We're Comin' To Your City

Ok, don't everyone die of a heart attack at once, because I'm posting twice in one day. It's not even going to be a good post.

tDogs released their schedule a little under two weeks ago, and even though I've known the schedule for quite awhile (thanks to a tPB poster with some inside info), I've been too lazy to bother dissecting it.

RWD attendance at tUMD games will be somewhat a rarity this season (as it is every season) as I will be back in school pursuing an advanced degree in World Domination. My attendance might improve if I get a new job, but we shall see. If anyone wants to pay me to write RWD, it would greatly increase the number of posts on this site. I'm only asking for $50,000 a year! That's a BARGAIN, comrades!

***DISCLAIMER*** You can't hold me to any predictions this far in advance!

Home games are in pink. Away games are in brown.

Lake Superior State
Oct 13
Northern Michigan
(Superior Cup games)

I like the idea of the Superior Cup, I think it's a lot more interesting than being an invitee to some other school's tournament (like the Ohio fiasco we went to last year, or tGICTSWDGEAOOT*. Not that we would ever be invited to the latter, as we are not cupcakes.)

Oct 19/20
St. Cloud State
I really wanted to go to this series, for the First And Only RWD Bachelorettestravaganza, but it's not in the cards. Maybe the FAORWDB will have to be the Superior Cup, but it would be so much more fun to be drunk and yell at St. Cloud. Plus, LGM and WT might have been persuaded to attend. Fear not, Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on St. Cloud.

Oct 26/27
Denver
I know last year I said I wouldn't go to Denver, and then I didn't, but I'm definitely not going this year. It should be noted that we are once again playing Denver on my birthday, and so they will die.

Nov 9/10
Colorado College
No chance of going to this game. I won't even be able to listen to the games. Someone will have to text me updates (CISKIE!). We will sweep.

Nov 16/17
Michigan Tech
This is the only game we will DEFINITELY be attending. MEg would murder me if I didn't go. tDogs will murder Tech. Mike Curry will get a hat trick. I will die happy (many years from now).

Nov 23/24
North Dakota
The GF trip is going to have to wait. But I would like to get a win at the Ralph. I'm cool with a split.

Nov 30/Dec 1
MSU-Mankato
This one has a very slim chance of occurring. I would have to get a new job, first of all, and even then, I'd only be able to go to the Saturday night game, and I'd have to drive to Mankato like a bat out of hell (which is no problem) to get to the game on time. A FREE TICKET might convince me it is possible. Please, don't let this be a Battle of the Basement again.

Dec 7/8
Alaska Anchorage
Not going to happen. Not even if Donald was coming. SexyLaw won't be there. Sweep.

Dec 14
U.S. NationalUnder-18 Team
(Exhibition)
I'm not driving to Duluth just to see us playing the teenagers. Must-win.

Jan 4/5
Bemidji State
As a protest for Beargate 2006, I will not be going. Evidently, we're done with the whole Home-and-Home business. VENGEANCE!!! Sweep.

Jan 11/12
MSU-Mankato
It's pretty sad that we are playing Mankato 4 games this year and I'm most likely going to miss all of the games. But I guess if you've seen one cheap shot, you've seen them all. And if you've seen your team score on itself once, you hang yourself. Season sweep??? (It's doubtful, but a girl can dream.)

Jan 18/19
Minnesota-Twin Cities
Who's buyin'? Time to take back the DECC!

Jan 25/26
UMass-Lowell
This would be a really interesting series to go to, because I love going to Massachusetts, and I could probably convince the RWD East Coast Correspondents to come with me. Let's get the sweep this year, boys!

Feb 1/2
Wisconsin
With The Hick no longer in Wisconsin, it's much harder to get out there. I'd like to go, esp. if my buddy BB is going, but weirdly school is on back to back weekends.

Feb 8/9
OFF

Feb 15
Michigan Tech
SORRY MEg! But I'm sure the boys will sweep without me.

Feb 22/23
Colorado College
This would be a fun series to go to, and actually might maybe kind of be feasible. PLUS, MafiaMan owes me a Duluth trip. AHEM AHEM.

Mar 1/2
North Dakota
Would be soooooooooo fun. But caaaaaaaaaan't make it. I'd like to see some wins against UND this year.

Mar 7/8
Minnesota-Twin Cities
Kill.

Mar 14/15/16
WCHA First Round
Note the optimism in the pink text.

Mar 20/21/22
WCHA Final Five
PRESENT! Tickets will be ordered in November!

Mar 28/29/30
NCAA Regionals
We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Apr 3/5
NCAA Frozen Four
I'd be in Denver in a heartbeat for my 'Dogs. Can't wait to hoist the first banner (because I personally would be raising it.)

The weirdest thing about this year's schedule is all the pinks in a row there. Too many home series over break. Those are going to be some poorly attended games... UNLESS WE ROCK!!! (Which we will!!!!)

I will point out that the Badgers also invite cupcake teams. Then lose to them all.

I might actually be able to talk LGM into attending a non-Mav game (gasp) if you're going to be there RWD!! I usually attend this game with my Dad, since he's a UMD alum and still likes to cheer for them - even though he's a Husky SEASON TICKET HOLDER!! It should be illegal! :)

You should try to get to MSU, though, cuz you can actually get drunk AT THE GAME and yell, whereas at SCSU, you have to get drunk before the game and then sneak liquor into the arena like an underage kid .. and yell!!!! :)

I can't go to the St. Cloud game, though. I have school that weekend.

If I do go to the Mavs game, you'll have to come down, too.

Fortunately for Bulldog fans both in Duluth and out of town my "potential attendance" will likely NEVER have to be a factor in deciding whether they should go or not. I've never gotten down there for hockey and would be lucky to get to a Final Five.

I think maybe I'll start one of those internet begging things to send me to the Final Five. "Click here to send Donald to Minneapolis" ... there could actually be a gopher fan or two that would toss five bucks my way if it might get them a chance to take a poke at me.

And that my dear is a natural organic progression: from your seed of an idea requesting RWD employment to my soothingly reassuring comment to the Bulldog faithful, then transitioning through some self pity into a brilliant new age internet solution to an old age problem.

Were those other comments drafts?

WinTwins57 said...

Say the word, and I'll be there. I'd probably even cheer for the Dogs!! :) LGM only lets me cheer for the other team when it's SCSU or UMD. Otherwise she kicks my ass if I cheer against her Mavs. Oh well!!

LetsGoMavs said...

Dogs play the Mavs 4 times and you don't think you can make any games? What's up with THAT?!?! Weak!! You need to make one of them in Kato...it's closer than Duluth..and we have adult beverages at our arena:)

What's up with this bachelorette stuff? You neglected to say you're getting married! Curry finally popped the question?

Runninwiththedogs said...

Oh man, I got all shivery at the prospect, but no, it's not Curry.

I WANT to go, but it's a school weekend. And if I don't have a new job by then, I'll be in school AND working.

MeanEgirl said...

Sorry, friend. The Bulldogs will NOT be sweeping my Huskies in the MacInnes. With or without you.

And why will Mike Curry get a hat trick against and only against Tech? Why not the Gophers?

I'm eating applesauce out of a Ziploc baggie right now. It's quite the challenge.
