Big Chill at the Big House Live Blog

If you’re on this site, you’re probably a hockey fan. While others are out enjoying this fine Saturday afternoon, we’re here browsing the internet in search of any news about our favorite team. Maybe you’re even looking for dirt on a rival. I know I do that…

But this post isn’t about the NHL. It’s not about the AHL. It’s about 40 kids playing in front of the biggest hockey crowd in history. It’s about doing what you have to do for the good of the guy next to you. Some of these players will go on to the NHL, but others will be doctors, accountants and lawyers. They’re not playing for money. They’re playing for pride; and no pro contract can ever replace the pride they’ll feel when they leave the Big House knowing they gave it their all as a team.

Bo Schembechler said it best: “The team, the team, the team.”

When Justin Abdelkader scored the National Championship winning goal against Boston College, it was his team that set him up.

When Mike Legg scored his gravity-defying goal in ‘96, it was his team that got him in that position.

I think it’s pretty clear who I’m pulling for, but if not, I’ll say “go blue!” and see if you get it now. But Sparty fans are welcome, too. In fact, I hope there’s a nice mix of fans of both teams as well as a few neutral viewers who just want to be a part of history. So here we go…

110,000 fans.

2 teams.

During the slow-mo replay the FSD commentator says, “Let’s freeze it here.”

Yeah, I caught that.

Amen to that.  Karmic Retribution isn’t nearly repaid for that BS…

I’m just happy today has been smooth so far without any “marring” incidents.  Great day for the Michigan Faithful.  Go Blue!
