The Frozen Four faces off this afternoon at 3:00 with the Black Bears of the University of Maine taking on the Spartans of Michigan State. I have a word of advice for the Spartans, as well as Eagles of Boston College and the Fighting Sioux of North Dakota:
DO NOT EVEN BOTHER SHOWING UP ON THE ICE, BECAUSE IF YOU DO, THERE IS GOING TO BE SOME SERIOUS KICKING OF YOUR BEHINDS! THE BLACK BEARS DO NOT CHEW YOU UP AND SPIT YOU OUT! THEY CHEW YOU UP, SWALLOW YOU, DIGEST YOU, AND . . .!
Well, you get the picture. In all seriousness, although my colors are rather spectacularly nailed to the mast, best of luck to all. And to any non-Maine fans out there – you are hereby granted an indulgence to talk trash in this thread here if you wish.
