Cubs' Sveum happy for Blackhawks
By Bruce Levine
MILWAUKEE -- Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum enjoyed the Chicago Blackhawks' second Stanley Cup in four years and wonders what the scene in the city might look like if his Cubs team wins a World Series someday.
"Of course it was the talk of the clubhouse," Sveum said. "Our guys understand that the (celebration) would be 10 times that if we ever won ... That whole (Wrigleyville) area and every street will look like that (party on Clark Street Monday night)."
Sveum was an avid fan of the Blackhawks as they made their run to the Cup, capped by two goals 17 seconds apart late in Game 6 to beat the Boston Bruins.
"Just knowing that was the ultimate goal and watching the reaction on Clark Street last night. Just watching what happened in the last minute and 17 seconds and thinking we would miss Game 7 because we are playing (Wednesday). All of a sudden they won the game and to be part of that in the city was pretty cool."
