Video: Corey Crawford gives a legendarily profane Cup rally speech

Jun 28, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

Today was the day for the Chicago Blackhawks to celebrate their Stanley Cup victory with the people of Chicago. They managed to do so in a way that made us all think back to how they did it back in 2010 and goalie Corey Crawford put the cherry on top.

Patrick Kane awarded Crawford with their “championship belt” and handed off the podium to him. There he let the fans and the team know how hard he thought they worked for the title as Nina Falcone at CSNChicago.com so eloquently transcribed.

“F***** right, Chicago! Biggest bunch of beauties in the league, f***** worked their n*** off for this trophy! Wooo! No one will ever take this away from us! We’re the champs!”

Bless you and your foul mouth, Corey Crawford.

    F&^K YEAH!!!

    What the hell is wrong with goalies? Cut out the profanity for like 2 seconds when you speak in front of families.

    • Windmiller4 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:00 PM

      Sorry it wasn’t politically correct enough for you..

      • ironmd778 - Jun 28, 2013 at 5:33 PM

        It’s called having a little class. Something he obviously lacks in a big way.

      • kaptaanamerica - Jun 28, 2013 at 6:10 PM

        I agree 100%, the profanity has no place at a family event. The organization wants to grow the game and the fan base and then has an idiot let loose with a profanity laced salute?? makes no sense. If I was there with kids I would complain. the organization should have told the players what the expectation was of them. if they want to swear, let them do it on their own time.

    • betrayedbylife - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:16 PM

      men beat one another on the ice, sometimes spilling blood or concussing each other and coaches are regularly caught on live television mouthing more profanity in 3 seconds than in this entire video and you’re complaining about family values?

    • tfilarski - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:31 PM

      please refrain from using the “h” word.

    • nothanksimdriving123 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:32 PM

      sjs, yes indeed, it is horrible, just horrible to think of the irreparable harm done to all those poor, innocent children whose lives have been utterly ruined by hearing such a word. All because that disgraceful man could not control his emotions. It’s shattering to think of it. No, worse, it is totally fu***d up. :-)

    • hockeyflow33 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:39 PM

      I hate what you people have done to society

    • r4n6er - Jun 28, 2013 at 6:48 PM

      I’d say that once our elected politicians can stop slanderous remarks and scandalous acts then we can worry about our athletes using profanity. By the way, he is probably really excited about winning the championship!

    • jernster21 - Jun 28, 2013 at 8:20 PM

      Kids hear worse at school. Gonna complain to all their parents now? Please. It’s not all about you; welcome to the real world. Want class? Go to Bible study, not a hockey game and certainly not a Cup Celebration parade where all those guys have probably yet to sleep and are all hammered, and deservingly so.

    • tbeilfuss - Jun 28, 2013 at 11:47 PM

      If you saw how the 20-something women were dressed/not dressed ………there isnt such a thing as family friendly in that environment

    • mp1131211 - Jun 29, 2013 at 4:04 PM

      My son is probably the one that taught your son all those bad words. I’m sure they’ll still both grow up to be nice young men.

  3. ipaintrinks - Jun 28, 2013 at 3:56 PM

    cut the guy a break, its his first stanley cup and he obviously had a drink or two today.

    • mp1131211 - Jun 29, 2013 at 4:05 PM

      Definitely looked a bit drunk….

  4. Troll_toll - Jun 28, 2013 at 3:59 PM

    As a Rangers fan and Packers fan…it pains me to say this….but LOVE this…

    • Troll_toll - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:01 PM

      …with the exception of the championship belt…not very original

      • Troll_toll - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:04 PM

        but I suppose since Crawford should have won the Conn Smythe it’s a good gesture by upstate New York’s Patrick Kane.

      • guyfawkes16051105 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:10 PM

        He wasn’t even the best _goaltender_.

      • Jackson Scofield - Jun 28, 2013 at 7:15 PM

        Hawks have been passing off the belt after every win… think Byfuglien started the tradition actually

  5. gekkoguy82 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:01 PM

    Something tells me he’d had a few of those free drinks prior to stepping to the podium :-P

  6. guyfawkes16051105 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:03 PM

    Yeah, since Quick shot off his mouth, everybody’s got to imitate him.

  7. jpelle82 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:06 PM

    he’s wasted

    • nothanksimdriving123 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:20 PM

      He’s a goalie. Pitchers, goalies and pole vaulters, a slightly different species. Closely related, not inherently dangerous, can even interbreed, but definitely a little different. :-)

  8. r8rbhawk - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:13 PM

    The term “Fu**ing rights” is normal everyday speech for these guys. They say it everyday at practice and in games. Hell it is so ingrained I’m surprised more of tthe boys didn’t say that on the podium. Read the boys’ lips every time after a goal is scored and you will see it is their favorite thing to say. Effing rights boys, thanks for bringing home the cup!

  9. narfmoo12 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:16 PM

    Chase Utley says “Well done, Corey.”

  10. valoisjoeybfeld69 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:21 PM

    Kids! What can you say. Here’s my take on this. Personally not offended at all. I grew up around professional athletes and knew the words before I turned 14. However, if you get bleeped, or they can’t print what you said without the use of an asterisk, you shouldn’t have said it because you’re likely to offend someone. After all, and according to George Carlin, there are 7 swear words you can’t say on television. (Piss, f**k., c**t, sh*t, c**ksu**er, motherf**ker, and t*ts)

    • sabatimus - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:29 PM

      I learned from him that apparently you couldn’t say “fart” on TV in the 70s.

