    Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    An uplifting story, and a reason to hit this place up for lunch soon especially if you haven't been in a while. (Not that the food isn't reason enough.) http://www.grandforksherald.com/community/people/4502325-nd-man-goes-homeless-business-owner Now about re-opening a store on the north side...

    What do you think of the logo now??

    But that's kind of the point, right? Because ALL of those words - that colorful rainbow of verbiage - in fact refer to the SAME team. It's the writer's ability to use the entire palate that makes communication fun, and interesting, and for the most part readable. Pay attention to the next several sportscasts and game articles you come across, and I think you will see the interplay, and value, of interchangeable labels for the teams.

    Predictable response on a message board that caters, in part, to neanderthal sports fans. I see I struck a nerve with my logical, evidence-based, and coherent analysis of the written word. You were so dumbstruck that you could only muster a half-baked insult. You have a great weekend! Your belief that your life is somehow more complete, robust, and fulfilling than mine is surely more than enough to get you by.

    Let's take a trip to comp class/journalism school. Below is last week's game story from fightinghawks.com. Each reference to UND/North Dakota is in bold, each reference to Fighting Hawks is in green. Each reference to Sam Houston/SHSU is in red, each reference to the Bearkats is in blue. For a bonus, "home team" is in yellow. Can you imagine that article without the familiar rhythm and the comfortable flow afforded by alternating labels for the teams? Sports journalism flourishes with nicknames; take them away and the writing is stilted and, yes, quite dull.

    But if the same letter written during the Sioux era would have referenced the team as "Sioux," even casually, then who's douching it up more? Can't say I know the answer, or the man's writing style, but if the omission here was a conscious effort, that could speak to the author's character. Protestation by willful blindness or ignoring plain facts seems kind of childish. Just ask a sportscaster or sports writer how dull their job would be (was) covering a team without a nickname. As a reader/viewer/fan, "University of North Dakota hockey" certainly grew tiring when it was literally the only way for people to describe things. Seems kind of silly to write a paragraph or more about the team without referring to its nickname.

    Bubba, better win the next game. 'Cause if not, the fans will be quite profane. La, la, la, la-la-la-la, la, la, la. La, la, la-la-la-la, la, la, la.

    Grand Forks Economy

    One should be a shop that sells "Space For Lease" and "Liquidation Sale" signs.

    Alerus Center Events

    Metallica reviews, anyone? Experiences and observations in and around the venue? Should GF be proud? Are we a legitimate destination for the big rock acts?

    Prospective Sioux Recruits

    It is hand-picked. https://www.bantamelite.com/page/show/869649-about Now, to your point, the percentage of kids who accept the invitation would certainly be telling. And there are plenty of reasons why a player might pass. But the fact that ND finished in third place (out of 9) and had 3 first-team all-stars tells me you might be underestimating the process.

    That would be the last straw.
