Lord Stanley's Cup Returns to Chicago

Last time there was a 49 year wait between Cups. This time 3 years. I like the 3 year wait better.

What does this championship mean for Chicago? Well in a city that prides itself as a great sports city, it certainly mean alot. While we have had other champions; however, except for the Bulls of the 90s, many of those teams, as great as they were, failed to repeat their success:

1985 Super Bowl Bears- a great team that failed to return to the Super Bowl.

2005 White Sox- since that incredible 11-1 post season run, the White Sox have only officially won 1 playoff game (I say officially because the 2008 Blackout game does not count as a playoff victory but it should).

Cubs- ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!

But the Blackhawks, first had to shred a lot of contracts because of the salary Cup returns with the same core  players for the most part. Not it wasn't a repeat but with the salary cap, twice in 4 years is pretty amazing. Add to that the incredible regular season run for this team and Chicago can gloat a little!

RIP, James Gandolfini

Incredible tweet from Bryan Cranston after the death of James Gandolfini. Sopranos is one of my top three TV series of all time, and maybe # 1 (Sopranos, Seinfeld and Mad Men). Breaking Bad makes my top 15 list and Cranston could not be more right about the importance of The Sopranos and the character of Tony Sopranos on the spectrum of TV evolution.

While he will always be Tony Soprano and that is clearly his best role. don't forget:

1. Welcome to the Rileys
2. The Last Castle
3. The Mexican
4. A Civil Action
5. "Bear" in Get Shorty!

RIP, Tony Soprano
RIP, James Gandolfini
