Open Thread.

June 23, 2010

Now that the Blackhawks celebration has cooled off for yours truly, it’s time to get back to business: Writing crappy articles followed by comments by crappy people like ourselves on the crappiest website in the history of the internet.

I plan on having an interesting article (rant) sometime next week along with a few comments on the Bulls free agency search, maybe a dumb wrestling article and something on the Bears.

And speaking about the Bears. Just a little over a month until the Bears start training camp. Who’s excited? Oh that’s right. Nobody. Eh. I am excited for football to start but the results the Bears may bring? Not so much. We’ll see though.

Twice is nice.

Last year was Patrick Kane. This year is Jonathon Toews. Another good cover by EA Sports. Although it’s a bit weird seeing two players from the same team go on the cover of a video game. Usually, companies put players from different teams on the cover. It should be a good game. A lot of new features including broken sticks, passing sticks to other teammates and kicking pucks.

Rickett’s Makes First Baseball Hire

Tom Ricketts hired a stat guru to help in evaluating talent in future trades, free agent signings, and drafts. Could this be the beginning of the end for Hendry?

Just a few parade photos.

Some idiot decided to climb all the way up there to steal a couple Stanley Cup Champion banners. He was successful.

June 9, 2010


I have been waiting for this day for a long time.

I have been waiting for this day since rooting for Roenick, Chelios and Belfour. Seeing Roenick cry after the game almost made me shed a tear.

I am so happy right now. I cannot describe what’s going on. I stuck around through some tough days with this team. Seeing all the likes of Eric Daze, Joceyln Thibault and Rene Borque was a bad time for the Blackhawks but I stuck around.

My statement stood corrected when I said the Blackhawks will only go far as long as Antti Niemi is the goalie. And it did.

June 9th, 2010 will be one of the greatest days of my life.

I will be at the parade Friday morning in Chicago. If anybody is going, please let me know and we will celebrate this one together. Especially a good friend of the site MadCityMac. If you’re reading this Mike, you should seriously consider making the trip down here. We don’t know when we might celebrate a championship again.

Series tied 2-2.

June 5, 2010

Just when everyone thought the Blackhawks were going to roll right through the Flyers in this series, it has now turned into a fight. Even after the 2-0 start in the series, I knew that this wasn’t going to be easy. Yet the so called “experts” kept saying that the Blackhawks were going to win easily. Predictions don’t mean shit. Teams still have to play the games.

The Blackhawks are close to being fucked. All they had to do was win at least one of the two games on the road and they didn’t. They even played like crap the first two games of the series and still managed to win both of them. That shows you how good of a team this is. Now they need to start playing like one.

So we’ll see what happens Sunday night as well as Wednesday night. I am not a pessimist. I am a realist and the reality is that this team is in trouble.
