A Message of Thanks

First off, congratulations to the Golden State Warriors for accomplishing the NBA Championship. A 40-year drought complete with the league MVP and a great depth, worthy of basketball’s mountain top.

However, I’m from Chicago, born and bred, so proud of my roots. This week, 17 years after celebrating an NBA title, there’s a new dynasty two decades later. From the Bulls of the 1990s to the Blackhawks of the 2010s.

Three Stanley Cup Championships since 2010, the standard for all NHL teams.

However, people have to know just how far this Blackhawks organization has come from. A good ten years ago, not drawing any people to 22,000 plus every game, to radio only for home contests to high TV ratings for all games.

They market, but above all else they have the right people in place from the front office to the coaching staff to the product on the ice.

I guess there’s nothing more to say expect, Thank You Rocky Wirtz.
