Mailbag Friday, 4/1

It's a new month, spring is in the air, and your superiors have decided to turn over a new leaf. Perhaps it's the impending crack of the bat signalling the new baseball season that has lightened our mood, or maybe it's just that we've come across lately as a bit smug or slightly arrogant. Regardless, with today being the day you look forward to most, Pinhead Nation's Mailbag Friday, the people you wish you were are taking a "kinder and more gentle" approach to our loyal fans who wish to be honored by asking your idols a question.

As always, you can send your question or comment to mailbag@pinheadnation.com and if you're fortunate, we'll answer your inquiry and do our best to address your meager concern. So without further adieu, here's this week's mailbag.

Q - Mike B.(Orono, ME). Watching "America's Team" look like a JV team against the Sioux last weekend just made my day. The only regret is they didn't give up ten goals.

A - Mike, thank you for your concerns about the plight of the Boston College hockey program. Like you, we were disappointed that America's Team's season came to a sudden halt at the hands of North Dakota. Sorry to hear that Maine lost to Minnesota, we were really rooting for them to pull it off. Trust us, no one was more surprised than the 'Nation to see Maine coach Tim Whitehead unable to outcoach Minnesota's Don Lucia. Your superiors felt awful for Maine fans and we're sure that next year the Blackbears can pull it together and win another national championship. Good luck with your studies, too. We know how difficult the curriculum is at U of Maine and admire your efforts to succeed at such a quality institution.


Though hockey season over in Maine, there are still many wonderous summertime activities awaiting residents of "Vacation-Land".

Q - Adam C. (Lidgerwood, ND). I assume you Pinhead Nation guys will be rooting for the Fighting Sioux to win it all now. Go Sioux!

A - Hi Adam, thanks for checking in. Due to prior contractual arrangements, the 'Nation will be rooting for Minnesota. We apologize, but as in the business world, verbal agreements cannot be broken. Although we can't support your Sioux next week, your superiors are considering buying some property in North Dakota soon. With so much to do in North Dakota, hiking, scrapbooking, wandering in the wilderness, where else would we want to go for a quick getaway. If there is a more cosmopolitan place with more interesting people than North Dakota, we'd like to know where it is.


Is there anyone who wouldn't want to spend every day with these North Dakota folks? Not us. Not us, indeed.

Q - Jesse M. (Madison, WI). Hi Pinheads. I don't post on the USCHO.com site, but being a Badger fan, I read it often. I enjoy reading what darin, MAV, and SteveF write (I assume you guys are Pinhead Nation) but I just saw you were all suspended again. Why are you people always getting suspended?

A - Jesse, like many moderated websites, the word of the "site adminstrator" is law. Although hockey is a sport designed to be entertaining, the USCHO board admin has chosen to squelch anyone rooting for America's Team who dares to deviate from their punctilious set of commandments. Your superiors appreciate the efforts of the USCHO administrators for the yeoman's work they do. Just knowing they can patrol thousands of posts while keeping abreast of every rumor and tidbit pertaining to next season's Battlestar Galactica and Babylon 5 series' is astounding. All this without the ability to rely on female companionship for assistance. Again, in the spirit of "turning the other cheek", your superiors simply say "our bad" and say how much we respect the USCHO board administration.


With an iron fist, used for maintaining order and self-gratification, the USCHO admin ensures the trains surrounding USCHO-land always run on time

That's going to do it for this week's Pinhead Nation mailbag. Remember, email your superiors whatever is on your mind and we may just make your weekend by responding to you.

Collar Up.

Hey Pinheads, BC ZamboniGuy Cult from USCHO.com here. It's too bad that the fascists at USCHO treat you guys so unfairly, but it must be a sure sign that the truth is getting out there, and it hurts them. Hope to see you guys posting again, even if it's under new handles. Collar up!
