Never ceases to amaze me when I come here how little akron state fans know about hockey. Good contingent of us here tonight though.
Btw, no damn hot water for handwashing anywhere in this dump.

We were a bunch of Wal-Mart Wolverines.

What a game, though.  As has been said many times, here and else where.  The second half seems to be tremendously much better than the first half.  This game could be the start of something big for this team.

I just noticed that there's a Reebok on Michigan's hockey jerseys.  Just seemed strange considering our close relationship with Adidas in pretty much every other sport.  Any one have any more info about this?

You are correct.  Not sure why Adidas doesn't just put their logo on the jersey, i would assume that it would be possible to manufactuer the jerseys in an Adidas factory, or just sew the Adidas logo on intead of the Reebok in a Reebok factory.  Doesn't matter i guess, same jersey regardless of which branch of Adidas makes it.

I haven't been at Yost in a long while, but we don't play too much piped in music do we? Cause it seems that everytime we come back from commercial you can hear the stadium blasting generic Top 40 music

just about exclusively band, with the exception of warm-ups and when a goal is scored, which is a split between the band and some awful new RAWWWWWWWWWK sound.  Wait until after the renovations in a year or two though, band music down by half, piped in stuff fills the void.

There was three times more piped in music at this game than band.  As much as I hate the ohio golden bearcats, they do have a good band.  Would have much rather heard them than "Who Let the Dogs Out" three freaking times.

Even my daughter, who likes that type of music started to complain about the music.

Special K would have been proud.

Just found out since I have BTN (Time Warner customer) I can access BTN2Go for free and watch all the sportz.


EDIT: Necessary because I'm at work which doesn't have the sweet cable package I do at my house despite the fact I work at a tv station.

Michigan 2, Ohio 0

Michigan will have a 58 second power play to start the third

I think OSU had a better period than the first, but Michigan is playing a very good road game so far

Man I wish I was there right now ... I wish even more that I was going to the game on Sunday. Unfortunately my friends are scurred of snow and don't want to go to the game, and it'd be too awkward to go by myself.  This after no one wanted to go to Wednesday's bball game with me because $5 plus service fees was still "too much money".  FML, I need some more jim beam.

That stinks, hopefully you'll be better soon.  On the bright side, I bet your cough medicine tastes similar to red stag.  (Just kidding, I like red stag, even though it has a medicinal taste).
