WCH Weekend Preview

Thursday Night Pre-Game Movie: Hudsucker Proxy. Does this count as a holiday movie? Maybe? Kinda sorta? I don't know. At any rate, it's a good flick.

Friday Afternoon Pre-Game Song: Would? by Alice in Chains. For a song that came out 15 years ago, it still gets a lot of play on Twin Cities radio. They're like the Sheryl Crow of alternative rock.

Games I'd Want to See If I Had Unlimited Funds
: Colorado College at St. Cloud. But really only for the morbid fascination to see what can go wrong next for St. Cloud.

Controversial Play That a WCHA Official Will Probably Screw-Up
: The sky is the limit. WCHA officials care about goaltender interference like George Bush cares about black people.

Cliche Arena Song of the Week:
: Smoke on the Water. It's good to know that there are a still few heroes out there than can play this song on a fake guitar.

Picks to Click

Last week: Ryan Jones had a hat trick. The rest is mere trivia

Forward: Tyler Bozak, Denver
Defenseman: Jack Hillen, Colorado College
Goalie: Michael-Lee Teslak, Michigan Tech

Pre/Post-Game Meal of the Week:
Pizza Hut Double Deep Pizza. I heartily endorse this event or product.

Arena Food of the Week:
Jelly Beans. Not the gross gigantic ones either. I mean the gourmet stuff with the weird flavors. Technically you have to smuggle these in, but they're far superior to any arena concession candy. I'm pretty sure whoever came up with the idea of a popcorn-flavored jelly bean should have won a Nobel Prize. I used to really like the Haribo gummy bears, until I found out they were made by Nazis. Though to be honest, I always suspected it. Who else would put those disgusting yellow gummy bears in there?

Wisdom of Michael Scott:
"Cage matches? Yeah, they work. How could they not work? If they didn't work, everybody would still be in the cage"
