Also most people don't consider Shattuck to be a Minnesota HS since they play other major midget programs instead of Minnesota high schools.

Should just get HFBoards to tweak the word filter to automatically replace "Minny" with "Minnesota".

I mean if the Sabres can do it to get people to spell their name a certain way, why cant we do it to get people to stop referring to our state as a ****ing disney character?

You don't play at Shatuick St. Mary's unless you're a pretty gifted hockey player, that's a good sign to me. Lots of years to let him develop too, good.

There's a reason why a Buffalo fan is the big kahuna admin.

On their top teams, sure. Draeger being one of those gifted hockey players on the top team.

There is a kid that went to my junior high that transferred to shattuck in 8th grade. He's not that great, but his parents pay for it. I believe he'll be a senior this next year and I'll guess his parents have sunk in tens of thousands of dollars for him to play on the second and third rate hockey teams for his high school career.

Then a friend of mine's little brother goes to shattuck but because his parents pay enough he gets to play, really has no business being there though.

Oh yes, Draeger did. He is a very gifted player. I was just correcting you when you said that Shattuck players are all gifted. That isn't always the case, as they can clearly be bought.

Seriously dude, calling residents of Edina Cake Eaters is in our blood. It's so ingrained here, it even got to the big screen in The Mighty Ducks movie!

You're out of your mind if you take offense! Even those from Edina embrace the term!

Precisely....Each season the Edina HS Girls Hockey team hosts a tourney called the "Cake Eater Classic".

So you don't even remotely understand what a cake eater is, or why, therefore you're going to deliberately troll the rest of the board? As if you weren't already on enough people's ignore list...

TSK is from Texas and is complaining about something accepted all over the State of Minnesota about a suburb in Minnesota that also accepts it.

Could his griping be any more out of place?
