First off, much thanks for the PG guys , Dobber, Angus for the opportunity and for carving out a little slice of this fine site for us to write about our favorite teams.
I am Brandon 37 years young from Detroit, Michigan born and raised. I am a big Red Wings fan, however somewhere in my DNA at birth the doctors must of done something to me because I bleed Blackhawk colors. Growing up in Detroit around my friends and family was indeed a wild ride, no one understanding how I can be a Red Wing fan but a Blackhawk Diehard. Thinking back as far as I could it was ( I'd guess around 1985) with the likes of Denis Savard, Troy Murray, Al Secord, Doug Wilson, Steve Larmer, Ed Olczyk - this is when my love for the Hawks really took off and 25 years later the love is as strong as ever. A few years later my all time favorite Chicago Blackhawk came on board and the Hawknation love fest just grew and grew ( Jeremy Roenick) I dont care what anyone says this was a great moment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ec8PNGt7N0. Steve Thomas, Adam Creighton, Chris Chelios, The Eagle.. Anyway, enough rambling...
This area will feature any / all Hawks news and notes
Player news. lines, trades, injuries, etc etc
Some Rockford news that is relevant
Hawk History ( going down memory lane)
Much Much more..
I will start out with simple stuff, get my feet wet then really delve into it.
I encourage everyone and anyone to participate and interact and share your Hawk comments.
Anyway I Just wanted to chime in for a quick moment give a small introduction of myself and let everyone know what will come ahead.
It's Thanksgiving here, so it will be a couple days or so before I really dive into this, by the weekend I will be ramping up The " Madhouse"
For now, I leave you with this
( some bad lyrics so mute volume if you dont want kids or others to hear-It's Eminem haha)
