All of these #WhatsYourGoal videos are just phenomenal and show how amazing the entire Chicago Blackhawks organization is. So many teams have so many issues at so many different levels, from NCAA programs constantly in scandal (hey Rick Pitino and all those escorts!) to FIFA as an executive whole ($ > ethics and maybe even the lives of workers in Qatar) to the Dallas Cowboys, who suck all the way from the bottom to the top (see: Jerry Jones, Greg Hardy, and [lack of] playoff success). Even though the Blackhawks aren't without issues (the Kane assault allegations last season only recently declared "unfounded" were a major distraction, to say the least), they are such a cream of the crop organization. This video made me so happy and excited about our team. The best coach in the league went to a senior home with pretty much the entire Blackhawks broadcasting crew and put on a pickup hockey game. Yes, it's filmed, but it's not about publicity. The Blackhawks actually care about the fans, community, and sport at large. That's why they do so much. Look how happy all of the players in this "old time hockey" game are. It's just so overall nice and fun. I've watched this video five or six times now and every time it gives me the goosebumps and makes me all tingly. Go Blackhawks baby, that's the stuff!
Also, I found out about this video from my dad. He called me this morning and told me to watch it ASAP. I love how much the Blackhawks light everyone up, even my dad who's out on the road for work yet still squeezes it in.
Also also, one of my biggest fears is getting old. Dying and/or being old terrifies me deep at my core. These seniors in this video are having so much fun, are so happy, and look so good, though, that I'm not as scared about it. What a blessing to still be so physically and mentally with it in your later years. Good for them. They're pretty inspirational about staying healthy. I bet if you sat down with these guys and cracked into a case of Old Style they'd have some world-class stories. They look like a great bunch.
Also also also, no, we're not winning a lot right now, but people need to relax about the Hawks. This team is too good to doubt. It's not the playoffs yet and Coach Q has a plan. He always does and it's going to play out. Trust in the plan.
Also x4, all of the #WhatsYourGoal and other BHTV videos are just awesome and touching. Each one's well worth checking out:
I love this team. We're coming at you again this year, Lord Stanley!
