We love the Blackhawks...almost everything about them (even Brian Campbells unnecessary spin-o-ramas). One of our favorite things is when the fans cheer boisterously during Jim Cornelisons powerful rendition of the national anthem. This was a truly unique thing to the world of sports and as far as we know something that only happened at Chicago Blackhawk games.
To our surprise, when we turned on the Bears/Seahawks game last weekend, Mr. Cornelison was front and center getting ready to show off his voice. As he started, Chicago fans knew what to do. Right on cue, they immediately started cheering:
Is this becoming a Chicago tradition and not simply a Blackhawk tradition? From reports we read earlier in the week, Mr. Cornelison will be back at Soldier field for the Bears/Packers game on Sunday. Hopefully he can bring some of the Blackhawks good luck from last year to Soldier Field and bring home another playoff victory for the Bears.
