Team Canada vs. Blackhawks
How about this for an intracity challenge: the Cubs players vs. the Blackhawks in both a hockey game and a baseball game and see who wins. “It’d be a good reality show — ‘Crossover Athletes,’” Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster said.
The Cubs nearly have enough Canadians in the organization to field their own hockey team. Dempster has played right wing, Corey Koskie could be the left wing, Rich Harden was a defenseman, and Vince Perkins was a center. All they’d have to do is recruit Carlos Zambrano to be the goalie.
