SportsTalk Live: Where does the Hawks' run rank?
I got three prominent columnist you were a long time writer you both the daily Thomas. Where does the streak rank when you think of the 85 Bears. The 2008 Cubs obviously the 05 White Sox winning the world -- where does that rank. It's going to be up there. I think the eleven and one White Sox post season was certainly. Notable -- Bears when they ran through the fifteen and one season and then the playoffs was like I was like ridiculous yet. Yeah I know and there was one team in New Orleans and who was it. Bears and it was ninety. The Patriots with a would you Washington generals three and one of the greatest ones ever Bob -- your column after it was. Something about the Patriots were lucky to leave with the Boston accent accidents intact if you remember. No carpet ride to your belt and thank you for remembered it was awesome -- if you ask me I would say there is the 85 Bears. They had their one. Which against -- Miami Dolphins. On enroute to just blowing away everybody in the playoffs that to me was the most amazing. Season I've ever seen in Chicago. That this thing is crazy at caves kept saying 22 games is 123 because morning time if I feel OK we're -- and extending that team for the two. Last year it's. It's. 28 right to correct -- -- back to last march 20 -- -- -- I think what's what's amazing about this one on I know they're there -- some skepticism out there I think about the streak because of the point for overtime and even if you lose a game you get a point took -- and I understand that. But those were all three shootouts okay. Aside from that to me the fact that this is such a condensed season. What they've done. -- end -- back to back games three games in four nights in and to continue to do this did to me is is really amazing. And I think it gets back to the depth these guys have good that the only got four lines and -- you know and and you know this this this lockout that it did that this team is his. Taken advantage of whatever the lockout made that one of the greatest breaks because that a lot of host city heal up you probably wouldn't started the season. It allowed Jonathan to heal up remember how he was banged out a deal with concussion symptoms are so it. It allowed this team to come together. There what and how about the goaltending -- I mean this is. Crawford every deserve a lot of credit to Michael -- now who's had a record Q calling -- close result against Kuroda us. -- this has been great to live in front of them and into a very grateful organization. Movement it's. It's that Detroit game with the one you were not a very you're right that was a sensational. Yeah even I don't want to lead 1000. -- and then we'll watch that game and you don't. Get hooked on hockey. You weren't breathe right and and I think your next game yes it was a. -- Jonathan was looking at me like I was a little not still putting up there I thought I wrote that I think it was better than the game six of the Stanley Cup. When they wanted to know if you like your nerves become your sport I I am I yeah I -- play the game like I get an I'm an idiot but put it. And -- -- -- -- -- -- god I guess I just as wow I mean I couldn't take my there's a public defender -- -- answered viewer -- ice dancing or whatever but. Do you look like a show for Benny Hondas -- for the guests and then come generate lift his right. So I made. Couple times I mean there's no legal well I yeah sure I'm moving forward can't give up legally you see it right here as long as you do not stop and you continue to move forward as momentous lower right. -- messed -- -- it's like to help -- categories wanted to get a film about his hands on the tying goal when I was two to plus if you if you watch him and you watch other teams. Nobody can handle the puck like he can't and you see other teams almost kind of laying off him because I'm just total respect because they have. Did they don't -- -- embarrassed by it and get compared to like a point guard who can has absolute perfect control the Dallas yeah so that's what I see. It but it's it's even went Bob syndicates into the game the top of the goal tied it to be able to just. You know get that puck -- and flip it up for his body. I said this to you back in the green -- earlier before the two richt showed up. Then this. Team might right now this organization. How they're playing. How they conduct their business sellout crowds every single night might be it might -- the best. Professional franchise in North America let's forget about European professional soccer with 400000 at the -- Hockey in hockey basketball baseball football. There there in the team photo of the best run franchise is. Would you agree to it you know I think about Miami the Miami Heat course we got -- they did a big deal LeBron moved rather get going wake. The Patriots are great are gonna get him but it's hard to argue with that right now and honestly god Rocky words. Who knew who knew that you were chasing you know arm. -- as Jonathan was saying the organization itself the fact that he can tell. Jeff from high up there one win in response if there's a bad hot dog John McDonough or somebody he's gonna get a one of those kids walk around. They all got Suton like you guys know what -- -- do everything they could never stop working the changeup and that trickles down to these guys have time. It's distressing is you -- now we got a lot of hockey fans who. Knew nothing about hockey -- -- -- words may you rest in peace you know he used to say owners are not supposed to be like. But if they show a shot tomorrow night him of his son. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Everything -- me and it is not supposed to be no -- -- -- -- -- -- hell you're able to -- my wife is not like that -- -- sports one of the Bears -- the because the management the owners what. Know that did that that the that this could be equal if a new management team came in with the Bears and everybody and they did everything up so what the McCaskey did because that's really what -- words did. You know it just did things that you were you supposed to be doing as an owner and even -- Your -- any gentlemen twenty minutes that's right kind of comment and said look I've been with the family business is -- liquor and Rose stayed. Give me 34 years he didn't fundraisers that you know that parade and everything -- over a million people -- like I remember being down there and see in the first. The thing come through with ten. Hopefully when anyone under an overpass before they got into the main thing is guys out of his mind as we know I mean literally out of his mind but the written. Chicago. It was sunny was hot it wasn't hockey weather with the city came together now as an owner you're our owner of a team. That's what I would want more than anything on the -- the money not to get by the way. It's funny because when John McDonough went to meet with Rocky the first time they've never met. Rocky had done his homework. Ask John Evert cup of coffee turn in three hours at a table somewhere. A hired him on the spot. Rocky knew what he needed to do and it was done a week after his father died. It puts you remember that the Hawks fans were were concerned about John McDonough high price to gonna turn into the Cubs is this gonna turn into and he's a day and night since seventh inning stretch out and he has done a lot of that stuff but these ones so it's. You know considered John Toews. Bobble head Jonathan Toews Bobble head night I think it's April 4. So -- no they came in took like a big plaster cast of his head or something but. That'll be crazy and I'm told me this thing with posted tomorrow night I think is gonna be Hillary top so tendencies follow us at they have have you seen anything that looks like. That what the person -- so I'm taking -- and yeah I mean our heads are different so we would need like. You know because you're you're you're -- huge stack up.
