Grandpa Johnson

from the Las Vegas Sun,
John Johnson and his companion, longtime Clark County elementary school principal Kathryn Augsburger, saw the Wolverines play at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks in October, and they plan to see them at the University of Nebraska-Omaha next month. For someone who watched both of his sons, Jack Sr. and Jimmy, play at Michigan State, John Johnson said seeing Junior extend the Johnson line has been more thrilling. "We've had a helluva lot of fun with it," Johnson said. "I thought it was exciting when my two sons were playing college hockey, but this is even more exciting, when I know the kid is being watched so closely by scouts. "Pro hockey players, they live a fast life. Those kids, they're not encouraged to lay off the women or beer. So his dad thought another year, at Michigan, would be good for him."
