Twins Fans Sound off About UND Hockey Being Honored at Sunday's Game

Yesterday, the UND hockey team announced that the Minnesota Twins will honor the 2015-16 UND Hockey team with a pre-game ceremony that will begin at approximately 12:45 p.m. CT on Sunday, May 22, 2016.

The event in question will feature a video celebrating the Fighting Hawks’ national championship run. Each player will be introduced on the stadium video board and UND head coach Brad Berry will throw the ceremonial first pitch.

Apparently, some Twins fans are butt hurt about UND Hockey team being honored at a Twins games. God forbid that happen right. Twins president and UND Alum Dave St. Peter took to Twitter to retort their tweets. Let's say, St. Peter is good at Twitter.




Some Gopher fans just don't get it. A fair number of UND's hockey team comes from Minnesota. Last time I checked, Minnesota was just across the Red River. Also, the Twins aren't just Minnesota's team.

    1. You're right, it could be worse. I just found it hilarious.

  2. I think it's a good business promotion. There are plenty of Sioux fans in Minneapolis plus there are more that travel to the games. If I were a die hard Gopher fan I'd probably skip that night.

    I think there's some serious irony though in that the Gopher fans seem to be fine with the horrible record on the field but upset that the Sioux will be honored. It's like losing doesn't matter as long as it's all Minnesota players or something.
