Is this what Lucia had been doing the past few years in December?
Yes, Lucia is a big fan of golf. :D

BTW, if you want to see what North Dakota's New Jerseys look like...

IMO, not too bad, but I would like to see a better photo, and preferably in color to make my full decision.

A little different than the jersey posted a few pages ago.

Yeah, I'm a little surprised at Gopher fans making golf jokes given what the Gopher teams of the past 3 years were probably doing in late March and April.No it was the injuries that caused the last 3 years. ;)

I'm trying to throw some softballs out there for the Whioux fans but there seems to be 2 of them. I can't figure out what to say to the Eagles fans to get them going. I guess we will just wait for the Saturday game with them.

So one guy picked BU to go the FF simply because they were a preseason favorite, another guy has Cornell beating Michigan and MSU playing for the title, the CCHA rep picking an all CCHA final, and the ECAC rep taking Union. Hey, at least the Atlantic Hockey rep doesn't have Air Force winning it all...

The CCHA guy did pick UMD, actually. They and FSU just happen to use the same clip art program.

Ask them to please have their players refrain from raping any women while in St. Paul. Or run into any trolley cars. Or gamble on the games.

Eagles fans???? You're playing BU - not BC. BC are the Eagles. BU are the Terriers...

But if I kill all the golfers they'll lock me up and throw away the key!

Not "golfers" -- GOPHERS!1!! :mad:

Well, Duluth's logo and Ferris' logo are a bit different...

Are you sure? They are playing the school that is in Boston...wouldn't that be BOSTON College...

:p:D:D

I truly hope you know that we're all just joking...and I think you are just playing along, but you can never really tell.

@GopherPuckLive: "All-sessions" ticket prices for each regional (before added fees) Bridgeport:$60... GreenBay: $66... Worcester: $83.50... St.Paul: $90.

Why such the big discrepancy? Who sets the ticket prices?

EDIT: @GopherPuckLive: Good point by a few tweeters.... The arena rental cost is probably why tickets are so much more expensive in St. Paul...

Some of us have real jobs and families. and, unlike anyone from UND, I have trees and bushes to prune.

Oh I thought you were still in hiding after Friday night's debacle.

Hook, line, and sinker. How many BU fans do you estimate will be in attendance? I guess I could go around counting the guys with a Pauly D haircut, calling bartenders "Chief", ordering Jaeg-bombs, and raping the fine ladies of the midwest but an estimate from a guy in the know will suffice.

Western Michigan will not win the regional because they are a CCHA team. The CCHA sucks. So that leaves only 3 choices.
Boston University was in the ECAC before Hockey East, and the ECAC sucks. So they can't win the region either. That leaves 2 choices.
North Dakota doesn't have enough players to dress for 2 games, so they can't win the region. That leaves 1 choice.

North Dakota got around the lack of players last week by only playing for about 20 minutes when necessary. Seemed to work out okay.

So which will be greater this weekend? The number of BU fans in attendance or the number of women raped by the BU team while in Minnesota?

Can we have an option for bu fans getting raped by Minnesota women?

It's a nice try, but you need some help; you're not playing Middlesex Community College. The stereotypical BU student is either:

A) from Long Island, which is pronounced Lawn Guyland;
B) from the Middle East, has his own condo, two cars and a Kawasaki Ninja;
C) from Asia, has his own condo, two cars, and a Ninja;
D) from Africa, has his own condo, two cars, and a Ninja;

and in all cases
E) has platinum cards, goes skiing (preferable in Switzerland, though Stowe will do in a pinch), and is louder and more confident than most people find acceptable.

You're welcome. :p

EDIT: To put it in context of Entourage: You might think BU students would be like Vincent Chase and his boys, but they're much more likely to be Ari Gold.

Switzerland is my favorite continent in South America.
