Merry Christmas!

Yes, a blatant ripoff of Tom Shatel and his Christmas Wishes....

To Husker fans: A nice Gator Bowl victory, and a good quarterback battle in spring practice.

To Recruitniks: A recruiting class that generates more excitement on the field than on signing day.

Omaha baseball fans: Once the Sarpy County bailout strikes out for the third time in the Legislature, the Royals and MECA finally start negotiating seriously.
(Update: After opening up my morning World-Herald, I see Tom was thinking the exact same thing...)

USA Swimming: A plan to squeeze the 2012 Olympic Swimming Trials into the Qwest Center between the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting and the College World Series.

Doc Sadler: Getting a Big XII-calibre forward or center enrolled at Nebraska.

Mike Kemp: An even stronger second-half of the UNO hockey season, especially with games against Princeton (currently #8 in the country), Miami (currently #2), and Notre Dame (currently #1).

UNO Hockey Fans: Spending February watching the Pairwise rankings, and spending March travelling to Detroit and perhaps Minneapolis.

AJ the HuskerH8r: Recognizing the hypocrisy of "Gabbert living up to the hype".... (Heh heh... seriously... enjoy your retirement!)

The Pelini family: Condolences and prayers.

Josh Freeman: Realization that while you may have NFL talent, you haven't shown it on the field.

Radio stations that flip to "all-Christmas" programming weeks before Thanksgiving: Remembering that today is actually the "First Day of Christmas", and not the last.

To everyone: A most joyous Christmas season and an even better 2009!

Hypocricy? WTF are you talking about? I've been cautiously watching his progress and fully realize that although he's 6'5" and has a good arm..he's done absolutely nothing yet.

Ding me on having a crappy team, but at least give me s shred of credit. I haven't said one word Gabbert being superman. Hell, me may not even start next year if Dalton zooms past him.

Oh, and Merry Christmas to you as well. :)
