My name’s Michelle and I was born and raised on the southwest side of Chicago. I first stumbled upon hockey in 1992 when the Hawks were in the Stanley Cup Finals. I remember watching Roenick and Chelios and fell in love not only with the Hawks but the with the great sport. My appreciation of the sport grew when I got to play the goalie position for a hockey game in high school gym class. I thought, “This is awesome!”
Nine years ago I moved to a suburb of Chicago. My fiance introduced me to new aspects of hockey and my passion soared to new heights. He taught me how to shoot a wicked slap shot and introduced me to Hockey Night in Canada. We love to watch games together even though I tend to get a little rowdy. I love to talk about hockey with the customers at my job and they now understand my knowledge of the NHL and the Blackhawks is not just sensationalized bandwagon jargon but the real deal.
What do I love about hockey? The players. The speed. The excitement. The toughness. The fights. The skill involved. The passion. The teamwork and the camaraderie. I love when the Hawks score. I love when the Hawks win.
Some of the players I like to follow both past and present: Jeremy Roenick, Chris Chelios, Wayne Gretzky, Enrico Ciccone,  Peter Forsberg, Jonathan Toews, Antti Niemi, Nikolai Khabibulin, Marc-Andre Fleury, Sidney Crosby, Sheldon Souray, Jerome Iginla and the Staal brothers.
I’m excited to be able to share a little of my passion for the game with you and I look forward to following the Hawks for a long time to come.
