One-Timers (Jan. 4)

January 4, 2010

I’ll start off with a couple stories about members of the Fighting Irish hockey team.

First up is this story about Nick Condon and his journey from high school to the NAHL and finally to NCAA hockey. Many said that he was too small to play college hockey, but he continues to prove his critics wrong. [Wausau Daily Herald]

Here’s an article from Notre Dame Magazine about Irish coach, Jeff Jackson. This article gives some insight into Jackson’s background and includes an interesting anecdote about the picture frames he keeps in his office. [Notre Dame Magazine]

Six former members of the USHL have made the AHL all-star team. This includes former Ice defenseman, John Carlson. []

John Lachmann takes a look at Shane Berschbach, Max Cook and Alex Wideman all of whom will be playing for the Miami University Redhawks next season. []

Indianapolis’ own Jack Johnson has made the USA Men’s Hockey team. Not sure if he is the first Hoosier to play on this team, but we’re proud of you. [USA Hockey]

Now this story doesn’t really have to do with hockey, but it includes it while talking about an event that occurred in Indiana. Many a stupid thing has been said about the Colts since they decided to rest their starters. Although this one takes the cake:

I have to equate what Indy did yesterday to the 1980 US Hockey (eventual gold medal winners) walking away from the challenge of playing the vaunted Soviet Union team in the medal round at Lake Placid.

You see, before that historic game that lives forever in sports lore, many felt the young US team had zero chance given that just a short period before the Olympics, the Soviets had soundly beaten the US upstarts…boy I am glad Herb Brooks never listened to the naysayers and told his players to fight with all of their might.


Feel free to give this living idiot a piece of your mind. [Bleacher Report]
