Congrats Chicago Blackhawks

I would like to take the time to congratulate the Chicago  Blackhawks on  making it to the Stanley Cup Finals after they swept  the San Jose Sharks with a 4-2 win at the United  Center earlier this afternoon. Just four  more wins and they will become  Champions for the first time since 1961  and for the fourth time in  their history. They are a young team that  plays like a veteran squad,  and whether they meet up with the Montreal  Canadiens  or the Philadelphia Flyers from the East, they are my  pick to  win Lord Stanley's mug. To me, they just do not seem like they  can be  stopped.

Chicago Cubs #1 Ballpark Hot dog !

Cubs 1st -- in MLB Best Hot Dog poll

OK so the Cubs may not measure up to some teams when it comes to actually winning World Series championships. Big whoop. But when it comes to delivering a delicious wiener, the Cub's came in first place -- tied with those show offy New York Yankees, according to a recent online poll. As part of National Hot Dog Month, the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council asked folks to vote for their favorite Major League Baseball stadium hot dog and Wrigley Field (yes, along with Yankee Stadium) grabbed first place as serving the best hot dog in all MLB ballparks.

But what exactly is a Wrigley Field dog? The park offers Best Kosher and Ball Park Franks hot dogs (wow, not hometown Vienna Beef?) steamed, boiled and grilled with toppings that range from grilled onions to the classic Chicago condiments -- minus the tomatoes lately.
