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 can see all the pictures on Flickr, but here are just a few of my favorites from the event:

The game itself was alright. The Hawks played the Nashville Predators. The Hawks were down early but came back to tie it up and the game went to a shootout with the Predators getting two goals in for the win. Luckily the Hawks still earned a point for the standings. Most of the game pictures are on Flickr, but here are a few:
