Trade Deadline?

Hello sports fans. Here is a link to another article that I found earlier today. Check it out! :)

Interesting Hawks' Finds

No Hossa?

When the Hawks face the Flames tonight at 7:30 p.m. Chicago time, Hossa will not likely be playing due to acquiring an upper-body injury. He is skating with the team, on the positive side. Feel better Hossa! :)

Thank you!

Hello everyone. I know it has been a while since posting, but I'm still here. I have five weeks left until graduation and I am so excited. In the meantime, I've been dealing with a few family issues and trying to keep my head on straight. So taking all of that into consideration, posts will be coming and thank you for being patient with me.

Reflections of Life

Hello sports fans. I want to say thank you for continuing to read this blog despite the fact that I haven't been on here much. Secondly, go Hawks! Thirdly, I want to say it has been five months for my boyfriend and I. I have been looking forward to this day because it signifies our dedication to each other and how much we care for one another. No matter what, he is always there to support me and give me a giant bear hug when I need it. Additionally, love is giving someone your entire heart and knowing that the person will hold it and never let go. You might be thinking, you're only 21 Mary and don't know what love is, well yes I do. When you date someone twice in a row and then go back with them, something is drawing you to them again. What that something is depends upon the person. The point I'm trying to make is to follow your heart and allow your brain to assist when necessary because falling in love with someone is the best thing to happen to anyone. If you want to share any thoughts about falling in love, feel free to do so.

Kelly Clarkson - Catch My Breath (Official Lyric Video)

Kelly Clarkson has very empowering songs and they can get a person through a tough day or simply a loss of a loved one. I took the meaning of not having negative people in your life, who will only bring you down and cause drama, and keeping the ones who support you in every facet of your life. Again, this might bring tears to your eyes or give you a boost of empowerment. I"ll let you decide that for yourself. Have a good day everyone and I'll try my best to post every other day from now on. I also want to thank you for being patience with me as I have two months until graduation. Yey!

Pia Toscano - This Time

This is a very powerful song because it proves that you can push through any situation no matter how hard it is. The first time I heard this song was when I was going through a tough breakup and it helped me so much! Give it a try and determine your own meaning for this song in your life. Enjoy! :)


Hello readers. Sorry the absence on this blog, but I'm still here. How is everyone doing? Below are some links to check out about how awesome my Hawks have been doing:

What Valentine's Day Means

I wanted to comment on Valentine's Day and what I think it means to various people in terms of plans and feelings behind the chocolates and flowers. When I was single, I used to called it "Single's Day", but not anymore! I have a lovely boyfriend who I wouldn't  trade for the world, who loves me for me, and makes me a very happy woman. I want so much more with him and for all my ladies out there, don't just be with a guy for his looks, but for who he is at heart. You can date the hottest guy or girl in the world, but if he or she doesn't treat you right, then someone else is better for you. I don't care how much you loved him or her, never ever tolerate being mistreated by anyone because it allows other harmful consequences to happen such as physical or psychological abuse. All I'm saying is to singles V-Day is a day to go on a date or celebrate it with your other single ladies. For couples, V-Day is about spending quality time together and it doesn't have to be all day, but maybe a nice dinner or movie. Personally, I'm all about the simple things in life such as being held in some one's arms or giving my boyfriend a nice bear hug for five minutes. Overall, Valentine's Day is about loving your significant other in whatever way you like whether it be physical or emotional and taking time just for the two of you.

Lady Gaga Cancels Shows

Feel better Gaga because my article for the week depended on you performing at the United Center, but it's fine. I understand that you're only human and I hope for a full recovery for you soon!

Girls and Ex-boyfriends

Yes this post will be venting about someone who needs to GET OVER her ex-boyfriend and this young female is the lonely Miss Taylor Swift. Your song "We are Never Ever Getting Back Together" is clear enough and you bashing him at the Grammy's over the weekend. We don't want to hear you complain about the lame boy from 1D because frankly no one likes the stupid band to begin with and no will continue to support you because we get the message your trying to get across. Maybe if you would take the more mature route, not try to copy his style, and simply spend some time with your best girls, your mind would not think of him so much. Heartbreak isn't easy and I understand that, but venting public outrage towards him means you're NOT over him and trying to seem desperate a.k.a wanting him back even though you say you don't.

- What do you dedicated readers think about this situation?

Hawks Win! Hawks Win!

Hello sports  fans! I know it has been a while since I've posted on here, but I'm back- in- action. I also have some great news to report about my Hawks! We won last night, not just in sudden death overtime, but in a shootout 3-to-2 against the lame Ducks. Yeah take that stupid ducks! :) Go Hawks! :) And yes I did get into the game by yelling at the TV and dancing, but that is me. Have a great day from the winter weather of Chicago! haha

- Thought question: How do you enjoy watching your favorite sports?

