King Solomon, Chicago Blackhawks, Chasing the Puck


What might King Solomon sing out to the Chicago Blackhawks?
King Solomon’s advice in Ecclesiastes is to avoid chasing the wind in life. Would he consider the game of hockey main activity of chasing after the puck to be just another foolish endeavor we sinners will waste our short time in life in useless endeavors?

No way, allow me to explain.
I surmise he would instead say that chasing after the puck provides a joyful healthy escape from the mundane times in life we all will experience. His Ecclesiastes 3 lists the times or seasons in life. I would interpret hockey might fall into Verse 5.
“a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them” 
I will use these syllables of solmization in a song to the Blackhawks in hope that it will soon be another joyful time again in Chicago. Lord knows, we could sure use it. 
“Go Blackhawks!” 
Wise or foolish? You decide.
