Gophers Hockey vs Badgers Hockey

This is a big weekend for the Gopher mens hockey team. The Wisconsin Badgers roll into town with a three point lead over the Gophers in the WCHA standings. Two Mariucci Arena home games will be good for the Gophers who are still licking their wounds over a pounding last weekend by Mankato.

Gopher fans are encourage to wear GOLD this weekend to Mariucci Arena in an effort to “gold-out” and Badger fans who might be in attendance. The Gophers tied and beat the Badgers earlier in the season in Madison so look for the Badger team to be out for revenge.

There are still Gophers Hockey tickets available from local ticket brokers – going rate? $80 per ticket. There is no doubt that the Gopher Badger series is one of the hottest tickets on the Gopher schedule. Border rivalry at it’s best.

I heard Frazee was playing minor league hockey - is there something new I should know about? He left the Gophs because they didn't need him with Kangas in the net . . . although these days Jeff Frazee might not be so bad.

BTW, I think GOLD OUT is now a bad idea - the gopher teams can't seem to win, maybe it's the blinding color of the fans, it creates a distraction for the HOME team and not the away team.

What would you like to see more of on this blog?
