Christmas thoughts

DESPITE MICHIGAN'S disappointing hockey season
thus far, the Wolverines have provided all with
some interesting entertainment. Here are some
revelations you probably will not find anywhere else.
" Highlight of the season: Beating Michigan State,
the pre-season CCHA favorite, 5-4, in one of the most
exciting hockey contests ever at Yost Ice Arena. Brad
McCaughey's breakaway goal with just over four
minutes to play ranks as the biggest goal of the year to
Illinois-Chicago coach Val Belmonte was not sur-
prised with the Wolverine effort, however.
"The rivalry with the Spartans is a natural," the
Flames top man said. "It's like Harvard playing Yale.
It's probably one of the most important games they're
going to play in their lives.
"These guys hear about that tradition from
generations of people who come to Michigan. So
naturally they're going to play above themselves. They
should, and if they don't, something is wrong."
Spartan goalie Norm Foster agrees wholeheartedly
with Belmonte.
"I saw the Michigan-Michigan State football game
(my freshman year) and they beat us 42-0. My school
pride made me feel sick inside," he said. "You can win
an NCAA title, but if you don't beat Michigan, it doesn't
make it worthwhile."
" Lowlight of the season: Being swept by pre-season
cellar choice, Ferris State, the same weekend the foot-
ball team lost to Iowa. How bad was it? Michigan
coach Red Berenson conducted his post game inter-
views Saturday night in an adjacent pitch dark skating
" Lowlight II: Dropping a pair of games to Western
Michigan this past weekend. Adding insult to injury,
the Broncos were short eight regulars for violating
team drinking policy. Although the suspended players
would not comment Friday night, we secretly caught
up with them Saturday night in the 'M' Go Blue shop as
they were talking to a Western booster.
"We've been going to that bar all year and now all of
a sudden it turns into a major scandal," said an
unidentified suspendee.
There is no doubt as to why the school is often
referred to as Waste-ern Michigan. Leading by exam-
ple, Bronco team captain Chris MacDonald was one of
those sitting out the series. This comes as no surprise,
as MacDonald's New Year's resolution as found on a
Western press release is as follows: "To graduate at
all costs ... provided it doesn't involve homework or
studying late or interrupts sleeping time."
They said it
Best non-hockey quote:
"Only 53 minutes until Miami Vice starts," so said
a disgruntled security guard in the press box at Yost as

a . . time for gifts
MignFrwas taking a beating at the hands of Team
Canada one Friday evening.
" Most honest quote of the year: "We're expected to
win these kind of games. We have a lot at stake and we
have to accept that responsibility. If we lose these
games it'll be all over the papers and we'll look back in
two days and want to kick ourselves in the rear end,"
said Team Canada coach Dave King as his squad
toured the U.S. colleges.
" No scholarships, huh? "Don't let people tell you,
you can't get into Harvard unless you have 1400 or
1500 on your (college) boards. They have non-existing
jobs and scholarships, don't kid yourself. I know all
about that stuff," said Ferris State coach Dick Ber-
trand, a former 11-year head coach at Cornell.
" More Bertrand: "I sure hope Red's goaltending
holds up." Prophetic early season (October 18) words
about a trio of goaltenders who currently lead the
league in goals allowed.
Look under the tree
In the holiday spirit, here are our Christmas gifts.
* To Myles O'Connor - Some well needed rest for
logging an abundance of ice time. The freshman
defenseman from Calgary has quickly developed into
one of the Wolverines' best blue liners and has received
rave reviews from around the league.
* To Brad McCaughey - Boxing gloves. The 6-2 183
pounder may have found a second career. In the only
full scale brawl of the year, the sophomore from Ann
Arbor pummeled Michigan State center Mitch
Messier, who fights like his cousin Mark of the Stanley
Cup champion Edmonton Oilers. McCaughey
unquestionably landed the more telling blows, but
Messier popped a good right to the chin after the of-
ficials had apparently separated the combatants.
" To Brad Jones - Five minutes in a dark alley with
Bowling Green cheap shot artist Mark Lori. Jones was
speared by the Falcons' right winger in both games of
a weekend series and then Lori had the audacity to go
at O'Connor after he had done away with Jones. It is
rumored that Lori has started to grow a beard and has
changed uniform numbers to avoid retaliation as the
January 10-11 series between the two teams ap-
" To Jeff Norton - A Community Chest card to get out
of the penalty box free. The sophomore defenseman
has in 16 games amassed a total of 19 penalties accoun-
ting for 38 penalty minutes. At this rate, however, Nor-
ton will not be able to match last year's staggering
total of 44 penalties for 103 minutes.
*To Red Berenson - Some sorely needed wins
especially on the road where the Wolverines have yet
to be victorious this season.
" To Red Berenson II - Some prize freshman
recruits. While this season is far from over, the future
behind the former NHL coach-of-the-year looks
promising. Red will be hanging an NCAA champion-
ship banner from the rafters at Yost Ice Arena within
the next six years. You heard it here first.

It's not too long until you'll be walking up to get
your degree. But there's something you could get
right now that will help you in any walk of life. The
American Express* Card.
Because if you're a senior and you've
accepted a $10,000 career-oriented job, you
could get the American Express Card.
That's it. No strings. No gimmicks. (And even if
you don't have a job right now, don't worry. This
offer is still good for 12 months after you graduate.)
This is a special offer from American Express be-
cause, as graduating seniors, we think you're kind
of special. In fact, we believe in your future. And

this is the best way we know to prove it.
Of course, the American Express Card will
prove to be a great help to you in your career-for
travel and for entertaining. And, to entertain your-
self, you can use it to buy some new clothes for
work or some new things for home. In addition, the
Card is also a great way to help you begin to estab-
lish your credit history.
So call 1-800-THE-CARD and ask to have a Spe-
cial Student Application sent to
you. Or look for one on campus.
The American Express Card.
