Ray Ray Road watch, And the first picture of the Cup 2013
The choice was simple, With my kids..... My son is an athlete, My cassie the youngest is a nut. She made posters and had her Hawks pillow pets all lined up. It was "Game on"
It was around February when Conner was hurt bad in a wrestling accident, The Blackhawks called and asked "How can they help" My reply was my kid is a huge fan of Andrew Shaw, can he give him a quick call? The answer was yes and he now has a fan for life.
But to me the real question is how did he know, Shaw is a newcomer, But my kid was quick to recognize his skills, and work ethic, He loved that he was a scrapper, and never backs down. His mom raises him with compassion, I raise him with a don't take crap attitude. Always be polite but be firm.
I think that I see a lot of Shaw in my kid, and I love it. that kind of passion will take you a long way no matter what you choose to do in this trip around the sun.
I'm still learning from his mom, She tells me to believe, That's something I need to do more. Believe. I'm working on that!
Sometime this week I will retire my 99 sweater and get a Shaw one, Just like Adam Burish he embodies Chicago, He's tough, He can show the other so-called stars in this town how to walk with a swagger.
To the US99.5 Fans that have been calling in on this Stanly Cup ride you are awesome , Not sure how many more years I have Round here. But your my extended family. When we got to the Hawks party this morning you guys welcomed Lisa and I like we played last night. That's something that some radio guys will never feel. Thank you....
enjoy the party's and the Parades, Were doing stuff that a lot of our parents never had a chance to see. I hope we can Get one for Cubs fans soon, Although I'm a sox fan,it would just make this city go nuts, And Cub fans you deserve this feeling.
And as far as Andrew Shaw, Come to think of it I see a little bit of my kid in him! And that's the biggest compliment I can give the guy.
Congrats to The 2013 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks!
