BH Town

I listen to a lot of sports talk radio.  It is usually interesting when the local teams are losing. At the beginning of the hockey season, you could not find any hockey talk on the radio.  After all, there were the Bears, Bulls, White Sox & Cubs talk to talk about.

But now all you can hear is the Blackhawks' players or experts talking about the Hockey season.  For those of you who do not follow sports, the (hated) Blackhawks are in the Stanley Cup Final with a 2-0 games lead.

Those of us who are Redwing fans, it is very boring talk.  Last year when the Redwings & PIT were in the finals there was little talk about it, after the BH's lost.  My son is a big BH fan, whereas, my son-in-law is a RW fan.  Unfortunately, for us the BH have a very good young team who will probably be good for a long time.  But we RW fans' hope is that we will raise again!

  1. I do not understand how anyone could call living in the town (or at least it suburbs) that is 2 games away from winning the Stanley Cup is "boring"... especially when that team has not won the cup in 49 years. For a fan-base that calls themselves "Hockey Town" Red Wing fans are notoriously absent if their team is not in it.
