The Year Of Living Dangerously-Grand Forks Style

(left) When he's not letting 80 foot slap shots from the red-line trickle into the net or getting punched by a UND football player, Sioux netminder Philippe Lamoureux is a pretty good goaltender

Its been a roller coaster year for your North Dakota Fightin' Sioux, who roll into Magness Arena this weekend. In just over a year they've been in and out of jail more times than Lindsay Lohan on a bender. Luckily Coach Hakstol seemed to get the team under control last season when he made the unusual move of having the Chief of Police in Grand Forks speak to the team (UND went 9-3-3 after Chief Packett's "Come To Jesus" meeting).

The bad news is that although team doesn't seem to be getting arrested this season, they're not doing so well on the ice. After a split against Minnesota Duluth last weekend (the Saturday night game winning goal was launched from center ice and inexplicably bounced past goaltender Lamoureux), the Sioux stand 4-4-0 in WCHA play.

Needless to say Coach Hak wasn't too impressed with the effort and ordered an extraordinary Sunday practice. "The pucks stayed in the bag" as they say in hockey and UND was forced to skate "Herbies" (windsprints on ice, not fun especially if you're hungover hockey player). Luckily LetsGoDU was able to access to the YouTube video of practice.

FKDU, hey troll you might want to get your schools right, that was C.C. although you were in the same state, DU is in a different city, Denver. C.C. is in the springs. Must be an NDSU student.

Funny how Sioux fans insult their own fans. I think I know fkdu too.

DU players couldn't dress as black people because Mike Handza would have beaten them up (at least last year), or at least just made comments in bad taste at them, just as tDarkness
