Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Happy Mother’s Day!

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! We are in a holding pattern waiting for the next opponent and dates when the Western Conference Finals will be played, but in the meantime let’s take a second and say Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there!

There of course is plenty of stories we all can share about our Moms, but the ones I will share on here are about how they mix with the Chicago Blackhawks.  My Mom always liked taking us to games when her and my Dad could score some seats now and again at Chicago Stadium. The Stadium was just so cool as a kid with the horn and well basically everything because you never got to see it on TV as a kid, all you knew about it was the few visits and whatever Pat Foley described about the place on radio.

The other story still fits to this day with my wife who overlooks the same thing.  One playoff season in the 80’s, after we finally got cable and could watch the Blackhawks on Sportsvision, the Chicago Blackhawks were in overtime and it was late into the night and the Hawks scored and me and my Dad yelled out this huge scream of excitement.  Now normally waking up the entire house including my little brother would be a huge lecture from Mom, but she just came out and asked if that scream meant the Hawks won and we said yes and high-fived Mom on the way to bed.

Here are some morning links to kick off your Mother’s Day!
