Hmm, i wonder if the title of this will draw that one Spartan troll we get here to respond. Anyways, I was just arguing with my roommate about sports. Of course, the inferiority complex all Spartan fans display came out very fast. He said we are jealous that State is much better at sports this year. Also, only football and basketball count. How nice of him to ignore all the other sports. God forbid we count the hockey rivalry as part of it. Yet, when State is rolling in hockey, it seems to suddenly count as something "we dominate you guys in." By the way, for those of you who don't know, Michigan gang raped MSU in hockey this past weekend. I wonder how many Spartan fans realize that the basketball programs have basically split the last few years in head-to-head matchups. Football? Don't get me started. We lost ONE TIME in 7 years and you'd think they've owned us for the past decade. It happens. They were overdue for their 1 in 5 years upset. Thanks for letting me vent. SPARTY NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
So...I intern with a certain cable company in their production department and we get to do all kinds of cool local college games from basketball, football, baseball, softball and hockey. I was pulling some footage for a feature we're running during an upcoming CCHA game when, for the first time ever, I saw the Notre Dame home hockey arena. I was stunned.
I have been to Munn for a game, I have seen games at the Joe, the local inline rink, Yost, the Southgate Civic Center, my back yard but never in my life have I witnessed such a horrid horrid display of arenaness.
Notre Dame has a good hockey program, Notre Dame gets a metric shit ton of donations from alums...and they play in this like....room with a curtain they pull back and have more shit going on the other side. It looks like a god damn mall. Its horrifying. I feel so bad for them.
I don't exactly like teh MSU but at least Munn is quality and feels very homey.
Notre Dame plays in the stock room of the South Bend JC Penny, can someone explain this to me?
I have heard they are building a new facility...but wtf man. wtf.
Folks-- the Dish Network TV guide for my house here in Ohio is showing the Michigan v Michigan St hockey game on tonight, faceoff 7:35p EST, channel 447 "Sports Alternate". I have no extra packages outside the America 200 package or whatever. I'm planning on seeing if the game is going to be shown... and will re-post to this thread if it works.
So with all of the trash talking State has done this year including their billboards, I am really glad to see they are getting some of their overdue karma.
First we had Plaxico pulling a Cheddar Bob from 8 mile and decided to shoot himself in the leg.
Then we have State getting blown out by UNC in a sport which was their only saving grace. Not to mention the fact Michigan was also able to stay competetive against MD, a team that also gave state a whooping.
Now we have former receiver and lions bust, Charles Rogers sitting in jail for apparent assault and battery.
Way to go state.
I know I'm stooping to their level, but HAHA, SPARTY SUCKS.
