If this Stanley Cup Championship hasn't given us enough immeasurable memories, then what will? It's given us a chance to wipe away all the painful memories of the past and have them replaced with the wonderful memories of this Stanley Cup run. Here's just one of them.
Game 6. OT. Kane gets the puck by the boards and then shoots the puck low and hard towards an unsuspecting Micheal Leighton, a second passes and then I scream for joy awakening everyone in the neighbourhood, but I could care less. I pick up the phone to call my dad a longtime 'Hawks fan to let him know that 'The day has finally arrived and that the 'Hawks are indeed Stanley Cup Champions'. His response was "We did it...we finally fuckin' did it!" followed by his tears of joy. My father isn't much of an emotional person but on that night he was and couldn't have been more happier for him than that night.
I've must have phoned my father 10,000 times or so since my parents divorced when I was young but that phone call was the greatest call I'll ever make - I'll never forget it. It wasn't the longest conversation, but it was the most meaningful. Many other phone calls followed that night from my grandparents, to cousin's, to friends but they all pale in comparison to that one call.
I'm sure others here have had similar experiences to mine so here's a place to share them. I love to read them all as everyone has a story to tell because that's what's made this moment so special. A chance to celebrate and form some memories that will never go away.
