Watch packed Chicago bar react to Blackhawks' two goals in 17 seconds
The Blackhawks scored the game-tying goal and then game-winning goal within a span of just 17 seconds in the closing minutes on Monday night in Boston to clinch the Stanley Cup Final in six games. It led to this awesome bar video back in Chicago.
It seems to be all the rage today to videotape sports fans in their natural habitat -- watching their favorite team in an immense game and usually with alcohol involved.
This video comes from a Chicago bar. In the two-minute video, you watch the fans go through the roller-coaster of the Blackhawks trailing late by a goal, tying the score and then taking the lead just 17 seconds later. They had barely even finished singing Chelsea Dagger before the all-too-familiar song started back up again with the bar patrons going nuts in celebration.
This is why it's awesome to be a sports fan. I imagine the only people not getting goosebumps watching that are people who don't like sports. Or Bruins fans. Otherwise, that's tremendous.
That will be the most memorable 17 seconds for a lot of people in that bar. It's great that's recorded for them all to see again.
