For all those people out there that love to read about the complaining from the WCHA hockey-folk. This blog is played to the tune of the Journey song, "Who's Crying Now?"

Whiner of the Week: Mar 26th

My apologies for the delay in getting this week's WOTW award out there, and for keeping this short. I had a family emergency this week, and that takes precedence over college hockey. Yes, even playoff college hockey.

Anyhoo, after seeing the NCAA playoff field, I fully expected to see plenty of whining coming from MSUM fans. But...I just didn't see nearly as much of it as I expected. I'm sure they were plenty pissed about being brushed over so that a sub-.500 team could get placed in their own regional, but they didn't show it like I thought they would. They probably realized that one OT gwg is all it would have taken against UMN, and that probably would have kept the Gophers out of the NCAA's as well.

Speaking of the Gophers...I never realized that their fans would suck so much even at a F5 that they didn't even win. I guess I thought that their fanbase was better than that. Silly me!

Am I the only one that is getting annoyed with Michigan fans lately? Seriously. You've won more titles than any other team in history...try to act like you've been there before.

What's with MEg? She tells me that she wants to meet me at the F5, and then never gets in contact with me to arrange a meeting time/place.

So, since I need to wrap this up, and because I don't want to pick a solo winner from the above nominees...

Congratulations to the Whiners of the Week:

UMN fans, UM fans, and MEg

MeanEgirl said...

I'm a whiner, goon! Get it right.

WWN knows how to cheer me up even a little bit after that travishamockery on the ice in Colorado Springs last night.

...Stupid Spartans! >=(

I'd like to nominate PC fans. We're not only ready to get rid of our coach after all of 3 years, but we're ready to bulldoze the rink and drop the program. I doubt that MSU-M, UM fans or the infamous MEg would ever be that pessimistic. ;) My blog alone is enough to send a relatively happy person spiraling into prozac territory.
Clearly we should get an honorable mention should this blog expand to cover the rest of the nation. (we're much worse than UNH fans! Come on!)

Well, MEg, you should now be happy with the Colorado Springs regional outcome. :)

No repeat this year.

I would say that I didn't make specific plans to meet MEg, but I knew exactly where to find her.

MeanEgirl said...

RWD for teh win. It isn't hard to find me. :P

MEg gets Whiner of the Week and not me?

AGAIN I was robbed!

I mean, sure, congrats MEg, I guess, but still... :p

I guess the GRADUATE gets her due (JINX!!!! ;) ).

MeanEgirl said...

rw77, don't worry. You won't jinx me getting my degree... I've already done that by buying a diploma frame. Christ, those things are expensive.

WWN... will you be making it to the F4? You should be!

wwn said...

meg- of course I will be at the F4. I haven't missed it in 6 years...I'm not about to stop now. :)

MeanEgirl said...

Well how about not wussing out this time? Come down and meet me.

Section 112, Row 15, Seats 9-11 <== Two of those will have guys... I will probably be the non-guy.
