Surprising that his quality MSU upbringing didn't mold him into a better person...
...and NO it's not an M fan with an "obesssion" about MSU when you don't even have to try and "look" for stuff like this about MSU...
It's simply pointing out an abundantly obvious observation.
I don't know how I feel about this article. It is pretty cool that an ESPN article hits so close to home, but it doesn't hit home for me personally. Who are people cheering for tonight?
This should give MSU fans something to be happy about. But then again, this is Tom "ND HOMER" Lemming talking who has a fat head poster of Jimmy Clausen in his speedos plastered on the ceiling above his bed.
EDIT: Lemming was just on and explained himself. He actually made sense imho. He also made Sam look like a fool, again imho.
In light of the weekend hockey events, I have decided to chime in and beat a dead horse. With a different perspective of course.
Because this is a "diary" I will take you back to 1992. It is a warm atumn evening and the lawn needs to be mowed. I am 13 years old and hate that lawn. In fact at this point, I hate life. Parents are dumb, and people are annoying in general. As I mow back and forth about 12 times, it is then time to dump the bag.(yes, I knew at level 3 it took 12 swipes to fill that @#$%&*! bag)
As I go to the dump pile, which seemed about 8 miles away, I see something come from nowhere out of the corner of my eye. The bag of grass goes flying with the clippings all over the freshly mowed grass. I was busy minding my business doing my stupid chores; the right way and some DOUCHE messes with me. It is on! I proceed to chase this freak around the yard and run his ass into a corner on the deck. His only option is to grab the 3 wood that is resting in the corner. Next thing I know I am staring up at the gray skies. That MF'er knocked me cold with the 3 wood.(he threw it and it connected...he knew he could not get in close enough to swing it at me) Who would do such a thing?
You guessed it, that MF'er was my LITTLE brother. Par for the course. I wondered why the events at Yost on Saturday felt so familiar after watching the replays.....
My father went to UofM and is currently on faculty at MSU, heading up the survey research office. He grew up in the U.P. and spent much of his youth playing hockey (I might add he, still plays, in an over 30 league). Many of my family members have played for various colleges and semi-pro teams, so he's fairly well versed in what is and isn't acceptable in hockey.
He is currently working on a project for the MSU athletic department regarding sportsmanship in the student body.
He wasn't watching the game, but I told him what happened.
He has a meeting with the AD in the next week or so, and I asked him if he'd talk to the AD about it. I'm looking forward to what he says. I'll relay it here.
Please get this as much publicity as possible. It'll do no good if we sit around and get angry. We need to get the mainsteam media involved. We need to incite a public outcry. There needs to be severe external pressure on MSU and the CCHA to take action. Send out links and requests to journalists at all the big sports news sites - ESPN, yahoo, cnnsi, cbs, etc.
