He has a new book out about his life in hockey. Hull is arguably the greatest hockey player to ever play for the Chicago Blackhawks.</p><p>So when I saw him sitting out in the lobby waiting for his interview, I&nbsp;had to ask him to do a Wikipedia Files. This was one of the more entertaining Wikis ever, just because of the color that Mr. Hull brings to the answers. Although I can't skate.</p><p>Oh yeah, he swears. So don't get mad at me for playing along. And oh yeah, he let me wear his championship ring. Jealous? Look at the determination in both of our faces. We would kill it on the ice together.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><img height="536" width="400" title="" alt="" src="http://llnw.wbez.org/blog/insert-image/2010-December/2010-12-01/bobbyhull-jk.jpg" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p></p> Wed, 01 Dec 2010 16:32:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/blog/justin-kaufmann/wikipedia-files-bobby-hull Bobby Hull to perform in Goodman Theatre production of 'A Christmas Carol' http://www.wbez.org/blog/city-room-blog/bobby-hull-perform-goodman-theatre-production-christmas-carol <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org/bobby-hull.jpg" alt="" /><p><p style="text-align: center;"><img style="width: 448px; height: 577px;" src="http://llnw.wbez.org/blog/insert-image/2010-November/2010-11-17/bobby-hull.jpg" alt="" title="" /></p><p>Legendary Chicago Blackhawks hockey hero Bobby Hull, &quot;the Golden Jet,&quot; will make a one-night-only appearance in the Goodman Theatre's lavish annual production of &quot;A Christmas Carol.&quot; The great star of the 1961 Hawks Stanely Cup team will don him now some gay apparel (in the Christmas sense) on Dec. 14, appearing in selected scenes on behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
