    I am a bit upset with my brother’s family. He wanted to buy me Grinch footie PJs as part of my X-mas present; the rest of them all thought it was silly. But that was the fucking point – Grinch covered footie PJs for adults? Awesome.

    @Sarah, Proud and Tall: I agree. He did tell me where to find them. I may buy them for myself – just to have them. I don’t even like socks; I am not sure how footie PJs would work for me. But owning them seems worthwhile.

    FTFY, and, yes, I totes couldn’t agree more! I mean, my God, man, with one front-page post coming right after another, I never know which one to post in! Where will all my pithy wisdom receive the most eyeballs? What if I comment in the wrong thread, the thread where it turns out the losers are, and the folks in the cool-kids thread never read my insightful missives? Or, what if I post a comment in the cool-kids’ thread, but then moments later another front-pager posts something the cook kids like even better, and so my post in the first cool-kids’ thread becomes the last post, sight unseen?

    @Tissue Thin Pseudonym (JMN):

    Was at the game – the Badgers played very hard, not as well as the championship game last spring but better than any team the Gophers have played this year. They gave it everything, it just was not good enough.

    Whats scary about this Gopher team is that they have not been really challenged this year & have played a couple of top 10 teams along with teams for whom beating the Gopher is their reason for breathing. Plus they are a young team yet.

    The numbers are stunning: they are 17-0, they were behind in one game . . . for 9 seconds. They have the two leading scorers in the nation on the team & have outscored opponents 102-11, although their penalty kill is only 2nd best in the nation they have 7 short-handed goals, they lead the nation in shutouts & their goal leads the nation in save percentage.

    We will be there for the second game against Wisc. this afternoon. It will be very interesting to see how the Badgers react – they took going down 2-0 in the second period yesterday badly & it cost them the third goal. To their credit they picked it up particularly in the 3rd.
