Sometimes we fans just need our team to win too. It's not to be overstated nor understated here but as a fan I'm hungry for a W. This weekend's opponent and their fans are probably hungrier. We share that with them. Our guys are 1-1-2 in the last 4 games. It's not the 0-8-0 of the Lakers but nevertheless it's induced the hunger and I'll not by-golly-gee-oh-my deny it.
I'm telling my hunger it will be satiated this weekend. I'm not promising it anything so as not to disappoint but it understands my rationale. Coach Thomas said everything right on the Coaches Show thing with Kurt Haider and David Tuttle. By right, I mean he said everything you and I want to hear.
The team is going to try to push the pace all weekend. I hope that means a by-golly-gee-oh-my boatload of goals. There's so by-golly-gee-oh-my many reasons for such a thing to happen this weekend. First WCHA series, parent's weekend and how by-golly-gee-oh-my hungry we fans are to see such a thing.
My hunger is demanding and while there is nothing left for me to do but wait for events to unfold, I'll continue to allow it to snack on the belief that I'm feeding it. I'm just pretty cock-sure that this year's Seawolves can become something a little bit special and maybe something a bigger bit special. It's got the veteran experience, youthful exuberance and by-golly-gee-oh-my camaraderie to come together and satiate many a UAA fan's gut.
I think it really starts in earnest this weekend with two big wins. I don't have high hopes for attendance as Halloween is typically the lowest attended series of the year. Oh yeah, there's no flies landing on Olivier Mantha. He handled himself particularly well on the show. He's not a crazy goalie. Trust him. He said so.
