The D-League as petri dish for weird basketball concepts.
"You can play defense every day" -- Red Berenson
I'm officially losing it. I don't know if my nerves can take watching this game in public.
I would love it if someone posted a livestream link for later tonight. I have no television so I'd prefer to sit in my dorm and watch on my computer while drinking. Otherwise I have to go to a bar and beg them to put on a sporting event that nobody else there will care about, and then overpay for booze.
It's scheduled to be streamed on ESPN3, I'm sure there will be alternate links if Harvard Law's interweb doesn't include ESPN3 for some goofy reason.
Thanks man. I'll also throw it out there that I have a final exam today to which I will be wearing a Michigan hockey jersey and hat. Represent.
about to go shopping at the mall. will be wearing my michigan hockey sweatshirt proudly here in delaware. since there's no sales tax in delaware i expect half of the east coast to be at the mall this morning so i'm really hoping to get at least one 'go blue'
It's been a long time since I've been this nervous, anxious, and excited on a Saturday afternoon. It's like that ad for Ab Ripper X, I hate it, yet I love it.
We are the higher seed so we are either maize or white. I'm hoping for maize. Has to be the most spectacular uniform in all of sports. Besides our home football unis anyway.
at work I am so fucking pumped for this game.
that is all
do I really need to say more
For those of you in Chicago looking to watch the game at one of the Michigan bars, Rockit will NOT be showing the game with sound.
I mean, seriously.
Duffy's it is, I guess.
White Sox and Cubs? Because the Bulls and Blackhawks don't even play tonight. It can't be opening "day"...
Knowing a little bit about Rockit, they'll probably be playing goofy music videos to match up with whatever the DJ is playing or they'll be playing their own advertisements on the tvs. I guess it's the downside of having a Michigan Alumni Club sponsored bar which isn't really a sports bar.
I hope it isn't the case, but it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't even have sound for the entire ND night game this year. Or they'll have sound but the DJ will pump his club music in every commercial break and "accidentally" forget to turn it off until a few plays late each commercial break until they just start phasing out the football sound when the saturday night crowd starts coming in.
Yep. Matilda will have it with full sound, too. Headed there now. Watched there Thursday; they did it right. Rockit is full of fail as a Michigan bar.
Awesome video. Ice hockey has got to be the one sport I wish I had learned how to play when I was young.
Wow that was great. Also worht noting the amount of those highlights which were backchecks, shotblocks and the other unglamerous things which this less-talented-than-some team has had to do all year to be sucessful. Like this year's basketball team who succeeded in much the same way, it's beautiful to watch.
Where do you all think is the best lace to watch the game in Ann Arbor, if I leave my house? Dissapointed in Charlie's durring the CC game (though during the Duke bball game, it was awesome).
the year we lost to air force in the first round I just went to BWW on state and there were a good number of fans there. I'm sure there will be a ton there tonight. plus the screens will be huge and all
and be posted here?
We may need separate open threads for each period. Otherwise this one's probably going to be a board-killing monster.
any word if burlon is playing tonight?
Yes, Brian - hockey odds
I have been obsessed for this day for over a decade. I have really been out of my mind these last couple days. I have had so many flashbacks to the '98 postseason. Even down to weird thoughts like "Wow, my roommate's Birkenstocks feel pretty awesome (as I am walking through the diag) and Marty Turco is such a fucking pimp."
SO PUMPED!!! I got decently drunk last night, just wrote a final exam...it was way easier than expected, if anything I overstudied. Stopped at the liquor store on the way home, and now I'm going to sit on my couch and watch family guy until game time. If we win, I'm going out and will behave in a way as to thank the hockey gods.
Let's. Do. This.
minutes until game time.
Off to the bar in Chicago to watch. To steal from Brian Cook, circa 2006: Go. Fight. Win. Please.
It'll be interesting to see how Michigan goes after this team. Do they sit back and wait to counter? Or do they open it up?
I think they open it up. The Jose Morin...(not trying to spell the rest) style from the UND game was something we only do against teams that are better than we are.
I love how early this thread started and yes, FUCK math problems and any related discussion, Go BLUE!
Espn3 does not work in South Korea, and I can't find a link to stream ESPN for some reason
brother. We'll keep you informed.
or were those opening ceremonies the most cheesy thing ever?
No, I think the blonde wigs in the UMD crowd are the cheesiest things in the building
LET'S GO BLUE!!!
or is Melrose already talking like we can't win? Let me be the first to say, FUCK Melrose.
Gotta love those Maize jerseys!
