“It’s The Chicago Blackhawks Man!”
Congratulations to the 2010 Chicago Blackhawks! Lord Stanley comes to Chicago!
I’ll admit, I’m a bandwagon guy. So, first I want to give a big congratulations to all the fans who were watching long before the bandwagon started rolling. Congratulations. It didn’t hit me until watching the postgame and saw Chicago Blackhawk legend Jeremy Roenick doing the postgame on NBC’s national telecast. Watching JR reminded me of the importance of the Chicago Blackhawks and of our city. Tonight, JR congratulated a kid who was crying when he came off the ice after losing in the Stanley Cup Finals in 1992. After 18 years, JR remembered him and congratulated him and the city. Then he did what no commentator does on national television. He cried.
Another annoucer, Dan Patrick, asked him: “You’re emotional.”
DP: Why’s it affecting you?
JR: (visably emotional) It’s the Chicago Blackhawks man.
Thanks JR., for showing some heart. Thanks for the reminder, on national television, of how important this team and this city is. Congratulations Blackhawks; Congratulations Rocky; Congratulations Chicago!
Its a nice not not have to hear and think about Blago, Quinn and the rest of them for a couple days.
Go see Lord Stanley, get to the Parade Friday!
Thank you, Rocky!
