When They Were Good

from the Chicago Daily Herald,

Today, in the first installment of our three-part series on the Hawks, we look back on a time when the franchise meant something in the city — and Chicagoans overflowed with pride when wearing that Indian head sweater.
’60s and the last Cup
It has been 46 years since the Hawks won the Stanley Cup.
That’s three years before the Beatles came to America, three years before the Ford Mustang hit the roads, eight years before man walked on the moon.
Yes, it has been a long time.
Newspapers looked different, too. Today there are special sections when a team reaches the playoffs — back then The Chicago Daily Tribune devoted only about 60 percent of its front page to the Hawks when they clinched the Cup with a 5-1 victory over Detroit.
