Nice move, Tinley Park marketing team!
There should be a huge boost of revenue from outside Tinley park this coming Sunday, July 17, due to the special guest appearance of Blackhawks and NHL LEGEND, Bobby Hull. I don’t care who you are or where you’re from, hockey fans know he was one of the best to ever play the game.
If you haven’t met Bobby, check him out. I’d have to say he’s definitely an interesting character. I’ve met him twice. He’s all smiles and usually has something clever to say. His “handlers” usually have some good stories, too, if you get a chance to chat with them in line.
I’ve been holding on to a Bobby Hull jigsaw puzzle (from my late Grandma, Shirley Rompala) produced in 1970, since I was 18. It was a huge goal of mine to get the puzzle autographed. I could never find any information on appearances by Bobby. Well, it only took about 10 years until Mr. Hull came back as an ambassador for the Chicago Blackhawks before I was finally able to get that bad boy certified by the Golden Jet, himself.
When: Sunday, July 17, 2011
Bobby Hull will appear from 2pm to 6pm (main event from 12pm to 7pm)
Where: Downtown Tinley Park on Oak Park Avenue between 171st Street and Hickory Street
