I shared this last night, but couldn't help but re-post. Western Michigan's CCHA championship banner (not the actual one, but one "commemorating it") was somehow pilfered from their ice arena earlier this week and they're asking for any possible leads, or better yet, the banner itself.

For those keeping score, WMU hockey has now channeled from both 'Taken' and 'The Big Lebowski.' Strong start to the season.
I sure hope they can find the missing banner. In the meantime, I made you guys a replacement one:
