11. Hell, we have that in North Dakota, too...
Edited on Thu May-06-04 07:50 PM by northwest
UND Fighting Sioux
Fargo-Moorhead Jets (NAHL)
Bismarck Bobcats (NAHL)

The difference is that we have a better college team. :)

(And even though I'm an NDSU student, and UND is our biggest rival, I like to root for UND hockey, because NDSU has no hockey team, and I need my college hockey fix)

I have lived here for less than a year but it is really growing on me. I've met a lot of really great people even though I live in the birthplace of Joe McCarthy and the john Birch Society (sorry to bring up bad things -- but, hey, they're both dead)
