As the Blackhawks were down a goal late in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final last night, tensions at The Pony in Chicago ran high.
But then Chicago’s Bryan Bickell tied the game up with 1:16 to play, and there was jubilation throughout the Windy City.
“WOOOOOOOOOO!” says the dude in the Jonathan Toews jersey.
Everyone gets a high five!
But then it’s time to chill out because overtime may be on the way. Have to stay hydrated and breathe and all that good stuff. (Also, keep an eye on Bearded Guy right there in the middle.)
Because then Dave Bolland SCORES AGAIN 17 SECONDS LATER AND OH GOD EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL.
BEARDED GUY CANNOT EVEN HANDLE WHAT HAS JUST HAPPENED.
Hold your beers up high because THE BLACKHAWKS JUST WON THE CUP, YOU GUYS.
More high-fives, more jumping, OFTEN AT THE SAME TIME.
Endless beer showers and ecstatic older fans jumping around in hockey jerseys ruled the night.
Here’s the complete raw video of the late-game heroics. Somewhere, someone is probably still draining beer from their ears.
- A conservation group in Zimbabwe reported that Jericho, the brother of beloved lion Cecil, was shot and killed by a hunter. But some scientists monitoring the pride believe he is OK.
