The Chicago Blackhawks are headed to Wrigley

Jun 13, 2010, 12:30 AM EDT

Wrigley.jpgHey, it’s Chicago Blackhawks night here on Pro Hockey Talk. But since
they went and won the Stanley Cup, I guess it’s only natural they’ll
dominate the headlines for at least 11 days or so.

Expect a big,
rousing ovation tomorrow for the Hawks when a number of players and the
team will be honored at Wrigley field tomorrow during the Cubs-White Sox
game.
Per ESPN Chicago:

The Hawks will be recognized on
the field at 6:45 in celebration of
their Stanley Cup victory. Select Blackhawks will throw out the first
pitch and lead the stadium in a rendition of “Take Me Out to the
Ballgame.”

How great was this timing? The Blackhawks win the Cup on the same weekend that the Cubs and White Sox play each other.

The good news is that there is no way the
Hawks sing “Take me out to the ballgame” any worse than Denise Richards
did. Then again, it’s become a bit of a tradition for celebrities to
just destroy that song on national television, so frankly I’ll be a bit
disappointed if it turns out that Dave Bolland and Brent Sopel can carry
a tune.

    Did anybody hear Jay Cutler sing “Take me out to the ballgame” today?
    He was so off key, the Ivy was shriveling on the outfield walls. If he sang like that during a football game, no defensive lineman would go near him

    Maybe having the Cup in the house will inspire the Cubs not to suck so much. And before anyone wants to jump all over this, I say this with all sincerity as a Cubs fan.

    It will be great to hear the Chicago Blackhawks Girls Choir sing the 7th Inning stretch song…maybe Kane and Toews will finally get it over with and kiss at the end of the song.

    Let’s see, you are from Philly, or maybe even Nashville or Vancouver. Wherever you are from, it makes us Hawks fans happy to see you so bent out of shape. If that’s what you think about Kane and Toews, then what does that say about your team’s guys? Don’t see nobody else but them hoisting the cup. Pronger, is that you?????
