Coming Home Chicago?

What is this? Is this real life?

Go Kings, Blackhawks suck. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way (trip cancelled).

GUESS WHO IS COMING TO CHICAGO?! That’s right. I’ll be in Chicago for the Newcastle fan group Toon Army America national meet-up that is happening in Chicago on the weekend of April 20th. Despite the match against Everton being moved to Monday (screwing up literally everyone’s plans, and I’m planning on leaving Monday morning, if not Sunday night), the awesome guys over at Toon Army Chicago are still planning on throwing a banging party.

And we’re gonna be there to give it the coverage, and attention it deserves. Because Newcastle United has an amazing American fanbase, and almost everyone here at Coming Home Newcastle is American (Except our new guy, Chris Beech. He’s OG.), we thought it would be an amazing opportunity to come and meet everyone who took the time out of their hard earned weekends to celebrate the greatest club in the world in one of the greatest cities in the world.

We're looking forward to meeting everyone who makes it, and we'll be keeping up with the festivities on the site. Be sure to follow us on our Facebook and Twitter, because we'll be looking to capture all the best moments, and you won't want to miss it.

Are you gonna be in Chicago when we hit it? Let us know, we’d love to hang out!*

*In a public space where multiple people can see us. We’re cool, but not that cool.
