Blogger, Freelance Writer and Dedicated Rockford IceHogs and Chicago Blackhawks Fan. Lover of hockey, dogs, kids and husband. Not necessarily in that order. Born and raised in Rockford, Illinois where hockey is a high priority. Our Icemen have won more than any other high school team in Illinois, and there are plenty of college games to take in at the local ice house. Our Rockford IceHogs put on an exciting AHL display at the BMO Harris Bank Center and it's a proud moment when our guys move up to play with the Chicago Blackhawks. Nothing beats a short drive to the "Madhouse on Madison" to see the best hockey and the greatest anthem singer in the world.
