech. The huskies are fighting for home ice in the playoffs. personally i don’t think they deserve it because there are better teams out there who actully deserve it.
