Both Chuck and I are drowning in work today, but over the weekend hockey players were dancing. Emergency post.
Remember last year’s Blackhawks Convention, when we thought nothing could ever top this?
Phone booth not included.
Patrick Kane heard us. And declared shenanigans.
Bless this girl who gets up to the mic and asks Toews & Kane for a dance off. Bless her to the WUYS Hall of Fame, where Intern Jeff Skinner will bring her favorite non-alcoholic beverage and some candy, stat. Watch this the entire way through [VIDEO]. If you don’t survive the combination of squirm-inducing awkwardness and dance moves, consider yours an honorable death.

What have we learned? Jonathan Toews is fun. At least sometimes.
He boldly teases Kaner then quickly remembers who he’s talking to and tries to retract. Luckily Corey Crawford is right there for us. Once you get it Jon, it’s yours. No takebacks.
This is my danceface.
Other lessons: You can’t beat Patrick Kane. Give him an inch and he’ll turn his mile into an almost-lap dance for the ages.
All while looking spectacularly handsome. Really, WHAT is going on there? Every summer, Patrick Kane sheds his Patrick Kane-ness and turns up looking like that hot counselor you never got at tennis camp. He checked his reflection in the Conn Smythe Trophy and we promise, Pat, everybody likes what they see.
Shave and a haircut, two bits.
While it’s true that maybe the Blackhawks have had enough winning for a while, they sure do make it look good.
There are a zillion other highlights from this event that I haven’t had time to watch. Tumblr and Google away, friends. Start with more great photos at photographybykm.tumblr.com.
I’ll be watching this on repeat for
two months a while.
