Truer Words Never Spoken

Adam Burish

So a quick two part post on this hot and muggy Wednesday afternoon. First, puckdaddy over at Yahoo! has repoprted that six teams will have alternative/additional looks this season. The coolest of which has to be the Chicago Blackhawks, who will be sporting their Winter Classic jerseys as the third jersey instead of the all black third jersey.

Additionally, I wanted to add that Adam Burish is considered the 26th most eligible single in Chicago, great news for him, I guess, and you lady Logers out there. I wanted to bring to everyone’s attention Burish’s take on “hockey groupies”. When Burish was asked, at the second annual Blackhawks Convention, what he does when a fan approaches him and tried to make out with him, his response was “What does she look like?”. Well played Mr. Burish. Although the report states Adam answered the question half jokingly, I’m sure there’s quite a bit of truth behind that comment. And no doubt Burish and Eager tear up the Chicago scene in the off-season.

Of all the panel discussions I heard on Sunday July 19th, the second most memorable moment (the first being the announcement that Chicago will wear their black Winter Classic jerseys as their official third sweater next season) was Burish being asked “What do you do when a fan approaches you and tries to make out with you?” Burish half-jokingly responded, “What does she look like?”

In the segment entitled “Chicago’s Most Wanted,” Burish was joined by Brian Campbell, Patrick Sharp, Tony Amonte and Steve Larmer to converse about being a celebrity in a sports-obsessed town. To further validate the point of this exercise, the Continental Ballroom packed in a standing room only crowd to hear this topic. When asked about groupies Burish said at the beginning of his response “Is this G, PG, PG-13, Is this X? You need to direct me where to go.” The panel host, WGN’s Steve Cochran, responded “Given the high amount of 11-year olds and Grandmothers here, let’s go with PG for now.”

“There’s some crazy female fans, you see them when you’re on the road, but I have to give some of these girls some credit, because they know what time you’re getting in. I don’t know what time practice is half the time, but they know. They know what time I’m getting in, they know where practice is. They know things about my Mom, my sister that I don’t even know. But whatever, it’s cool, it’s funny. These girls aren’t doing any harm, they’re not disrespecting anybody. Except for the ones that are knocking down your door at 4 in the morning,” Burish said regarding the stalkers and drunken groupies of the hockey world.

Either way, the NBC Chicago Street Team has more coverage on this event, and more insight on Burish’s groupie scene along with a little political correctness from Brian Campbell.

Thanks to the NBC Chicago Street Team for the coverage.
