The big game is finally upon us. The scrappy team and the tough team. Ok...spoiler alert: they're both the Gophers. A few words from Steve O about the event:


Stub Hub tickets for the SOLD OUT UND/Gopher game: red line/$1250, blue line/$1000. :eek: This event has been in the works since 2015. A lot of fans (UND) were upset that they were deprived tickets. The demand was high, especially after the highly successful UND/BC game at Madison Square Garden last Dec. which sold out @ 11,348 tics.

Me thinks the game would have sold out anyway (with tics available for Gopher fans too ;)) much like MSG if they moved from the 7500 seat Orleans Arena to the new 17500 seat T-Mobile. Apparently most of the tickets for this U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game were snapped up during pre-sales for UND Champions Club members. Well, it is UND's shindig, so they can do what they want. But IMHO a change in venue would have opened it up to more fans and probably sold out with a huge profit margin, even though renting T-Mobile is substantially higher.

Some pretty cool pregame parties are planned: Friday (http://theralph-2014.production.carbonhouse.com/assets/doc/Welcomeparty-64440bbea4.pdf), Saturday (http://theralph-2014.production.carbonhouse.com/assets/doc/PregameInformation-f7e23683d7.pdf). Showing up donning a Gopher jersey amidst a sea of drunken Whioux fans is at best risky...if you know what I mean. ;) I would do it though, but then again I've been training in martial arts for years. :D

So can we watch this on TV? Can you stream it? Maybe NCHC TV? Can you stream it on delay?

If you have Comcast, Mediacom, or Charter you are in luck. Otherwise it's NCHC TV for streaming, I believe.

It should be a blast. Our group of 14 (traveling with 7, meeting 7) will have one, token, gopher fan. That seems about right to me. Isn't gopher hockey attendance considered "token" at best anyway?

We are making him stay at a separate casino, off the strip, however. Friendship is friendship, and it is Vegas where absurdity sometimes reigns, but you have to draw the line somewhere.

If UND would have been proud of their hockey attendance, they would have arranged for a bigger arena. just saying.

Had to make sure we kept the riffraff out.

Why, are they going to attack somebody who is just trying to shake hands?

No, I think UND just felt that if they scheduled the game for a larger arena and it was only 60% filled it would feel too much like a home game for the gophers.

I could see how that would terrorize UND, after all, a Gopher home game is usually a f'hawk ***-whooping.

If the Gophers play the best game theyíre capable of playing, they should be up 3-0 after 1 period on their way to a 5-1 victory.

UND should win decisively unless they play down to the level of the competition. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

I think icehawk was referring to this instead when he mentioned brilliant. Whioux fans are a bit slow on the take so all is forgiven.

Have you seen this yearís version of each team? The only way UND has a snowballís chance in hell is if they overachieve and the Gophers underachieve. Unless both of those things happen I promise you the Gophers will win.

Cool story! If you hadnít realized, I simply copy/pasted the same words of a post you made with a minimal edit.

Itís funny how often you make statements like this and it backfires. I guess you wouldnít know cause you like to disappear when results donít go your way.

Of course I realized, but what I said made sense because this year's Notre Dame team is vastly superior to this year's Duluth team. What you said is nonsensical because this year's Gopher team is vastly superior to this year's North Dakota team. I'd like to say nice try but it wasn't even that, it was a massive swing and a miss. You really should be embarrassed.

Ok got it, you donít understand sarcasm emotes. If anything, I have pity for you. The way you obsess about the NCHC and itís teams is unhealthy. You shouldnít have to disappear to avoid taking ownership for being an ***.
