Sorry about the title, but a tip of the cap to Mr. McBadgerton for the inspiration.

No apologies needed.

It's a shame that more of The Old Cheers aren't on YouTube somewhere.

See also: the fact that smart phones didn't catch on until after we stopped doing "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" at opposing goalies to get them to turn around.

That extra Fill the Bowl ticket I mentioned earlier...my friend who is also a student with season tickets (and therefore has an extra) was given a seat right next to mine. It is now a free pair of reserved tickets, so if anyone wants them, let me know.

Good job icebadger! Although I suspect that somewhere, Daniel Cajanus just dropped a B1G Finnish tear. :(

Btw posters- If you don't understand this post, just ask yourselves how that differs from any other posts I make?


Alright. Let's get this thing rollin'! Because out NEXT thread is going to be titled: Wisconsin Hockey Vol. XXX: VII!

We need to get WiscDC on this immediately.

We have done it a few times in the past year, but we haven't done it yet this semester. There's potential there, and there were plenty of good "TURN AROUND"s when it came out during the WCHA playoff home series last year.

We've been getting a little more organization in the student section this year, and I'm not going to try and blast everyone with a boatload of things to memorize. We've been singing "Wisconsin's Pride" at least once every game, and it has now gotten to the point where enough people are singing it that others are learning it just by hearing others sing it (the same way most people learn "If You Want To Be A Badger")...because singing actual school songs is better than "buttercup."

Anyone at the OSU series heard rousing renditions of "Oh, How I Hate Ohio State."

And during the Minnesota series, everyone knew "see the badger, see the badger / with his tail up in the air / Minnesota, Minnesota, you can kiss what's under there" (to the tune of "Oh My Darling, Clementine"). I heard that one while in line outside of the arena, and the whole student section got that one going pretty quickly.

I remember we were going to sing it against OSU at one point, but then other stuff started happening.

Also, I still don't get why it's a "rumble rink."

Also, I still don't get why it's a "rumble rink."


At the Coliseum between the 2nd and 3rd periods, shortly before play started and after fans had started to return from the beer garden, 3 "super fans" who were dressed in something like the modern day green men, would make their way to the balcony over the opposing goal with a rubber chicken tied to a hockey stick and lead the following cheer:
Superfans: "Is this not the winning net?" pointing to the Badger goal with his chicken

Crowd response: "Yes this is the winning net!"

Superfans: "Is this not the losing net?" pointing to the opposing goal

Crowd response: "Yes this is the losing net!"

Superfans: "Is this not the BIG scoreboard?" pointing to the scoreboard over center ice

Crowd response: "Yes this is the BIG scoreboard?"

Superfans: "Is this not the rumble rink?" (As in let's get ready to rumble.)

Crowd response: "Yes this is the rumble rink!"

Superfans: "Winning net!"

Crowd: "Winning net!"

Superfans: "Losing net!"

Crowd" "Losing net!"

Superfans: "BIG scoreboard!"

Crowd: "BIG scoreboard!"

Superfans: "Rumble rink!"

Crowd: "Rumble rink!"

And the finale,

Superfan: "Who's a sieve?"

And the crowd would loudly respond with the goalie's last name and then start the Sieve chant. It was ****ing classic. *Tears in my eyes*

Wisc DC....I love "Total Eclipse of the Heart" at the women's games. Be sure and do that one @ LB Friday night. It's much more appropriate at a gal's game, IMHO, having guys serenade a gal.

No word on Barnes yet....?

Pure speculation but I think he'll play. Schuey said yesterday something like "with Barnes back in the line up... uh, I mean... if he's back..." Seemed like he was catching himself.

I know. That's practically water tight info, huh? I have stock tips that work the same way for a low, low price for whoever is interested!

He looked good enough to play when I walked out of the Kohl Center at the same time as him this past weekend. That must mean something, right?

Next time give him a big slap on the shoulder and see if he flinches....or maybe that isn't a good idea.

Well that's better than the stupid idea I had, which was Chuck could have gone,"Hey Tyler, How's the shoulder?"

Of course then I realized we're now living in the future, and Chuck might not have had Tyler's number to text that to him.

If only there were more people like you around in my final two seasons.

I saw the that Friday's game was a "record crowd" in the Varsity magazine. I had heard that before, but I assumed it was tied for first with a whole bunch of other sellouts. However, the official attendance was about a hundred above the capacity figure and sellouts in previous years. Neat.

Down 1 goal to CC on Saturday, and "why do you build me up" triggered everyone singing really loudly. Of course CC scored the tying goal. When it does happen (which it hasn't in the second semester, IIRC), it's far and away louder than the handful of us singing school songs, but as I said, enough people whom I don't know at all (whether closely or just "kind of") are starting to learn them. "Hot time" gets a bunch of singing, too.

The facebook group helped.

I had heard that the capacity for hockey went up by 34 seats this year. Not sure how, but evidently that accounts for the "record crowd".

I was noticing my previous post could be construed as a jab at Chuck. It's not. It's a jab at my daughter who only seems capable of talking to people with her thumbs.

Barnes seemed to be a non-issue on last night's Wisconsin Hockey Hour, so I guess I take that as he will be good to go.

EDIT:Makes me really curious about lines this week as well.
