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 […]

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 […]

May 25, 2008

While the Mets were busy winning their first game in what seems like a month, Nik and I ventured to Detroit for game one of the Stanley Cup finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings. While the bar we went to pre-game was decent, and the people there were fun, the same couldn’t […]
