4 for 4 Major Drama in Chicago Sports

I know this is going be be kind of a "homer" post, but I can't remember a time when 4 of Chicago's sports team played on the same day and they all won!!

It was a whirlwind day for a Chicago sports fan that started at 11:30am CST with an overtime win by the Bulls on the road against the current Champions, the Boston Celtics. 105-103

By the time that game was over the Cubs-Cardinals game had started in a classic dual between these division rivals that didn't end until a 2-run walk-off home run by Aramis Ramirez in the bottom of the 11th. 7-5

Next came an excellent pitching match-up in the Sox-Rays game, featuring head to head competition by staff aces Mark Buerhle and Scott Kazmir. The Sox won in dominating fashion 8-3.

Then came the feautured event, like the main match in boxing. Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs of the Flames-Blackhawks series. After another sluggish start, the Hawks rebounded in the second period with 3 unanswered goals in an exhibition of "a goalie standing on his head" by Nikolai Khabibulin. 3-2

What a sports day!!
