This is a regular series which combines my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebs. It's hot and my baseball teams are cold. Therefore, I am looking forward to the hockey season and my Blackhawks!
Jon Busch has had a lengthy career as a goalkeeper for various teams in Major League Soccer. He had a three year stint with the Chicago Fire, including the 2008 season in which he was the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year. I wonder if he would do just as well putting them in the net for the Hawks.
Lee Archambault is a native of the Chicago area (Oak Park to be specific) and is a lifelong Hawks fan. A while back, he traded in his spacesuit for a Hawks jersey for a mid-game promotion . No, I won't make any jokes about putting the puck into space, but I will point out his jersey number. Is it #11 or #19? Actually, I believe it is neither. I think it was #119, in honor of STS-119, Archambault's first mission as commander of a Space Shuttle. While we will probably never see a triple-digit jersey number in pro sports (the XFL should have done it), at least we see one on a Celeb Jersey Card!
