Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to Ryan Turek. Charges were filed and your name wasn't on the list, yeah. In fact, there were no Spartan Icers on the list.

Merry Christmas to David Booth. Despite missing 7 games to injuries you're keeping pace with Zetterberg, Selanne, Datsyuk, Spezza, Lecavalier and a host of others in goals.

Merry Christmas to Tim Kennedy. Finally getting that call-up that makes leaving school early worth it.

Most of all, Merry Christmas to Spartan fans. After a disastrous first half, the Spartans found a way to win against one of the best in the West. Schepke and Lerg had an outstanding game. The team did a great job of fending off the Sioux's desperation flurry at the end of the game. They have a chance to bring home another GLI Championship and make the second half interesting for the rest of the CCHA. Good job guys! A little bench trimming, home cooking and a short break seems to be just what the doctor ordered.

If I'm not mistaken, and I rarely am, the last time State lost to the US Development Team and won the GLI, they also won the NCAA Championship. If the wicked weasels find a way to beat Spartans, as unlikely as that seems, we can forget the last part of that statement.
