Yeehaw! It’s finally that time of year. The Minnesota Gophers open up the hockey season with a preview for next year’s Big Ten hockey conference rival, Michigan State. Even better is that I’m finally in a place on earth where I can watch the games.
It’s the last year for the Gophers to leave their mark on such teams as the Fighting Sioux of North Dakota (ya, I said Fighting Sioux), the Mavericks of Mankato, and I’m sure we’ll all miss the battery throwing fans of St. Cloud State. Or not.
I’ve been out of the loop long enough that I need to do my homework so I know who the hell these boys are so after some programming work, that’s my chore for today.
On another happy, hockey note. The kid walked away with three assists last weekend down in Texas. OH! A funny irony. One of Eddy’s best fights last year was against some punk on the Tornado. See below…
Well, now these two play on the same team. And they’re buds. That’s hockey.
