It's true — while sports in Chicago are by no means the worst, they've been itching for a major championship win for a while! Now, they've got one: the Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup!
Which, if you don't know, is the biggest award you can get for figure skating with a disc and sticks hockey! The Boston Bruins and fans were seen sobbing from the East Coast. Chin up, folks! Maybe next year!
Congrats, Chicago! Just don't celebrate forever like The Miami Heat seem to be!
Also, is there any word if Drake was admitted into the Blackhawks locker room after the win? We need confirmation! LOLz!
Boston has been on lockdown ever since the suspects who allegedly planted the bombs have been on the loose.
But since suspect #1, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was shot by police and later died in the hospital after he gunned down a campus cop at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology last night, suspect #2, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is still roaming around and is causing everyone to stay inside.
This manhunt is affecting everyone, and the Boston Bruins are no exception, as they have canceled practice in order to stay safe.
Boston's Marathon tragedy wasn't enough and would never be enough to keep the city and the nation from continuing on with their lives, just as strong as ever! This gave us the right kind of chills AND made us tear up!
That's why the Boston Bruins game — the first major event since the attack — meant so much to the city. Not only did they have an amazing turnout of fearless spectators, but when the Star Spangled Banner started to play, it was a moment so powerful, so moving, that you just have to watch and listen for yourselves.
Apparently when you win the Stanley Cup, dropping over $150 grand at a bar is normal!
The team hit up the Shrine nightclub at the Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut to celebrate their victory.
Their bar tab came out to a wacked out $156,679.74!!
Here’s an abbreviated list of what they ordered:
– 136 Bud Lights
– 3 Bottles of Captain Morgan ($300 each)
– 35 Jager Bombs ($525 total)
– 9 bottles of Goose MG ($600 each)
– Bottle of Johnny Walker Black for $350
Apparently the team didn’t initially plan on getting totally smashed — it just happened.
Said Bruins’ Zdeno Chara:
"That was our first and only night we had as a team together. We went out to Foxwoods to have a normal good time, nothing crazy. We started the night bowling and having some snacks, then we moved to the bar and basically had a night out."
The thing we LOVE most about this story: There was an obligatory $24,869.80 tip given to the server.
