    2018-19 Non-UND College Hockey

    Played for the Fargo Force, too. Even Buccigross kicked in some BucciOT #CawlidgeHawkey money.

    Twins ?

    I hope not. And I also hope he stays in MN. We all know his last contract was only good for an all-star catcher, and has been a target of MN "fans" since the very next injury, but he is still an effective player and he's the face of the organization. Local boy who has only played for the local team. Probably only one (or one of two or three) Twins players that other teams' fan bases can name. My hope is that they can come to agreement on a reasonable contract, maybe a 3 year deal, and let him finish out his career in MN.

    Twins ?

    Mauer launches a grand slam (to center!) and the Twins finally beat the Yankees. During this season, small victories like breaking that losing streak to NY are/were all we got.

    UND's First Offensive Play vs. Washington

    Play action to Santiago, as the MLB will dive hard on the line given it looks like our standard first play, then a quick hit on a slant route into the open space off the motion (motion gets you inside the OLB). I'd like to see it to Izzy, but would be happy with one of our possession guys as well - turn that big body and be your own shield. May only go for 5 - 8 yards, but it would be a positive start! Ooops, I answered seriously. Sorry!

    Leaving work at 2:00 today to head to GF. Forecast for Thursday: A little tailgate, a lot of cheering, and a big smile after the win!

    Twins ?

    Wild walk-off win last night! I'm going to see a couple games vs. KC this weekend, so I hope they've saved a little of that magic. Half expecting a couple of 8-7 games in that series...

    Twins ?

    reminded this weekend, that at least the Twins aren't Baltimore! Always love getting a sweep, but Baltimore is just bad at baseball.

    Who else would I have been talking about? Don't you recognize him? He's the under-secretary to the equipment manager's assistant's travel agent for the Chicago Blackhawks!

    Fair enough. I only had the one picture on this computer, and it looked like Mattson's lettering could have been green in that one. :shrug: The mystery continues...

    Could well be - I took this pick when they had to break them out. Side note; At that moment, had you said one of the guys with his back to me would win a cup, I'd have picked the wrong one.

    I can almost guarantee this (bolded) is the case! I'm no NHL scout, but I've seen Senden play approx 30 games, and never once wondered if he was good enough to play at UND. Would I like to see him score more? Of course, I cheer for the Force and all goals are good goals but there's more to the game than that. For instance, he just won the Tom Clifford Leadership and Dedication Award for last season.

    Mark Senden and the Fargo Force won the Clark Cup over the weekend! Second Cup in 4 years for Eades as a coach and GM - http://www.kvrr.com/2018/05/20/clark-cup-champion-fargo-force-welcomed-home-fans/

    former players

    Maybe his green glove was a half an inch longer? The red stuff hasn't been as good for him. That goal was right in front of me, and he was visibly defeated when it went in. I found it interesting that he didn't play Friday night (Fargo route, don't let the 2 meaningless goals in the last couple minutes fool you into thinking that game was close), but he went in for the elimination game. Obviously they believed in him.

    Impressive Pothole development

    SiouxVolley gives an explanation that makes more sense than what we've heard around here - in Fargo, we've been hearing for years that they have to put in a sprinkler system over 3 stories. Not sure if that's true, or an interpretation of the truth, but would be an added cost as most buildings around here don't have sprinklers. I'm guessing sprinklers are a lot cheaper than those deep footings, though!

    2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    Just a note to Vegas and SJ; I have to be at work by 7:30 AM, central time zone. If you could just start winning games in regulation so I can get a little sleep, I'd appreciate it. Now, where's that second pot of coffee...

    The Name 'em Game: 2018-19 Edition

    He's already enrolled for summer classes. While not a guarantee, that's a pretty good indicator.

    So, just to confirm, you're not planning to vacation in Philly?

    I honestly feel bad for him. Hopefully he can go back home and catch on in AZ.

    And another goal Wednesday night, as the Force finish the first round sweep with a 3-0 shutout.

    2018-19 Non-UND College Hockey

    Word in town is that he's de-committed from Omaha, and will be at MN. Rumor came out over the weekend. Side note: Tri-City at Fargo in the first round of the playoffs tonight & Wednesday (Thursday if necessary), if anyone wants to make a visit to Fargo for some good hockey.

    Twins ?

    Getting to be a lot of make-up games to wedge into the season. Rest? Who needs rest days?

    Only replying to the bolded point; For a lot of these kids, they go to juniors to try to get into a "better" school. Cruising through HS in rural Michigan might get you a look from Lake Superior State, but how can you show that you've got the talent to get a look from UND or BC (or whoever you want to pick as the big names), if you don't get on the ice and show it against better competition? If you're trying to get into college before turning 20, you might need to play that senior season in juniors to get the offer you want from the school you want. Following the Fargo Force closely for the last decade, I can't tell you how many players have de-committed from a school when they were able to secure an offer from a bigger name. Until they sign their letter, they have options.

    University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    This ^^^ I was laughing out loud and had to read several of the punch lines to my wife. We were targeted because we care more than most (probably all) and we show up better than all. My favorite was about having all the regionals in Fargo. They referenced that UND fans would travel anywhere, but the real message was to the rest of the country that if they're not going to show up, we'll have everyone play in an arena that's going to be full. Both of those points acknowledge our fan base for what it is.

    Frozen Four

    We'll be there.

    Randklev will definitely benefit from a full year in the USHL. I think he'll stay as a 2019, and both he and UND will be better for it. Even Boeser played a full year in the USHL to get ready...
