M-I-N-N-E-S-O-T-A!

Ski-U-Mah, motherfuckers!

It's not quite the same listening on 'CCO (fuck you, Comcast!), but dammit, it's fucking good enough.

Also, who do I have to blow to get a highlight on ESPN or ESPN2?

Ski-U-mah? I am new to the state so maybe that's why I do not know what this means.

Oh, people who have lived here forever are unsure as to what Ski-U-Mah means. The origins are sketchy, but thanks to the Interwebs, I can point you to a few different sources of information:

Minnesota Marching Band.

Wiki.

KARE 11's "I've Been Wondering".

Also, they're already comparing Hoffarber's shot to the infamous Christian Laettner shot from the 1992 tournament. That thing almost got me kicked out of a hotel.

Wow, thanks. Now I can fake being a Minnesotan, if only I had the accent, a lack of a temper and a desire for pickled herring.

That shot was amazing. More impressive than Laetner because 1. Laetner had time to gear up for a shot and Hoffarber just sort of shot-put it up there and 2. Hoffarber's history of this silliness.

As for who you have to blow, well--my ESPN has been showing the shot on continuous loop for the last 20 minutes. If you hurry, you may just barely miss the last highlight.

I mean, just barely catch the last highlight. Ha, ha, ha. I'm certainly not lying just to get a blowjob. I'm better than that.

Yep. Totally not lying. It's a damn amazing shot, though. You couple it with the silliness of the last minute in general (missed free throws rebounded, and such) and it is certainly worth at least a handjob.

I say that from a detached, impartial perspective.

Before? When I said I was better than that?

I'm not.

Glad to help, Stoopidnoodle. You'll fit in just fine, especially since some of us totally have tempers and have never gotten close enough to even smell pickled herring.

Big Blue Monkey: I know. (Sorry 'bout your Hoyas.)

Nicely done, Brian. Nicely done. Too bad they couldn't have finally pulled one out against those fucking Illini.
