Whiskey and Girl Scout Cookies: Oh Yes

+

We've often remarked that this is a boubon blog with a Gophers problem. It's in this spirit (pun intended) that I present to you this bit of important information...how to properly pair Girl Scout cookies and whiskey. Here's a sample:

For the top-selling Girl Scout Cookie in America, we had to get it right. Happily, the small batch Basil Hayden’s has a slight peppermint taste that pairs wonderfully with the classic chocolate mint confection.

Enjoy!

Rachel Banham to return to Gophers WBB for 2015-16 Season!

2

Gopher Women's Basketball Senior Rachel Banham announced today that she has been granted a medical hardship waiver and will return to the Gopher team for a second shot at her senior season in 2015-16. Banham tore her ACL in December in a game at North Dakota. Banham was averaging 20 points and five assists per game prior to her injury. She is just 107 points short of Lindsey Whalen's career scoring record of 2,285 points and should break that within her first five games next season The Gopher team that has been ranked this season will now only lose senior Shae Kelly from the roster for the 2015-16 season. This will be one special team to watch next year!

Vinni Lettieri suspended for Friday Night's Game vs Mankato

2

The Big Ten suspended Gopher forward Vinni Lettieri for one game on Monday afternoon for his role in the line scrap between Minnesota and Wisconsin at the end of Friday night's game. The altercation began when Wisconsin's Eddie Witchow took a run at Minnesota's Leon Bristedt and hit him from behind in the head with an elbow. Several Gopher players came to his defense, and all ten skaters and even Badger goalie Joel Rumpel became involved in the incident. Lettieri was suspended a game for leaving the bench during the incident. Witchow was given an added game to his already one-game suspension which was automatically assessed after receiving a game disqualification for his hit Saturday. Lettieri will miss the Gopher's game against #1 Ranked Minnesota State-Mankato in the North Star Cup Friday night. Look for Ryan Reilly to most likely take his spot in the lineup against the Mavericks. Lettieri will be able to rejoin the Gopher lineup on Saturday in either the third place or Championship game of the North Star cup against either UMD or Bemidji State.

#1 Gopher Wrestlers squeak out a 20-19 win over #9 Illinois

27

The 31 ranked Minnesota Wresting team squeaked out a 20-19 win over #9 Illinois Sunday afternoon at the Sports Pavilion. The Gophers can put this win on the shoulders of #1 ranked Chris Dardenes at 133 pounds who was down 7-1 to #5 Zane Richards of Illinois going into the third period. Dardanes came back in the third and forced at tie at 10 points each and sent the match into overtime. In the OT, Dardanes scored a takedown giving the Gophers a 17-8 edge. The other Dardanes brother, Nick who is ranked #4 at 141 pounds also gained a victory to put Minnesota up 20-8. Illinois scored a major victory and a pinfall in the next two matches, but it would not be enough to overcome the Gophers early edge! The road does not get any easier next Sunday as the #1 Gophers will be in Happy Valley for a duel meet against #6 Penn State.

Goldy Gopher took third place in the mascot competition at the 2015 Universal Cheerleaders Association National Collegiate Championships Friday night in Orlando. Goldy's skit combined with his audition tape was good enough for third place overall. The only two mascots to beat Goldy-- Aubie the Tiger from Auburn who took second and Brutus Buckeye who won the competition. Ohio State is just winning everything these days. He defeated several other B1G mascots including Bucky, Herky and Sparty! Congrats to Goldy who is still first in our hearts!
