Flashback, 1991, Chicago Stadium, NHL All-Star Game

Just a reminder incase anyone doesn't remember.

Chicago Blackhawks hockey at the Chicago Stadium out-classed any other venue. I'm feeling nostalgic and patriotic all at the same time.

Thank you Wayne Messmer and God Bless.

Chicago, we did that.

Chicago, we raised the hairs on the backs of Americans nation-wide in support of our troops.

Chicago, we led the cheers in voices unmuted.

Chicago, we gave an authentic, un-lip-synched shout out to the men and women protecting us.

Chicago, we showed sincerity.

Chicago, be proud.

Chicago, I was proud to be an American that day.

Chicago, I was proud of you.

Well, that got me appropriately fired up for tonight's trip to the UC. Of course, it may be a let down when my two buddies and I represent 33% of the total crowd. But it's along road back to the mountain top, right?

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, that WAS blackhawk hockey as it was presented to me as a child, toddler, and teenager. Now, that I am an adult NONE of the people that I take now will wvwe be able to witness this, unless we as the "old dogs" bring it back ourselves.
LET'S GO HAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Proud to be a Chicagoan? Okay.
Proud to be an American? Why not.
It was just too bad we had to support Willie Wirtz to enjoy those moments.
Still, the players are trying, the ones not already broken in pieces.
Go Blackhawks. There, I said it.

The greatest national anthem in sport's history. Maybe followed closely by the first time Messmer sang it and the fans started the cheering back around '85 playoff time. Pelico on the old Stadium organ...the memories...

Its never been done better and the crowd has never been louder. Its still the greatest thing I have ever seen at a sporting event. Messmer is the greatest anthem singer of all-time.
