Eleven things we're thankful for

1. DirecTV and the Dish Network

2. 5-foot-9 skill guys you just know will stay for four years

3. The stick salute

4. The legend of Hobey Baker

5. Twin-label technology on the new Molson Canadian bottles

6. Tuning in an NHL game, hearing the announcer call a player's name, and saying to yourself, "I remember when I saw him in that regional in Madison way back when"

7. Great old barns like Lynah Rink, Yost Ice Arena, and Matthews Arena

8. We've mentioned them before, we'll mention them again: the Bud Song, the Beanpot, Miami co-eds, the Michigan Tech band, and Slapshot

9. Bosses who let you leave at 4:30 for Friday games and wives who let you leave at noon for Saturday night games

10. The Wednesday night before the Frozen Four

11. The fact that we could have included about 50,000 more things on this list
