this may be of some local interest
Billy Sauer is playing in the ECHL, and after a brawl breaks out in one of his games he came down the ice to support his teammates. He and the other goalie end up going at it at center ice.
Unfortunately, I have to say that he didn't come out on top, though didn't lose too badly. Puck Daddy has your breakdown (and video) here.
The (illegal) hits keep coming for MSU:
Police mum regarding Rather Hall altercation
By Brittany Shammas
Police and university officials were tight-lipped Monday about what witnesses have described as a multiple-person assault that happened at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday in the Rather Hall lounge.
Witnesses and students involved in the incident said a group of 15 to 20 men, who some described as MSU football players, stormed into the dormitory and hit and injured about seven students, some of them women.
Brent Mitchell, a communication junior who said he was sent to Lansing’s Sparrow Hospital after being punched in the face, said some of the men wore ski masks, but others were recognized as football team members.
“I walked up and said, ‘It isn’t worth it.’ A guy with dreadlocks hit me and in the scuffle slapped, hit females to get them out of the way,” Mitchell said.
Mitchell said members of his fraternity, Iota Phi Theta, had just finished a potluck event and were folding chairs in the lounge when the men entered. The men said they were looking for a man who had been involved in a spat with one of them the night before during an Iota Phi Theta event at The Small Planet, 16800 Chandler Road, Mitchell said.
Mitchell said he was struck after the men realized the person they sought wasn’t there. He said the altercation lasted for about a minute before the men left.
Mechanical engineering sophomore Andrew Green said he saw one of the men hit another student on his way out.
“He was coming downstairs and looked at him and punched him in the jaw,” Green said.
sexy. also, fwiw, the comments below have some joy within.
Last night on TV (on VS.) the UFC light heavyweight title fight was on. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson fought against Dan Henderson. I'm somewhat new to watching the sport, but I like it a lot. I think this could grow into the next big thing. Rampage Jackson is a tank and he throws some big hooks. This guy beat Chuck Lidell twice, and I think he's here to stay as a belt contender. He's only 29 and he's in his prime. Is anybody else a fan and watch the fight?
EDIT: Also, the other fights were pretty good. I think the deaf fighter got hosed and should've beaten Bispin from England. I really like the set up of UFC with the line-up of multiple fights leading up to the big fight of the night.
