Chicago Blackhawks

Penaltykill.net Welcomes Hackett’s Chicago Blackhawks

Chicago BlackhawksWelcome to the Chicago Blackhawks blog! If you wil allow me a quick intro, I’m Ryan. Current Chicago resident, Hawks fan for life. If you really need proof, check my arm…

And by the way, I’m going to refer to the Hawks as “we”. First of all, it makes things easier. Secondly, I feel I’ve earned it.

I asked the administrator (Dean) for guidelines, and he said that he wanted blogs “by fan, for fans”. And to paraphrase, he continued to say that anyone can recap a game, but people come here to get the fans’ perspective on the team. And that’s what I intend to provide.

As another point of introduction, my 2nd love, after hockey, is music. Many of my posts may be accompanied by aural suggestions and/or bandgeek moments. That said, as I write this, I am listening to Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s Ledbetter Heights, which starts with, appropriately, “Born With a Broken Heart.” …And now onto our regularly scheduled programming…

As we get ready to kick off the North American part of our schedule (i.e. all but 2 games), I couldn’t be more excited. We’re entering this season with the highest hopes we’ve had in…well…almost ever. The Blackhawks are in a position to throttle the Western Conference and take on the Beasts from the East, but they must get through a current reincarnation of the Norris Division first. Every team has gotten better, and mostly because they weren’t that bad last year. It’s not going to be a cakewalk by any stretch of the imagination, but I look forward to reliving the Black ‘n Blue Division of old, even if our game is more geared towards runnin’ & gunnin’.

It’s going to be a GREAT year Hawks fans, let’s do our best to recreate the life that the Ol’ Barn had and bring The Cup back home. And for all you on twitter, the hashtag is #LETSGOHAWKS!!!

  5. hey hackett! Welcome! I look forward to “working” with you.

    I agree with sharksfan: I have tattoos, but can’t decide on a Ducks themed one.
