Rep Mike Quigley (15th) salutes the Stanley Cup champs on the floor of the House. He had made a bet with Philly native Rep Patrick Murphy who will have to don the Hawks sweater.
Senate Resolution introduced by Sens Durbin & Burris
Madam Speaker, you have no idea how much I’m going to enjoy this – but sometime late last night, Patrick Kane slipped a puck past a Philadelphia goaltender in overtime and the Chicago Blackhawks became the Stanley Cup Champions!
Congratulations to the team for their great season. Many of these players have played over 120 games this season, including the Olympics, to achieve their One Goal. A special thanks to the owner of the Blackhawks, Rocky Wirtz – while hockey never left Chicago, he brought it back. The management team of John McDonough, Jay Blunk, Stan and Scotty Bowman, Coach Quenneville, and Dale Tallon.
Madame Speaker, today, for all of us, with apologies, Chicago is [sings] “my kind of town”.
