If I had Photoshop at work, I’d make a picture of Jonathan Toews wearing a pair of Olympic gold medals and a pair of bootyshorts, standing atop two Stanley Cups, a Conn Smythe trophy, the city of Chicago and your boyfriend’s hopes and dreams of ever being good enough. Since I don’t, this ought to give you the idea.
Or maybe his selection to Rant Sports’ 15 Pro Athletes Who Would Steal Your Girlfriend in a Heartbeat. Jon is listed at #1.
Happy 26th birthday, Jonathan Toews.
We didn’t get to talk a lot about the Blackhawks this season, consumed as we were with life in the East. If I could freeze time to watch hockey, I’d never miss a Toews game. Chicago didn’t replicate last year’s season-start winning streak, they didn’t win the conference or even their division. But they did just win four in a row to put down the Blues and advance to Round 2 like they owned the place. And after two Cups in four years, maybe they do.
I could talk forever about Tazer. Suffice to say I wish he played for my team, or barring that I wish I got to watch him more often. If I had kids – boys or girls, fans or players – Toews is who I would tell them to watch. Nowadays, they might even learn to have a little fun.
Past JT19 birthday celebrations: 2011; 2012; 2013 As the Blackhawks await the winner of the Wild/Avalanche series, we hope Jon puts these days off to good use. Rest that beat-up arm, do some squats, have some cake. We’ll see you soon.Tags: Chicago Blackhawks, jonathan toews
