Too early to tell...

I'm sitting here scratching my head deciding if I should actually say the Sioux are ready to make a 2nd half run or not. On the one hand, they did sweep Bemidji, which is always a tough home and home series. On the other hand...they barely swept Bemidji. There is something not right about it. Don't ask me why, but I just am not feeling confident right now.

Maybe it's the fact that they had to claw their way back into victory both nights of that game. Now you might be saying that is a good thing and shows the resiliency of this team. I'm of the belief you don't get behind teams that you are supposed to beat. I dunno, maybe I just am being pessimistic. Who knows?

Anyway, big upcoming series this weekend against the Sioux's most hated rival, the Gophers. Me, personally, I'm not a huge Gopher hater, but I don't have a lot of respect for the players or the fans. My dad is a Gopher fan and I think a part of him died when I became a Sioux fan. But I have found 99% of Gopher Fans to be cocky, arrogant, and unknowledgeable in the game of hockey.

More coming this week.

You could do what I saw one woman do a number of seasons ago. She was sitting next to a couple of drunk, obnoxious, arrogant gopher fans (we were next to her).

At some point during the second period, close to half-way through the period, they came back. They must have went for drinks in-between periods and decided to miss half of the period.

She started talking to them. She then went on to say that she's from Alabama and became a Bulldog fan. Their heads must have exploded. I'll never forget the look on the one UMTC fan's face.

Maybe he was assuming that if someone from Alabama actually liked hockey that they'd like the gophers instead. Arrogance I tell you.
