Awesome room Creature! Good luck with it and enjoy many Hawk-fests. :)

J7 we will and if you live in the SW burbs you will always have an open invitation to stop by and watch a game. if you live on the north side you still have an open will just take you longer to get to and fro as the room is not trailable ;) as with anyone on the boards send me a PM and let me know if you want to stop by and watch a game....weekends work better than weekdays(wife) but she's good with all as this is a passion that I've had for a long time (21 years of marriage) before I got married and pretty much accepted........Dang kids and college or ST would still be in our life...Oh well kids,dogs,a wonderful wife and the Chicago Blackhawks and all the great people on these boards...........LIFE DOES NOT GET BETTER THAN THIS.

Ha yes they would!


I remember getting a replica Bulls ring back in the nineties when i attended a game, that one was pretty cheesy


These arent bad, when i show them to people, they assume i purchased them.


Nice collectibles.

I made this a couple nights ago, just in honor of last nights game. I labeled it: "Let the Games Begin" I used 3 different pictures of Toews, a Game of Thrones picture, and a lot of Photoshop time. I think it turned out pretty B.A. sorry for the size. It looks really nice as a phone wallpaper

#1567511 Blackhawks Charter Inbound To Ord 11/29/2015

Posted by Luxornv on 30 November 2015 - 06:55 PM

wouldnt it be cool if they could lure al secord from american airlines to fly it?

i love watching the big planes land and take off, but i dont think i know of anyone that does it as a hobby.

what would be your most interesting moment while spotting planes?

thanks for the picture, by the way...


I remember reading somewhere that Al Secord is a pilot for AAL. This is a charter company, Swift Air, so no affiliation to either AAL or UAL. Wouldn't be a stretch to get him over there if he's still flying, but that probably won't happen.


TlDr of my favorite spotting moments: when I saw an Air New Zealand 777, and Air Force One. Details below.


As for my most interesting moments plane spotting, I have two. One was when there was an Air New Zealand plane coming into ORD. It was another sports charter, carrying the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team plus fans for an exhibition match at Soldier Field. ANZ does not fly into ORD, so this would likely be the only time that plane came in. A lot of spotters came out that day to see it. Fifteen minutes prior to arrival, the airport reversed the flow, so they were landing on the other side of the airport. It was a scramble to the other side, much like the scene from Twister where they got a sudden call and scramble out of the diner. We were able to make it in time, and we saw the only ANZ plane ever to land at ORD. The other moment is when I spotted Air Force One. Disclaimer, I'm not a fan of Obama, but AF1 is still a prestigious plane to see. I knew the president was coming to Chicago, and would be arriving right around my lunch time. I work near the airport, so it was easy to spot during lunch. Plane spotters do have a few programs to track aircraft coming in, but as you can imagine, the government doesn't want to broadcast the position of Air Force One for security reasons. I had a window for the time they would come in, but nothing exact. I waited at a spot near work for about a half hour on my break waiting, but kept seeing commercial planes coming in. It was getting close to the time for me going back to work, so I started packing up my camera. I use a DSLR, so it's not an easy thing to put together and take apart suddenly. I packed up and was about to leave, and saw all air traffic stopped. I waited because I thought this might signal the impending arrival. I then heard a roar behind me, and I quickly took my camera out and put it back together to get a few pictures. I was happy I was able to get a few good ones and cross it off my list of planes to spot.


If you're around the airport, feel free to pull over to an area out of the way and watch planes. It's always okay on public property as long as it's not a road. If you happen to be around ORD and see people in orange vests with cameras, those are spotters and they'll be happy to help you out. In the US and Canada, it's pretty easy to spot and won't draw suspicion from police or law enforcement.

Thanks for the reasoned logical response...I would love to hold one of mine up next to an authentic to see the buddy just picked me up a retro Toews and sent it to me. Admittedly I am not that into jerseys but it looks right to me. They even make all the tickets and cards they hang off the sleeves...

I'd love to visit either Creatch's or Stosh's pad. Creatch, I'm probably coming to Crestwood this summer. Now, you guys have me going. We do have a daylight basement room that needs finishing, but my wife wants to make it into a er, um dance studio.

I think somebody needs to put his foot down!

You can put your foot down while doing the cha-cha!LOL!

I guess guys our age will never accept or understand the attitude and lack of respect in today's society. We may not agree on every issue or even player assessments but I totally respect your viewpoints and your conviction in them!

Same here Creature. I may tend to fall on the side of the players in this CBA debate, but I am all for an agreement that is fair to both sides and gives the fans back what they! I just feel that the fans thoughts and feelings have not been taken into account in this debate.
I agree with you about kids these days having no respect and there being a generation that feels that they are owned something. I cannot speak personally about the school/education issue, and with the CBA and the Presidential election coming up, I just can't handle any more politics.
But please know, I always value your opinion! :rolleyes:

I posted in here a while back. I can't create a new topic, so I figured I'd resurrect this old one and share what I've been up to. :) Click the title for a link. Sorry they're so huge...I couldn't figure out how to resize.
