A day in the life...

Post by Videoscout » Mon Mar 15, 2004 12:18 am

Woke up ... fell out of bed ...<br>dragged a comb across my head ...<br>found my way downstairs ...<br>had a smoke <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :hat --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/pimp.gif ALT=":hat"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>... MrHfan spoke ... and I went into a dream ...<br>found my coat ... grabbed my hat....<br>made Tommy Reid's in seconds flat.<br><br>And then ... ladies and gentlemen ... the story began.<br><br>So I blow through the doors at TR's just after stopping up at McGovern's, looking for metromick who said he would be playing cribbage upstairs. I was there to pay my debts (JW Black - straight up) but to no avail. Apparently metro didn't show ... which caused me to go ... to Tom Reid's to eat crow.<br><br>Upon entering the door at Tommy Reids ... who else do I run into but two friendly competitors in the bar business up in Warroad; Frank (owner of Frank's Place) and Steve (owner of Main St. Bar & Grill). After the ceremonial greetings, skaking of hands and a few laughs, Frank and Steve present yours truly with a pair of Warroad Warriors hats with the names "Videoscout" and "Slapshooter" embroidered on the back of each one. <br><br>I was at a loss for words, but eventually mustered up enough composure to express my flattery by accepting a drink offered by Frank "hiz-self". Frank and Steve wanted to buy the bar a round, but I assured them that Joe Lulic (who was standing over on the other side of the bar, looking at his watch and wondering where I was) would put the drinks on his tab and Henry Boucha would pick up all our food.<br><br>I tell Frank, Steve, Gary and our good-looking lady (who's name escapes me at this moment) that I'll visit with them in a bit, but first I have to go meet Joe and ChrisK and Spanky Sullivan in the back room. Joe's got all of us rolling in tears before he has to exit the premises and ChrisK cuts his visit short as he was to meet a friend near will call to pick up his semi-final session ticket before his friend lost his patience and sold it to a scalper.<br><br>I express my condolences to Spanky about his cousin, Bill Sullivan (old friend of Cal Marvin's and a hockey giant in NW MN - old school) who suddenly passed away last week, and moved on to the table with a few of my buddies that I will be going to Ottawa with in two weeks.<br><br>Before I got a chance to speak with Frank and the boys, I found out that they were asked to give up their table for a celebrity that was to be showing up any minute.<br><br>Frank and his entourage leave for the Xcel only to realize that their table was being reserved for their good friend, Henry Boucha and his entourage. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :lol --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /laugh.gif ALT=":lol"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br>I immediately hone in on the situation and have Henry sign a note to Slappy on the underside of the bill on Slappy's hat that Frank and the boys gave him. We talked for quite some time (Henry and myself) before the rest of his group showed up. Tommy Reid came over to the table to see everyone, and that's when I got a chance to meet formally introduce myself.<br><br>It was a great time ... lot's of fun .... and Slappy missed it.<br><br>After leaving TR's ... stopped at McGovern's for a quickie .... headed over to Liffey's (Holiday Inn Lounge) across from the Excel to get primed ... and headed over to the rink to see the semi-finals unfold.<br><br>Friday night was a great time, as MrHfan, ChrisK, Joe and a few other Minnhock guys got to meet face-to-face.<br><br><!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :hat --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/pimp.gif ALT=":hat"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> ... just another typical day at the state tournament. <p></p><i></i>

It was fun to watch that Grand Forks guy from the Gophers literally stick it to his home town when he faked like he was going to try for a wrap around situation, and suddenly cut to the goalies glove side from behind the net and slipped it into the net before the goalie knew what hit him! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :lol --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /laugh.gif ALT=":lol"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br>You might say that Minnesota at that point had another one of their wishes 'GRANT'ed! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :rollin --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/roll.gif ALT=":rollin"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br>A WCHA Championship! <br><br>What'd I tell ya? <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :lol --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /laugh.gif ALT=":lol"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br>L<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 0] --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /alien.gif ALT="0]"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> E, SL<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> PSH<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> TER.<br><br>(...a legend in his <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... s/nerd.gif ALT="8o"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> wn mind...) <p></p><i></i>

The Gophers are the better team. They will 3 peat. They now are focused and healthy. It had to be difficult for thr seniors especially after winning two championships to get real interested in playing the regular season. <br><br>But they seem to be a team that can turn it on when they want too and right now, they want too. <br><br>So, BELOW O will be wrong. The boys from ND are good but the Gophers are just that much better and will not be denied. <br><br> <p></p><i></i>

Post by ChrisK » Mon Nov 22, 2004 9:01 am

Great, now I've got a Bob Seger song running through my head, thanks Packerboy. <br><br>Shouldn't the 2004/05 version of this thread be titled 'With the Grain'? Moorhead is the consensus favorite at this point to win Class AA and Warroad is expected to be Breck's strongest challenger for Class A so it isn't really going against the grain to know that the boys from Section 8 will take home all the hardware.<br><br>Then again the song parodies might be harder to come by.

Well, whatayaknow. There are two teams from the same area that are ranked #1. <br><br>Wait a minute,..whats this?

Say, maybe da Spuds and Warriors should have to go have their own tournament and be forced to play with the formerly superior Catholics who better start recruiting if they want to keep up with those crazy 8 people.

SB24,<br><br>Good Question.

Where to go... what to do

Post by packerboy » Thu Dec 16, 2004 9:13 am

Whay have two different chat boards? I dont understand it. <br><br>All of the fine posters on this most outstanding forum are capable of navigating where they want to go. I wont even open a thread entitiled " who has the best uniforms". For those that do...great...enjoy. <br><br>As slappy and I have always said " if you dont like our style, go over to the who will win section 2A thread and have a ball". We dont all have to be alike. Its Ok to be silly once in a while. <br><br>Right as rain slapshooter. <p></p><i></i>
