Hi there. I’m not use to asking for assistance so I apologize in advance. I know everyone is struggling during these times. I’m 21 years old and live with my mother after moving in to help support her. she’s approaching (or more or less past) retirement age but lives paycheck to paycheck: so I help with rent and utilities. However working in the casino industry I’m currently laid off until the earliest of the end of April. My mom is still working in nursing as an essential worker but with our apartment and my lack of income were already behind on rent. We have $550 paid of $795. I know that evictions are frozen right now however a few years back we were homeless because my mom fell in a hole after knee replacement surgery - she’s such a hard worker and I don’t want to see her get behind because I can’t work and provide my part. I’m greatful for anyone that may be able to provide assistance - if it’s any consolation as an appreciation I can make homemade King of The Hill novelty items such as pocket sand, plush toys, etc in the meantime for you while waiting for my stimulus to pay you back! Thanks so much. I really do appreciate it.
One of the most underrated bands around and definitely one of the most over looked albums from 1998. Vinyl reissue soon to be announced as well.

Hello fellow colossal compatriots! My name is Travis Nelson and I'm a stand-up comedian from Seattle. At 6'9", I also stand in solidarity with you and your lack of legroom. I've missed a few tall meet-ups because I travel so often. But then I thought, why not bring the meet-up with me?! I will be touring this summer and I thought it would be fun to try and do a tall meet-up at some of my shows! So far my tour schedule is: June 15 at Parlor Live Comedy Club, Bellevue WA June 16-18 at Spokane Comedy Club, Spokane WA June 23-26 at Zanies Comedy Club (downtown), Chicago IL June 30-July 2 at Funny Bone Comedy Club, Omaha NE July 8-9 at Snickerz Comedy Bar, Fort Wayne IN July 15-16 at The Main Hangar Restaurant, Decatur IL July 22-23 at Goonie's Comedy Club, Rochester MN July 27-30 at Zanies Comedy Club, Rosemont IL August 4 at the Kewadin Casino, Sault Ste. Marie MI August 5 at Minong Comedy Club, Minong WI August 6 at the Dubh Linn Irish Brew Pub, Duluth MN August 11-13 at Cozzy's Comedy Club, Newport News VA (Tentatively) August 19-20 Jokers Comedy Club, Indianapolis IN If you live in any of those areas, hit me up and buy your tickets! I'm currently working on more dates and shows in between the ones I've got, so if you want to do a tall meet-up or just a comedy show in your town PM me! I’m looking at you, Montana/North Dakota/Kentucky/West Virginia! Working the road can be exhausting, and it's always nice to break the monotony :) Also, if you're in the Seattle area, you can catch me at the Seattle Comedy Underground May 12-14. Also, also, I have a meager twitter existence @travisisjoking. Oh, and here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJ5xCUP-910
[60 Teams, 60 Days] Lake Superior State University Lakers
Lake Superior State University (LSSU/Lake State) Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) Founded: 1946 Location: Sault Ste. Marie, MI Total Enrollment: 2600 Total Attendance: 4000 (2000 Avg) Nickname: Lakers - LSSU's teams carry the nickname of Laker due in part to the school's name and the proximity to Lake Superior. Before being called the Lakers, they were nicknamed the Hornets. Live Mascot: The live mascot for the Lakers is Seamore the Sea Duck. Seamore recently underwent a redesign two years ago to become the above version. With the redesign he became the sole mascot of the Lakers. Before Seamore was a dark blue bird and was often accompanied by a sailor mascot named Foghorn. Many students and alumni prefer the older design of Seamore but have been accepting of the new look. Band: LSSU Pep Band - The LSSU Pep Band primary function is playing songs at LSSU Hockey games. Being a smaller school the Pep Band is not very large and is completely student ran. The Pep Band exists as a student organization and is not part of any academic program. They provide entertainment primarily to the students attending as they are located above the student section of the arena. Fight Song: The LSSU Fight song goes as follows:
We’re gonna rise up for old gold and blue We’re gonna show our Laker pride Take your mighty wins in stride We’ve the power on our side We’re gonna fight, fight on to victory We’re gonna win this game tonight We have the spirit in our team So go fight, you Lakers, win. GO Go You Lakers Fight GO FIGHT WIN FIGHT FIGHT You Lakers Win GO FIGHT WIN
To be honest, nobody sings the fight song's lyrics. In my 4 years of attendance I never heard anyone sing them and did not know there were any lyrics until I began researching for this article. Most Lakers only know the Fight Song by the rhythm and hearing it played by the Pep Band after a goal. Arena:Taffy Abel Arena - The Taffy Abel Arena is part of the Norris Center Athletic Complex which houses all indoor Lake State Athletics. It was built in 1976 and was last renovated last in 1995. It was named after Clarence "Taffy" Abel who is an American Hockey player born in Sault Ste Marie, MI. The Taffy Abel has a capacity of 4,000 seats. It also holds the distinction of being the only arena in the United States that has a capacity higher than the total enrollment of the school it services. Town Information: Sault Ste. Marie, MI (aka The Soo) is a smaller college town with a population of about 15,000. It is on the border of Michigan's Upper Peninsula(UP) and Canada. Across the border is the much larger town of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario which has a population of about 75,000. The main attractions for The Soo include the Soo Locks, A variety of nature trails/parks, Kewadin Casino, The Soo Eagles (NAHL), Soo Thunderbirds(NOJHL) and the Soo Greyhounds (OHL) (The Greyhounds even let this scrub play for them). First Season: 15-5-0 All-time Record: 900–736–146 Championships: NCAA 3 (1988, 1992 and 1994), NAIA 2 (1972, 1974) Frozen Four Appearances: 4 (1988, 1992, 1993, 1994) Tournament Appearances: NCAA 10 (1985, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996), NAIA 6 (1968, 1969, 1970, 1972, 1973, 1974) Conference Titles:
