Sounds like we have a pretty damn good County Commissioner here in Cook County. Mike Quigley has written a resolution to make Jan. 1st "Chicago Blackhawks Day" and make the area surrounding Wrigley an "Octopus Free Zone".
As an added bonus - he included a secret message in the last line "DETROIT SUCKS".
If you check out the comments section of that article, you'll get to read the thoughts of a bunch of people with no sense of humor, also known as people from Detroit. What a bunch of tools..
It seems like the picture from yesterday isn't official yet - The NHL still hasn't decided where the rink will be on Wrigley. Seems like it'd make more sense to have one goal near home plate with the other in center. Hopefully they'll have plenty of time to figure it out since baseball will be long over by then.
Bobby Hull continues to show how much he loves booze (and one of the reasons why we all love him). During an interview at the press conference yesterday he talked about how cold it was in Wrigley when he used to watch Bears games there - and made the reporter nervous when he started talking about bringing his flask into the game and taking sips throughout the game. Something I do all the time at the United Center...
There's also this YouTube video - around 30 seconds in you can hear Bobby say he knows a good bar nearby. It was probably 1:00 in the afternoon..
These cocktease rumors about Kopitar just won't go away..
Finally, PuckDaddy, Greg Wyshynski, asks a question we all fear. Can we trust the NHL with ticket distribution?
Really? The SuperBowl? We're so fucked...
