Mikita, Hull, and Savard will be there.  Also some guy that is a Cubs fan.

I don't know how I feel about an aquigley headline that doesn't include "Book it. Done.".
 
2013-04-29 12:03:18 PM
I wonder what they are doing in Toronto?
 
2013-04-29 12:04:22 PM
As a "thank you" to the adoring fans, a booth has been set up where children can pay 20 cents to watch Hawks star Patrick Kane pitilessly and savagely beat an elderly cab driver.

Probably parading the Cup around downtown again.

You're a few years late to the party on that one there champ. C- for effort, I guess.

Booked it, but not done.
 
2013-04-29 12:14:14 PM
Let's go Wild!!!
 
2013-04-29 12:17:27 PM
I'm looking out the window and it looks like there's a few people out there.

I'll probably start texting quigley pictures of my dick soon.

You have to actually score goals to win the cup.

No I'm not.

So that's what that is. I went by it on the bus this morning and was intrigued because they had speakers on an old cop car like in Blue Brothers.

i know it's not very daring of me, but i opted for the hawks to win it on my NHL bracket.

/expecting the penguins to continue their first-round out tradition...

The Hawks have a recent tradition of bowing out in the quarters as well.  Also something about a curse and the Presidents' Trophy.

Yeah, celebrating the President's Trophy with a rally is spitting on NHL tradition.  What the heck is quigs thinking?

OK this is really awkward but I think that might be someone else's dick.

Nothing, seriously. They have a few fans dressed up trying to win tix, but mostly it's quiet at the ACC. Considering tickets are reselling for $9000 a pop I thought there'd be more.


Not surprizing, most of their fans the people who fill the seats are working on Bay street, the market is still open.

2-0-1 Jim from Saint Paul and jbc.  It will be a good series as your Wild are tough.
 
2013-04-29 12:53:59 PM
Please keep that "Minnesota Nice" going after the Hawks sweep the Wild.  It'd be a shame if you get all kinds of flustered, don't cha know...

They did kind of sneak into the playoffs.  I am just sad that they are no longer the eighth seed to face the mighty Blackhawks.  That would be a fun spanking as they will be in different conferences next season.

yeah, but part of me is rooting for them cause they've played fabulously this season, and it'd be a shame to see that go to waste.

having said that, it'll be one of the teams that barely broke 50/50 w/l that sweeps the playoffs and curbstomps the other team in the finals.

so prolly the rangers then.


/rangers fan
//would really like a chance to look brad richards in the eye and ask 'what the ever-loving fark are you doing, captain, leading them to THIS?' for the disaster of a season they had.

Did anyone say "Fark the Canucks" at least? Glad you had a good time.

Couldn't make it around the bend today aquigley, see you at the parade.

Can it be tomorrow night already?
 
2013-04-29 02:26:29 PM
What the hell, here are my predictions for the East. I have no clue about the West.

Bruins in 6.
Rangers in 7.
Pittsburg in 5.
With Carey Price in net, Ottawa in 6. 
With Peter Budaj in net, Habs in 7.

Ive been teasing my friend about missing this. She is a die hard hawks fan. And I guess today is her boyfriend Toews birthday and she forgot. Not as good of a stalker fan as she thought I guess.

I always take out my frustration with my team, not who they are playing or their fans.

Unless you count that whole "Overtime in the 2009 NFC Championship game" thing. Then fark robsul82 and his brood.

Worse case: Blackhawks in 5. We have played well against Chicago and well on the road the last months too. I just don't see a sweep.

Best case: Blackhwaks in 7.

OMGWTFBBQ case: WILD WIN! WILD WIN! WILD WIN!

After going to the last Hawks/Wild game at the Xcel, I was surprised at how dominating the Wild were in terms of hits and aggressive play. Minnesota players were laying out hits left and right.

As part of a non-profit group, I help run the "Philly Cheessteak" stand on the main floor.

Chicago fans are one of the most prevelant "road" fans this year.

It's probably easier and cheaper to get tickets for away games rather than taking it dry at the UC.  For me, Saint Paul is closer and I hate driving in Chicago.
