I see a road trip in my future
Massimo Rizzo commits to UND. Sounds like he will come in 2019. Great addition to an already strong 2019 class.
Believe it. Earn it. Raise it.
Forwards Gavin Hain, Carter Huber, Jackson Keane and Jasper Weatherby; defensemen Jacob Bernard-Docker and Jonnny Tychonick; and goaltender Adam Scheel.

Pardon the interruption...Please accept this olive branch from a Badger
The BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI is liquidating some of the various artifacts they have acquired through the years. One of the items is a lot of random items including a North Dakota jersey signed by the team.
I would guess this is from 1997 when North Dakota appeared in the Frozen Four at the BC.
Take a look and see if this is something you might want to add to your collection.
As an added bonus in this lot, you also get a WWF Raw t-shirt with a ton of autographs!
Great story on TJ and the A
Put a lump in my throat
As a long time DU fan, it is not often I say nice things about the Fighting Sioux now Hawks. But watching TJ Oshie in the Stanley Cup Finals made me proud for the Good Old Days of the WCHA. Gwozdecky's "DasherDance", the elevator incident, lawn mower throwing, bad blood between CC>DU>UND>UM>UW--all the fun stuff.
TJ played with grit and skill. My favorite Caps player by far. Had to cheer for him even though I favored Vegas. His post game interview will not be forgotten. This was a very special day for TJ with his family and the Cup all together. I sincerely hope his father will have memory of TJ and the Stanley Cup for many years to come.

GO DU !!!
Six of the last seven Stanley Cup champions have featured a North Dakota alum, as TJ Oshie becomes the 12th UND alum to win the Cup (17 times) … his 21 points in 24 playoff games ranked fourth on the team, while he shared the team lead with six power-play goals. Shane Gersich also a Sioux alum became the 100th player to join the NHL & came to the team after finishing his junior year at UND and signed with the Washington Capitals after UND fell out of the playoffs.
Oshie Oshie Oshie!!!
Another Bast coming to UND
Happy offseason, boys.
Mrs. MCR and I are heading up for the Nov. 2 - 3 weekend. There's a good possibility of a bus trip with WI Hockey Backers.
If not, we'll drive up. I could get some info here in Madison but in YOUR opinions, where should we stay, hang out, eat?
This will be my virgin trip to "The Ralph" even though I made a few trips to the old Winter Sports Center in the good ol' days.
I'm looking forward to my return, I just hope my warrants have expired.

As for eating or drinking, I'm sure everyone will suggest the Red Pepper, since that's just what UND and Grand Forks people do when asked about dining options. I have no problem with that suggestion, but would encourage you to consider it as maybe a bar closing option or "third meal" as opposed to just deciding to eat dinner there. Part of the "charm," if you want to call it that, is the large, intoxicated college crowd that you see starting at about 10 pm on the weekends. I suggest the University Avenue location (the original) rather than the one on 42nd.
Personally I enjoy the Rhombus Guys pizza downtown. They also have a separate brew pub/restaurant around the corner from the pizza place. I think both are good.
If you want to see 1970's Grand Forks, which isn't necessarily pretty, but can be entertaining, you can always go to the El Roco lounge. You'll even be able to play a little black jack there.
Judy's Tavern is also the place of local lore for hockey players at UND, although I think I heard it was sold so I'm not sure what it's like since that transaction.
That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
