The Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks have been taking the Cup everywhere, being offered free beer in Wrigleyville, and being celebrated in their hometowns.â†µ
Jonathan Toews will be bringing the Cup to his home in Winnipeg this weekend, where they'll have a parade in his honor; but before that even happens, the province of Manitoba is giving the Hawks captain a unique immortalization:â†µ
The announcement came from Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger on CJOB radio this morning, as Toews prepares to bring the Stanley Cup to Winnipeg on Sunday:â†µ
“We’re going to name a lake after him. Manitoba has 100,000 lakes. I know Jonathan likes to fish with his dad; he’s been up at Aikens Lake, fishing up there. So we’re going to name a lake after him.”â†µ
A lake for winning the Cup. Wonder what the city of Chicago could do to top that for any Cub on a World Series winner.
