Lil' Buddy's Blog - Chicago is Blackhawk Town Now . . . No Matter Which Side of Town You Come From - North Side or South Side!

THE CHICAGO IL REAL ESTATE MARKET, AND OTHER THINGS CHICAGO, FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF A LITTLE WHITE DOG!

Buddy Holly Moss Formal PhotoHey, you dogs! 

You know, for as long as I have been around - and I'm nearly 5 years old now - there has always been two sides to Chicago, my home town, and my fave city.

There's the South Side.  And there is the North Side.

And, as you may know, I am a North Side Dog!  True and True!  Bluer than blue!

In this weekend of the Chicago Crosstown Baseball Classic, you likely know where my loyalties lie - with the Men in Blue.  Those Chicago Cubs, and their North Side Baseball Haunt of Beautiful Wrigley Field.

What???  Some of you dogs like the Chicago White Sox?  Those Pale Hose?   What have they done for your lately . . .  except, perhaps, win the World Series, just about five years ago!

The Cubs?  You know they won the World Series too, you know!  It's just that nobody alive today - canine or human - can remember that feat.  It happened a while ago, you see.  A long while!  1908, to be exact.  101 years ago!

So, folks . . . is there any common sports ground that both we North Siders, and you South Siders, can truly share.

Indeed, there is - The Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks!  Last week, our Beloved Hawks brought home Lord Stanley Mikita's Cup for the first time since our Team Leader, Dean Moss, was about my age.  That was 1961!  Back in those crazy hockey days, no real goalie wore a mask.  And no player would don a helmet!

Truly, a long time ago!

But tonight, at Wrigley Field in Chicago, before the final game of the Crosstown Classic on the Northside. The Hawks brought the Stanley Cup home to Cubs Fans.  And White Sox Fans.  And all of Chicago!

They posed for an incredible picture on the Wrigley Field pitchers mound.  The photo, featured in this Chicago Tribune story tonight by Dave Van Dyck, will live in our hearts and minds forever.. 

The Chicago Cubs won the game tonight.  Cub Left-Handed Pitcher Ted Lilly nearly pitched a No Hitter.

But most Chicago Fans in the stands tonight at Wrigley were thinking hockey.  And a Championship Victory.

And it really didn't matter what side of town you came from!

Chicago . . . be proud!  We won, and it's not very often that happens around here.

Go Hawks!  Congratulations on bringing the Stanley Cup back home to Chicago!
