Frozen Four: Battle Of The Initials

I don’t think anybody, from the hardcore college hockey fans to the ones just watching it for the first time, expected the results that came about on Thursday night. Especially the first semi-final game. At least in how lopsided it was. You know what’s hot? Having a hat trick. Here’s to you, Nathan Gerbe.

Boston College beat North Dakota for the third straight time (damn) 6-1. Maybe there should be a moratorium on these two teams playing in the semi-finals for now on, ok? Can’t they be bracketed on opposite sides? Continue reading

Frozen Four: Boston College

The Boston College Eagles take on the ND Sioux at 6 pm tonight.  Go Fightin’ Sioux!  (Sorry, but I go to Notre Dame and I’m contractually obligated to hate BC.  That’s just how it goes.)

However, they are not devoid of hotties.  In fact, they have quite a few lookers.  So without further ado, here is the BC All-Hottie Team:

Frozen Four: North Dakota

There’s another ND in the Frozen Four and it’s the Fightin’ Sioux of the University of North Dakota.  To finish out the regular season, the ND Sioux went on a winning (or tying) streak that dated back to January 4th.  They stumbled a bit in their conference tourney, but rebounded to beat Princeton and Wisconsin on the way to the Frozen Four.  They’ll face Boston College in the first round on Thursday at 5 pm. Below is your All-Hottie team.  I’m partial to Kyle Radke myself.  Call me!


The best part about this picture is the man nonchalantly sipping his Diet Coke…

NCAA Frozen Four: Michigan

Like Andie I caught some of the college hockey this past weekend. Let me rephrase that, I caught the two Michigan hockey games this past weekend. It’s easier when you realize you have ESPNU and the other games aren’t really on television. While watching I realized two things: 1. Even though I know nothing about hockey I can tell that Michigan has a good team. and 2. I want one of those helmets. And a hockey jersey. But mostly the helmet.

Anyway, Michigan will go in to Denver as the #1 overall seed and try to win their 10th National Championship, their first since the 1997-1998 season. Team hotties after the jump. Go Blue!

NCAA Frozen Four: Notre Dame

The Other Final Four was decided yesterday, as Michigan, Notre Dame, North Dakota and Boston College punched their tickets to Denver. While watching bball, I also managed to catch two Miami OH games because my friend CJ went there for undergrad. I was his designated high-fiver for when something good happened. Anyway, watching so much hockey (hey, two games in two days qualifies as “so much” for this girl) inspired me to do a Hockey Hottie feature for each team. Today is Notre Dame.

Hockey is Just Alright With Me

So tonight I went to my first hockey game. Notre Dame’s team is doing pretty well this year (I hear they’re ranked #1) and tonight they hosted the Bulldogs of Ferris State. Some of my dorm girls were going, so I thought I’d check it out. It turns out that hockey is pretty fun in person. It’s a very fluid sport; the smooth way the men move around the ice is really a sight to see. It’s also a very violent sport; a fight broke out with 6 minutes to go in the first period that sent 4 guys to the penalty box. The dichotomy between the smooth and the rough is actually kind of cool. I feel like hockey may go the way of golf and soccer. For more explanation and pictures, follow me… Continue reading
