Regardless of the result of such polling, I normally wouldn't be interested enough to post this item. The Hockey News; yes ... THE Hockey News conducted a fan-based poll to determine the favorite jerseys all across the hockey landscape. Naturally, UAA won amongst WCHA teams whose fans didn't spam the poll. UofM first ... UND second and UAA third. All well and good since Minnesota and North Dakota have loads of internet fans interested in such things.
However, here is the exact text blurb describing UAA's jersey:
"Nanooks rep Alaska on shoulder, realistic bear"What the fuck Hockey News? You guys didn't notice that the UAF blurb says:
"Like the realistic bear and state shout-out on sleeves"A couple of years ago the non-hockey publication USA Today seemed to confuse UAA and UAF in one of their early Top 20 polls. It was cute that they crapped down their leg. Their poll gets no respect in the college hockey world anyway. But THE Hockey News disrespecting UAA? Not cute; insulting.
I'll leave this in your hands to do as you will. To contact THE Hockey News' editorial staff you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or the web editor at email@example.com.
