Blackhawks Win The Stanley Cup

One from the Ship to all fans:

Yeah now,  this couldn't a come at a better time for Chicago.  This has to be one for the record books, all the teams throughout the series played tough, many games going into overtime.  The thing I find here is how so many of us unit for a team effort.  Defeat is a bugger but the desire is the same.   All the faces and support from the community, sponsors, local business the networks and right down to the Zamboni Machine.  Like how cool is that, cleaning the ice at the Stanley Cup Playoffs!  All of it is a rush and Chicago is on a high, thanks to a game that brought people together from around the globe and cheered on the home team.  One fellow from Ottawa Illinois suffered a heart attack while watching the playoffs and while in the hospital the with TV airing the game on all floors his heart monitor was off the charts.  His response was, "you guys have to win your killing me literally".

Then there's the Spirit in all of this. Black Hawk (1767 – October 3, 1838) was a leader and warrior of the Sauk American Indian tribe in what is now the United States. Although he had inherited an important historic medicine bundle, he was not one of the Sauk's hereditary civil chiefs. His status came from leading war parties as a young man, and from his leadership of a band of Sauks during the Black Hawk War of 1832.


During the War of 1812, Black Hawk fought on the side of the British. Later he led a band of Sauk and Fox warriors, known as the British Band, against European-American settlers in Illinois and present-day Wisconsin in the 1832 Black Hawk War. After the war, he was captured and taken to the eastern U.S., where he and other leaders toured several cities. Black Hawk died in 1838 in what is now southeastern Iowa. He left behind an enduring legacy through many eponyms and other tributes.  The Blackhawks and all the teams played like warriors.

Now for some more morale, now for whatever team you're on the ice-mates are easy on the eyes.
