This is just too awesome. As a kid, I never thought I would see the Blackhawks win a Cup. I know I have repeated myself with that subject, but I don’t know how else to explain it. Now, three Cups? If I ever told anyone ‘yes’, I’m a terrible liar. There is just so much to discuss.
Game 7 against the Kings last year made my heart drop. It was a deflection into the net in overtime. I would think that most teams wouldn’t even get close to that the very next year. The Blackhawks, on the other hand, make it a priority to redeem themselves. I love this fucking team. Have I doubted them in certain games? I think others may have as well throughout the playoffs. But, as a great team does, they remind you to never doubt them.
With all of the garbage that we heard about locker room issues this year, nothing phased them. There were reports of fights, due to players fucking other players’ wives and girlfriends (and even a sexy meteorologist). None of that seemed to have phased them. The only reason why some of the media made a big deal out of it was because of what happened last year in Game 7 (when some of these fights allegedly, happened) and what was going on in the winter. The Blackhawks were slumping a bit halfway through the year.
Instead of letting it get to them, they settled in and did what they did best: kick other teams’ asses.
As it was in 2010, the Blackhawks will need to get rid of some players. But I am so damn happy right now, I’ll worry about that later.
Time to celebrate.
