Moment of Silence/National Anthem, United Center - 4/15/13
My recording from the rafters of the moment of silence for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, followed by Jim Cornelison’s National Anthem prior to tonight’s Blackhawks game. I had the chills.
You could have heard a pin drop. And then in the next moment you couldn’t hear anything at all. Beautiful.
"Anybody that has won a championship will tell you it creates a completely different kind of bond that you’ve never had with any team,” Burish said. “The last time all of us were together with no media, no family, no cameras, no coaches was the flight home from Philadelphia. That was the last time we were all together, just us in the back of the plane with the Stanley Cup. My hope for this game here was a chance to do that again. At least we’re all on the same team again. From a selfish standpoint, I miss a lot of things,” Burish said “I miss just being in the room with Patrick Sharp. I miss him on the road being my roommate. I miss going to dinner with Patrick Kane and talking about the game. I miss watching Jonathan Toews and how he works and how he prepares, and making fun of him. I miss Big Buff’s careless attitude."
