Road Trip to Raleigh
Fan Fair and Fanfare
Just got to the Umstead hotel, (courtesy of our driver Oscar) and I am currently indulging in some quality Carolina BBQ: pulled pork sliders. Upon the conclusion of my meal, I will head directly to Fan Fair.

After Fan Fair, next up is the Red Carpet. Due to the formality of the event, I will not be sporting my authentic team Sweden Lundqvist jersey. The Carolina Hurricanes’ own, rookie Jeff Skinner, has certainly been the talk of Fan Fair. I am looking forward to seeing the ovation he receives tonight at the skills competition.
Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
