Stop Gloating Katey

God, the Blackhawks suck.

They've got 8 points out of a possible 22 in 11 games? And they can't even beat lowly Philadelphia? And if we aren't mistaken, they haven't scored in THREE STRAIGHT GAMES?

Mr. Wirtz? Please sell the team. Just be happy with your liquor distributorships and hotels and everything else you've been blessed with. But sell the team to someone willing to spend some money on talent so we long suffering fans can finally enjoy the game again. Thanks.

SCC, we feel your pain. As a little girl, I watched Esposito & Co play real Black Hawk Hockey. So here are some groaners to hopefully make you laugh...

Two cannibals are eating a clown.

One says to the other: "Does this taste funny to you?"

What do you call a man with no arms and no legs stuck to the wall? Art
What do you call a lady with one leg shorter than the other? Eileen
What do you call a man with no arms and no legs floating in the water? Bob

How is a woman and a washmachine alike? They both agitate

As long as Wirtz controls the Hawks they'll continue to suck worse than the Cubs. Express your disgust with the organization,stop going to these masacres masqarading as NHL games. Maybe then he'll sell the team to somebody who cares about winning.(REINSDORF?)

I'm curious to find out if anybody has offered to buy the team. You would think that Chicago having a huge built in fan base that could be fairly easily activated would be a positive.

But then again, with 4 other major sports teams, hockey might always get the short end of the fan dollar.

Although, I'd imagine the NHL wants to see the Hawks engage the Chicago market again.

At any rate: My girlfriend's a red wings season ticket holder. At least I can sneak up there and wear a Chelios jersey.

Bring back Chico Maki, Pitt Martin, Reggie Fleming, Bill White. Heck, bring back the Chicago Cougars. At least they could play hockey.

Don't forget the Wolves who will make another try for the championship game. There are the Chicago Hounds, tied for first in the United Hockey League. they play in Hoffman Estates I think.

When they stopped making the playoffs several years ago is when I pretty much gave up. When Wirtz the drunk dumped announcer Pat Foley that was the final straw. Pat was the only reason I would (rarely) listen. The guy they hired to replace him on the radio is nothing but a hack ripoff of Pat. The 20-something year old putz that now does the TV broadcasts is God awful. Lloyd Pettit is turning in his grave.

I'm not in to sports very much but wanted to give my two cents on the Blackhawks and Wirtz.

One of my relatives has been one of Wirtz's employees for over 20 years. Wirtz has no intention of selling the Hawks because, even when they lose money it helps Wirtz write off the loss against other profit centers. And don't fool yourself, Wirtz may lose money on the gate but makes up for most of it on the concessions. It costs him 10 cents for each beer and he sells them at 5.50 - 6.50 per cup.

He's the ultimate curmudgeon and will leave the Blackhawks organization "feet first". He just doesn't care about putting together a winning team because it simply doesn't matter either way to him. He's got his finger in so many financial streams that the Hawks could lose for the next 10 years straight and it wouldn't matter a bit.

I remember being a kid and seeing the Hawks play on TV. Wirtz blacked those out so fewer and fewer younger fans are even exposed to hockey anymore. Fans should boycott the games and send a letter to Wirtz that they've had enough. If he starts losing margins on concessions and team apparel, that may get a rise out of him.

Sad to see that such a worthy and enjoyable sport has to have turds like Wirtz running the show.

Second attempt at this post, as yesterday I apparently screwed up:

I didn't exactly watch the game, although I wish now that I did. I hear it was excellent, especially since the Flyers defense finally decided to show up.

I did, however, catch the first period and watched Forsberg put one past Bouche, and it was a pretty one!

I opted for Prison Break so I could lust over Dominic Purcell.

Ya know, there was a time when I'd watch Flyers hockey over ANYTHING on TV, but I'm so disgusted with them, and the sad thing is, it's so early in the season.

Anyway, as usual, I'm yapping WAY too much.

Thanks for the mention. You gave me a big smile. :)

Be safe out there, scc.
