About Blackhawk Zone
This site used to be WirtzSucks.com. But for obvious reasons, namely the passing of long-time Chicago Blackhawk owner Bill Wirtz, the name was retired and Blackhawkzone.com was born again.
Originally started in 2000, WirtzSucks.com grew to become a rather popular fan-based website for the Blackhawks. In addition to the friendships that have been formed, including a marriage between a pair of die-hards, the site has provided countless ego boosts and has gotten bigger than I ever imagined it would.
While nothing could ever replace the original Blackhawkzone.com that former webmaster Frank Porcelli developed, this site will attempt to do just that: to provide a place for fans to get information on the Blackhawks, post their thoughts and opinions on the message boards and write game summaries and commentaries.
