NHL All- Star Game Coming to Chicago Soon?
(Chicago Tribune) – “NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said Thursday that the Chicago Blackhawks are being considered to host a future NHL All-Star Game. Chicago hasn’t hosted the event since 1991 and Bettman said during a meeting at the NHL offices in New York that Hawks President John McDonough has been in contact about bringing the showcase to the United Center. “Chicago has been pushing us,” Bettman said. “John McDonough, as he pushed us very hard on the Winter Classic (in 2009) — and we’re glad he did — (has) expressed interest certainly in another All-Star Game. Generally don’t go all that far out but they’re on the radar screen. We’re not ready to fix dates. The good news is, we have a ton of interest for our events. That makes for good problems in trying to decide where, but Chicago has expressed an interest.”
Make it happen McDonough. Chicago is a perfect place for the All-Star game. Smack dab right in the middle of the country. I myself attended the 03 MLB All-Star Game at the Cell and it was great for the city. Would love to see this.
One of the best National Anthems ever!
