Blackhawks Hoist the Cup at the UC

Photos taken from 11 rows up in section 312and when we walked down to the 100 level after the Cup ceremony.

I didn’t go to a Blackhawk hockey game until I was in college. You could pin me as part of the generation …

Blackhawks @ Soldier Field

Well, that happened.  When we saw this was going to be on March 1st, we weren’t sure what to expect for the weather.  That time of year in Chicago could have gone either way.  Of course it went the way off windy, snowy, and cold.

Our tickets were in the south end zone, and the wind was blowing from the north off the lake right into our faces.  We were already …

Bears Press Pass day @ Soldier Field

Tribune Media Group hosted a Press Pass day at Soldier Field on Tuesday, October 5th. Much like the Sox Park Press Pass day, it included a stadium tour through the fancy seats, the visitors locker room, on the field, and a dinner & panel discussion. This one featured Super Bowl champion Keith Van Horne and current Bears QB Caleb Hanie. Fun night….

White Sox press pass day @ Sox Park

Tribune Media Group hosted a Press Pass day at Sox Park on Sunday, July 25. Wasn’t sure what to expect, but I had a trip walking through the ball park. Winding from the Scout Seats lounge area, out to the field behind home plate, down into the visitors dugout & locker room area, and then up to the Stadium Club for some …

Me & the Cup

Been less than a month now since the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup, and I think I’ve played Kaner’s game winning goal 1,000 times on TiVo.Since the Hawks brought home the Cup, I’ve managed to see it three times:  once in the parade, once in the Tribune newsroom during it’s media tour day, and once at the United Center during …

JR

When the Hawks announced they were going to have a Jeremy Roenick heritage night, I knew that I was going to go to that game.  The Blackhawks under new management really go nuts with these gimmick nights (can’t wait for Sergei Krivokrasov night!), but it was nice to see JR back in a Hawk sweater, one even he admits he should never have been removed from (thanks old management)….

South Shore Ride

Part of my training for the big Bike Ireland trip coming up in September is riding as much as I can while at home.  The way I feel after 20 miles this afternoon, I still have a long way to go.  Although, the 16 mph winds didn’t help much, but they sure made it fun watching the waves on Lake Michigan.

Started my …

And being a firm believer in “you get what you pay for”, I knew I wasn’t getting anything THAT great. But then after the camera arrived in the mail I thought to myself “ok, now what?”
