Hockey is also on break for "finals" over the next couple of weeks. There are a couple of games in the WCHA this weekend, but I don't care enough about them to discuss it.
A couple hockey nuggets worth mentioning. Mike Carman will be back from his academic suspension when the Gophers return to action. This is good for a couple reasons. 1) He is really good 2)He is probably their top penalty killer 3) Okposo can finally move to wing and maybe score some goals. The other nugget worth mentioning is the World Junior tournament starts next weekend and five Gophers will be on the team. Those five players are Okposo, Ryan Flynn, Cade (mad dogs twin) Fairchild, Mike Carman and Jordan Schroeder (08 Frosh). The four current Gophers will all be gone when the team plays in the Mariucci Classic December 29-30. This could be an issue during their 2nd game when a depleted Gopher team will most likely play Boston College. There is also a chance all four members will be gone when Wayne State comes to town the following weekend but WWWWW and his math team could skate 3rd line and the Gophers would still win both games of that series.
Here's hoping for some drunken ramblings from WWWWWWW during the holiday season to pass the time. I will leave you with the above pictures to get you through the next two weeks of no college hockey. Lammy is soooo gay!
