very happy for the blackhawks

even though i have lived in California longer than i lived in ILL

theres no way i would ever root for any other team more than the Chicago team

except of course for the south siders in the junior circuit.

i am loyal, to a fault. it may be my biggest fault.

in order for me to turn my back you’ve probably done something pretty bad.

if not several things

many times.

the blackhawks, and their fans: amazing.

even when they werent very good, youd see people with those beautiful jerseys

all over the chicagoland area.

my mom sent me video of blocks and blocks and blocks around Wrigley Field

of Hawks fans in the streets cheering like crazy.

if i was there, id so be there.

blackhawk fans partying

biggest surprise of the day? the dude from the nanny was there! patt the hat was stoked!

all in all, yes i dont like going to things like this, but in very small doses, it can actually be  funner than sitting around.

thanks obama!
