  1. Didn't they take over university station on Gateway?

    Watching semi vs Denver (thanks Blackheart) and Caggiula just scored I think number 23. So Jimmy Vesey from Harvard won Hobey with 24 g and 22 a. Decent but he put up way better numbers year before (58 pts???). Caggiula was tiny bit behind in goals regular season. Beoser went for 27 - 33 as a freshman! Makes you realize that the Hobey was a career award back in 2016.

    And all that was because of what was in front of him. I feel like he averaged only facing like 15 shots a game, but maybe that was during the shutouts.
  4. Oh and we sat at the airport for a while. IIRC plane wasn't even there and was coming in from MSP as chartered out of there so I don't think the Ralph partying stories hold.
  5. It's what we heard as well as we flew with the team (I was in the band). Best part of the night was after arena put keg of beer away all the fans under the stadium then went to a bar couple blocks away. Somehow UND had gotten a hold of someone in government to allow bar open after hours. I happened to be outside when police showed up and Roger Thomas put his arm around the cop and they talked briefly and then police left. We then went to airport and team showed up with hockey bags full of 30 racks. We still had to wait for flight and were only ones in airport everyone drinking. Got on flight and someone was pushing cases up the aisle handing beers out with breakfast sandwich. I'm sure I've messed up some details as a long time ago and I wasn't sober.
  6. Why is this on here and why is it allowed mods??? Damn do some of you like being boisterous and put down others with crap like this because they don't party think like you. Mafia I met you way way back in Joe Sensor's days and you didn't act like this in person back then, but people do change over the years. Should I post the white nationalist march pictures? Nazi fascism posters to represent the Republican party? People are entitled to their opinions but many of you are trying to bully others into submission or into not posting. I've voted for both parties in the past and neither in last presidential election (I'd like an official 3rd party on ballot). What many of you that act like this don't realize is you actually make a middle of the road guy like me disgusted and want to vote the other direction. I also don't understand the party of pro-life being so callous in essentially wanting others to die. Sure many things kill people and we don't know the final numbers of this. And that's part of the problem. We don't know. It might be hundreds of thousands or maybe less than flu. Also on the flu how many died that could've been saved if they got the shot? I am one that doesn't get the shot. And yes other problems will arise from this shutdown like suicides. But if you're all of a sudden so concerned about suicides then maybe you should be worried about guns since they are the leading choice to commit suicide. (and I've had family commit suicide). Personally I do think closures started too early and unnecessary in areas that haven't had a case yet. Then I hear as Walz said today Minnesota only has 235 ICU beds. If no bed and you have this virus he said you are 10 times more likely to die. I believe all these facts coming from the U of MN. If that's true then dang kind of important to make sure more infrastructure is in place. And maybe federal and state governments should have gotten moving in January on this to avoid shutting everything down??? I haven't been able to confirm this but saw where this is more contagious as it stays on surfaces way longer. Flu spreads to 1.4 people a day. So even if you were contagious for 10 days it goes to 24 people you infected. This virus a person averages spreading to 3 people a day. If true after 10 days (and isn't it contagious longer) you have spread to 59,000 people. Again haven't confirmed this, but even if it's 2 a day it's a jump of infecting 1024 over 10 day period. This sucks on all fronts and will be debated for a long time after. Hopefully we learn from it and are better prepared on how to manage this better next time. Feel free to reply, but I won't be checking. Following Keikla's lead and out of this thread.
  7. OK so I'm going to preface this with I rarely get sick. Like haven't taken a sick day in years (yes I'm dumb bc I don't get anything for not using them). Is it normal to have the flu for 4 days? Doesn't that make you question things??? I know my brother and his family all had it for like 5 days this winter and he was saying how he's never been that sick for that long.
  8. Actually those numbers are more lopsided. I just googled and attached an article. Top 10% richest own 84% of stock market and it's been trending higher. Only 27% of middle class owned. Few years old. From 2017 Money dot com
  9. Add Big 12 as doing the same.
  10. Big Ten just announced on the broadcast that today is the last and only day fans allowed at the basketball tourney. Really sucks for those in route or those that just got there. It's only the two play in games today.
  11. Because you said this is no big deal and we shouldn't be worried. Or did you mean to include a ?
  12. Is this the same guy that said Trump is healthier than surgeon general is??? So you don't trust the media. I don't trust this guy. (not saying I like what media is doing, but I never do which is why I don't watch it).
  13. Tennis tourney at Indian Wells has postponed as Coachella Valley now has a case. This is a huge tournament. 450,000 go. ESPN Article
  14. Not to mention that this lasts a lot longer than the flu so those hospital beds don't turn over as fast.
  15. Slightly different, but the last two years they've had GF kids that went juniors and then weren't allowed to play for GF so went to EGF. One was the goalie this year and he still had to sit out last year per some ban Red River put on him. I might've messed that up though as heard the news a long time ago.
  16. I should also note that yes class A always has two sections that send teams that don't belong. Usually from the southern part of the state though Fergus was that team throughout the late 90s early 00s. Teams up north would love to get more in, but it is what makes making state so special as the section tourney up north can be a grind. I believe Warroad, EGF, and TRF were all ranked in the top 10. Only one made state.
  17. That's what happens when you have 8 sections and some care more about basketball. Hutchinson may have been lucky to be a #4 seed in Section 8. And in section 8 basketball is dominated by the southern Highway 10 schools that don't have hockey. You can't seed half the state and play two region tourneys. Each section has about 10 teams.
  18. Yes. I think like 592 in GF and Fargo. It's that antenna channel.
  19. and a player leave the bench during fight so he can't play in NCAA if they make it. Last year they had a player suspended for the first round game as well. Their regular season is now over and they sit and wait a long time to see if make NCAAs.
  20. I was there last Friday and they had the Chinese food. I actually had the Phoenix Chicken. It was excellent.

    Get with the times as instagram is dieing to. vsco is the new pic app. Snapchat is still the only way youngsters communicate.
  22. He had a nice goal last night against Mahtomedi. Quick release. Started and I believe was on top line.
  23. Unless something has changed recently there is no cross ownership. Larocque sold his stake in Up North couple years ago.
  24. With that late of a 2nd home game I don't see attendance average being a whole lot better next year. It seems that oddly enough when weather is decent for tailgating more people end up going indoors to watch the game. As season wears on attendance dips. Though I expect that SDSU game to be well attended as I'm betting it's potato bowl.

    2019 Season

    This point times a thousand. Summit scheduling is something awful. Never knowing what day it will be. Seriously weekday games in the early afternoon??? I am cancelling my season tickets as I was able to make it to 3 matches this year.
