    Going to Chicago - Blackhawks or Bulls game?

    We're going to Chicago for T-giving week - meet up with the offspring, visit friends, eat good food, see the Warhol exhibit, etc.. Both teams are in town that week, tix are same prices on stub hub, I figure the boy and I will go see a game.

    Blackhawks vs Dallas
    or
    Bulls vs Trail Blazers

    Neither home team is playing up in the standings, so who puts on the better show? I've always wanted to go to a Blackhawks game, but I also haven't been to a pro hoops game since Showtime. The boy doesn't care either way.

    Blackhawks game for sure. Fun place to see a game and good fans.

    i dont know many people who think watching wood floor hoops is nearly as fun or entertaining as the frozen rink stuff whove been to both
    and either would have been better in the stadium vrs whatever theyre calling its replacement now

    Basketball sucks almost as much as baseball.

    Iím biased as Iím a hockey fan but...company I work for is corporate sponsors to both. I can sit court side with the owner of the Bulls and in the Presidentís suite with the Hawks a couple times a year. I would take 3rd deck with the Hawks before courtside with the Bulls. Honestly, the Blackhawks warmups/ national anthem/ introductions are better than a bulls game.

    If you go Hawks, get there with plenty of time to be in your seats for the anthem. Park Tavern for beers before the game.

    Hawks! But be ready for low brow mid West on full display, especially if you sit up higher in the cheap seats!

    I sat in the bleachers in the 1980's for a Cubs game. How low are we going?

    Basketball. I've spent my entire life in small town Canada and for the life of me I can not understand what the appeal of hockey is. Garbage sport

    Another vote for hockey. It could be a good game, it could be a shit game, but I find basketball boring as hell.

    Great call - fun crowd, awesome game. Row 9 in the corner, lots of good lookin' birds. Hooker heels, skinny jeans and a Blackhawks sweater should never go out of fashion.

    Crawford gets a shutout. Hawks beat the Dallass team 3-0.