Trash Talking

Hello again sports fans! I'm back again with another post and this one regards trash talking. Trash talking in terms of other teams is totally fine and even if you want to tell off complete strangers is cool. I do it all the time and if people wear hockey jerseys other than my Chicago Blackhawks or Wolves, then that is  MAJOR problem because you don't belong here. If you're in Chicago or have lived in this awesome city, there is no reason not to like the team from here. The only circumstance that I'd consider fine is if a person was born in Michigan and then moved to Chicago in adulthood, liking the Deadwings I can understand, but you'll still be told off by me. No one likes the Deadwings and the only NHL team I support is my Hawks. Call me crazy, dedicated, or too much into my sports, even call me a crazy sports fans, SO BE IT. I don't tolerate jerseys that aren't Chicago ones and why should I? True Chicagoans knows our teams are #1 and that is it.

 -Thought question:What is your favorite team and why?

Worst Team in NHL

Hello sports fans. Tonight listening to the game on WGN 720 with the Chicago Blackhawks, may I add the mighty powerful Hawks, played the Cansucks in their home arena. The game was going along ok when we tied the score 1-to-1 and then overtime hit. Knowing that the Hawks just came off of a shootout loss a shootout is when an opponent shoots one-on-one with the opposing goaltender until one team gets one more past shot the goalie) and I was all pumped up. Now we all know the Cansucks can't play hockey well because 1) they have never won a Stanley Cup EVER in their team history 2) Think that being total cheap shots is cool, NO IT IS NOT JERKWADS 3) Because we think getting in fights with whoever and whenever is also fine and this includes picking on guys who aren't our own size 4) Because they are Hawks' most hated and loser rivalry and Hawks' fans hate them regardless of how many young player they may happen to have.
Long story short, we lost again in a shootout when it ISN'T NECESSARY. GO TO HELL CANSUCKS AND  stay in Canada where you belong because we certainly don't your dirty asses in Chicago tainting our beautiful city with who knows what you may have. The point is I'm still wearing  MY HAWKS' JERSEY LOUD AND PROUD BABY!! Because true hockey fans know who the REAL winners of this game are. GO HAWKS GO!!! :)  Just think of Chelsa Dagger playing a million times, and that will make you freeze up and realize how scared you are of the mighty Hawks! Next time we WILL dominate over your cheap asses and I mean anything we have to do to win.

Inner Zebra

Hello again sports fans. Today I decided that the time has come to change the background for this awesome blog and I chose a zebra picture. You're probably wondering why in the world would she choose this when it is a sports and technology blog? Well, because why can't a sports blog be fun and fierce looking? I am a huge supporter of animal prints overall, but not real fur. No animal killing here. lol I think it expresses just how fun and outgoing a person can be in terms of loving life and being who you are! oh and by the way GO HAWKS!!! :)  Have a great afternoon from the beautiful City of Chicago! <3

Game Recap

6 and 0 Hawks

Hello sports fans. Well the Chicago Blackhawks have gone undefeated thus far and Sunday night a.k.a last night was great when we beat the hated and worst team in the NHL, Detroit "Dead Wings, which resulted in a 2-to-1 overtime victory. You dedicated readers know how much I love my sports especially hockey. Imagine this: I'm in my room, hearing the radio 720 A.M. because I don't have Comcast Sports Net on cable, dancing in my bath robe, and getting ready for the week. Yes, I am odd, but I will always support my sports teams through thick and thin. GO HAWKS GO!!! Let's keep up this winning streak and know that Chicago overall supports you.

Hawks Updates

Mighty Blackhawks

Hello sports fans around the world. Well, the Chicago Blackhawks finally had their home opener at the United Center verses the Saint Louis Blues and yes we did win 3-to-2. Patrick Kane, Brent Seabrook, and Vicktor Stalberg rallied goals for the Hawks to make them still undefeated in the NHL. I couldn't be more proud of my Hawks, despite the lockout being in place earlier and never mind the face that it took away more than half of the season. But I'm here and if you hockey fans want to join me in celebrating the NHL being back in action (except the Cansucks and Detroit "Deadwings"because they are worst enemies of ours), sit back, gather around your television sets with fellow hockey fans, and enjoy the action. Hockey is the best sport in the world and I don't care if scrapbook stickers are hard to find with this sport and hockey fans are awesome! :) Have a great day!

Thought question: What sport do you enjoy following?

Chicago Blackhawks (Chelsea Dagger- The Fratellis)

This is the song of the #1 team in the NHL baby!  GO HAWKS GO!!!

Vancouver Canucks getting rattled by Chelsea Dagger

HAHHAAHA No wonder why the Cansucks do suck! I love you Chicago Blackhawks! :) Chicago hockey fans what's up? And by the way we will continue to torture you with it too and you damn right better bet you will hear it again baby.

