Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! What should have been a fun and festive win after losing eight straight games ended up being an ugly scene in Chicago thanks to four stupid fans!
What four fans said to Devante Smith-Pelly on Saturday night was totally unacceptable period, and I’m thankful that the Chicago Blackhawks’ staff and United Center staff took immediate action. There is no place for that kind of taunting ever! Through Twitter and our website we had many comments, and most of them were right on point!
There were many articles written about the incident all day Sunday, and I hope something is done permanently to those four fans such as never getting inside the United Center ever again. This isn’t what the Chicago Blackhawks fanbase is all about! Those four are not a snapshot of what I ever want to be lumped into! It’s very upsetting to me that they even call themselves Blackhawks fans!
