Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford didn’t have a lot to say during today’s Championship Parade in Chicago, but what he did say was from the heart. Or, something.
Taking the stage in front of what seemed to be about 495 million people at Grant Park, Crawford let Blackhawk fans know that the bearded boys ‘worked their f#@$*! nuts off for the trophy”, among other colorful choice words. You’ll need to scroll in just prior to a minute or so to catch Crawford and his f-bombs.
What wasn’t shown on camera were the seven or eight members of the Blackhawk public relations squad passing out from Crawford’s speech.
Crawford went 19-5-5 during the regular season for the Blackhawks and an impressive 16-7 during their 23 game playoff run.
Nina Falcone of CSN Chicago took a picture from the stage today and needless to say, it was quite a packed house. Miami Heat fans had no comment.
