Re: Local players in the pros

After following Cowgirl's recommendation, I can confirm Leon is in the running for the "Gopher with the hottest wife" award.

Assuming most of the parents probably attend the games, why do majority of the players say hi to mom and dad on the TV??? Drives me nuts
So Mom and Dad can see it later on the DVR.

Re: Local players in the pros

Leon Bristedt leads the SHL in points for U25 players. That's pretty solid and it sounds like there is at least some NHL team interest. Also, he might win the award for hottest wife/gf of any Gopher player ever... Thank you Sweden. Doubtful. Russ Anderson married Miss America. Dorothy Benham from E...

Thanks for offering those up Joe. Sorry I couldn't use them, but glad another fan got to go to the game. And you posted it in the right place, don't let anyone tell you different.

Re: B1G 1st Round vs Notre Dame

Not for nothing, but I offered FREE tickets to the Friday game and over the course of many hours had exactly ONE taker. Don't ever say anything on this board again about ticket prices...

Looks like FS2 is on 740 on Xfinity. Yay. I have a dinner to attend Friday so I can DVR the game. The channel number may vary depending on what part of the Twin Cities you're located. My guide is showing two separate FS2's, one on 740 and the other on 691. But so far, no Gopher hockey is showing up...
