I don’t have a lot to say about tonight’s game between the Blackhawks and the Canucks, other than it was a great time, and an amazing atmosphere for a game. I got some audio from the opening of the game, but I’m not sure if it’s usable, since the people around me were going ape-s#!+ the entire time. This is a city that loves their hockey team, which wasn’t the case a few short years ago.
My seats were great for watching a hockey game, but not so great for taking pictures. This game, though, I was more interested in the game than getting pictures from it. Still, I did get a few.
The United Center is big and imposing form the outside.
This is not this man’s real hair:
The UC is big. Really big.
Warm-ups. It’s always weird when a player is looking in your general direction when you are taking their picture:
The crowd goes wild:
They gave us red towels to waive for the game, but some of them didn’t make it home with their owners after the third Blackhawks goal:
Really, there isn’t a lot to say. You watched the game, right? The short handed goal, the Canuck players bouncing off Byfuglien, it was all it looked like on TV and more.
The Blackhawks would like to remind you that there are only 11 wins until the cup can be theirs.
