Good Morning, Chicago Blackhawks Fans!
The Chicago Blackhawks had a pretty rough year off the ice, starting with the Patrick Kane rape case and ending with the Garrett Ross revenge porn case that eventually was thrown out due to a technicality. I’ll be perfectly honest, it’s been a tough year for me to write about the Chicago Blackhawks with all of the off ice troubles they seemingly sidestepped for almost a calendar year.
Not only was it tough to write about the ’Hawks, but there were days when I just turned off social media and returned the next day because it was just too much. We reported on everything without adding very much of our personal opinion because, well, everyone has an opinion and it’s not our job to change personal opinions.
That being said, there were plenty of blogs that were outspoken about the Chicago Blackhawks, and one of my favorites closed shop yesterday after losing the enjoyment of writing after this past Blackhawks season. When I started reading blogs before joining Blackhawk Up, Hockee Night was always a place to stop and enjoy. Their podcasts were so much fun to listen to, with my kids still quoting some of the one we listened to on a road trip.
I’m by no means one of their friends or a friend of the podcast, but their unique voice will be missed this summer and for years to come during this Golden Era of Chicago Blackhawks hockey. I will especially miss Fork’s posts on the old Chicago Blackhawks of the 70s and early 80s; he actually watched them play, and his insight will be missed. To read their final post, here is the link.
