Hawks rock


The Blackhawks kept their Stanley Cup dream alive by knocking off the dreaded Red Wings in OT last night. Patrick Sharp scored his second goal less than 2 minutes into the period. The Red Wings lead the series 2-1.

Of course, each time the Hawks score fans are subjected to that ubiquitous Fratellis’ song, “Chelsea Dagger.” Apparently, the band didn’t know the song — also used to hock Amstel Light — was the jock jam for the Hawks, according to the Chicago Tribune. The tune definitely has become the latest “Tubthumping.”

While the Fratellis may be dismissed as dumb frat rock, I think the band’s songs and overall flamboyance are more comparable to ’70s glam. I love the audacity of the band’s videos.
