    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/9/10 – Chicago Blackhawks

    Here in Chicago last night, fireworks were crackling, car horns were honking and I think I even heard some banging on pots and pans. It was long overdue.

    Picture Of The Day: Something To Smile About

    I didn’t know the Chicago Blackhawks’ fanbase was boasting McLovin as one of their own.  They should be very proud.  Where should I start with this kid?  The fashion faux-pas of wearing a jersey with no shirt underneath?  The butt crack hairdo?  The smile?  The sideburns? Or the lip fur that only exists around the […]

    Is ‘Air Jordan’ Now ‘Ice Jordan’?

    Throughout the 90s, Chicago was a town fixated on the Bulls and their six NBA championships.  Much of that was the result of Michael “Air” Jordan, and for all the winning he brought to the Windy City, they decided to give a little something back; a statue of His Airness in his most popular pose.

    Duncan Keith had the ultimate last word over the taunting Nashville Predators fans when the Blackhawks won last night and took the series 4-2.
