'Modern Family's' tasteless slams at the Blackhawks
The unfunny bad taste with which the show recently poked something less than fun at the Hawks is recounted here.
Bad taste in network TV is a given. But does making fun of a great Native American leader and a heroic American division in World War II- as well as a very good hockey team and classy organization from a town which apparently has far more grown-up sensitivities than the producers of "Modern Family-" really necessary? Where is this coming from, anyway?
Certainly not from a grown-up wit.
ADDENDUM: After Sunday's humiliating loss to the Bruins, GM Stan Bowman personally gave the team a talking-to- and then sent Antti Raanta and Ryan Hartman to Rockford while calling up goalie Scott Darling and Joakim Nordstrom.
They also gave Darling- a Chicago-area kid- a two-year contract extension.
