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.
PEREZ HILTON TO STAR IN “GAY DADS OF NEW YORK” REALITY SERIES
PRODUCED BY BUNIM/MURRAY PRODUCTIONS
LOS ANGELES – December 4, 2013 – One of Hollywood’s most colorful personalities is lifting the curtain on gay fatherhood. Gossip guru and media mogul Perez Hilton today announced he’s partnering with Bunim/Murray Productions, producers of The Real World, Project Runway and Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and OMG Productions to develop Gay Dads of New York. Set in New York City, the reality docu-series will follow Hilton, who recently became a single father, and a group of gay dads, single and married, as they support each other through the ups and downs of raising children.
“What is your typical American family like? These days, it looks a lot like mine! I am honored and excited to bring to television a show that will be filled with love, humor and drama. What will it not be? Trashy or boring! I am thrilled to have partnered with the leaders and innovators of reality television, Bunim/Murray, to create a program that is compelling and real,” said Hilton. “Up until now people know me more for my opinions than who I am. This show will give viewers the opportunity to get to know the 'real' Perez Hilton and my family, as well as some other really dynamic gay dads, and the women that make up their support system. I am a recent transplant to New York City, looking for friends and open to - hopefully - love. To new beginnings and this exciting new venture!"
“I immediately responded to the ‘Gay Dads of New York’ concept because my partner and I were part of one of the first gay dads support groups in Los Angeles back in 1998,” said Jonathan Murray, Chairman of Bunim/Murray Productions. "Whether it's a single dad like Perez, or married gay dads, becoming a gay parent affects your relationships with family and friends, all of which will make fascinating stories.”
“I brought the project to Bunim/Murray because of their brilliant storytelling, unbelievable track record in reality television, and what I consider the best eye for casting shows in the business,” said Suzy Unger, OMG Productions. “I have worked with Jon and his team for many years, and they are not only pioneers in the reality space, but they remain groundbreaking producers. We are proud to be working with them.”
Bunim/Murray Productions is currently casting the series, looking for gay dads in the New York City area who want to be in a support group with Hilton. More information can be found at: http://www.bmpcasting.com:16080/casting/gdc/
The series will be executive produced by Bunim/Murray Productions and OMG Productions. Suzy Unger at OMG Productions; Steven Grossman and Mario Lavandeira (Perez Hilton); and Bunim/Murray’s Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein and Scott Freeman will serve as Executive Producers.
