Blackhawks News

One more day…

By Jeffrey Bartl

Start painting your faces, ‘Hawks fans — it’s nearly time.

This going to be very brief today, as I’m getting ready to hop a flight to Vegas in a few hours to celebrate the bachelor party of former Indianapolis Colts offensive lineman Matt Ulrich. I won’t be sober.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve read and listened to everything possible regarding the Stanley Cup Final. The Blackhawks are heavy favorites, the Flyers don’t care and we’re all going to be in for a treat when the puck drops on this series. As I step away from the site for a couple of days, please just take one thing away from here that I’ve been saying all week — the Flyers will not go down easy, so don’t expect it to happen.

In my stead, Forklift of the witty and informative Blackhawks blog HOCKEENIGHT will be writing the recap of Game 1. Be sure to stop by, because he’ll be making fun of me a lot.

I’ll be watching the game in the Caesar’s sportsbook sipping on a 190 Octane from Fat Tuesday’s, and I hope you’re going to be as excited as myself from where ever you decide to watch.

I’ll be back Sunday night with some thoughts. GO ‘HAWKS!!