  11. indianhead1992 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:24 PM

    Crawford deserves to say what ever he wants in front of 3 million Chicagoans. He has been the center on attention for awhile on why the hawks have not made it out of the first round with him in net (including me). This year he broke out of the first round and won the cup. It was a way of giving his finger to all the haters and we all deserved it.

  12. 19to77 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:34 PM

    God, I love goalies. Shine on, you crazy diamonds.

    • frozenmona68 - Jun 28, 2013 at 7:05 PM

      It takes someone pretty special to stand in a net and have pucks flying at you at 100+ miles an hour! Hell, when my boy played, he’d see him mom (me) up in the stands cursing right along with the other players! It’s only a word…. stop being so sensitive about it and get the f*ck over it!

      Love Hockey!!! Love Goalies!!! Love Everything About It!!!

    • jackrabbit56 - Jun 29, 2013 at 11:05 AM

      Always have to thumb up a Pink Floyd reference!

  13. pone27 - Jun 28, 2013 at 4:36 PM

    To the parent concerned about their child hearing 2 words: Get over it. Crawford won’t be the reason your son or daughter might possibly slip and say a bad word, I promise.

    The Blackhawks are real men. LETS GO BLACKHAWKS!

  14. Douglas K. - Jun 28, 2013 at 5:18 PM

    What a great speeh!

    • Douglas K. - Jun 28, 2013 at 5:19 PM

      Rather… speech. I hate phone touchkeys…

  15. zacmelvinmcnutt - Jun 28, 2013 at 5:28 PM

    “No one will ever take this away from us” Ummm yeah, someone will next year when they win the cup

    • bhawksrule - Jun 28, 2013 at 5:29 PM

      That’s not what he meant at all Brah

  16. ironmd778 - Jun 28, 2013 at 5:30 PM

    Classless jerk. Worst Cup winning goalie ever.

    • adambballn - Jun 28, 2013 at 5:37 PM

      Yep… guy that won the Jennings Trophy and had a .932 save percentage in the playoffs is the worst Cup goalie ever. Nice trolling bro.

    • tfilarski - Jun 28, 2013 at 6:34 PM

      troll

    • iwillfindyou - Jun 28, 2013 at 6:49 PM

      Salty

  17. kingcobraman - Jun 28, 2013 at 5:54 PM

    drunken wild excitement… a few f bombs can be tolerated…. free speech is very American….

  18. r4n6er - Jun 28, 2013 at 6:51 PM

    You guys think this is bad you should hear what soldiers say when they win gun fights!

  19. dawnie592 - Jun 28, 2013 at 7:06 PM

    I personally couldn’t care less what he says, doesn’t offend me, I just think it reflects terribly on him, his team mates, as well as the organization as a whole. I understand he is excited, drunk, and that they use this language every day, however there is a time and a place for it. A public venue is not it. Show same class and some self respect, not to mention common sense. If you want to use that language with your friends and team mates, do so, but not at a public venue, you do nothing but make yourself look poorly.

    • dawnie592 - Jun 28, 2013 at 7:13 PM

      Show some**

    • jrhawk - Jun 29, 2013 at 10:22 AM

      Maybe you’d have him reading from the bible?
      Get off the pulpit.

      • dawnie592 - Jun 29, 2013 at 10:24 AM

        Not on the pulpit, maybe Chicago fans just lack class just like the players on their team do and they think it’s ok to do these things lol.

  20. frozenmona68 - Jun 28, 2013 at 7:16 PM

    Okay, so I read the comments before I listened to the video playback… It lasted 41 seconds, he dropped two f-bombs and the word nuts. I would bet you anything those who were disappointed in the very short lived speech say much worse. And as one person commented: it won’t be the fault of the goalie when your kids are talking trash…. every been on a playground at an elementary school? Ever been to a movie? God forbid you send your kids to high school….on the bus even!

  21. mugsymagpie - Jun 28, 2013 at 8:10 PM

    Being a Boston fan, the Blackhawks displayed the utmost class and humility with the ad taken out in the Boston papers. I say congrats on your championship, and if I’m not cheering for the Bruins; I say Go Hawks. You have a new fan. Salud Chicago 😄

  22. slysipops - Jun 28, 2013 at 8:25 PM

    keep the locker room talk in the locker room ! no excuse for that stupidity…and that goes for you guys who will surely thumb me down ! you didn’t hear TOEWS,SHARP, SHAW or any other of the guys who spoke be so dumb. as for the brains talking about schoolyard cussing….WHERE DO YOU THINK THEY LEARN A LOT OF THAT FROM ??? biggest fault was the guys in charge being too free with the micraphone!

    • jrhawk - Jun 29, 2013 at 10:24 AM

      Another whiner from the pulpit. Go thump your bible.

      • slysipops - Jun 29, 2013 at 3:37 PM

        and another brain-dead baby opens his mouth under the protection of mom’s keyboard…..put mom’s computer down and get back in the basement before she catches you and puts you back out in the street……junior !

  23. blackhawks2010 - Jun 28, 2013 at 9:34 PM

    Blackhawks Dynasty. Best team in Hockey, great job Hawks! You did Chicago proud.

  24. Stiller43 - Jun 28, 2013 at 10:15 PM

    LOL it was like a bad wedding toast where the toaster took advantage of the open bar a lil much.
