A Great Hockey Story


What a Great Story!!!

In the middle of a grueling six game road trip where a very young hockey team is away from home, the third game of the trip ends late on a cold Canadian Saturday night. This is the only break on the trip and the three days between games allow them the only break to get back home in their own beds for a couple of days before going back on the road. A scheduled commercial flight waits for them at Toronto 's International Airport for the short flight home. They could be home by midnight. This plane departs on schedule, but without a single member of the hockey team on board.

Earlier, back in the locker room, a vote was taken after the game and a unanimous decision is made by this young team to skip this flight and stay one more day. They make arrangements to check back in the hotel and on a frozen Sunday morning charter two buses that have no heat and begin a journey two hours straight north into a sparsely inhabited Canada , but where hockey is its passion.

They arrive at their destination to the surprise of the team's general manager who is there attending his father's wake. After a few emotional hours, this team boards the buses and head back for a two hour trip back to Toronto . On the way they ask the bus drivers to stop in a tiny Canadian town because they are hungry.

To the shock of the patrons and workers at this small hockey town McDonald's, a professional team walks out of two rickety buses and into the restaurant, which just happens to have pictures of two members of this team on its wall. The patrons know every single one of these players by sight being fanatic fans of hockey in these parts. One can only imagine their amazement of the locals seeing and entire professional hockey team sit down and have a meal in their tiny little town in the middle of a hockey season.
After a while they board the buses and catch their same flight, 24 hours later, giving one day of their time to their general manager.

Have I made this up? Is this an excerpt from some fictional book?

No this a true story of the Chicago Blackhawks last Saturday night and they decided to attend Dale Tallon's father's funeral. It's amazing that such a good story can be found nowhere on the Internet, and not even mentioned in the Chicago papers. Had one of the Blackhawks got into a fight and punched some drunken loser in a Toronto bar it would be plastered all over papers and the television.

This being said, it's hard to imagine any professional football, basketball or baseball team doing this, but the members of the Blackhawks claim any "hockey" team would have done this. This is one reason I continue to be a big hockey fan, and another reason I am excited about this Chicago team. I thought I would share this story as it appears to have gone unnoticed.

What a Great Hockey Story. Most of the players on the Team are Canadian kids. Born and raised with the values that we all sometimes forget.

Remember that we are not all destined to play hockey in the NHL but , we are all destined to take pride in our Canadian way of life and the way we are looked at for being respectful, polite, hardworking and most of all HOCKEY FANS and HOCKEY PARENTS.

Lookout Lounge food deal


Hey Joe,

Thanks for setting up the meeting last night. If was good to get everyone on the same page. Here is the deal that we agreed to go with.

When a SCOHA teams comes up, they need to show their server the little pink card. This card will now be worth a pizza and a cheese nacho no matter how many people come up. I am hoping that there will be at least 5-6 guys up from a team, but this is just something that we will have to monitor. As well on Friday's and Sunday we will offer SCOHA buy two pounds of wings and get one pound free.

Thanks again,

Mark Wilson
