Re: #1 Gophers vs Notre Dame (Jan. 15 & 16)

Dumb question here, but are all games on BTN+ regardless if they are on TV or not? My thoughts are with my current streaming situation and not wanting to keep Hulu if possible, but if I can get it on BTN+, I can cast the game to my TV.

Re: #1 Gophers @ #12 BADgers (Jan 9 - 10)

Overall, Wisconsin was an OK hockey team. Gophers did dominate play for large stretches of the game. It came down to us really fighting the puck. We made some bad decisions, their goalie stole the game too. Our neutral zone game was awful as well and we still ended up in what is essentially a 1 goal...

Re: Television

Just about done with the Burns Country Music series. One more disc to go. The 7th part dealt with more women in the music (Wynette, Parton, etc) and "outlaw" country (which is prob my favorite style). Although, in retrospect, the women of that era I would also consider outlaw country; singing about...

Re: Restaurant

Bootlegging? Like going over to Osceola WI to get a load of what is brewed in New Glarus? Seriously there is a road in Northern Anoka Co. / Southern Isanti Co. that is actually named today "Whiskey Rd." The University Ave extension out of Bethel is Whiskey Rd as it runs to Isanti & rumor has it tha...

Re: Simple Pleasures...

I should also add, there are a few talents I possess, mostly around the realm of home improvement and woodworking, but there are 2 skills I have been jealous of those who are talented in and one of them is dancing and the other is instrument, specifically guitar, playing.

Re: Gophers vs Buckeyes Nov 23 & 24

Unless we run out of gas. Yes, with 4 games in 6 days, that is possible. But so far it's appeared to me that the team is very well conditioned. We'll see! Boy, I struggle with the argument/excuse that these 18-23 year old kids can run out of gas playing a game. There is always a bit more in the tan...

The only donut I would wait any amount of time for is Ekegvist old-fashioned sour cream donuts. So good. Not 14 hour good (nothing is).

Also, The Banquet Beer is Coors Leaded and The Silver Bullet is Coors Unleaded.

Re: Gophers vs Buckeyes Nov 23 & 24

It could be the competition is weak, but we're breaking out of our end so much better this year (so far) It may be this, but the compete level from the Gophers is just....different. I didn’t watch any games this weekend, but we are almost 5 minutes into the 2nd and OSU has 1 shot. That’s dominating...

Re: 2020-2021 Gopher Hockey Season Thread - Year 100 of Pride On Ice

I wonder if it's a contractual thing with cable/satellite companies blocking this since live sports is about the only thing left preventing people from cutting the cord. Anyone know if this is true? I cut the cord over 6 years ago and I don’t have any issues watching live sports. Granted, I still h...

Re: Things That Stick In Your Craw

So we’re watching the news last night and there’s a long story on how HS sports may get cancelled again because of COVID outbreaks. Mostly prep football, teams are dropping like flys. So there’s all this angst and cry about “it’s the only thing they enjoy. It’s so sad their season is ruined. Why ca...

Re: Gophers vs Penn St. Nov 19 & 20 --- Let's get year 100 started

Prior to the game, I heard plenty from the UND contingent in Fargo about how the Gophers were a team to look out for due to the fact that they are used to playing in front of no fans. Now those same folks are quiet. Could be the outcome of the game or it could be my rebuttle: "If UND loses a game an...
