Very entertaining.
Thanks for putting in the time and keep up the great work.
Comments/Questions: (all in good fun)
1) If Maple Grove did not have an olympic sheet, would Danny go see at least 5 games a year there?
2) Tony, why do you always go against the grain? Andover in HDM?, seriously?
3) Why do I get the impression Karl is taking another bite of Captain Crunch when the topic veers away from Duluth East?
4) Mr. Koster- please stay away from Runza. They call them "Run-za" for a reason!

Your Captain Crunch take Karl was so spot on....lol.

First, I hate taking the same pick as the other three (I went last). That said, I like Andover. I said they would be undefeated going into HDM (and got laughed at by the other two). Picking an undefeated team to win isn't exactly going out on a limb (IMO).

Thanks for listening. Today's show was really, really good. Mike's take on Dave Snuggerud was a 10/10. Our snob segment on a great state tourney was fresh as well.

Hey now, at least I wasn't the one who spent ten minutes gushing about how much he loves East's breezers in this show! :lol: :lol:

That was one of the more fun shows we've ever done. Think I'll follow it up with another bowl of Captain Crunch.

Agreed Karl. We had some good laughs (the Jefferson poison, East assistant coach, STA not being a team 2 out of 3 of us wouldn't like to see at the X). Mike Koster was a great guest. Had some fun with it. Almost as good as Ryder (if that is possible).

Hey hey I have seen MG 3 times already but I think I see less of them due to their conference schedule than anything else. Now also slow down a cheese Runza with spicy ranch can't be beat!

It just warms my heart & makes me smirk...when nearly 3 years later, Danny & Tony still lament about Anoka sneaking into the tourney in 2016 (while Farmington & Burnsville receive no noteriaty at all)...but please don’t compare that team to the young group Centennial has this year or BB led Champlin Park. For the record, that 2016 Anoka team split with Blaine, beat MG 2 of 3, including in the section final...and CRUSHED the Cougars when it mattered 6-2 ☝️ Karl being the intellectual, knew better than joining in, since he remembered 2015 when the Tornadoes clipped the Hounds 5-3, precipitating MR’s switch to a trap style (the very next game) tying ER...and that style change ultimately got them to the State Finals...and btw...that 2015 Anoka team also swept MG & beat & tied State Tourney bound Blaine 😉 [-X :lol:

Gonna take a lot longer than 3 years for me to stop lamenting that one 59!!! So I guess your heart will be warm for a while.

Can't believe we haven't taken more flak for our "ideal" state tourney takes. Felt like we were ripe for some barbs, but I guess not???

The discussion regarding Buffalo and STMA moving to the Lake reminded me of the olden days when the Lake Conference stretched all the way from Osseo to Rosemount. Also, the Tri-Metro at that time spanned from Mound Westonka to Mahtomedi and Farmington. I’m sure the outstate people scoff at these distances, but those were some seriously unpleasant road trips during rush hours.

I don’t know if we talked necessary predictions but as I remember these are our snooty preferences:

1AA – Anyone the doesn’t start with the word Lakeville
2AA – Tonka since they have been #1 all season and you want #1 in state if possible
3AA – I happen to say STA but my co-hosts do not agree with that
4AA – WBL just the whole storyline and they bring a great crowd for a L
5AA – Either Blaine or Maple Grove both schools have great squads
6AA – Edina because you need Edina in the tourney otherwise it is Schwan’s cup silver
7AA – East because it is just something to see when they play at state
8AA – Roseau….

I'm as bored with East as I am with Moorhead. I'd much rather see Andover, Cloquet, Elk River, etc.

Yea C-E-C would be nice but I would have to listen to a certain East alum's complain for 4 days straight about it :lol:

While occasionally I like an upset...I also like to see the better teams reach Xcel, which is why, at least in 2019, I’d like to see Andover reach their 1st State Tourney, despite not wearing orange or purple jerseys or red pants 😉☝️

I thought the emoticon was a giveaway? It was tongue-in-cheek. I'm a Tonka guy so less Edina = more and been there done that when it comes to DE. :wink:
