The Blackhawks are a hot ticket in Chicago right now. There’s a waiting list for season tickets that will take about a decade to get through if you sign up right now. Sometimes we forget how quickly everything turned around. But this morning I was trying to delete an old Yahoo email account when I came across this old email from the Hawks sales department. It reads a bit awkward and minor league-ish. They practically beg you to go to a game. So here it is in all its glory:
From Jonathan Toews, Center, #19
Thanks for coming to the game! Hearing the cheers through the Anthem gave me chills! That support means a lot to us. It was a tough game, but a great result!

Read the game recap here. (Ed. Note: I checked the link and it is now dead.)
We’re glad you were able to join us last Sunday to see the Blackhawks’ 3-2 victory against our Original Six division rival Detroit Red Wings. The team really pulled together a consistent effort to beat the division-leading Red Wings for the third time this season (The Blackhawks are responsible for three of the Wing’s four losses!).
The Blackhawks return November 28 against Tampa Bay, and December is loaded up with big Western conference games, we need your support and we’d love to see you back at the United Center. Please also consider the Blackhawks hockey over the holiday season. Blackhawks tickets make great gifts for friends, family, or business associates, and a Blackhawks suite or group package makes a popular but simple-to-organize holiday outing, with many catering and seating options for your family or business.
