Michigan Hockey: National Championship Game Open Thread

Submitted by MichFan1997 on April 9th, 2011 at 10:12 AM

Starting us off early today. Shut the fuck up about math problems people. We're playing in a CHAMPIONSHIP game today. The only math I'm worried about is if the sum of Michigan's goal total is greater than the sum of Minnesota-Duluth's goal total.

I'm going to Northside Liquor this afternoon.  Someone suggest some beers for me to pick up (but I don't like IPAs and super-dark beers).

Matilda is one of my favorites, if you like belgian beers there's that and Sofie. I'd also highly recommend the Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold; that's definitely drinkable enough for a long session.

I'd also try the Dogfish Head India Brown Ale. It's nothing like an IPA, it's a little on the sweeter side and not bitter at all. They put a couple tasting notes on the bottle if you want to see. But definitely the Dortmunder Gold, that's what I went with for the Super Bowl and it didn't let me down.

I'm from about 45 minutes south of the Wisconsin border. Maybe I'll make it up one day.

Have you ever had Tyranena? They're out of Wisconsin (no idea how far west they distribute) and their Brewers Gone Wild series is incredible. Shaggin' in the Woods Scotch Ale is definitely my favorite beer of all time. Now that I think of it I'll have to crack one open for todays game.

Sorry dude, that was me -- I honestly thought that you were being sarcastic, and thought there was no way that a beer was called Moose Drool.  I've switched it to a +1 -- and unfortunately there's no moose drool in A2.

I have a fillet of salmon that brined over night, waiting to go on the smoker.  I'm making a something called a Potato Cake that I saw on FoodTV this morning, and will also serve some sort of lettuce wrap.  Aside from that, there's not much else I'm going to do while waiting for the big game.

Go Blue!

Not a lot happening--and our battered athletic program has a team that  is playing for a NAYSHINAL CHAMPIONSHIP in one of the Big 4 sports! Holy cow, gents--stop being so GD pretentious and have some fun with this!

Favorite post of this thread so far: The guy who said all math problems equal 5'7.

The sheer genious of that post seems to have been lost on petty arguments about the timing of a thread that NEEDS to be out there!

I mean, we all talk about all the Harruumph Harrumph tradition of the football team--let's not forget UM's hockey team sets the standard for greatness in that sport as well. UM hockey is the Gold Pants Standard.

It's just that this thread is going to get lost on the board come game time, and it will have like 3 million posts before the game even starts. Maybe a pre-game thread would have been better, but it isn't a big deal. I can roll with this.
