You Can Leave Your Hat On

tUMD 4, Mankato State University 0

I hope I get an angry letter from MSU-M's attorneys demanding I cease and desist the use of the term "Mankato State University." That would be awesome. It would mean that someone felt that RWD was important enough to threaten with legal action. That's a big deal, guys. I'd get my attorney right on a response.

I really really really really really really appreciate Jack Connolly's efforts to NOT get a hat trick when I wasn't at the game. That would be unbelievably unfair. As it was, it was the THIRD game in a ROW that one of MY GUYS had TWO GOALS. AMAZING. Wow. In years past, maybe I've picked some Guys who were not so handy with the goal scoring, but we can't help who we love. It's very cool to have My Guys having great years. Bordson, I know you'll get going soon! Every time I see you in the stands you look so sad. In Chicago we actually started singing "All By Myself." It was poignant. BE HAPPY!!!! From what I saw of the game, however, it seemed like Jacky had enough grade-A chances to have a double hattrick. I would make up another name for it but I think people would get the wrong idea.

Gergy's goal was fairly hilarious. It was like the goal tUMD gave up to send the NC game to overtime at Lake Placid in 1984. I'm not actually old enough to have remembered actually seeing it (and I was probably snuggled in my crib asleep with my stuffed penguin, or possibly sitting with a wet diaper and tears streaming down my face as my parents stayed glued to the television and ignored my wailing. This is why I should not have children), but it must have haunted DA's dreams for years afterward (or even still) because he has described it to me in detail. The puck went behind the net and Zacharias (Kosti) went to play it, and it hit a little pieces of the boards that was sticking out and came right out front again to Gergen (some nobody from Bowling Green) who did what a good Gergy does and scored. Yay!

Al played OUTSTANDINGLY tonight, and was a total darling in his post-game interview with that girl who really really needs help with questions ("How did you stop all those shots tonight?" I wish he'd answered "WITH MY NINJA POWERS" or something), attributing the shutout to the team and their defence. Great job, Alex! You're such a good role model for little Brady and little Kenny.

Oh, and Charter? In addition to hiring reporters who are essentially clueless (except the African-American gentleman at intermission doing the "This Week In The WCHA" roundup, who made Telly look like Ben Stein... wait... Telly makes Telly look like Ben Stein), you also have the production quality of a television station in the heart of the Congo. I assume. I am EXTREMELY UPSET that there was no post-period interview of you-know-who. Jordy Fulton's interview was nice but he had crazy eyes, which I guess made it even better.

I guess I cant be sad that my two favorite internet broads are happy that their team won.

Are you represented solely Crown Royal, or is the entire Keyport Liquor team going to bat for you?
BTW, I forgot to tell you that at deer camp I saw a Keyport Liquor ad in the paper, and immediately after that tDogs scored!
