There will be most kinds of music, dammit. Rock, rap, metal, old school country, novelty.

If there is going to be rap in my car, it is going to be old school or west coast.

I am not sure what is more pathetic... how nerdy this thread is.... or the fact that without a dog (or rodent) in this fight, I actually looked to see if I could make this trip.

Anything new(er) will be stuff like the ODB. Otherwise, it's PE, NWA, LL, DMC, etc.

He used: Ol' Dirty Bastard, ODB, Ason Unique, Osirus, and Big Baby Jesus as stage names. :D

RIP ODB. :(

He has gone on road trips when his team not playing. Unless you count Tech as his team, which might apply.

I do try to attend the MTU@SCSU (Sat game only), mainly for the partying, though. I am planning on NMU@SCSU this year, for the same reason.

I did attend MTU@CC last year, but there was a certain um, other interest there that didn't pan out. :( And it was due to a request from friends (if MN had visited CC, I would have preferred that). Also attended MTU@tUMD last year for 2 reasons: visit friends, and see the new arena without paying jacked-up ticket prices.

I am attending MN@CC this year, though. That should count for something. :)

Brent are you still planning on going out for a "decent" supper thursday besides wings at the DT?

Also has anyone thought about what they are doing during the day either friday or saturday? I'm thinking about going up to Copper Harbor and Brockway Mountain Saturday if anyone wants to join along. There is a microbrew in Copper Harbor that I would recommend trying for those who would want to come up.

I'd have no problem stopping there along the way up or back

I think a couple of us have a hankerin' for some Ambo pizza on Thursday. For either Friday or Saturday, we want to take LWB to the Gay Bar, and depending on snow cover, the black sands beaches. If we do that on Fri, we can double-bubble on Sat.

I'm planning on heading up Friday morning, fairly early to make sure I get in to whatever hotel I'm at, then to the arena on time. Being probably the last time we're ever playing up there, as soon as the schedule came out, I made sure to get that Friday off of work so I could make it up for the weekend.

The Travel Lodge is not ideal, but if you mention you are with the Gopher group, you'll get a discount.

if you all are going to visit Copper Harbor/Fitzgeralds, you better stop by and say hi to the huskyfans. Beer is cold.

Also - If you're going to Copper Harbor...

Make sure you have enough gas to get you back to at least Calumet.

My biggest surprise while vacationing in the Keweenaw about 3 years ago was the lack of a gas station almost anywhere but in Copper Harbor. Had one VERY white knuckle drive back to CH when I was on E for a while and every little town on the map that we went through had nothing.

Due to zero competition (and probably some increased cost for delivery), the gas station in CH was charging well over $5 a gallon, and that was 3-4 years ago. Gotta imagine it's $6-$7 a gallon now.

If we do that on Fri, we can double-bubble on Sat.First of all, Dubble Bubble is only on Friday nights. Second, if you're going to Gay, you may as well make a day of it and go to Copper Harbor.

I'll go on bar-hop up to Copper Harbor and back. Nothing better to do.

Also, Thursday night, I'm not eating anywhere but wings at the DT. Its tradition. Ambo pizza is good for a Saturday night, pre-game dinner. Since Friday night pre-game should really be reserved for dubble bubble.
