Decline The Penalty!?!?!

Perhaps if UAA had the option tonight they'd have come out with a tie? Of course, it's impossible to say exactly what would have happened if such an option were actually available. But 2 shorthanded DU goals were the difference. Each of them were the result of UAA aggressively pressing on their power play and miscues that DU pounced on. What did I say in the preview? That DU had been opportunistic this season? Yep. They were tonight.

Once again the Seawolves didn't finish expertly on a number of decent chances. That isn't to say that DU didn't finish a couple of good chances of their own. Jonny O had a circus-like save that ultimately went for naught as DU cashed in shortly following it. How about a scoring line of Beaverson from Haddad and Wiles? Nice. Won't see that one too often I'd think. For the 11th time this season the Seawolves scored the first goal. Sigh. That is usually an event that would more often than not be a benefit to a team. But alas they've only won 2 games when scoring first.

Best of luck tomorrow night to the team. They played hard and with pride. That's about the best consolation I can offer. It was a tough loss.

Be sure not to ruffle Nancy Mannino's hair too much tomorrow night.

Dwayne from St. Michael:
I've told you over and over and over that you're entirely unwelcome here. Your obsession with me is quite disturbing. I'd prefer that you not even read my blog but unfortunately I'm unable to block you from doing so due to blogspot limitations in that area.

Go away and never come back.

2 shorties Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
Nice to see they didn't quit and came out and played a great 3rd period in my humble estimation. Really good job by JO to keep it from being 7 goals or so. If we can't post the win to beat em let's beat em up boys.

i thought that windmill save johnny 0 had was pretty neat. that's the first time i have seen him make a save like that. despite his nice saves from last night i wouldn't be surprised to see bryce out there tonight.

I watched it here at a bar in Denver. They really didn't look too bad. Being a former nanook and former seawolves season ticket holder, I learned to root for the every game except against UAF. Good luck tonight and I predict a 3-2 victory.

Does it matter who starts in goal? Both give up way too many softies. Can someone steal a game for a change?

We'll have a hard time winning with Johnny 5-Hole being in goal.

At least Jonnie-O can stop one on one breakaways. When was the last time UAA had a goalie would could do that? Lawson sure couldn't.

Jonnie made some great eye popping saves. You can't blame either loss on him. Not many games are going to be won when you only score ONE goal.

Dwayne you creepy fuck:
I couldn't give a shit where you live. Identifying you is the only answer I have available to "out" you for the Internet stalking creep that you are. Deleting your comments would tend to make me a fascist not a communist you stupid ass.

Nothing you post here will EVER be welcome. Get it? Anytime I suspect a post has come from you I'll take a look at my counter and if it did I'll delete it. I'm perfectly happy to allow other people to comment negatively here. But ANYTHING you have to say isn't welcome. ANYTHING. Get it?

Go away and never come back.
