Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Foley At Wrigley

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks made some roster moves on Friday, but the best move of all was made by Pat Foley at Wrigley Field. 

Everyone knew that Pat Foley would be throwing out the first pitch at Wrigley Field on Friday afternoon before the Chicago Cubs hosted the Cincinnati Reds in the season finale series.  What Foley did was really cool.

Before he threw the first pitch, he put on an Ed Olczyk jersey to honor his long time broadcast partner who is battling cancer right now.

It’s no secret that Pat Foley may be the most influential person ever for me becoming such a loyal Chicago Blackhawks fan.  It was listening to him with Dale Tallon as his color man in the early 80’s on the radio that hooked me in before I ever watched a Blackhawks game.

So to see Foley out there supporting his current partner is something expected and pretty cool of him all in one.  Not only did he throw out the first pitch, Foley also sang the 7th inning stretch and again talked about Eddie.

Hopefully Eddie will get better soon and be back in the booth talking about soft serve ice cream with Foley.

Only 5 days left until the season kicks off from the United Center.
