Let’s Go Hawks!

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent ISeptember 26, 2010

Felt good to back at the UC Saturday night.
Game 1 of my modest Blackhawks season ticket package.
Hawks threw us peons in the 300-level a bone with a pre-season matchup vs. Detroit. Hey, we’ll take it!

With the Cubs suffering through the final weeks of the season, Hawks hockey is right on que. Cubs fans, including myself, could use a break. The Bears are the easy choice, but the Hawks are the popular one. And why not after winning its first Stanley Cup in 49 years!

The Blackhawks are so hot right now 20,553 showed up for Saturday’s preseason game. That’s a franchise record for an exhibition contest. Coach Q’s bunch, as expected, delivered a thrilling 4-2 win. Not exactly the excitement surrounding Wrigley Field, eh!

I printed the Hawks current roster to take with me to the game.
There are so many new faces I can’t always tell who’s who out there.
I still see No. 32 and think Versteeg, No. 16 Ladd, No. 33 Byfuglien…and so on.
But those guys are history and the new meat has arrived, and just in time for the official end of the Cubs’ season.
