Yes. You are seeing that correctly. According to the ADN the Seawolves are opening the home WCHA schedule against the "Bulldogs". Ok ... it's not beyond me to make a mistake ya know? But as mistakes go ... getting the name of your opponent wrong is a doozy. It'll be interesting if that made it into the print version.
And yes. I know I call CC the "Black Bears". but that's intentional ya know? Maybe Doyle thinks Mavericks is a really dumb name and the WCHA needs another team named Bulldogs?
All right. I'm done having my little bit of fun with that. But when the "lamestream" (HA!) media completely ignores you and you've been blogging longer than them and consistently providing more information (even when I didn't have the same media access) then I can be forgiven for sticking my tongue out at the ADN and Doyle once in a while.
Earlier in the week a commenter on this blog post thanked Doyle for mentioning the promotions noting that last year they didn't know where to find such information. Ouch. That honestly made my shoulders drop a wee bit ... ya know? I've only been doing this for nearly five years.
A Chat Room for this weekend's games will be contingent on a reader stepping up to volunteer to moderate the room. It's very simple. Blog friend BBEF did this in the past but is a CC fan and has a game to attend. It'd be wrong for me to ask, expect or even accept his offer to do this. I need a UAA fan that is interested and available. Email me. It's email@example.com. If I get no offers, there'll be no chat because the other proggy I've used have changed their pricing and there's no way I'm going to pay them 9 bucks a month just so more than 10 users can participate.
