Looks like the Irish have a very good hockey team. The took a 4-1 lead into the final few minutes of the game and even scored a short-handed goal. The Gophers made it interesting with a pair of goals in the last couple minutes but the Irish held on for a 4-3 win.
In case anyone checks this blog, the Irish played Minnesota last week at the annual hall of fame game. Here are a few crappy cell phone shots from that game. Needless to say I had somewhat divided loyalty but I did wear my ND hat and was glad to see the Irish come away with a win.

at a gas station after a duck hunt the attendant says, "are you a hunter?" (I have dogs, a cased shotgun, decoys and ducks in the truck).
my reply "just damn you must be psychic"
answer, "no sir, you have dog snot on your windows and feathers in your hair."
at the same station a girl hears me talk and asks me where I'm from (keep in mind this is Boondoggle, MN). I tell her Georgia. Her answer:
"Oh Yah, say something Southern."
(giggling) "oh, how cute!"

The largest union’s meeting opened here on Saturday to a drumbeat of heated rhetoric, with several speakers calling for Mr. Duncan’s resignation, hooting delegates voting for a resolution criticizing federal programs for “undermining public education,” and the union’s president summing up 18 months of Obama education policies by saying, “This is not the change I hoped for.”
“Today our members face the most anti-educator, anti-union, anti-student environment I have ever experienced,” Dennis Van Roekel, president of the union, the National Education Association, told thousands of members gathered at the convention center here.
