Yesterday could have been the worst day in sports history.
Last night the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup and for about five seconds no one even knew they won. In overtime, the under-performing star Patrick Kane scored the game winning goal when he threw a puck at the net hoping for a rebound and instead ended a 49 year championship drought. I was unable to watch the game because I was not around civilization or a television, but seeing the Chicago Blackhawk tweets start to appear was like a swift punch to the gut.
Being from St. Louis, all Chicago sports are of the devil (except for the White Sox, they don’t really matter, oh and Michael Jordan). Seeing the Blackhawks take home the cup was a terrible site, but it is not the worst day in sports history. The worst day in sports history will be when if the Chicago Cubs win the World Series. It has brought me all kinds of pride and happiness to see this team not win a championship for a hundred plus years.
Last night could have been the worst day in sports history, but that day has yet to come.
