Day Seven - Take the Attack, Yeah, and We'll Back You Blackhawks

Tonight the Blackhawks take on the Predators in Game Six of the first round of the NHL Western Conference Playoffs. The game is in Nashville and the Hawks have the chance to win a tough series 4 games to 2. Back in Chicago, the City has added a little detail to the Chicago Picasso sculpture in Daley Plaza (in the background, you see the Daley Center, where I spend several hours a week litigating in the Circuit Court of Cook County). Installed in 1967, the sculpture was a gift to the City of Chicago (after being commissioned by by the Daley Center architects). I've learned that the steel for the Picasso was fabricated by the American Bridge Company, the very same company that gave the name to my mother's home town, Ambridge, Pennsylvania, in 1905.

I digress. The puck drops on Game 6 in about 10 minutes. I have to go put on my Indian Head Sweater and park it in front of the TV. Here's to hoping the Blackhawks ride the momentum of a crazy Game 5 and close out the Preds tonight. Go Hawks.
