The Rockford IceHogs: Our Town, Our Team, Our Time
The boys of Rockford aren't going quietly into that good night. Last night the IceHogs won Game 4 in Overtime to stay alive in the Western Conference Finals. Tonight it's Game 5. If we can get a win it would be huge. It would put the pressure back on the Texas Stars when we travel back there for Game 6.
But. we have to win first. Even if you don't think we have a chance to come back in the series, you should still come out and enjoy the experience. It will be the last home game of the season, unless we win the series somehow. There have been plenty of, for lack of a better word, stars who have come out to enjoy the game.
Coach Q of the Blackhawks was in the house last night, but I doubt he really "enjoyed" the game. He was there to scout talent. Also, sitting right next to me, Frad VanVleet of the Toronto Raptors. He's a hometown kid so he was there to see HIS IceHogs.
You never know who you might bump into. Last time I was there, besides last night, I walked right into Jim Cornelison. I have met my fair share of famous people, but he was the only one that ever made me stutter.
The puck drops at 7 tonight and we all really hope you can make it. Be sure to wear red and get ready for a great time.
LET'S GO ICEHOGS!!!
