Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks Fans!

Well, Chicago Blackhawks fans this date usually passes by without much fanfare for us since we are normally in the middle of  covering the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup playoff run, but this year the Chicago Blackhawks season was cut short after only one series so now it’s time to look at things we miss during those long playoff runs.

One thing is to today, May the Fourth Be With You is in a string of days that the date is “holiday”.  Today is a fun day for Star Wars fans especially now with another movie out there which we watched the other night…again.  I never really watched any Star Wars movies as a kid, but since the new ones came out I’ve watched them all since my kids really liked them.

The point is that as fun as it is to talk about these dates, I would really rather be talking about the Dallas Stars right now and Game 4-7 which the Chicago Blackhawks normally dominate.  Hopefully this is just one spring of not watching hockey and not a bad trend. Everyone talks about this being a blessing in disguise, but the only problem is we won’t know the return of this theory until next year.
