While you were hoping that Santa Claus chose to ignore your behavior last night...

• NHL. Capitals 1, Sharks 4. 'Twas a good night to be a Thornton. Joe had a goal and an assist; Scott had 2 assists. And somewhere, probably, Billy Bob got laid.
• College Football. Appalachian State 21, Northern Iowa 16. There is something very awesome about winning a national championship on a fumble returned for a touchdown.
• NBA. Heat 112, 76ers 105. Pat Riley moves to 3-0. Pat Riley's hair does not move at all.
