Making Like A Banana

tUMD 3, Enginerds 2

Well. The very first thing I thought when I woke up this morning was "We lost." Then I thought "Holy crap, I overslept my class." Whoops. Things happen.

Last night was very stressful. I really don't like to see Tech lose, because I like to see non-UND/UMTC programs succeeding, because I am a fan of Tech fans (esp. MEg), and because of Robby Nolan's general hottness, but! I never like to see tUMD lose. I think even in a charity game against a bunch of kids with incurable diseases, I'd have trouble accepting it. I certainly don't like to see us give up 5 goals, 3 of them to Seth Green Peter Rouleau, and two of THOSE were specific types of goals I hate to give up (SH and EN), but I'd rather give up 5 goals to Tech than to UMTC or St. Cloud. All was not lost though, since MIKE CURRY!!! had an assist, and Chad Huttel got his first goal as a Bulldog.

Tonight was even more stressful. I find sometimes I am more stressed when we are ahead than I am when we are tied or behind, because I feel there is some way that we will lose the lead. I realize it seems like I have no faith in my team, but it's just the way I am, and with hockey, the game can change in just an instant. And it did, because with just over two minutes to go, Tech scored to tie the game, and I practically broke the sound barrier with my rage. AND THEN, Birthday Boy Evan Oberg decided it was about time he got his first goal, and we won!

CC is next. We will give them the same treatment in our home that they gave us in theirs. I expect nothing less.

Well, at least the birthday boy got the GWG and the first one of his career. What a great thing to have happen to him.

Btw, his goal was like a knife to all of our chests at once. Bleh.

Oh well though. It was a good series. The Friday game was a VERY fun game to watch, even though Tech didn't come out on top. Good hockey by both sides.

And... *sigh* ... Drew Akins.. <3
