My Gopher Gal Christmas Wish List
(and the probability I might actually get it):
Gopher Mittens (75%) – I really want these and my hubby knows it, but they are like $20 and that seems like a lot of money to pay for mittens, especially considering my track record for losing them.
Gopher Hoodie (65%) – gold, black or grey- there are a lot of styles I like.
Yellow Gophers T-Shirt (40%) – with all these gold out events, I need another gold shirt, but my hubby thinks the two I already have is enough.
Gopher Stocking Cap (40%) – in black or maroon. I like the look of my long locks coming out the bottom of stocking caps in this frigid weather, I usually wear a Wild one, but a Gopher one would be nice.
Gopher Football Jersey (35%) – I already have a hockey jersey, now a football one would be nice – especially to wear at the new TCF Bank Stadium next year!
Insight Bowl Tickets (0%) – this is just a dream.

The pioneer press did an article on him last Saturday – it makes me love him even more. Check out their slideshow pictures before they take them down – Jordan Schroeder is a looker!

I am totally addicted to Gopher hockey right now. They don’t play again until January 2nd, I hope I don’t start shaking from withdrawal.

I have thinking about the Gopher Football team all week. I just can’t get them out of my head. I want to travel down to Arizona so bad to see the Insight Bowl, it’s not even funny. There is no way financially I can do that right now, but I can’t stop thinking about it.
The Gophers started the first of 15 practices yesterday to get ready for the big game. They will practice through the 21st and then break until they arrive in Tempe.
The entire Gopher football team will fly down to Phoenix Christmas night, do you suppose I could tag along in Adam Webers suitcase? I promise I won’t be too much trouble. Perhaps I could carry his water bottle or sweaty towel or socks – anything! I am feeling desperate. Remember, I am one of those fans that volunteered to put pom poms on thousands of seats in my free time!

In fact, Gopher Gal is wishing for a plane ticket to Phoenix right now! The Minnesota snow and the cold are already driving me crazy. I can’t stop day dreaming about flying to Arizona for New Years Eve and partying all day and all night with other Gopher fans in the warm Arizona sun.
I hope the Gopher Football team shows off their talent a little better than they did at the end of the regular season. The way I see it; this is the chance to end the season the right way, with a win!
INSIGHT BOWL DETAILS
Wednesday December 31st at 5pm (Central TV Time – 4pm if you are actually going to AZ)

Gophers bowl bound...what a joke. How does a team with a loosing conference record (3-5)in a weak conference qualify for a bowl? Not to mention that the 7 wins were against teams with loosing or .500 records. OK, Montana State had a winning record. Are UofM fans so hard up for a bowl game that they'll consider a win over a 1AA team a significant accomplishment? Give me a break!
Wow, Anonymous – I am getting some negative energy from your comment. Yes, the conference record was a definite downer, but the fact that this team was 1-11 (0-8 conference) just one year ago makes the fact that we can even attend a Bowl Game a significant accomplishment. Yeah, there is work to be done, but at least we are moving in the right direction. I would concur that this UofM fan is pretty hard up (in more ways than one), but I am not going to pass on celebrating the little victories.
