Christmas Wishes for 2007

Tom Shatel of the Omaha World-Herald started this a few years back, but I'll add my own version.

Bo Pelini, Barney Cotton, Marvin Sanders, and Ron Brown: Making the most of your second chance.

Nebraska defensive players: The lightning that hit the 2003 Blackshirts

LSU: A national championship.

Husker Nation: Unity.

Bill Callahan: An NFL offensive coordinator position

Turner Gill: A bowl game for the Buffalo Bulls.

Kansas City Chiefs fans: Making good use of their very early draft picks.

Chicago Cubs fans: Sam Zell loses control of the Cubs before he can sell naming rights to Wrigley Field. Bonus: $48 million turns out to be a bargain for Kosuke Fukudome.

Creighton Bluejay basketball fans: Another MVC championship.

Nebraska basketball fans: Some nice upsets at home, a 20 win season, and an NCAA tournament bid.

Bratjay Fans: Nebraska playing in the NCAA tournament at the Qwest Center.

Mike Kemp: A 2006-style hot streak in the new year.

UNO hockey fans: Getting to worry about squeezing in 2nd round CCHA playoff games around the Bruce Springsteen show.

Omaha: A 20 year commitment from the NCAA for a new downtown ballpark for the College World-Series.

To all of you: Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous new year.
