Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links: Summertime Blues

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Stanley Cup was won less than a week ago and while the parade/rally was a good time and seeing the Chicago Blackhawks players running around with the Cup in Chicago has been fun to track something hit me late Saturday afternoon that was quite sad.

There is no more hockey or any other type of Winter sport left to watch until football returns in September.  I turned on the TV Saturday afternoon and my options were the U.S. Open and Baseball (Yawn)

Granted this is the first time in at least a half of a decade there is anything exciting to even see from the Chicago Cubs, but it is still a real downer after the exciting Stanley Cup run we witnessed for the last two months from the Chicago Blackhawks.

The weather is nice and there is plenty to do outside, but yesterday was the first real time I missed turning on the TV without a Chicago Blackhawks playoff game to look forward to watching.  Oh well we did just win the Cup! Here are some morning links to kick off your Sunday morning.
