Tri-City Herald: Ams set to face Spokane on Saturday

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

The Tri-City Americans have two games remaining before they head home for their Christmas break. They play at rival Spokane tonight, and despite the enthusiasm that generally comes with a matchup against the Chiefs, the mood around the Americans’ dressing room was somber Friday afternoon.

The Tri-City players had been tweeting during the day about the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., where 20 children were shot and killed, along with six adults.

“When you think about what just has happened, you have to think about their families this close to Christmas,” said Americans alternate captain Jesse Mychan. “It’s just a tragedy. I know all the guys (in the dressing room) are disgusted. We were just talking about it. Our hearts go out to their families, for sure. It’s just heartbreaking. Parents drop them off at school and never get to see them again. I can’t even imagine what they are going through.”

It’s during times of tragedy that sports can bring a little normalcy back to people’s lives, and Mychan said he and his teammates can lean on each other.
