In Soviet Wisconsin, Bulldogs Play You!

Ah yes, Wisconsin. Always entertaining. The first post I ever wrote that offended people on the Internets was a post about Wisconsin. I can't remember what it was called, or else I'd be linking to it. There are a lot of posts on RWD, and they are all so amazing that sometimes when I go looking for a specific post I get all wrapped up in reading things I wrote 3 years ago and I'm like Narcissus, staring intently at my computer for hours on end as I re-read brilliant articles I'd forgotten I'd written. It's dangerous.

It's surprising that the first post that would offend people would come from Wisconsin fans, who are probably less present on the internet than any of the other large fanbases and thus their exposure to RWD has been more limited. I assume this is because of all the paint-thinner being huffed; not enough time to check out the blogosphere. I was expecting the first incendiary comments on my behalf to come from the most thin-skinned, quick-to-anger, delusional fanbase in the WCHA, college hockey, and possibly sports in general: the North Dakota fans. How messed up are these folks? Dirty is the most sane among them. (Sorry Goon, but your rantings about AFA and Jess Myers sealed the deal for Dirty; also, sorry Geist, a grown man should not use the term "mrrrraaapants" EVER.) If Dirty can say My Sweet Jacky looks like Carol Brady and still be voted Least Likely To Be Institutionalized, that's just... well, it's a messed up world in which we live.

I don't know why I felt the need to take potshots at the UND fanbase in a Wisconsin post; maybe because I'm interested in seeing my stats counter spin like a slot machine. I hope it lands on all cherries!

Let's review the home series against Wisconsin. I drank 6 shots and physically assaulted InebriatedMike. That was the highlight of the weekend. Friday I flew into a blind rage at Campion (Imagine that! Weird, I thought the SCCC series was the first time we had the flaming moron.) Interesting how the two most poorly officiated series of the year have had the same referee. Hm. Wisconsin also cheated a lot, but this is not so much surprising as it is expected. Fuzzy was ejected from Saturday's game, which was unwarranted. Okay, I don't remember if it really was unwarranted, but he is innocent until remembered guilty. Cody Danberg was also ejected from Saturday's game, and look how well that turned out for him.

But these guys. These guys are the New Bulldogs. They are nassssssssty. Their Connelly is going to be wishing he had a 2nd "o" in his name; he certainly won't have any on the board. Unless it's his save percentage. I'm not exactly sure how I will be following this game; so far the radio appears the only option, which is upsetting. This will be the first series in 2009 that I have missed out on entirely. I'm really hoping the guys can get over missing me desperately and play some good Bulldog hockey. Be brave, Bulldogs! I'll be counting on you!

You are too kind, Secret Commenter. I am so pleased you enjoy the site!

I'm kind of weird about the site's layout. I like small fonts and lots of whitespace, much to the chagrin of Donald at the UAA Fan Blog. To remedy your problem, if you are using Internet Explorer for your browser, you can adjust the text size. Go to the top right-hand corner, and click on the "page" menu. You can zoom or change the text size to make it easier to read. I know some others have had issues with the gold text as well, but it's the school colors, what can I do?
