The Sports Room

February 11, 2012

Nik and I recently moved into a new condo and wasted no time making on of the bedrooms a sports room. The room was already painted red when we moved in and since most of our frames and shelves were a dark color, we decided to leave the paint color alone. (Note: click on any […]


White Sox vs. Cubs + Blackhawks = Heaven?

June 14, 2010

I had never been to a Sox/Cubs game and when I saw a YouSwoop deal for $79 rooftop tickets, I thought it was a good opportunity to go. It also ended up being a night where the Cubs honored the Blackhawks for winning the Stanley Cup. The team, including coaches and other staff all walked […]


Blackhawks Stanley Cup Celebration

June 12, 2010

On Wednesday, in game six of the Stanley Cup Final, the Blackhawks beat the Flyers 4-3 in overtime to win the cup. On Friday, the city organized a parade and rally for the team that worked its way east along Washington and north on Michigan Avenue to a stage at Michigan and Wacker. As this […]


Blackhawks 6, Flyers 5 – Stanley Cup Final Game 1

May 30, 2010

I grew up a Whalers fan…and then they moved to Carolina.  I then started following the Rangers, including stints as an MSG intern and Rangers game night staff. I met Nik who was a Penguins fan, and I root for them on occasion. And then we moved to Chicago. Now we’re Blackhawks fans and season […]


How the Blackhawks Beat the Rangers

December 10, 2009

The game was in overtime and Dustin Byfuglien (aka Big Buff) steps on the ice and more or less gets on a breakaway: Takes a shot: And it goes in and King Henrik is beat! It really was a great game. The Hawks got off 35 or so shots and scored their only regulation goal […]


Blackhawks Night at U.S. Cellular Field

September 5, 2009

Friday night was Blackhawks Night at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. As a Blackhawks season ticket holder, Nik and I had the opportunity to buy tickets for the event which also got us into the White Sox/Red Sox game. The whole ticket package was a great deal: special event t-shirt, admission […]


Canucks 3, Blackhawks 1

May 5, 2009

Tuesday night Nik and I continued our Blackhawk season at the United Center for game 3 of the Blackhawks/Canucks Western Conference Semi-Final game. We got there to see some of the warm-ups and use the new camera again. The pictures (down below and here) are far and away better than any we have taken with […]


2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley Field

January 2, 2009

About half of my New Years day was spent at the “Frozen Confines” of Wrigley Field for the NHL Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks. The day started around 9:15 at Murphy’s Bleachers. Around 11, Nik and I made our way into the game. Despite the outcome, it was one […]


My Field Trip to Wrigley

December 21, 2008

It’s not really much of a field trip since it’s in my neighborhood, but regardless, I ventured to Wrigley on Thursday afternoon to check out the Winter Classic Prep. Here a few pictures I took, but since then there has been a lot more progress made. Again, I cannot wait for this game. I just […]


November Ramblings

November 17, 2008

Here we are, half way through the month of November and the baseball hot stove is heating up. Yay. Great. Woo-hoo. Seriously, tell me when deals are done. I’m not a fan of the rumors, the daily reports and so on. I know the Mets need pitching help and I hope they are smart about […]
