Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Ok, yesterday we celebrated the turning of the calendar from July to August, but really this is the dog days of summer. It’s hot out, and like we all felt come the end of this past February when we were all over winter, I’m really tired of summer and ready for the leaves to change and the calendar to turn to October.
Now if you like golf this is the best time of the year with it staying light late, but if you don’t get out early it really isn’t too much fun either. I’m just ready to see Artemi Panarin and Marko Dano on the ice and see who steps up to play with Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa in the Brandon Saad role.
It’s still hard to believe that Saad is gone. One thing that stood out in the Blackhawks Championship video is how everyone was talking about Saad as if he had 10 more seasons in a Blackhawks jersey locked down, and yet at the end of the day he’s a Columbus Blue Jacket which still kind of hurts.
Here are some Sunday morning links to kick off your day.
