In trouble. Again.


Just like last year, the Blackhawks find themselves on the brink of elimination against the Kings. A lot of internet folks and “experts” said that the Blackhawks were going to win this series. They win the first game. In the second, they dominated until late in the second period. Then, the wheels fell off. They lost that one. And the one after that. And the one after that also.

Just like last year at this time, I wish they would play the games on paper.

I’ll be the first to admit, that personally, I’ve been spoiled. Growing up with this team and watching them get tortured in the 90’s by teams like the Red Wings and Avalanche frustrated me. It was me loving players like Jeremy Roenick, Chris Chelios (asshole), Ed Belfour and later, Tony Amonte and Eric Daze. They didn’t win anything. I wasn’t happy but still, too young to be pissed off. Then, came the dreadful early to mid-2000’s. It was torture once again with bags of dicks such as Alexander Karpotsev, Jocelyn Thibault and Martin LaPointe.

The 2007-2008 season arrives and so does the demise of the old man himself, Bill Wirtz. Rocky takes over. Dale Tallon gives a eulogy speech at the home opener and gets booed by the crowd. Fast forward to 2010, here’s a Cup. Last year, have another. All of a sudden, people are saying that the Blackhawks are going to run the town like the Bulls did in the 90’s. That’s fine by me.

So here are the Blackhawks down 3-1 for the second year in a row. With the playoffs this year, comebacks aren’t rare. I said this in the previous series and I will say it again. If any team can make this type of comeback, it’s the Blackhawks. They’ve done it before. If they don’t want to face criticism about how high expectations were by losing all of these games because they couldn’t stay out of the penalty box, then they will win three in a row and advance to the Stanley Cup Final.

For the love of God, please win three in a row.

    Ugly, ugly thought…If the Black Hawks fall to the Kings, and the Rangers beat Montreal, then Gary Bettman will end up getting The Sport’s Commissioners’ Ultimate Wet Dream: a Championship series featuring the two largest TV markets in America…New York and Los Angeles. It will be the validation and vindication of every bullshit, punk-ass, boneheaded, greedy move he has pulled since the day he took office, and it will be justification of every stupid-ass thing he wants to do in the future.

    Go, Black hawks, dammit!!!

    Fro, I bet you had a good time tonite! It ain’t over until….

  4. Fro Dog Says:

    One game at a time. We’ll see what happens.

  5. genrebuster Says:

    Ok. I did not watch the game tonite.

    But here are my thoughts: regardless of how this series ends, I find it refreshing to see a Chicago pro-sports team play with “no fear”, like the Chicago Blackhawks did (again).

    Had the PATHETIC Chicago Cubs consistently played with the same mentality and intensity in October 2003; they would made it to the World Series, Steve Bartman would be anonymous and Dusty Baker – the toothpick chomping idiot – might still be manager… nah…………. probably not (Dusty)!

    Can someone explain to me just what exactly this fucking asshat has done to deserve this?

    They’re just hell bent to make sure that nobody gives a flying fuck about this half-assed organization.
