01grad Posted March 24, 2003 Share Posted March 24, 2003 Yes I was the Sioux fan at the final five who put on my gopher gear and cheered the furs over Mankato. I just can't stand the state teams and feel I should cheer for a team from the original WCHA. I did however cheer for CC in the chamipionship. We were sitting right behind the presidents at the game who were pulling for the gophers and I guess they rubbed me the wrong way. I grew up a gopher fan, but switched while I attended UND. I will always be a Sioux fan, but when I am at a game I need to pick a side so I had to do it. Some of the Sioux fans around me looked a little dissapionted in me. I just wanted to let you know that I am not one of those people that jumped on the gopher bandwagon. I will always stick with the Sioux and will never revert back to cheering the gophers over North Dakota as I did when I was growing up. I can understand why I got some dirty looks because if I was from North Dakota I would never cheer on the maroon and gold because that would be like these annoying Minnesota people that cheer on the Packers, as was stated in another post. I can't wait until next year. Hopefully we will be able to get the same seats because the people around us were terrific. I felt like I was up at school again the way we were putting down drinks. I think we alone paid for the final five coming back to the X next year. I wish I could get tickets for this weekend, but I am broke. Let's do this thing SIOUX! F the East teams!
