Dan McGrath and Bobby Hull - Poet Warrior and Warrior Poet

Dan McGrath of Chicago News Cooperative is one the finest prose craftsmen in the business. He is the master of the declarative sentence.

Bobby Hull is the Captain of the Ice and metaphorical soul of the Chicago Blackhawks.

“Bob Pulford couldn’t lead a dog out of a thunderstorm with a T-bone steak,” Hull said.
