    No need to apologize. Those of us in Rochester, MI know we're much smarter than the MN crowd (despite the Mayo).

    We in MN falsely assumed the MI crowd could deduce what we were talking about.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    That has always been my assumption. Like all the reasonably smart people who end up at Michigan State with their 3.2ish GPAs. And the 2.8 types who land at Central.

    And then there's my alma mater with the 2.5 types. Maybe.

    And Fade, the 2.5 types at NMU are far better than the 2.2 types at Lake State.

    Well, that goes without saying. Even Frank Anzalone once called LSSU "a glorified high school".

    Reminds me of our "if you're happy and you know it" cheer back during the CCHA days.
    It's been changed in the last decade, but the verses used to be:
    1. If you can't get into college go to State
    2. If you can't get into State go to Western
    3. If you can't get into Western go back to high school
    4. If you can't into high school go to Ferris

    If you can’t get into college
    And you don’t possess the knowledge
    Go to state

    If you want to drive a bus go to state
    ...
    If you want to drive a bus, without the college fuss
    Go to state

    In high school if something went wrong for our team on the ice/field it was often:

    That's all right
    That's ok
    You'll all work for us some day!


    Mostly used when playing Richfield, Cooper, Osseo...

    We also held up newspapers during sections when the opposing team's players were introduced, or stood up and turned our backs...

    It is reassuring that in these troubled times the internet continues to reach new lows.
