I’m so confused… did the Kings play all their Pacific Division games in October?

So the boys over at Second City Hockey have been producing a newsletter that they sell for $3 at Chicago Blackhawks home games since 2008. Maybe you didn’t hear me correctly… it’s a literal newsletter that they print out and sell at Blackhawks home games. Like the printed word. Talk about an Original 6 Franchise! Check out one of their newsletters from March 1, 2009 against the 26-26-9 LA Kings. I thought I loved my favorite hockey team by blogging about them… but Sam Fels takes it to a whole new level. So Sam asked myself, Quisp from the awfully-named Jewels From the Crown and those sisters over at Surly and Scribe to give our thoughts on the current state of the LA Kings coming into tonight’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks. And it took up half a page out of TWENTY TOTAL PAGES…

The 20 page The Committed Indian Newsletter is one of the most amazing pieces of fan devotion that I’ve ever seen. People at LA Kings games can barely look up from their phones long enough to take the time to read a 20 page newsletter about the team, let alone write one. So be sure to check out all of the Committed Indian back issues and check out Second City Hockey for all your Blackhawks news. Especially if you are Kings fan that will want to see playoff hockey.

And here is a link to the full issue of tonight’s Committed Indian featuring the Blackhawks versus the LA Kings. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
