Me and sitting on the couch watching sports don't usually get along, unless it is a Chicago Blackhawks game.

When the news broke this week that the Blackhawks organization was going to sign Bryan Bickell to a one-day contract so that he could retire as a Blackhawk, I was bursting with pride for our home team. Then I saw this highlight from last night's season and home opener, and my cup runneth over.


Yep. I'm still all teary-eyed. Enjoy retirement, Bryan Bickell, and thank you for the amazing memories. Go take care of you!
