Поздравления Сезона!

The Fan Club exec would like to wish all the Ulanov fans out there the happiest of holidays! It has been just over a year since his delightful 2 goal game and it's a memory we will surely cherish in our hearts forever.

(If the titles of this post does not translate into "Season's greetings," then I apologize and I hope it's not something offensive)

I'll have an Eggnov. With Vodka.

After a lengthy drunken discussion following the consumption of many alcoholic drinks and jellos, the fan club decided that Igor's new name shall be Eggnov, in celebration of the holiday spirit. And of course, one simply can not drink a Russian drink with rum. One must drink said russian drink with Vodka. Russian Vodka. Preferably of the Krasnokamsk variety. God I miss him.

How did this happen?

Someone has linked to us in the Wikipedia article on Ulanov. We feel honoured.

I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of those evil eyes...

Well Ulanov hasn't posted any minutes in penalty box, or any points on the board in the last two games. But, it seems, Yaroslavl is going the way of the current Edmonton Oilers. Winning like it's nobody's business, that is! They took on Novosibirsk (how's the agriculture situation?) Siberia on 6 December and beat the 4-3. Two days later, they defeated the Metallurgist by a score of 3-1. Yaroslavl's next game isn't until the 21st, when they'll go on the road to face Cherepovets. We'll try to keep you occupied until then.

Club Mangler: Roughing people up since 28 November

Somebody found this site by searching for "club mangler." That brought me back to a previous version of the Wikipedia article on Ulanov.

Yaroslavl ended its three game losing streak with a tie at home against Tractor Chelyabinsk, with a score of 1-1. Ulanov served two minutes in the penalty box for "roughness (fight)." The team then went back on the road to deliver a sound shut out spanking to Moscow Tsska (?) on 1 December with a score of 3-0. Nothing on the Ulanov front for that game. Two days later, Yaroslavl visited Chekhov Hero for a 2-2 tie. Ulanov got another two minutes for "roughness (fight)." Привлекательный (I hope that's the right word)!

Maybe somebody out there can confirm this...

...but it appeared that at last night's game against Columbus, which was a travesty by-the-way, that the guy who won the "Sirius dance-off" was wearing a t-shirt with the number 55 on his back. Now, coincidence, or are there a growing number of us Ulanovites out there, and we want our voice to be heard? I think we all know the answer to that one.
