Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans!
Well if your like most people this past week, no one has been to worried about the hockey or the Chicago Blackhawks with this being the true dog days of summer in NHL news. The real news this past week has been whats been going on in Rio and the Summer Olympics.
Of course the one American who has made the biggest news has been the one the we have heard from the most for seemingly this entire century has been Michael Phelps. The other night he went into full Jonathan Toews face mode which got Chicago Blackhawks social media all worked up.
Our friend Dan Cohen posted this on Twitter and we put it on our Facebook page and it was a great pic of both Phelps and the Captain.
The Chicago Blackhawks Captain of course has won his gold medals too but of course no where near Michael Phelps 21 but they are both champions and they make some great faces for the land of social media memes which is ok by me and most people.
The Captain has to be ready for a bounce back season after last year’s season which was ok, but it wasn’t up to his normal standards so hopefully this long off season will pay off in the end next spring in the playoffs. Either way I’m sure there will be plenty of faces to go around next year too.
