I'm not sure if anybody has read the official AP summary of the game, but apparently Kevin Hunwick was playing goal for us. Who knew? He looks exactly like Shawn?
Also there's this goodness from ESPN:
of this blogs life
NoDak's student newspaper called us the Spartans in their Frozen Four preview (second to last paragraph).
for me to declare hatred for South Dakota for life! (see what I did there? I assumed they hate South Dakota)
wait what....NORTH Dakota??? Oh
Well, South Dakota is the REAL Dakota, after all.
but I love you already.
There's at least two of us SoDakkers roaming these here interblogs. And we salute you in the only way we know: with a firm handshake, two fingers off the steering wheel, and some beef jerky.
I am a native NORTH DAKOTAN. And while I appreciate your sentiment tonight, there are at least one of us North Dakotans roaming this board. While I grew up hating the Sioux, I cannot stand for entire state bashing. And you definitely don't want to start a North/South rivalry. Cause we'll go all day.
South Dakota sounds so much warmer......like a tropical paradise.
I feel like that happened on the West Wing...
South Dakota always wears an "I'm With Stupid" T-shirt when taking pictures with North Dakota.
I have seen that many times. I always wondered about that. What makes North Dakotans so stupid? (All 10 of them).
I thought we were playing Notre Dame last night when looking at their rip off logo...
That's alright because I called them the Fighting Sues
They had prepared for Kevin. No wonder they couldn't put a puck past Shawn. What a dastardly bit of strategy by Red.
The UND Newspaper informed the team that they would be playing little brother... no wonder they were unprepared.
Here is the man, in his own words, after the game. He is beaming in his own radiance. He almost seems like he's floating on a cloud when he's talking. He likely is. And deservedly so. HUNWICK, YOU THE MAN!
Or is Hunwick just awesome AND totally dapper?
Whole team wears jacket and tie every game, home or away. Watch Ben Winnett's interview with MGoBlue.com (hijacked by Scooter, Cappy and Rust). In addition to the awesomeness of "Scooter Vaughn reporting, back to you Bob", every player in the video is like attired.
That's pretty standard for the AP. They release re-edited versions of the same story about once an hour.
I don't know how he saw what he did, I was sure some of those shots coming through traffic were just simply going to go in the net.
They also said the first goal was "just 6:34 into the game." (It was 6:34 left in the period.) Maybe the author didn't even realize it was a hockey game, thought it was soccer where the clock counts up from 0.
