Meet Greg. He’s a Chicago Blackhawks fan who had just participated in an on-ice contest during the Blackhawks-Wild game where he attempted to shoot a puck into a narrow crevice in the net for extravagant prizes and arena-wide adulation. Unfortunately for Greg, his bid for glory came up short. In his eyes and heart, however, the moment was a perfect opportunity to stand near and converse with Blackhawks “sideline” reporter Sarah Kustok. And Greg wasn’t about to let this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity pass him by. Nope.
After a friendly back-and-forth with Miss Kustok about his attempt to score (a goal, that is, the other kind of scoring awkwardly comes next) and whatnot, here’s what Greg had to say about his presumably never-to-be-requited love for the lovely lady holding the microphone:
“I love you, Sara. You’re so pretty and beautiful. I love you.”
How romantic. They were like two Arctic icebreaker ships passing in the night, yet they had just shared a wonderful moment for all the Comcast Sportsnet viewers to see.
Big ups to Greg for taking a fearless leap in hopes of landing in this crazy thing called love. He is an inspiration to all the hopeless romantics out there.
How many times have you seen a hot sideline reporter interview someone and you just wish that the athlete would say something along the lines of “damn girl….you look good” or “enough about my game…..whatchu up to, ma?” Well that sort of happened here, just more of a goofy/awkward white boy way.
The kid was Greg from Lemont, Illinois and the hot reporter was Sarah...
If you missed last nights Chicago Blackhawks beat down of the Minnesota Wild, then you missed a classic Joe Nameth moment. No it wasn’t anything to do with any of the players. It was during the “Shoot the Puck” segment between the 2nd and 3rd periods. Greg Demena was selected to shoot and missed. During [...]
A Chicago Blackhawks fan named Greg had the opportunity to play "Shoot The Puck" on the ice during an intermission of Thursday night's Blackhawks game at the United Center against the Minnesota Wild.
However, Greg seemed even more excited by the opportunity to meet Comcast SportsNet Chicago reporter Sarah Kustok. Kustok asked Greg a question or two about his missed...
Some sporting events have momentum swings that seem to occur in nearly every minute of action, but the tilt between the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks was not one of those events.
Through the first 40 minutes of Saturday afternoon’s matinee between the Red Wings and Blackhawks, there was little doubt as to who the better team was on the ice. Sure, the Hawks got a huge...
The Blackhawks were dominated by the Red Wings through the 1st period, but managed to inch their way back into the game sending it into overtime where they fell asleep at the wheel.
Detroit came at Chicago with a firestorm in the 1st period with 21 shots on goal as opposed to the Hawks 4 shots. Corey Crawford handled the barrage as well as he could stopping 19 of them--only allowing...
Patrick Sharp was passed over for the NHL All-Star Game on Thursday, but the Chicago Blackhawks center would have made the team if he wasn't sidelined with a hand injury, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
The Blackhawks played the Red Wings for the 3rd time in 16 days, this time at the Joe in Detroit. Judging by the previous two games, you knew a couple of things for sure. One that it was going to be a great game, and secondly that it would probably be a close score. It didn’t look that way at first, by any means, but it would end up that way. More on that later. Crawford (16-10...
