The good the bad and the bowman

You can hear the love for the Hawks these two men have even at their most critical they avoid being morose about the road ahead for our beloved B’ Hawks. I do think a third person sitting in once a month would mix it up nicely!
The Stan Bowman interview / internal monologue/ projection/ p.r. tour/whatever he’s doing, is definitely worth a listen tho. Especially if you want to get an idea of how to sound like an Olive Garden G.M.
I hope that Crow flying to Jersey isn’t a death knell tho!

Just trash

They’re lazy and more interested in discussion of how hard they “work” and travel than talking about hockey. You are paid to watch hockey! Constant woke garbage, misinformed political comments, and a poor attitude. I would rather listen to the Blackhawk Talk Podcast. I am just bored by these losers.

If you like political views

If you want woke talk then this is for you
