Ice Time

Hockey is alive and well in Chicago. The Blackhawks are in 2nd place and are one of the best and youngest teams in the NHL. The Wolves are tied for 4th, but only 1 point out of 2nd and are always late bloomers. These are exciting days for hockey fans here.
Rob Brown is a former player for both the Hawks and the Wolves (and the Hartford Whalers, the Dallas Stars, The Los Angeles Kings and the Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL). Brown had 2 tours of duty with the Wolves. He was one of the most popular players.
I had the chance to meet Brown at the AllState Arena when the Wolves brought him in for a signing between periods. Because of his popularity (even years after he retired), I did not have a chance to talk to him very long. The crowd was insane. Maybe I'll go have a conversation with my Rob Brown bobblehead. (It wouldn't be the first time.)
