Big Ups to Jonathan Toews, Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks earned their first Stanley Cup title in 49 years after Patrick Kane found the net in overtime without anyone really noticing. The goal sounded no light, buzzer, or reaction from the crowd, and upon further review the officials were eventually able to figure it out. This certainly marks the most anti-climactic OT championship win in sports history, but aside from that it's important to recognize captain Jonathan Toews for dominating all aspects of hockey over the past few months.

The 22-year old racked up 29 points in the playoffs to claim MVP rights, adding to his already established trophy collection. “They’re both special in their own way,” said Toews of his Olympic and NHL accomplishments. “To represent your own country, especially Canada, at the Olympics and your home country, that’s something you’ll probably never experience again in your lifetime as a hockey player. That’s pretty cool.”

No shit that's pretty cool man...The coolest thing I've done this year is eat six lobsters in one sitting...that about wraps my 2010 so far right there. So a Big ups is given when due. Keep on living the dream Toews. Show the windy city something they haven't seen since MJ was around.
