Rahm Emanuel Is Calling The Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup The ‘Miracle On Ice.’ Not Like Mayors Should Know History…

  • Matt Rudnitsky

Ah, the ubiquitous “Miracle on Ice” of 1980. A historic moment in sports history, as well as American history.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel does not subscribe to ubiquity. Or he’s just a really big Blackhawks fan who thinks that the team’s Game 6 miracle to win the 2013 Stanley Cup is not just a miracle, but the Miracle. Patriotism, be damned, for Chicagoism.

The embarrassment multiplies each time this Vine video re-plays.
