27 years old, Born and raised in Chicago (55th n Pulaski) I teach English to the little ones in Malaysia, where I live with my Wife. I do make it back home to Chicago often however.
From the ages 11-15 my little bro and I would listen to every hawks game on the radio. (That's all we could do since the games weren't televised) Using cassette's we recorded every goal, big save, fight, and anthem if the game was home.
My first Hawks game my dad took me to when i was 12 he bought a blue line outside the stadium. I laughed my ass off. One specific thing I remember reading was about some rookie for the other team and Bob Probert welcoming his first NHL game buy giving him the beating of a lifetime.
My claim to fame is simply being at the game in which the Wiz beat snot out of Tootoo after the game was over, watching Amonte score from his back against Ranford of Boston, and my Hawks jersey I've had for 14 years.
