While watching the playoffs this year I still got the goosebumps everytime they showed the "history will be made" commercial with Kane's winning goal. That day will forever have a special place in my heart. It still doesn't seem real, and I can't believe it has been one year already. It was such a magical season. Two things that stand out for me aside from the obvious will always be the Marian Hossa goal in the game five overtime versus Nashville after the five minute major. The other being the JR post game speech. I remember clocking in at work at 5:55 A.M. the next morning absolutely exhausted, but with the BIGGEST smile on my face. Nothing was gonna ruin my day, nothing.

That night was bitter sweet for me. My wife was out of town on business, so I wasn't able to be out amongst the masses. The upside is I kept my son (then 2) up late to watch the game - got some great pics of him standing in front of the TV while the Hawks skated the Cup around. He faded out at the start of the 3rd. I was a little surprised I didn't wake him with the F-bomb I yelled when Philly scored late in the 3rd. As much as I will always remember the season, the playoffs and game 6. The moment that will always live in my memory is when JR talked in the post-game. My son looked at me and asked 'Daddy,why are you crying?". I just looked at him and said 'some day you'll understand'. Question: I have heard rumors there is video of the last few minutes with Foley doing the audio. Any truth to this? If so, how/where can I locate it?!?!?! Anyone else find humor in the fact Luongo has given up 12 goals in the last two games :)
Great memory! Like you, I was dumb-founded at first. Such a tremendous moment. Thanks for reminding me all over again. I've spent the last few weeks bummed that the Hawks didn't ice the Caknuckleheads, especially since they look so pitiful against Boston. But, now I feel better.
