    Will he run commercials promising to help clients "get the vowels they deserve"?
  2. SiouxSports Logo

    On Safari (Mac) it shows up on "Frequently Visited" when a new tab is opened.

  4. Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    Slightly off topic, but has anyone been to the Sickies in Sioux Falls? It's huge! And doing well, by all appearances. Happy to support an ND-based business. I really do hope the GF location sticks around. Parking at EGF can be just as challenging.

    Poll some players and get back to me. Those kids play under tremendous pressure under the best of circumstances. Why double down to make a few bucks? Are you prepared to say that if the weekend goes poorly, no fan is going to bring up the cost of admission?

    At $99, I hope UND gets swept. Not remotely because I want to see the Gophers win, or the Hawks lose, but I do want to see the administration endure some bad karma for freaking doubling the cost of tickets for what amounts to a non-conference weekend that may matter little in the big picture. Rivalry or no, that is a $hit ton of pressure on the home team not to stink up the place. I hope the boys can rise above it, but it's unfair to place them in that position. Big-time opponents have come to the REA for years, and lots of games with post-season implication have been played, but UND has never before had to resort to rank profiteering on the backs of fans.

    Non-exhibition/holiday tickets have sold for $40-45 (less for kids) for years. That's the price I've paid, and I believe it to be a fair price. Isn't that the definition of FMV? How can the seller uncharacteristically and blindly set the price at >100% markup for a pair of games and have that be chalked up to FMV?

    If you're suggesting that 100% markup is the norm for premier games, I'd like to see some evidence. Not questioning your rationale (because I totally get it), just thinking you've mixed in a bit of hyperbole. UND pulled a low-class move, that is almost impossible to defend.
  9. And now it's soccer, too?

    In your head, maybe. Get a life.
  10. And now it's soccer, too?

    You chose an obscure, 15-year-old, single-post thread to use as an image dump? Ever hear of Imgur?
  11. Twins ?

    http://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/twins/4310165-colon-sparkles-again-twins-back-500 I see the cleanse worked wonders. #headlines

    This is the part that I think a lot of people miss when they describe upgrades they would like to see at REA. Everything needs to be scaled down to a significantly smaller facility. While ice projection is a natural feature that is actually overdue (especially for a school that is trying to remain at the top facilities-wise), they can really only do so much with a right-sized suspended center display. I believe that REA has done an incredible job keeping up with the technology and the resolution of the hanging video boards is very good. A monster scoreboard may have negative aesthetic consequences we wouldn't fully appreciate until after it was too late. I don't think the golden FIGHTING SIOUX ring is what's holding things up. At least I hope not, because that would be f'in ridiculous and short-sighted.
  13. What do you think of the logo now??

    As if thinning the ranks of the militant, Sioux-forever types is somehow an altogether bad thing. #freshblood
  14. NCHC Frozen Faceoff - Target Center

    Don't troughs generally keep the line moving faster, though? And at times, that's what really matters.
  15. What do you think of the logo now??

    Do my eyes deceive me, or is that "BU" on the center scoreboard (and on the ice) and "BC"'s eagle logo on the corner scoreboard? Come on, Denver...get your act together.
