Beard Of The Day – April 20th – Tony Magee



Most of you are probably getting ready to celebrate Easter with your family, and rightfully so. However, to other people, this is a different holiday all together. One strong proponent of the less than legal aspect of the day is Lagunitas brewery founder, Tony Magee. Tony actually grew up in Rogers Park and the suburbs, and lets face it, Rogers Park is pretty much a suburb already. However, music took him out to California. While out there, Tony fell in love with craft beer and in 1993 took his homebrewing to the next level and opened a small craft brewery.

So where do we begin? The first 30 minutes? The last 30 minutes period? The last 6 seconds? The overtime? The hit? I’m really not sure. This felt like about 4 games in one and there’s likely still about four more games left.

I’ll just get right to my thoughts. Apologies for the randomness as I’m still a bit scatterbrained after experiencing that.

GOOD GOD DON’T GO HERE: St. Louis Gametime

Guessing the legs will still be a little sore even two days after playing a game and two-thirds, but the Hawks will have to find the juice anyway as they look to even this series. While it’s not absolutely vital it would certainly behoove them to do so. I had hoped that the Hawks could jump on what had to be a fragile team after St. Louis’s finish to the season and get them questioning themselves from jump street. They couldn’t do that, so the challenge gets a little tougher with the Blues finding their feet a little. Certainly Ryan Miller will take a lot out of his performance in the last four periods of Game 1.

Beard Of The Day – April 19th – Brian Blessed

Actor And Adventurer Brian Blessed-1736236So yeah, the Hawks dropped Game 1 in a pretty awful fashion. They need to come back tougher and maybe just a bit weirder than before. So who better than Brain Blessed to inspire them. Not only is his beard out of this world, he’s also led a life most of us couldn’t even dream of. Who else could have claimed to have sparred with the Dalai Lama and had several attempts to climb Everest. From outstanding acting to extreme adventurer, Blessed is the spirit the Hawks should draw inspiration from.
