Around the UC:



-What a beautiful cover, huh? It appears not beautiful enough for Sports Illustrated. Strasburg, the second coming of Jesus, got the national cover. So for those of us lucky enough to live in the Chicago area get this cover. Now go buy it! Oh and while you're there make sure to buy the Chicago Tribune book on the Hawks. It's full of pretty picture and heartwarming articles.


-The Hawks signed Mathis Olimb to a one year contract:

"Olimb, 24, spent the 2009-10 season with Frolunda of the Swedish Elite League, leading the team with 25 assists and ranking third with 34 points in 55 regular-season contests. He added four points (G,3A) in seven postseason games. Previously Olimb registered 80 points (27G,53A) in 97 regular-season contests from 2007-09 with Augsburg in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga."

-The Cup made the rounds today. As you saw earlier Sharp took it to Eric and Kathy, then Ladd brought it too US99.5: Watch the video here

The Cup also went player-less to the Tribune and CSN:

Yesterday, the Cup took a break from all it's partying and stopped by Children's Memorial Hospital: "At 10 a.m., Quenneville, with the Stanley Cup in hand, strolled into the hospital, sailed past startled gawkers in the corridors and waited behind a curtain while the little patients were summoned by resident storyteller Dot Kane, decked out in a Blackhawks jersey. Kane chirped to the children: "I have a surprise for you." Then the Blackhawks anthem played, the curtain rose, confetti was dispensed -- and the Cup appeared!" (source)



-NHL.com asked who should win the Norris? Keith couldn't be a more obvious answer, even to NHL.com. In their recent article: Stating our case for the Norris Winner, they went through each player and explained why they should win.
For Keith, their last sentence said it all: "In every category that matters, Keith comes out on top."
I think they answered their own question.

For more on Keith, The Vancouver Sun had an article on how he got to all-star status: Keith has had a long climb


-Random:

If you live on Blackhawks road you might want to protect your road sign or steal it yourself: PuckDaddy: Blackhawks steal fans' hearts; fans steal Blackhawk Road signs

If you want to get all emotional and shed a tear or two remembering the win just a week ago, then this is the article for you: Daily Herald: The Hawks' will to win a rare and special quality The last two sentences really got me: "It's what makes fans want to hold onto to this team and remember it forever. It's what makes a team the Stanley Cup champions."

Having withdrawal from Hockey, specially Stanley Cup hockey? Well, the NHL Network is here for you: NHL.com: Spend Saturday with Stanley on NHL Network

The Canadiens took the big first jump of the summer and dealt Jaroslav Halak to St. Louis: Canadiens deal playoff hero Halak to the Blues Now we wait anxiously and nervously for the rest of the NHL/Hawks to start too.
