Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Winter Classic was played yesterday, and it kind of gave me the blues since the Chicago Blackhawks weren’t playing in it. There was nothing more exciting to me then when the Chicago Blackhawks opened up the 2009 calendar year with a home game at Wrigley Field against the Detroit Red Wings.
This was the game the officially brought back a bunch of old Chicago Blackhawks fans back into the fold and back to rooting for their favorite hockey team. It’s kind of sad looking back to that game because the years are flying by, and even though the Chicago Blackhawks have won 3 of the past 6 Stanley Cups, the window is never getting bigger but smaller ever year.
Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and Duncan Keith aren’t getting any younger and even though they are in their late 20’s and early 30’s Father Time loses to no one so when I think back to that Winter Classic, the core was so young back then and now they are smack dab in the middle of their prime.
The Chicago Blackhawks have one more day off before they host the Ottawa Senators on Sunday night, so on this day off here are some morning links to kick off your weekend.
