I recently had the good fortune to be a guest of General Motors’ Driving the Midwest at a year-end celebration of their “Our Town, Our Heroes” program, which spotlights Illinois folks who donate their time and resources to people and causes in need and “drive positive change in the community”.
The event happened to take place in a Penthouse-level suite at United Center during a Chicago Blackhawks game. Much like the time I got invited to watch a Cubs game from a rooftop, watching a (2010 Stanley Cup Champions) Blackhawks game from the eighth floor in total luxury was something I have never before experienced, and appreciated from the depths of my being. IT ROCKED, you guys.
That being said, as a Chicagoan, I am 100% sure you don’t have to be enjoying the game from a Penthouse-level suite to feel like your heart is exploding with hometown pride when the Blackhawks score and “Chelsea Dagger” starts playing over the loudspeakers. The jumping up and down is the same.
