Corey Crawford’s Victory Parade Speech Was An Explitive-Filled Classic (Video)
When Conn Smythe winner Patrick Kane was at the podium, addressing the crowd of thousands that had gathered at Grant Park earlier today to celebrate the Chicago Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup victory, he ended things off by awarding Hawks goaltender Corey Crawford with the team’s very own playoff MVP championship belt. And the feeling of being recognized by Kane and the rest of his teammates for having such an integral part in their Stanley Cup run must have overwhelmed Crawford with emotion. And that emotion, along with dozens of alcoholic beverages over the past couple of days, resulted in the following all-time classic championship parade speech.
Have a look, and a listen, for yourself:
What is it with goalies and their inability to control their language at victory parades these days? Last year it was Jonathan Quick, and now it’s Corey Crawford reiterating the notion that Stanley Cup-winning goaltenders, while sharp in the crease, are not necessarily the smoothest on the mic.
