Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Twas!

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Since the Chicago Blackhawks are on their holiday break now and Joel Quenneville is hitting the slopes somewhere we might as well chat about something on Christmas Eve.  So let’s talk about the word Twas! This is the only day of the year that we use the word Twas and it’s only because it’s the first word of the Night Before Christmas poem.

We have all heard that poem our entire life and I bet if you hear the word Twas it’s either someone reciting or reading the poem or you instantly think of the poem.  Of course the only other reason to use the word is if your stuck playing Words With Friends.

So on this day before Christmas there isn’t much to discuss unless you want to flashback to Dallas Stars game and get upset about the Chicago Blackhawks effort in Big D, so since this is supposed to be an uplifting time let’s just go ahead and get to the is mornings links to kick off your Christmas Eve.
