    Why did you write an article about Dimitri Jaskin while being a hawks fan?

    Good Day Ms. Blum,

    As a lifelong Blackhawks fan, it is great to see the Blackhawks inspiring young writers to write about them. I just read your article on the "Three Reasons why the Blackhawks have the best penalty kill in the NHL". I believe your analysis was spot on, especially regarding Frolik and Kruger. Very nice job! I hope to read more of your Blackhawk's analysis in the future. Go Blackhawks!!

    Thanks for becoming a fan, Nicole! How are you enjoying B/R so far? I really enjoyed your first article. Do you plan on primarily covering hockey or are there other sports you're interested in too? If you ever have any questions about the site or have ideas for way to improve it, please feel free to contact me! Thanks again.
