Two-Point Diversion: 'Hawks Lose In NY, New Cub Opens Mouth, Words Come Out

Blackhawks Lose to Lowly Islanders

Chicago was leading 2-1 in this game after the first period, but a four-goal avalanche in the second for the Long Islanders, ultimately, was Chicago's demise as the Blackhawks fell 5-3. The [insert-clever-nickname-referencing 'Hawks youth and talent-here] return home tonight to face the Edmonton Oilers.

Curse? What Curse?

Newest Cub [If he doesn't get cut. -Ed.] Kevin Millar thinks the Cubs have a shot at breaking the epic "curse" by having swagger and, I don't know, believing in themselves or something. Millar, by the way, is 38 years old and "hit" at, or near, the Mendoza Line for most of last season, soooo, maybe, Cubs fans, shouldn't take his "advice" to heart. Still the important news to take from that Sun Times article is that baseball is back, which is an awesome fact for the baseball inclined.
