I’m definitely not talking about the beer! I’m talking about my friends. Since becoming involved with the Blackhawks games when my daughter left for college and my husband needed an new companion for the games, I have gotten to know the Millers and have found their friendship to be one of the bright spots in my life. Going to the Blackhawks games just isn’t quite as fun if I don’t get to see the Mills. I’ve gotten to enjoy trips out of town with them, birthday parties, time at their campground in Indiana, and great nights of socialization. I’ve also been fortunate enough to see two members of the Miller family launch their own brewery practically from the inception of the brewery, which has been incredibly exciting to see. How often do you get to see the fulfillment of someone’s dream in real time? (The other perk is getting to drink all the great SlapShot Brewing beer — I highly recommend Stick to the Nuts!!!)
What good fortune my husband had finding them through Blackhawks hockey, and what good fortune I’ve had to be able to ride on Jim’s coattails right into some of the best friendships I’ve had in my whole life with some of the funnest, funniest, and kindest people you’ll ever want to meet!
