Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! As August is winding down and baseball is really starting to get boring, the White Sox hosted a Chicago Blackhawks night on Wednesday.
Baseball was my first love as a kid, and I still like going to a game whether it’s a major league game or minor league game. The thing is that when the calendar is reading August 25th, it’s time to turn the page on baseball quite honestly. I guess it’s too many seasons of watching meaningless baseball from the Cubs in September.
So to get fans in the stadium, the White Sox had a very good plan of having a Chicago Blackhawks night, and in doing so they would have Joel Quenneville throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game.
These pitches rarely are strikes, and Coach Q didn’t get it over the plate on his toss either, but it was nice to see Coach out there and to see all the Chicago Blackhawks sweaters once again in a stadium.

The one thing I remember most about going to Game #4 of the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs was how few Chicago Blackhawks jerseys were in the crowd. I’ve been to a couple of “Keep the Red Out” regular season games, and you would think you are at the United Center, but Game #4 felt like a real road game with less than 5% of the crowd being Chicago. This is why I can’t wait to see the Blackhawks in action again.
