*** UPDATED x2 *** Blackhawks open thread

Friday, May 28, 2010

* On a lighter note, here’s Gov. Quinn dancing in support of the Chicago Blackhawks

Are they gonna win it all or what?

…Adding… The full video is here.

*** UPDATE *** This should kick your day up a notch


We found your weakness
And it’s right outside your door

*** UPDATE 2 *** Congressman Mike Quigley, the co-chairman of the Congressional Hockey Caucus, faced off with Rep. Patrick Murphy this morning. Rep. Bob Brady of Philadelphia then playfully attacked Quigley and pulled Quigley’s Hawks jersey over his head. Watch

    Ackward dance moves…

    Yes, this is their series to lose. Broad Street doesn’t have anything on the talent of the Hawks.


  2. - heet101 - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 10:52 am:

    move your arms man!


  3. - OneMan - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 10:54 am:

    Yes they will win it all… Then only two Chicago teams will the be longest without a championship in their leages.

    The Cubs and the Cardinals (yes they are in Phoenix now but they started out as the Chicago Cardinals)


  4. - Pre - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 10:55 am:

    I take back what I said about Niemi’s experience. This last round gave me a lot of hope. We should win in 6.


  5. - OneMan - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 10:56 am:

    Also is it just me or does Quinn see to bump awkwardly into the woman next to him…


  6. - Bring Back Boone's - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 10:58 am:

    He’s almost as good a dancer as he is a poker player


  7. - Coach Q - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:15 am:

    everyone’s a hockey fan now. cute.


  8. - Stones - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:23 am:

    The swagger of a champion is unmistakable. Blackhawks in 5 games.


  9. - Rich Miller - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:25 am:

    OneMan, my eyes saw her trying to playfully rub her body on the guv and he moved away after a bit. But not immediately. Funny stuff, but he’s single, so no biggie.


  10. - OneMan - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:27 am:

    Nothing wrong with it… After Rod it’s nice to see a governor lacking in smoooooth


  11. - Fan of the Game - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:37 am:

    Best chance in ages. I say they win.

    And the world would be a better place if we all danced a little more.


  12. - unclesam - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:44 am:

    He should have just started dancing with the woman next to him — would have been a classy move to use a dance partner.

    Also, Rich, you should close the comments today with the full video of “Chelsea’s Dagger” in honor of the Blackhawks. The Trib posted it yesterday, I think.


  13. - Coach Q - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:49 am:

    if you’re going to promote the hawks on here, don’t play chelsea dagger. play the playoff intro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdZFG1REV3c


  14. - jaded voter - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 11:58 am:

    Great picture.

    Quinn, “We owe wha???”


  15. - just sayin' - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 12:01 pm:

    That says it all. The only thing Quinn really has going for him is that he’s a lovable loser. He’s the political version of the Cubs.

    Quinn makes Buzz Aldrin look like Denny Terrio with those moves.


  16. - Anon - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 1:12 pm:

    I can kind of understand why the man is currently single.


  17. - wordslinger - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 2:36 pm:

    Hawks in five.

    Niemi has been standing on his head, but Toews is the guy. He’s like a young Messier — whatever needs to be done, he can do it. He makes everyone around him better.


  18. - Anonymous - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 2:50 pm:

    I think I’ve said this here, but at the final buzzer after the Red Wings lost in the Cup last year, I picked the Blackhawks to win it in 2010. I’m sticking with my pick.


  19. - Sen. Jeff Schoenberg - Friday, May 28, 10 @ 5:46 pm:

    But did you see Pelosi presiding over the House in a Sharks jersey? Of course not…