Conference Regular Season Champions: 1973–74, 1987–88, 1990–91, 1995–96
Rivals Northern Michigan University(NMU) - Being the closest NCAA hockey program and one of the 3 in the UP, NMU is a natural rival for the Lakers. Michigan Technological University(MI Tech) - Being another UP university with a NCAA hockey program, MI Tech makes another natural rival. LSSU was originally an offshoot of MI Tech and is considered by many to be it's little sibling school. I will note that while NMU and Tech are LSSU's main rivals there have not been many big rivalry moments in the last few seasons leading to a more laid back rivalry. 2014-2015 Season Record: 8-28-2 (Conference 7-20-1) Coach: Damon Whitten(1st Year) [2014-2015 Roster](Link) Season Summary: It was a rough first year for Coach Whitten. After having a good chunk of the previous roster either signing with a AHL/NHL team or graduating out of the program(Including all 3 goaltenders), the fresh Laker team did not fair well this season. The players showed flashes of brilliance but could not put together the pieces to come out on top most nights. The relatively you team will hopefully have time to grow together and build team chemistry for the following seasons. While the team did make their first appearance in the WCHA tournament since joining last year, they were quickly defeated by the tournament's eventual champions Minnesota State. 2015-2016 Season [Schedule](Link) Drafted Players on Roster: Being a small school with a currently less than successful program it should not be shocking to many that there are no currently drafted players playing on the Lakers. Most players that are picked up from the team are done so after the draft as a signing and do not stick around at LSSU. Key Games Oct. 17 Northern Michigan This is the home opener against one of the rival UP schools so it will set the tone for the year. Dec. 11/12 Michigan Tech The Lakers double header against their other UP rival will be a test for the players. Tech is coming off a phenomenal season and it will be interesting to see how LSSU stacks up. Players to Watch ** Gordon Defiel - G - So** It's proving time for Gordie going into his sophomore season at LSSU. The team will need big plays by him to improve from last year's setbacks. ** Bryce Schmitt - F - Sr** Coming in second last season on the team in points, Bryce enters his senior season with the Lakers. He will be looked to for production and leadership by the team. ** Eric Drapluk - D - Sr** Drapluk lead the D corps for the Lakers last year coming in 3rd overall in points for the team. Another senior that will be looked to lead this team in a positive direction. (LSSU’s) History Greatest Players: Doug Weight - Center Brian Rolston - Left Wing Jim Dowd - Center Honorable Mention: Kellan Lain who made his NHL debut January 18, 2014 for the Canucks and was involved in a full-line brawl setting an NHL record for fastest fight to start a career and was ejected from the game. Greatest Coaches:
Jeff Jackson, 182–52–25: 6 Years
Ron Mason, 129–47–8: 7 Years
Frank Anzalone, 223–205–41: 11 Years

Closing School and City Information City Population: 15,000 School History Founded as Soo Tech in 1946 as a satellite school of Michigan Tech. Lake State eventually became its own entity known as Lake Superior State College in 1966 and officially split from tech in 1970. They were granted university status in 1987. Traditions Hoholik Victory Bell: After any Laker Hockey Victory the team ditches their skates and runs outside the arena to ring the victory bell surrounded by the fans. The tradition started in the early 1980's. A new bell was installed after the original was heavily damaged following the celebration of the 1992 NCAA Championship. Local Dining:
West Pier is a drive-in burger joint that is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. West Pier has the best burger I have ever eaten and is pretty reasonably priced for a small operation. Sadly they are only open for part of the year and only accept cash.
Clydes is West Pier's main competition and the cause of a town rivalry for burgers. Also a small drive-in burger joint that is only open part of the year, Clydes is no slouch when it comes to their food. While I personally prefer West Pier, Clydes is a great second choice.
The Antlers is a small restaurant located in The Soo that features a wide variety of wild game. From bison to beef, chicken to ostrich, there is always something good to try at The Antlers.
Random Trivia: Men's Hockey is the only D1 sport at LSSU. LSSU's Main Campus is built on an old fort named Fort Brady. Lake State was mentioned on the Colbert Report once for banishing the work Truthiness. Academics Big programs for LSSU include Nursing, Fire Science, Fisheries & Wildlife, and Business. Final Thoughts: This was a really good way to look back at my time as a Laker and is bringing up many memories from watching my team play. I only wish I had found out about this sooner so I would have a bit longer to work on my article. Thanks to JohnDoeMonopoly for making this all possible.
