    Kepler will do Jager Bombs with anyone who understands power play schemes. He likes licorice and he missed Jager in college. But he prefers Irish Car Bombs.

    This was 2007, never had been up there, and was not notified of what lane to be in. We ended up in the left lane, and next thing you know, we're in Hancock. Finally find a place to turn around, was on the bridge when I got a call from MeanEgirl asking where we were. That's when the quote happened, tossed my phone to Quizmire to talk to her, I was too pizzed (and hadn't had a cig all day, it was about 3pm at this point).
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    For this series the biggest issue for Cornell is that it's a huge rink. NMU is real good on the big ice.

    Not a problem anymore. I'd rather we play on a large sheet, now. Our D-men are going to be faster (1 through 6) and have better O skills than anybody we face.

Both Tech and NMU are primed to be really **** good over the next several years, which should re-ignite a very good rivalry (the WCHA championship game already did a good job of starting that last year). You'll see some good hockey over two games between Cornell and NMU, but the thing you will notice more is, the fans in Marquette and Houghton are probably the most knowledgeable hockey fans around. You don't get the casual know-nothing fans in UP. People know their ****.
    Advice #2 get your tickets now. If the NMU ticket office hears opposing fan(s) are going to show up to a game they may, at 1am, put an announcement that tickets are only possible in person a few days before the game.

    Not that NMU would do such a thing.

    Your just saying that because Minnesota produces top hockey talent and is for their love of hockey while Ohio has more D1 and NHL teams than WisconSIN.

    I think I will be safe getting them from the Cornell allotment. While the Faithful do travel well, I do not think we will sell out that particular bloc.

    The Northern Ontario parents? It's just a proverbial hop, skip, and jump from the Soo.

    That was a shot at Tech's rival, Northern, for last years WCHA championship game ticket sales. In fairness, NMU did have a limited supply with massive demand and had to do something.

    You should get tickets without any problem.

    Hmm...

    That is a thought, and parents do get priority (as they should).

    Of course you do, since the average age of a Canadian UND player is 29, right?

    Not bad.

    BUT College Hockey News provided a summary last year of average age of college hockey teams. Nodak was 39th oldest, with an average age of 21y 9mo. Tech was 11th oldest, with an average age of 22 y 4mo. NMU was 4th oldest at 22y 7mo.

    Updated: Sort it by age

    Kidding aside, at the end of the day, it seems everyone except the usual suspects is playing their share of 23 and 24 year-olds.