Get Over It Gomez

Hi sports fans! I found this article on Yahoo! ( my favorite and it really hit me as if no one really cares about it. This involves the "bimbo" Selena Gomez. She is just nasty and everything about her is gross. Justin DOESN'T want you anymore and you need to get over that fact. Below is the article:

Thought question: What do you think about their break-up?

Hawks Dominate Thus Far

Hello sports fans. Well, I haven't been on here as much as I'd like, but I just wanted to comment on how awesome the Blackhawks have been in their first two games verses the Kings 5-to-2 and Coyotes 6-to-4. Just a note though, with the shortened 48 game season, each game is worth four points verses two like the a normal regulation game is. GO HAWKS GO!! And I couldn't be more proud of you! :)

New Semester and Steps

Hello sports fan. Tomorrow will complete my first week back to college and it couldn't have been better! :) This will be my last semester at Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL and graduation is May 3rd at the school's theatre. Me walking across the stage, earning a Bachelor's degree in Communication?? Wow!! :) This is the moment I've looked forward to since grammar school and at that point, I set the goal of getting accepting into college in the first place and then succeeding through it. So far, I've had a really positive experience and loads of stress, however, it will all be worth it when I walk across that stage and then my life really begins. Having supportive friends and family along the way indeed has helped thus far and will continue to aid in my future in the media field! This post is really about being grateful for my life and thanking everyone who has been there for me when I needed them! You dedicated readers aren't forgotten either because without you, I wouldn't have this awesome blog and such passioned posts. Another topic to bring up is MY HAWKS!!!! :) I've supported them even during the lockout, but now is the time to celebrate not the NHL commissioner because he is a classless jerk, but the Chicago Blackhawks I do support! :) Have a great day everyone!

Question for thought: How was your college experience? Good, bad, or somewhere in- between?

Hello sports fans. Because this blog isn't just about sports or technology, I figured to share some social media aspect as well. Below is a link to Bieber's twitter page if you want to follow him:

NHL Lockout Is OVER!!! "Full Interview"

- Courtesy of Natalie Simpson's YouTube page


This story is quite interesting if you can relate to it and might even bring you back to memories from childhood. Feel free to check it out! :)



This is the word used to describe Chicago fans. No matter what, Chicago sports fans support and take pride in their teams. Today I was shopping at my local mall and this lady was wearing Chicago Bears pajamas as well as a father and son with matching hats. What more could you ask of fans? Yes, I really would have loved to see the Bears make the playoffs on their own free will, but I can still see that this amazing city is not giving on their team anytime soon. Additionally, another point to prove this is when the lockout was happening, yet I still witnessed fans wearing Hawk's hats. How cool is that and this unlimited spirit we have for sports no one can beat! I LOVE CHICAGO and our teams! :)

Questions for you dedicated readers: What is the best part about where you live?

Lockout is Over!

Hello folks. As of January 6th, the lockout ended with the NHL and NHLPA (Player's Association) coming together or compromising on a CBA ( collective bargaining agreement). I was so happy because first off my HAWKS are back in action and two now I can see both teams a.k.a. the Wolves and Hawks play their own individual seasons! :) Whoop! :)

Coffee Lovers

Hello again folks! I had an idea to write a post about coffee and you're probably thinking why. Well, sports and caffeine does share a common bond. Coffee is a stimulant and wakes up your brain and I know my boyfriend drinks coffee before he plays hockey or skates with his friends. Being a hockey fan for seven years, I know that most Chicago Wolves players consume pasta for energy and chicken for protein. I'm not sure what they do in regards to caffeine, but I know without coffee, I get very crabby.

Do you drink coffee and why? Feel free to share your thoughts.

For College Students

Being a college student right now, I found this article very helpful. I don't know how many of you dedicated sports readers are in college or plan on attending a university at some point in time, but here you go! :)

No Playoffs

Hello sports fans. Well I have some disappointing news for you: the Chicago Bears did win their last game of the season verses the Detriot Lions, but their fate was in the hands of the most hated team ever (Slackers) and the Minnesota Vikings. The cheapshot "Slackers" had to win, in order for the Bears to get in the playoffs, but the Vikings eventually won the game 37-to-34. I understand the logic of the Chicago Bears not winning as many games as they wanted to before the last one of the season, however, leaving our fate in the hands of our rival isn't a good aspect. I will never root for the "Slackers" in my lifetime because I love Chicago and nothing can change my opinion. However, let us try to take the positive from this situation: the Bears need to win games regardless of the opponent because their fate was ultimately left to another team, which never should have happened. Next season Bears: you win more games, the offense does a better job at backing up Jay Culter (our current quarterback), listening to our current coach (which the Bears will have a new one next season because Lovie Smith was fired the other day), and legitimately working together as a team such as having better communication on the field and more efficient practices. In the end, I still love my city and the Bears! GO BEARS GO!! :) Have a good day!

What do you think about the Chicago Bears not making the playoffs?
