Blackhawks Home Opener and Pre-game Event

October 14, 2008

Last night was the home opener for the Blackhawks. Before the game, the team held a “Red Carpet Event” for fans to see the team arrive and walk a red carpet into the United Center (The UC). I got there a bit early to ensure a prime viewing location, and I think I succeeded. You […]


Hockey, Here We Come!

October 3, 2008

Nik and I got home from work yesterday to have a Fed-Ex waiting for us. In it: Our Blackhawks season tickets. So excited for the season. Should be fun.


He's Just So cute!

Sorry for the non-Mets topics, but I’ll be back to baseball soon enough…in the meantime, enjoy a little video of another boyfriend of mine:


Inaugural Blackhawks Convention

July 20, 2008

Long before Nik and I became Blackhawks season ticket holders, the organization announced it’s first ever Blackhawks Convention. If you are unfamiliar with why this was a big deal, read this. But once we bought our season tickets we decided to check out the convention Myself and Nik along with a few friends/co-workers/fellow season ticket […]


It's Official!

There will be a Winter Classic at Wrigley Field on New Years Day 2009. The Chicago Blackhawks will host the Detroit Red Wings. Stay tuned…because I have a lot of hope that I’ll be there!


Back to Baseball

June 4, 2008

Well, the Penguins lost in game 6 to the Red Wings. They put up a good fight. Detroit got lucky with two goals that just got past Fleury. It’s too bad the Penguins can really only put the pressure on when they have a man advantage. Now they have to take a quick break, re-sign […]


It's a Series Now, Kids.

June 2, 2008

While the Mets are figuring out if they are for real or not, it’s still hockey time here at… The Penguins finally won in Detroit (4-3, 3 OT), forcing a game six back in Pittsburgh. Who is the man: Marc-Andre Fleury and his 55 saves or Maxime Talbot and his game tying goal with […]


Horrible Idea!

March 10, 2008

I am a Mets fan first and foremost! I am now a transplanted Connecticuter (?), New Yorker and Mets fan living in Chicago. I have embraced the history of Wrigley Field and the resurging Blackhawks, but I still miss a few things about NYC… However, an outdoor ice hockey game at Yankee Stadium? Are you […]


Covering the Bases

February 20, 2008

Just a few thoughts I’ve been meaning to post and I’m finally getting to it: Cubbies tickets go on sale Friday. As I previously wrote, the Mets are here for two games on April 21st and April 22nd. Can we say what boring timing? I would’ve loved a warm summer weekend again. Some friends at […]
