Bobblehead Cabinet

December 31, 2012

I’m not sure when I started collecting bobbleheads, but I imagine it was shortly after graduating college. I have so many of them that I had to pick and choose which ones would sit out on display at home. I have some shelves that they would sit on, but they’d get dusty. That’s when I […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
