Enterprise Bridge

Bill Wirtz dead at 77

Noted cheapskate Blackhawks owner Bill Wirtz died of cancer this morning in Evanston.

Look, it's really nice, all the charitable work he's funded. And partnering with Reinsdorf to build the United Center with private money. I don't have a problem with not participating in the player bidding wars that the NHL lacks the financial means to support. But Jesus, do you think we can televise the fucking home games now?
