The game ended strangely as the Hawks scored in Overtime in a goal which didn't set off the lights and took all the spontenaity out of the celebration because no one was sure if it was a goal or not.
The replays showed an obvious goal and the crowd was stunned.
Now, if only the Cubs win the world series and Obama's impeached I could die having had seen everything. 22 Year Old Jonathon Toewes was named the MVP of the series and he's about to become the 'toast of the town' here in Chicago.
Already a legend on par with Makita and Hull, (especially after this plus winning the Smythe Conn Trophy(MVP) ) who were the last men to bring home the Cup to Chicago, again, back in 1961, 3 years before I was born.

Strangely enough I bought my nieces and nephews Hawks jerseys this past Christmas and one of them Jonathon Toewes!
I'm sure they're freaking out tonight as we all went to game 2 on Memorial Day together. I actually live in the Suburbs and fireworks are going off outside out here, I kid you not.. as we watch the game here and my neighbors watch me post this.
We've suffered all our lives as far as being a Chicago sports fan goes, I was even once a season ticket holder for 10 years, when they sucked through the 90's mostly.
This is a huge night for we lifetime Hawks fans, the Super Bowl of '85 all over again. So a big congratulations to the Blackhawks, and now watch Obama somehow glom onto this for some publicity as if he's a Hawks fan.
The only black fan in the city! lol Just kidding, there's a few I'm sure, not many though.
JUST IN CASE HE DOES try to take some credit for this....
