CHICAGO (CBS) — Think you’re the Blackhawks’ most loyal fan? You’ve probably got nothing on a guy from Skokie who’s been to more than 2,100 consecutive home games.
WBBM’s Regine Schlesinger reports Bob Gertenrich, of Skokie, is anything but a fair-weather fan. The longtime season ticket holder hasn’t missed a single home game since 1966, even during what he calls the team’s lean years.
“At one time … they had 3,400 season ticket holders. Now they’ve got a waiting list of almost 13,000,” Gertenrich said.
