This One Hurts

from Rick Telander of the Chicago Sun-Times,

Chicago, pack your (body) bags.

Not for a trip to New York for the Stanley Cup Final against the upstart Rangers. That would have been too much fun.

Nope, pack ’em for a long summer off, with only the Cubs (gag), the White Sox (zzzz), the Bulls (not playing), the Bears (lifting weights) and the echo of might-have-been to sustain us.

In yet another thrilling overtime game, the Kings beat the Hawks 5-4, sticking the (Chelsea) dagger deep into our beloved hockey team’s heart. Once again, a 2-0 lead did not hold up for the Hawks, who lost Game 2 after being up two goals.

This one was tougher to take than that collapse because the Hawks were ahead in this game 2-0, then 3-2, then 4-3, before losing on Alec Martinez’s shot that glanced off the Hawks’ Nick Leddy and over goalie Corey Crawford’s shoulder 5:47 into overtime.

Im sure all 3 of the fans that knew you had a hockey team before 2008 are heartbroken.
