I really hate not being a student anymore
M Hockey vs MSU open thread
Also liveblog at http://michiganhockey.net/
Also also Comcast CH 900 if you're in the local area.
It's scary how bad Comley left this program, I have tremendous respect for everything Anastos has done so far.
We all laughed when he was hired, but he's not about as good as one could ask considering how awful the team is. Comley just gave up after winning the NT in 2007 it seems.
1-0 for the good guys
Pulled chicken, spicy pickles, beer and Michigan hockey. I love my life.
What kind of beer? Personally with that delightful menu I'd prefer a heavier IPA like Bells Two Hearted or a Dogfish 60 but even if you're going with the dreaded Coors light I would agree that sounds like a great night.
Personally we just finished cooking for the tailgate (we're bringing bacon wrapped shrimp tomorrow with a side of guacamole as our contribution) and I'm about to hit the hot tub with my lovely wife and a cold 12 Dogs of Christmas Ale.
I'm actually having my last Two Hearted. Jealous of the shrimp, those sound delicious.
I'm headed out to the liquor store in a bit. I had my first taste of Jim Beam Red Stag last night and I'm really considering getting that for tonight (well, maybe a bit tonight, mostly tomorrow for the game), probably along with some Coke.
Justin you should stop by our tailgate tomorrow and say hello if you're gonna be at the game. We're in the blue lot, against the grass about 10 cars in from MDen. We'll be in front of a blue Suburban with an American flag flying and a Michigan helmet on the raised tailgate. And you should be able to recognize my wife from my avatar pic....lol. We'l be there from 9:00am to kickoff and then after the game till God knows when (gotta drive back to Cleveland).
Definitely appreciate the offer, but I won't be making it up to Ann Arbor tomorrow. I had planned on being there for NU earlier in the year, but some softball stuff isn't making it possible. There's still a chance Iowa might work out (and I would kill to be at Michigan Stadium for Denard's senior day, so I'll be trying hard), and if PSU can manage to beat Nebraska combined with a 1995ish game in Columbus I'll definitely be in Indianapolis. If Iowa works out or if you'll be in Indy I'll definitely try and get over to your spot before screaming myself hoarse in the stands.
student announcers saying it was a terrible goal to give up...which is fantastic haha
Nieves - WAT! Waving it off????
seems to be under review.......
actual BOOOOOOOOOOOOO #GONGSHOW
What the fuck refs?
A review in our favor?
I be like dang!
Sparty gettin' tough!
Yeah, when the clock's running out.
State pissing me off is healthy, right?
MSU gets a penalty as time expires. One of their players jacked one of our guys as he was killing the clock
Refs are actually giving us a PP for that? I can hardly believe it.
Not just any guy. Our captain. AJ.
#14 Michigan State bball loses to unranked UConn, 66-62.
I will reserve comment on that so as not to tempt fate.
underway on the powerplay
14:14 to go in the second.
Still 2-0 U-M.
Phew! Avoided a goal on the turnover there.
For all the talk about the head contact rules, I dislike the goalie contact rules even more.
That said, I'll take the power play, thank you.
Still no joy on the PP, though.
seems like it's terrible without Merrill. This was a problem with him out last season as well (not that it's elite with him in, either, it just seems less tire-fire-ish).
Even with him out, it seems like it is better this year. Trouba helps a lot.
D'oh! Copp going to the box.
Shit, they score, 2-1 with :35 left.
Sparty scores with 35.7s left in the period.
2-1 U-M after two. Yanakeff has really kept them in the game.
Oh, man, Copp was robbed.
LOL, I like how Trouba shrugged off that Sparty forechecker.
We want MOAR goals!
Way to capitalize on that turnover!
Yanakeff is really annoying with all those saves.
Still 3-1 Michigan? Thanks.
Trouba needs to control his aggression.
It looked like he had his eyes locked on the guy with the puck and collided with the MSU player unintentionally.
Not sure I see a penalty there.
6:53, Trouba to the box. I don't think he even saw the guy, though.
They only called that cause Forfar was shaken up. Iffy call
This penalty is weak, that was incidental contact.
Good job, PK!
4-1!!! Kevin Lynch!!
Lynch + Moffie = Happy JGB
I was expecting a big game from our Spartan Killer.
Sparty to the box.
JMFT!!! 5-1 good guys!!!!!!!
Trouba Lasers > Trouba Penalties
I feel like Trouba is one of those guys you just have to be grateful isn't playing against you. Kid is absolutely disgusting, and he's a true freshman.
Stream for the basketball game just went kaput. Stream for hockey game???
Roger, thanks. Figured it out when I tried to load up the audio stream.
Beat STAEE tomorrow, too!!!
Then beat their asses on Sunday in the Men's Big Ten soccer championship game.
Great game for us, we just finished off State's terrible night in sports after they lost to UCONN. Let's beat 'em again tomorrow! GO BLUE!
Gonna be a good weekend for Michigan sports. Go Blue!
Had a really good time. Its like the old Yost, but everything is better. The 5-1 final may have affected my perceptions a bit, of course. Those that weren't there also missed a bizzare/awesome gymnastics show between the first and second periods.
Defensive effort tonight was outstanding. Go Blue!
Wow. Woke up to some delicous highlights this morning. Was that a Rhode Island flag for DeBlois? I barely caught it on the highlights.
