Providing passionate and pragmatic views on the Chicago Blackhawks as well as coverage of the Rockford IceHogs. Raised in Northern Illinois, I was fortunate enough to have my Dad immerse me in the best game on Earth. Pond hockey, weekends at various ice rinks, attending minor league games, and trips to the old barn (Chicago Stadium) are part of the fabric of my youth. Regular attendee at the United Center during the "lost decade". Blackhawks STH since 2007.
