12/16 Road Music: @ Chicago Blackhawks


The Blues won last night, at home, and now they take the show on the road. This is the first meeting with the division-leading Chicago Blackhawks. I had to choke back some bile just typing that last sentence. The 'Hawks have won 3 of their last 5 games (twice in OT), and are coming off a 4-0 win against Tampa Bay on Sunday. Our ol' friend Patty "Twenny Cent" Kane got a little banged up, but all indicators are that he'll be playing tonight. He and Captain Serious Jonathan Toews and NHL Whore Marian Hossa form one of the more formidable lines in the NHL.

After testing our mettle against one division leader Tuesday night, we get to do it all over again, on the road, against these guys. There's no secret to this: keep fighting until the battle's won. Never relax, never step back. Keep Pushin' On.

REO Speedwagon/ Keep Pushin'

I know that there's at least one Broke University Pupil that wont mind me drawing from the REO well again. Really, though, these lyrics are perfect for our situation, particularly the second verse...

Goin through all the changes
I made so many mistakes
oh yes I did
Tryin to leave behind the heartaches
And sometimes I think
I was a little bit crazy, oh yeah
Whoa, I keep pushin' on

and the third..

Well it's comin' together
I finally feel like a man
oh yes I do
I never thought that I'd be where I am
Oh everyday I wake a little bit higher
Whoa I keep pushin' on, oh yeah

...we've come so far, but there's a long, long way to go still. We're not there yet....
