From The Blue Line To The Committed Indian

Longtime Blackhawks fans – those with memories that can stretch from at least Ed Belfour – fondly recall a dirtsheet/newsletter/gossip rag called The Blue Line. As a Hawks fan growing up in San Jose, I’ve never actually seen one of these, just heard about their mythical status while chatting about the Hawks on old Usenet forums back in the mid-90s.

While writer/lawyer Mark Weinberg (author of Career Misconduct, the scathing take on Dollar Bill Wirtz) doesn’t put out The Blue Line anymore, a few fellows over at Second City Hockey are reviving the tradition with The Committed Indian. It’s a combination pre-game program, The Onion-style satire, and awesome statistics (e.g. Hawks record when the PA plays PJ Harvey: 0-0-0,  Hawks record when Toews tries to hard: 3-3-2).  You can preview the inaugural issue from a few weeks back here.

For tonight’s issue, the Committed Indian folks have asked me to provide some commentary (f-bombs allowed) about the Sharks. You can pick up your copy outside of the United Center at tonight’s Hawks/Sharks game.
