Blackhawks fan sells Chicago dogs in Bruins country
NORWELL, Mass. (WHDH) -- It’s called Windy City Dogs and it’s owned by rabid Blackhawks fan, Gary Carlson, but it’s located in Bruins country. But he said he’s not threatened by B’s fans and there’s no way you’ll see any Bruins paraphernalia in his restaurant.
“Put a Bruins plaque in here at this point? Nah, probably not gonna happen, but we do have a restroom, could go there, maybe,” said Carlson.
His game day tradition is a Chicago dog.
“This is the Vienna beef frank, the hot dog of Chicago, made in Chicago…mustard in, that crazy green neon relish,” said Carlson.
But for Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid, he keeps it simple.
“Game day is usually always the same with chicken and pasta,” said McQuaid.
Whether you’re a Blackhawks fan making hot dogs in Norwell, or the number one Bruins game camping out for tickets, the excitement is as intense as the game is expected to be.
“If I had to, if I knew I had to be here 48 hours before the game, I’d be here 48 hours before the game,” said one fan camping out to buy tickets.
When you have this much fanaticism, Carlson knows he may be able to sway people with the food, but there’s no chance of anyone switching teams.
“Team is probably not going to happen, food’s probably a hell of a lot easier. Once it’s in your blood it’s there,” said Carlson.
Bruins fans were camping out in front of the TD Garden Monday night for a first chance to buy Stanley Cup Finals tickets. They go on sale Tuesday at noon.
