1/17/96…Chicago Blackhawks vs. Washington Capitals @ United Center, Chicago

Scan 2

I went to a Blackhawks game??  During the 90’s the only team I was locked in on was the Bulls.  So why did I go to this game, you ask??  Well, in my job at the time I had a lot of interaction with sales vendors.  While we were no longer “allowed” to accept gifts from these vendors, when I was invited to this Blackhawks game by one of my watch vendors, I couldn’t say no.  I had never been to a hockey game before, let alone a Hawks game!  Unfortunately since I didn’t really like the guy who asked me to go and I didn’t understand a thing about hockey, I didn’t really enjoy this game too much.  Luckily he invited me AND a friend, so I wasn’t completely on my own.  My friend and I entertained ourselves by talking to each other and drinking a lot of beer.  Sadly the Hawks didn’t fare much better in this situation and ended up losing the game 2-3 to the Capitals.  All I can say is that it was an experience!
