At this point, it’s OK to feel raging jealously over the Chicago Blackhawks. Not only are they on a 21-game point streak to start the season, obliterating the previous NHL record; but apparently their national anthem singer’s voice can be weaponized.
Here is the great Jim Cornelison, anthem singer for Blackhawks home games, singing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” at the “Toast for Harry” on Feb. 28 at the Navy Pier in Chicago – and shattering glasses when he hits the finale note. Amazing:
We imagine the Chicago Cubs' legendary broadcaster Harry Caray, who would have turned 99 years old this week, would have been honored by Cornelison’s feat ... and horrified by all the beer that was spilled as a result of it.
Another glimpse of the glass-shattering performance:
Put Jim Cornelison in a bar, and good things happen. Now we’re pulling hard for a Chicago vs. Boston Bruins matchup in the Stanley Cup Final, if only for the dueling greatness of Corny vs. Rene Rancourt.
