Great memories of Bobby's first time back in Chicago as a member of the Jets.
The old Intl Amphitheatre down by the stockyards was packed to the gills to see the favorite son. As I recall Bobby didn't let us down as he scored several goals. That rink they threw up there was something else. The boards were so loose you could actually watch them lean out as the players crashed into them. Quite entertaining hockey; wide open, lots of goals. Kinda like the new NHL.

My intramural team at University used the Fighting Saints logo, we were a Catholic College;), except we used the Red White and Blue colour scheme, actually the Blue,Blanc et Rouge as most of the guys were Habs fans:haha:
