WGN- This is easily the best 15-second interview you’ll see today.
While WGN was live on TV Monday night during their coverage of the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup win, Marcus Leshock approached a man as he walked down the street.
“How about that? How you feeling today?” Leshock asked. “You’re live on the air,”Leshock reminded him before handing over the microphone.
“You know how awesome the ‘Hawks are? ” the man asked Leshock. “This is going to sound messed up, but it’s true. They’ve got black people loving hockey. Ain’t that something?”
And there you have it folks. The Hawks greatness isn't predicated on 2 Stanley Cups in 3 years, or 3 Stanley Cups in 6 years, or 3 undoubtedly Hall Of Fame players that are just hitting the prime of their career. The Hawks greatness is that they are good enough to bring the entire city together. Yup, even the black people. Sure, he may have bought that shirt a few weeks ago. Sure, he may not have any idea what is going on half the game. Doesn't mean he loves it any less. Has there ever been a more universally liked team than the Blackhawks? I feel like there is a lot more acceptance and respect than there is for most Stanley Cup winning teams. Usually winning breeds contempt, no matter how impressive it may be. Just seems like a lot of people are tipping their cap as supposed to stomping it in to the ground. That's got to be a testament to the youth and talent on the Hawks roster, and the scary thing is that they aren't even close to being done.
Funny when you get the best interviews, huh? Literally the only person on the entire street. Not even sure the explanation behind that. Maybe the entire city was in an alcohol induced coma by this time, but something tell me that would mean this took place at 6 AM. Don't want some context here, need it.
P.S. Awkward white laugh for a $1,000 Alex.
