2015 Stanley Cup Champions!

As a little boy, I lived and died with the Chicago Blackhawks. From having my brother Tom take me to meet Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita to being one of Keith Magnuson's "bodyguards" when he visited the local Jewel grocery store, the Blackhawks have always been part of my life.

Chicago won no major professional sports championships from 1964 to 1985. In 1986, the Bears won Super Bowl XX and the streak was broken. Then the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan gave Chicago its first sports dynasty with six championships in eight years in the 1990's. Those were heady years.

There was a drought until the White Sox won the World Series in 2005. Then, after some terrible years, the Blackhawks misery owner died, his son took over, and the rest is history. Three championships in the past six seasons -- and in five years.

The Hawks had all that they could handle with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Look for the Lightning to be hoisting the Cup themselves sometime in the next few years.

So tonight - a celebration. Life is good. Very good.

Thanks a lot.

So I guess your handle isn't because you're a big Tampa Bay lightning fan, huh?

Now it's time for the Cubbies to do something. They could do it.
