Thank you, Pat.


It’s a shitty ending to a great career. The Blackhawks have forced one of the few good things about this franchise out in Pat Foley. Last season, he made a comment that offended so many dumbasses and right after, it was announced that he was going to be retiring after this season. The comment was something about giving credit to all of the people behind the scenes that made the broadcast under difficult circumstances. He made a reference to not being able to handle it if he had to do it. Yes, it was in poor taste. But it wasn’t that major of an issue. Yet, everyone got pissed.

Then, this past season happened with shit that was way worse that he had nothing to do with. Yet, he was only doing a limited number of games. The only bright spot this year was him calling games and he didn’t do very many of them.

As a fan, it sucks. I’m all about bringing in someone who was a fan. But I guess nothing lasts forever. I’ll always remember Foley for calling National broadcasts on Fox back in the mid-90’s. And whenever the Blackhawks were playing those same games, even better.

The Blackhawks are in a very bad place now both on and off the ice. It’s been difficult just trying to pay attention to it. I’m praying better days happen soon. But it would have been nice if Pat Foley was still on the broadcasts.

    Good grief.

    I’m not even going to waste the energy to look up what the supposedly offending comment Pat Foley made. It’s getting to the point where you can’t accidentally break wind without someone, somewhere getting offended.

    I joined Twitter a couple of months ago, just to follow some female news anchors. Good grief, what a complete shitshow. Based on Twitter alone, America may as well have a coast-to-coast bench clearing brawl. We have no chance of ever solving our greater problems because we spend too much time pissing each other off instead of listening to each other.
