Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel may have gotten a little carried away during some interviews held during Thursday's victory parade celebrating the Chicago Blackhawks winning the NHL Stanley Cup Finals.
There's no denying that the Blackhawks comeback in Monday's Game 6 of the NHL Finals may be one of the greatest moments in Chicago sports history, as they scored 2 goals within 17 seconds in the final 1:16 of the game. However, Emanuel seemed a bit overzealous by going so far as to say that those 17 seconds will now forever be known as the "Miracle on Ice".
Emanuel seems to have forgotten the true "Miracle on Ice", the USA victory over the USSR in the 1980 Olympics on the way to the gold medal. If Emanuel wants to call this "Chicago's Miracle on Ice", then so be it, but it would seem he made a poor choice of words, to say the least.

BEST OF MAXIM
For a game, while brutal in its most basic essence, to maintain a long-standing tradition remains of shaking hands in a display of sportsmanship after a hard-fought, likely antagonistic and sometimes even downright hate-filled and vitriolic playoff series, perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks took out a full-page ad [...]The post...
Chicago Blackhawks forward and Conn Smythe trophy winner Patrick Kane brought the Stanley Cup to New York City for an appearance on Letterman last night.

I forgot to pack my umbrella in with the Stanley Cup tho haha pic.twitter...
In front of jubilant fans as far as the eye could see, Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford gave one of best, albeit brief, profane speeches ever during the Stanley Cup championship celebration in downtown ChiTown. Although the racy language was much to the delight of his teammates and fans, it likely was much to the [...]The post Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford drops f...
I knew all along that Chicago was a great city with great people (minus some idiots like Cubby Tees). And this latest classy gesture by the Chicago Blackhawks is another example.

Television networks might want to consider using a five-second delay for these Stanley Cup championship parades.

The Blackhawks held their Stanley Cup parade today in Chicago. Corey Crawford took this opportunity to deliver a very short but very profane speech to the Windy City.
32 words, 2 f-bombs, 1 testicles reference = Championship speech if I’ve ever heard one.
