I know where my vote is going, partly because he couldn't be any worse than the current crop of candidates and mainly because I don't want to be on the "other side" when he starts making katana shish-kabobs out of the opposition.

For those in the group adventurous enough to head down 57 looking for a good burger, and who didn't see my public post, here's a link to Burgers and Beer in Kankakee. Went for the first time yesterday after seeing +Dan DeBord 's many posts and it was epic. Everything from mild to wild and I personally have never seen a longer beer list. Highly recommended. Wish I'd have taken a pic of the giant soft pretzel appetizer, it was the size of a Giordano's deep dish! Amazing!

31 games to go - A few predictions
Hard to believe we're hitting the home stretch of the regular season already! I've stated before that the regular season doesn't matter much as any indicator of post-season success, it's all about just getting in the big dance and seeing where the chips fall. That said, I have been eyeballing the standings and remaining schedule, mainly just out of curiosity, and a few thoughts about where the Hawks will finish.

Last year, the Hawks finished 4th in the West with 102 points and a 48-28-6 record. The Hawks as of right now are first in the West with 68 points and a 32-15-4 record, thanks to the 24 straight points 12 game winning streak. That's the good news.
The bad news is the Hawks have 51 games in hand, several more than it's two biggest rivals in the conference. The Dallas Stars have only played 48 games, and the Los Angeles Kings are a whopping 5 behind in the schedule at 46. While all those games likely won't translate to points, especially with the way Dallas has played of late, it's still ground that can be made up while the Hawks are idle. The not-so-bad news is those teams will have busier schedules going into the home stretch, so the Hawks may be a bit better rested come playoff time.

If everything works out to it's averages, I'm predicting the Hawks will finish somewhere at the 51-52 win mark and 107-108 points or so, which will likely be good for second in the Western Conference, barring a complete Hawks collapse or an opponent(s) hot streak.
For those doing the math: If the Hawks finish these last 31 games at 19-11-1, their record would be 51-26-5, good for 107 points. Having said that, the Hawks will have to finish the season better this year than they have the last 2 seasons, going 4-6 and 5-5 respectively in the last 10 games of the year. Nothing like a little pre-playoff panic for us, eh? For those that care, this would give the Hawks home ice for the first two rounds of the playoffs. I don't believe it matters, home ice is only good if you win one of the first two games anyway and when the Hawks are at their playoff best it doesn't matter who's rink it is.

Out of all the teams in the West race, I still believe the road to the cup will go through LA, though there's an outside shot that Dallas rights the ship come playoff time. Then again, 30+ games is a lot and any of the top 10 teams can get hot and surprise us all.
That's the beauty of hockey.

Potential Blackhawks Community Meetup (South/North)?
Was thinking the Stadium Series game onSunday, February 21st at 2:30 would be a good opportunity to try and meetup again. I'm south so obviously I'd like to do one not too awful far from home, but that's not to say that the northern crew can't plan their own in their neck of the woods.
What say you all? Site suggestions?

This WAS the Sweet Ringer. 1/2# Angus Beef, a brown sugar glazed pineapple ring, Swiss, applewood smoked bacon and grilled onions.
She put up a good fight, but in the end I prevailed. Don't think it'll be too long before a rematch is scheduled. #burgersandbeer

 I think I'll recommend a friend who has an excavating service to Mr. Legere, apparently he enjoys digging big holes for himself...
Replying to an inquiry from the EFF with "Who the f*!k are you?". Really?
I've been patiently waiting for T-Mo to better their service here so I could switch from Big Red, now I believe I can cross that off my list.

Story
Tagline
Hopeless geek, gadget freak, past my peak, almost antique...Supporter of all things Google, the Chicago Blackhawks and Bacon.
Introduction
Spent most of my life in small-town Illinois (Milford and currently Watseka). Did the big city thing for awhile, too busy/stressful and not my cup of tea. Happily married for 11 years and counting, 2 great kids and a house that needs too much work.
Most happy when I'm using my creativity-designing, building, repairing, drawing and photographing-anything and everything. Life is best spent in well-worn jeans and a comfy t-shirt, with good friends, good food and cold beers.
