I can see this picture now on an anti-Gay Marriage brochure! If we allow Gay Marriage -- inter-species marriages will be next!!!

I am so pleased the Men's team won, especially for the seniors who had such a dreadful and isolated first season as freshmen. Out of adversity springs determination.

Before the picture loaded, I thought this was more American Idol blogging.

I thought it was a stripper in disguise, a very clever stripper I might add

Lucky Bucky!

Living in Minneapolis, having the women's hockey team win the national title at the U of M's home ice, Mariucci, was sweet - and now the men's team make it complete!

The NEW State of Hockey is...Wisconsin.

GO BUCKY!

It's OK. Bucky's probably a girl.

My aunt tells the story of her daughter who, when she was little, happened to be in the vincity when Bucky took off his head. "Mommy", she exlaimed, "Bucky's a girl!", as, indeed, she was.

I know three former bucky's. I am pretty sure that most bucky's are guys.

Ann, since you live in Madison as does Bucky, would you please lift up Bucky's tail and tell me what you see?

Wonder if this Bucky sounds any better than the one on Idol. Wouldn't be hard!

Someone posted this to a forum elsewhere: I watched the UW-Maine game and I must know why the UW fans do something similar to the tomahawk (sp?) chop thing the Atlanta Braves fans do/did.

I don't remember this from my days at UW football games. Does anyone know of this?

Valerie said...

I am a student at UW and went to football and hockey games this year and have never seen anyone do the tomahawk chop that the braves fans do... at least never in the student section.

Also, allegedly the buckeys are usually girls. From what I understand, the boys were showing up drunk to games and causing trouble, so now they prefer girls. Although the skating bucky I think is a guy. Burish had probably started celebrating by this point and wouldn't care anyway...

They (ahem, we, though my student days are long gone) point at the opposing goalie and chant "Sieve, sieve, sieve", after he lets in a goal. My wife won't do it because she's afraid it will hurt the goalie's feelings (which is exactly the point, of course).

It's a hockey thing, though it can be used in many circumstances. The bartender across the street from the Bradley Center was roundly seived by the crowd Saturday night when he dropped a tray of glasses.

Ah, thanks, mike. I vaguely recall that now.
