Slip-Slidin' Away

tUMD 1, Game-Stealers 2

Extrapolating from the season so far, you would think the Bulldogs would have swept this weekend, and so technically, the Mavs accomplished what's known as "stealing a game." I know people like to say "This is the WCHA, anything can happen, blah blah blah," but the bottom line is, we SUCK against Mankato. We suck so much we've even scored on ourselves! So, whatevs, I'm not that broken up. I mean, I hate losing, and I so wanted to subtract from the numbers and take more people off notice and all that, but I'm hoping maybe this was a learning experience, and we play Anchorage hard.

LGM's predictions from The Gauntlet are as follows:
At least one short handed goal (check!) from my boy Kalinski (nope! From My Guy Matt McKnight!)
Also expect to see at least 3 goals from Berge (one goal, GWG tonight)
For the fans, be ready for a rockin' good time at the Alltel Center (DA did not tell me about any rocking that occurred, and we didn't exactly play well, so I doubt that many 'Dogs fans had a good time)
Conclusion: LGM is not the best prognosticator.

I wasn't at the game, of course, I was scoping out the competition at the MTU-UMTC game. Watching it was just as good as watching tUMD, because Tech plays essentially the same game we do... especially the FREAKING POWER PLAY.

I have to say, I was EMBARRASSED by the crappiness of our roads today. I mean, it was a bit of snow, but not that much, and NOTHING was plowed. We had hardy travelers from the UP in town, we should have shown them we, too, know how to handle a snowfall. FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.

I'm tired. Look for my recap of the Tech game on tTech Hockey Blog later, probably tomorrow.

You know, despite the fact that tBulldogs and tHuskies lost, we're still 3rd and 4th, ahead of all the "good" teams other than CC and Denver. Probably won't last long, but still.

Also, there aren't many places that handle their snow as well as Yoopers. Kinda easier to plow Houghton than Minneapolis too.

They were up on my blog just minutes after I commented on this. It's a seperate blog post so I'm not sure how you haven't seen them?!?

I put up several posts tonight, so I think it's the second from the top.
