I've got the NFL, I live in a Big Ten city - college football, college hockey about to start, MLB playoffs are just about to start. My kid's hockey season is about to start and then there's hunting and the holidays just around the corner. And don't forget the Hobbit movie in December.
Add all of that to the Hawks miserable non offseason of getting nothing done and I'm not overly excited or anxious for the season to start anyway. I can wait.
As for the national media or politicians... seriously? Niche sport. NEVER gonna happen.
Check back in January and I'll be gripping.
PS - Now if I thought we were poised for another Cup, I might feel differently, but we're not. We're the same team as last year and that's not gonna get it done.
I'm sorry but saying you're a hard core Hawks fan & you barely care in the same sentence doesn't add up. Hawks are my favorite team to watch and attend games. NHL is my favorite sport to watch other than Football. The only reason I watch NFL teams other than the Bears is fantasy. The "Hawks didn't do enough in the offseason" excuse is lame. If Kane, Hossa, Toews, Sharp, Keith, Saad and Teevo don't get you excited then you will never be hard core. Stating that the team has to be poised for another cup run reeks of bandwagon.
I have attended the 1st preseason and 1st regular season game the past four years. So yeah, now I feel like I'm missing out. People don't tend to post on this board unless their passionate about Hockey.
Yes, there is other things to pull your interest. I could care less about the Bulls and Football is only Sunday. Thursday night games have been pretty crappy.
