    2019 DI Mens Ice Hockey Championship

    So, we go to the FF every year. Buffalo was the least appealing in a while, but a lot of those empty seats were in the corner where all of the Providence fans quickly and quietly left Thursday evening. I wish they'd have all sold their title game tickets to the scalpers - I don't support the practice, but at least someone might have been sitting there for the Saturday game. We used our off day to tour around much of the area - Finger Lakes, waterfalls, etc., and NY really does have a lot to offer. I left thinking it would look much better in a month than the grey and brown landscapes of April. Talking to a lot of the familiar faces from other fan bases, the overwhelming sentiment was that we'd all be very happy to have Tampa host every year, but Nashville came up a few times as well. A large chunk of the fans (most?) at these games aren't from the fan bases of the teams playing - or would be there regardless - so we're traveling no matter what. Giving us a more desirable place to go can do nothing but expand this group. Just my $0.02.

    2019 DI Mens Ice Hockey Championship

    Heard a nice story on him last night. Apparently he committed to UMass before the bigger names came calling, then stood by his commitment to the school that wanted him early. When Canada wanted him to play in the Olympics, he said no, as he owed it to his team to play the season with them. Seems to have a loyalty score way off the charts -

    Flying out before dawn tomorrow (we always travel Wednesdays for FF's) and hoping to see UMass get their first title with all the former Fargo Force players on their roster. Expect to see a few of you in Buffalo!

    COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    @Irish I think Rick's comment is more to the point that Benson & Lizzote are being brought up like they were gods and the only UND players mentioned in that conversation are guys some feel under perform - meaning they aren't brought up when we're talking about one of the Poolman brothers or Ladue. St. C has had some elites recently (mostly former Force players that end up in LA), but they weren't "local" kids. The locals they have pulled haven't been the 5 star variety at the time they committed.

    Quite a number of former players stick around in the area. Their natural talent sometimes filters down to the kids, then add that they know what it takes to play at a D1 level (and often beyond), and the kids are that much more prepared. A good mix of the top-end local kids has greatly benefited this team in the past, and I believe that trend will continue.

    Goodbye to a SiouxSports Friend * Godspeed, sprig

    I never put together the guy from the hallway at the Ralph as being Sprig on here. Just such sad news. May he rest in peace.

    2019 WEST REGIONAL - SCHEEL'S ARENA

    This is basically what we'll be doing. We do it at the Frozen Four each year, too. Great to talk to fans from other parts of the country and hear about how much they love their boys (or are mad at them, if their team isn't in attendance).

    2018-19 Non-UND College Hockey

    Honestly, I've been waiting for this since last year. They just haven't been able to stay competitive, even when they had multiple NHL-type players.

    According to the weatherman in Fargo, there's plenty of snow, but it's very dry with low moisture content. As of right now, there's not enough moisture to be a worry, but there's still 2 months of snowfalls coming...

    Fortunately, Girbaud's were rolled so tight at the ankles that you couldn't feel the cold anyway - feet has been numb since 10 minutes after getting dressed due to lack of blood flow!
