I wasn't planning on posting anything today but I ran across a story this morning by Greg "Puck Daddy" Wyshynski at Yahoo! sports about the fountain in front of Daley Plaza in Chicago. Apparently dye was added to the fountain a couple of weeks ago to honour the Blackhawks and their push towards the Stanley Cup. Unfortunately the water ended up a hot pink colour...the second attempt yielded better results, the water being described as a 'cauldron of blood'. How's that, you horror writers! Click on this link to read the full story.
For the record, I have no allegiance to either Chicago or Philadelphia. But I'm leaning towards Chicago in support of centre Dave Bolland, formerly of the London Knights back in juniors. I had the pleasure of meeting him once when my dad and I volunteered as drivers for the Memorial Cup (Canadian junior championships) hosted by London in 2005. I got to drive him and Dylan Hunter (son of Washington Capitol's great Dale Hunter) to the arena for their final game against the Rimouski Oceanic (led by the now famous Sidney Crosby). So...Go Hawks!
