Hanging by a thread


The Blackhawks are once again, facing elimination. I knew this was going to be a tough series but the way the Blackhawks are losing these games is just amazing. The first game, it’s a deflection off of Trevor vanRiemsdyk. The third game, more deflections that result in goals. This last game, it’s the Blackhawks committing penalties and resulting in goals.

Nobody expected this to be easy. I’ve said this many times over these last few years that the hardest thing to do in sports is winning the Stanley Cup. Doing it again the following year seems to be above and beyond that. It’s frustrating to see how the Blackhawks have been playing. And their frustrations are showing on the ice with guys like Corey Crawford and Andrew Shaw trying to fire up the team and fans by fighting. It obviously didn’t work in Game 4.

So, here we are with the Blackhawks down 3-1. They’ve came back before. We’ve all seen it. All of the other teams I cheer for in sports, once they are down, it’s over. Not the Blackhawks. They’ve proved over and over again that nothing is for sure. It’s too late to complain about what has went wrong with this team all season and in this series.

I am just sitting here praying to God that the Blackhawks win three in a row and advance to the second round.

    Well, they’ve had issues on defense. They had Trevor Daley earlier in the year and traded him to the Penguins for Rob Scuderi. Then, the Blackhawks waive him and ended up trading him to the Kings. They picked up Jiri Sekac and gave him to the Coyotes. They could have used any one of those. All of those crazy deflections and poor play by vanRiemsdyk and Rozsival have led to goals.

    Then, on the other side of this, Corey Crawford and Andrew Shaw have let their emotions get to them. This series is a bit reminiscent of the 2013 series against the Red Wings where the Blackhawks took a ton of penalties.

    Whether or not the Blackhawks repeat what happened in that series in this one is yet to be determined. We’ll see what happens.

    I am going to try to cheer all of you up here with this post. Check out my future wife showing how awesome she is at basketball.

    Uhhhh, Fro, does Elena know that she’s your future wife? I know that Cheryl Scott doesn’t know she’s mine. In fact, she doesn’t even know I’m alive. Sometimes my life just sucks.

    Nice start to the season for the Cubs. But, if they can’t their guys to start hitting better than .150, those wins will start becoming losses in a hurry.

    It seems it’s always one thing (good pitching, can’t hit) or another (good hitting, can’t get anybody out!) with this team.

  6. Erniesarmy Says:

    Elena is too tall for you, Fro. You need a point guard.

  7. Fro Dog Says:


    Yes. She does. I am sure Cheryl knows you exist. She’s just busy at the moment. If I run into her again, I’ll let her know you want to see her. I should have told her that three years ago but I didn’t.

    And no, Ernie, she is just perfect for me. I could care less about some lady’s height. I’m the Fro Dog and if I say she’s my future wife, she is.

    Good morning to all of our frendts and their future partners! Pot stirring will resume soon.

    I’m the Fro Dog and if I say she’s my future wife, she is.

    “Thus, let it be written. Thus, let it be done!”

  10. chucky Says:

    Ernie, if that’s true, ask Fro to say that Cheryl Scott will be my future wife.

    Pretty Please!!!!!

    Uh-oh, Chucky. I was being creepy by doing some research and found something. I think you’re going to have to get your chainsaw out. Don’t do it for just yourself. Do it for all of us. Take this guy to the cleaners.

  13. chucky Says:

    I’ll do my best Mr. T impression here.

    DEAD MEAT!!!!

    Well, that fucking sucked. The Blackhawks fought back and tied the series and this game in the second period. They came within inches of tying the game late but Seabrook’s shot pinballed off of both goal posts. But they really put themselves in a bad position earlier in the series with a lot of penalties. Every game was close.

    Make no mistake about it, St. Louis is still, the inbred capital of the world. All of their fans are related in some way, shape or form. May their city sink into the Mississippi.
