Calling in Happy: The Blackhawks Win the Cup!

June 10, 2010


The first Stanley Cup winners, 1893

Get out your bugles, snag your tambourines, line up the trombones, set off the fireworks–the Blackhawks have brought home the Stanley Cup!

Winning in overtime, 4-3, the Blackhawks ended the NHL’s longest championship drought, our team winning the Cup for the first time in 49 years!

The people of Chicago are in a great mood today, folks. Several visitors stopping at my desk have commented on this exciting win for Chicago, and many are, even still, sporting their Blackhawk gear (and the buzz) from last night.

And though at an early 7am, suffering from a Blackhawk hangover (the best kind), one man exclaimed as he left my desk, “It can’t get any better than this, all of Chicago is celebratin’, I tell ya. This is just great!”

Hockey fans or not, this is a great time for the city of Chicago.

And I don’t know about you, but I am celebrating with Starbucks this morning!

See you at the parade tomorrow!
