(My theme for the A-Z challenge is places, things and people around Chicago)
While Chicago has two major ice hockey teams, The Wolves (AHL) and The Blackhawks (NHL), I only just started following the Blackhawks. I am not totally new to hockey, however. I used to follow ice hockey in Germany in the 1980s. However, when I moved to America I ended up in Michigan and that would have meant following the Detroit Red Wings, I guess, but it never happened. Well, Tom likes the Blackhawks so I got sucked into following the sport again.
Points of interest: The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup two years ago after decades of not doing so, and recently made the national news for having a historic 24-game point streak. So, that was interesting to follow. They also secured a spot in this year’s playoffs already. It’s not as interesting as Nascar to me, but it will do!
