Re: #18 Gophers @ #11 Penn St. Feb 21&22

I don't have any stats on this, but it seems like tBob usually coached up a good power play with JBSU. I wish he could get ours going. 24-25% the last 7 years with one season being 29%. It seems they were more stingy on the penalty kill during that time too. Gophers were 24% last year and 25% 2 yea...

Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

St. Cloud and North Dakota are on 9+ local antenna tv both Friday and Saturday night. At least they could put a few games on, not all kids have the chance to see them play. It would be nice to show more Gophers hockey games on local tv. I can't speak for JBSU, but UND does not air their games on an...

Re: Motorsport

I started working at Home Depot January 29th, 2001 and Tony Stewart was all I heard about. I had never watched much racing before, but I remember guys in HS always arguing about Ford vs Chevy and all the drivers, etc. Anyway, I decided to watch the 2001 Daytona 500. I watched the whole race and lear...

Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

But they wouldn't get the same amount of people because that's not how supply and demand works. Your comment shows that you truly don't know how supply and demand works. To drop the ticket price by half, they would need to double the amount of purchasers to break even. Or they could leave it the sa...

Devil's Advocate here, but if they drop the tickets half price and they still get the same amount of people, then they just lost half the money.

Re: This might be a dumb question, but...

So this may just be opening a can of worms but I’m truly interested... Do guys hate or love Valentines Day? Or are you indifferent to it? Too much pressure? Or do you like the romance? I’m asking because good friends of ours are just so different. They go all out, I’m talking roses, jewelry, fancy ...

Re: Home Ownership

Great thanks! I’ll call tomorrow. Do people recommend doing painting before flooring or the other way? The painter said do that first then floor since those can get drips and damage. But the flooring place I spoke with said paint takes 2-3 days to fully dry and replacing carpet and floor can get du...

People who have to walk around stores while having a conversation...on SPEAKER PHONE! :x It’s so rude and annoying. You’re not that important.
Its even worse when they are on their phone in a stall in the bathroom. Seriously, NOTHING is that important that it can't wait a few minutes.

I am confused as to why they are crawling through them? I last played there 21 years ago, but they still look the same and there wasn’t a doggy door on them then!
