After the Chicago Blackhawks lost Game 1 of their playoff series against the Nashville Predators with the Chicago Cubs in attendance, the Chicago White Sox were hoping to bring their hometown team some luck in Game 2 on Sunday.

Gordon Beckham, A.J. Pierzynski and other Sox players went to the United Center after flying in from Cleveland, where they lost 7-4 in getting swept by the Indians.

“I’m a big Hawks fan for sure,” Beckham told Comcast SportsNet Chicago. “It’s fun to watch, and from what I know about them, they’re good guys.”

Actor Vince Vaughn also was in attendance with his wife.

“I’ve never been in a ballpark where when you sing the National Anthem everybody is yelling the whole time,” Beckham said. “So that’s something new, something cool , and it’s fun to be part of it. Hopefully we’ll go deep in the playoffs.”
