  1. Mark J Lindquist - Anthem Singer

    (In general) Kneeling is not an intent to disrespect, the large majority of them are not protesting the anthem or the flag and have repeatedly stated that. We could have a discussion about why they should or shouldn't kneel, but it is disingenuous when people project their own reasoning onto protestors actions. It is actually commandeering their protest for one's own means, which subjectively is just as disrespectful. Note: I don't think that you (Frozen) specifically have crossed that line but others have. Personally, I think the linking arms or kneeling BEFORE the anthem were good compromises and attempts to get the point across without letting the "disrespect for the flag" narrative overshadow it . However, one could say that if your arms are linked then your hand is probably not over your heart. However, a good number of people didn't put their hand over their heart in the first place and it was never a problem. I do stand for the anthem when in person (I actually don't while watching TV and never really thought about that until recently) and I do yell Sioux . . .
  2. Mark J Lindquist - Anthem Singer

    He sang Oh, Canada at the MLB All-star game a couple years ago. Just like Mark though, he sings it straight, doesn't drag it out, doesn't try mess with it, just nails it 40 times a year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muBWWwhVCQ4&feature=youtu.be

    Three best anthems on the planet: 1. Leo Welsh 2. Mark J Lindquist 3. That kid from Ottawa
  4. NORTH DAKOTA vs. St Lawrence

    I think they just mean that someone mentioned that Mismash and Kawaguchi were scratched, not really an elaborated story about it. Regarding them sitting, I think that sometimes as a young player, seeing the game from above the ice can be good for you too. Might not necessarily be strictly about performance, but also about the opportunity to see the game.

  7. Miami , Oh

    I lived just north of Miami for a few years, so when the national launched I started making regular trips to Oxford for the games (and to Columbus to watch the women play OSU). Look around at the flights: CVG (Cincinnati airport in Newport Kentucky) is the closest and there is some fun stuff to do around there before heading to campus OR DAY (Dayton) sometimes has better prices. Though campus is pretty sweet that's pretty much all there is in Oxford is campus. Note: You can fly frontier from Bismarck to Cincy . . . probably really cheap. I generally found tickets not so easy to get as the rink is really small and though they may not always show up, the season ticket holders take up a bunch. Standing room only tickets can get you in the door, and towards the end of the first the ushers will actually direct you to an open site (as of two years ago anyway). But I would definitely try grab tickets of some sort ahead of time. I bought tickets from a Sioux fan who donated money to MU in order to get presale access to the tickets, so take them when you can get them. Note: the arena is dry
  8. Improving the game day experience

    Yeah, they were doing the oversized Q-tip "jousting." We had some wooden horses/giraffes/unicorns on the other side of the lot for racing that we brought over. Were going to "sit" on them and try joust but the line and crowed around the jousting pit was a little crazy.

    Sorry, if I sounded too dickish, I didn't mean to . . . re-reading my comment I might have.
  10. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    All time point record is a little misleading; it is only four years. Also, his team was the worst in the league . . . he had seven points in their last game and they still lost (to the second worst team in the league).
  11. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    So "we" win Bantam Elite league, two uncommitted ggf players get honors. Has anyone seen Helgeson or Parker play?
  12. Indian nicknames in the news

    No, I am saying that neo-Nazis are built on a platform of prejudice. Black Lives Matter is a movement for equality; though there are some racist, hateful people in it, the movement is not founded in or based on it. If I start a murder club that would be bad. If two people in your book club murder someone, the book club is not necessarily bad . . . the murderers are. If my murder club is treated with more disdain than your book club, that's not a double standard. I think the most precise definition of a double standard is the application of different sets of principles for similar situations. The situations are not similar. Regarding the last part of your message .......obviously, according to me, you have no idea what I am saying. I wasn't even trying to argue with you, just noting there is a difference between some bad people and a bad institution. I thought you were just being hyperbolic, maybe you aren't, maybe you really think they're the same. Your response where you negatively imply that I think race defines someone's heart though is just plain inflammatory.
  13. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    A couple Blue Jackets writers that I followed just left long-term gigs in traditional news media to go to the Athletic and are now stuck behind a pay wall. As I don't care about Cleveland/Cincinnatti sports or the other markets that they are currently covering I haven't pulled the trigger on a subscription yet. If Russo went there and they started covering other local sports here (Wild, Vikings, etc), I may just jump on board.

    If you ordered from the SW Taco Bell in '89, there is a good chance that you just got your food when you posed this message.
  15. Indian nicknames in the news

    Come on, even though you added the qualifier "many" it is still very hyperbolic. Black Lives Matter is more of an, as you say, movement . . . not a group. The movement does not want to kill all white babies, that's ridiculous. They do not have a charter or a platform that endorses anything of that sort and to compare one or two assholes that aren't white with an entire institution whose history is explicitly built on prejudice, hate, and fear mongering is ridiculous.
