So, a little over 3 hours to go.
I'm watching Boston College/Michigan on FSN right now, getting ready to WATCH some Bulldog hockey. I paid my $50 for the season pass, which is going to be so exciting. Unless there are many technical difficulties, in which case, this will occur:
Anyway, tonight we are playing Lake Superior State. tDogs have not played the Lakers since 1993's NCAA tournament, so I have no idea how the two squads will match up. Educated guess: tDogs will murder them.
This "Superior Showcase" business has been in the works for years. It is my understanding there is not a "winner" to this tournament (making me not want to call it a tournament), but rather conference bragging rights. It seems silly, since everyone already knows tWCHA reigns supreme in college hockey. I think the idea is fun, much more interesting than one of the many GICTSWDGEAOOTs that occur during the year (why do the Gophers have three? It seems so dumb. And yes, I realize the IceBreaker participants are not really cupcakes this year.) It's a fun regional thing. Next year, I would imagine tDogs will be travelling to the UP to take on their opponents at home, which would be an entertaining road trip for fans. We shall see what sort of position RWD is in next year, job-wise, before we make any of those decisions.
I'm having trouble concentrating, so I think it's time to wrap things up. I'll be around after the game with My Guys updates!
