It's summer. There's no hockey anywhere, and puck fans are desperate for hockey news. So the Blues decided to do their fans a solid and hold a Q&A on Twitter allowing their fans to ask head coach Ken Hitchcock questions by using the hashtag #AskHitch.
But instead of asking about hockey, many Blues fans mostly decided to crack wise, asking "Hitch" about everything from how to get butter out of one's hair to how the appropriate number of balloons for a birthday party.
And it was great because it offered scientific evidence that non-hockey months are not good for society.Here are some of the best "questions" Blues fans asked Hitch, starting with that one about hair care...

Civil War buff)...
