I Actually Like the St. Louis Blues
I know there’s a lot of hate going around from Blackhawks fans towards the St. Louis Blues. Sure, it’s becoming a nice rivalry, but sheesh. I find it pretty astounding, actually. I really don’t mind them.
For instance, look at that picture up there of David Backes making out with Ryan Reaves, who is being held by the lovely Barret Jackman. It’s quite obvious how much they care about each other and support each other. They always have each others’ backs and have great chemistry, especially Jackman and goaltender Jaroslav Halak.
Jackman catches a lot of flak, but he’s actually a very classy individual. I remember that one time he tried to have a nice, calm, intelligent conversation with the Blackhawks bench last season. I’m sure he wasn’t complaining or acting like one of those cracked-out menopausal homeless women that sleep under the Arch whom he has sex with on a regular basis. He was simply trying to say, “Hello, how are you?” And look how he was treated:
And all that talk about how the Blues take cheap shots at people? Especially against the Blackhawks? C’mon. Backes is the epitome of a captain and great teammate. I remember that time when he simply tried to give Jonathan Toews a pat on the back for a job well done, and then Toews just flipped out for absolutely no reason. I mean, of course Backes is going to try to defend himself.
And who can say enough about their coach, Ken Hitchcock. Despite playing stout defense that by no means features a bunch of thugs on skates trying to make up for their lack of skill like everyone claims, he quite obviously has them all under control.
St. Louis is a high-end organization from top to bottom. They’re so very welcoming to everyone, especially Blackhawks fans. Sure, they have that new ticket policy to try and prevent ‘Hawks fans from getting tickets to games at that luxurious stadium of theirs, but can you blame them?
Why would they want us unruly Blackhawks fans mingling with dedicated Blues fans like these:
No wonder they don’t want us idiot ‘Hawks fans there. The people of St. Louis are some of the smartest in the country:
I mean, look at how much there is to like.
