You may want to bring ear plugs if you will be anywhere near Carol Stream during the Blackhawks game Wednesday night. Rich Young has designed a horn like the one at the United Center that he will sound when the 'hawks score.

Young got his horn off a diesel locomotive and hooked it up to an air compressor. So it's extremely loud but so far no one is complaining.

"All the neighbors who are 'hawks fans generally are encouraged they all come out and cheer. Anyone who hasn't liked it hasn't said anything," said Young.

Meanwhile, Young's 6-year-old daughter Olivia is starting to resemble a hockey player after losing several teeth in the past week.

You will find much more about Young and his horn in Wednesday's Daily Herald.
