tUMD 3, Those Yet to Win in Their New Arena, 2 (OT)
We won! Who cares if we sucked hardcore for long stretches at a time?
First let me address something. My dear friend Eric Stromgren (newly promoted to beat writer for the Bemidji Pioneer!!!) quoted
Frank Tom Serratore in his weekend preview:
No,“We’ve been thrown to the wolves a little bit here and the thing is, it never gets any easier,” Bemidji State head coach Tom Serratore said. “After Minnesota-Duluth, we have St. Cloud State. Then after Anchorage it’s Denver. It’s a mental and physical challenge. You have to stay out of the box and play good on special teams.”
I liked watching the game on TV and while it wasn't in HD with tons of fancy bells and whistles like the Gopher broadcasts are, it was fine. Plus most of the filler crap on Gopher broadcasts is a gigantic waste of my time. I was at MEg's to watch the game so we had extended periods of time where we had the sound off so we could listen to the Michigan Tech game, so I can't comment on the broadcasters. Other PBers seemed to like them. Neither had toupees which I find unfortunate.
Guys, thanks so much for winning for my "birthday game." Even though it took you 64 minutes and 52.1 seconds to do so, and you almost gave the game away about 100 times, it still counts. (Travis Oleksuk is a god.) I ate about 500 slices of turkey bacon in your honour, and we had a toast with sparkling apple cider. I feel much more confident about driving up tomorrow, knowing that at least you won't be swept, you are the final unbeaten team in the WCHA, and you didn't let the rankings go to your heads and have a total meltdown like last year.
Wins until we reach last season's total: 13! (Ugly wins count the same!)
Points until we reach last season's total: 27! (Sweet!)
