Jess Myers on KFAN

Goon brought to my attention the Jess Myers interview on KFAN. It can be found here.

To sum it up, he swings from Richard Bachman's junk, calling him the best goaltender in the conference. Kind of funny when he lets North Dakota score 7 goals on him in a weekend. Jess thinks the Gophers are the suprise of the NCAA. Um, AIR FORCE undeated???? And he says St. Cloud is in a must win situation this weekend, even though it's NOVEMBER!!!! But the biggest thing Jess talked about that bugged me is the Sioux. He couldn't even name Eidsness as the starter and said that ND is just "ok". I agreed with the producer that you do have to come up in the Frozen Four and beat Boston College, but still. For Jess to say for Wisconsin, Mankato, and St. Cloud "oh it's early in the season" and to say to North Dakota "I don't say I told you so...but I told you so" in his defending of the Sioux's 7th place prediction is pretty poor journalism at best.

My question to you readers is...what do you think Jess has against the Sioux, if anything? Or is he just trying to keep the pot stirred?

I believe you mean Fuzzy McStinkypants.

I was was wondering what this guy does for a real job, heck I can name most of the goalies in the WCHA. If I was covering a league like Jess I would hope he would at least know that.

Goon said...

Just for the record I like McStinkypants as a name for him but also Jess is a Bulldog fan. So that might explain it. There is an old saying about it isn't easy being green.

This instance nonwithstanding, sometimes I'm a little embarrassed at how many Sioux fans think everyone is out to get our team.

Fuzzy McStinkypants has a history of no love for the Sioux...he does live in Minneapolis if that tells you anything...

Goon said...

It's not about getting our team it is about being accurate, or at least knowing the players in your league...

Brandon said...

not only knowing the players in the league but being consistent. To say about 3 other teams that it's early in the season but about ours that "I told you so"? Where's the credibility in that????

Jess has about as much knowledge of the WCHA, as my sister Jessica does, only my sister lives in Georgia.. What's Jess' excuse??

Goon said...

Brett that is about it. I think sometimes he slights the Sioux so he can read irate emails from Sioux fans.
