A group of fans celebrate the Hawks home opener with a pep rally on LIVE TV

The Blackhawks, You&Me this Morning, and Blackhawk Burgers

Turn A Hockey Game  into a Family Affair! Growing up in Chicago there were 2 seasons summer and BEARS season. As  I got older and Michael Jordan arrived in town, the “Bears season” fell way to “Bulls season.” And now, with the Blackhawks being both awesome and chock-full of totally cute really good players, we have officially adopted “Hawks season” as our own. The cool things is I really love hockey and the Blackhawks and Aly Bockler so when she called and invited me to a little pep rally outside the studio at WCIU-TV, I was IN. Since I am a fan of turning any event into a fun family bonding experience and because I have often been told my burgers taste look like hockey pucks, we decided to go with with a  burger and drink combo aka: BlackHawk Burgers  and Penalty Punch to celebrate our hometown team! The recipes are easy and fun and will add a little pizazz to your game watching experience.
