Pop the champagne the champs are here. This week three champions were crowned in the NBA, NHL and PGA. The Chicago Blackhawks started the champagne campaign off Monday when they took home their third Stanley Cup in five years making them hockey’s new modern dynasty. That also gave the Hawks duo Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane their third title at the age of 27 as they prove to be the hockey apparent of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.
The next champs to be crowned were the Golden State Warriors. Led by the unlikely heroics of Finals MVP Andre Iguodala and MVP Stephen Curry the Dubs were able to hold LeBron James down (relatively) and win the franchise’s first title since 1975. Our final champ comes from the docile sport of golf. Rising star Jordan Spieth won the U.S. Open giving him his second consecutive major title (The Masters being the other).
All of this and I still didn’t mention Alex Rodriguez joining the 3000 hit club. See what other moments were strong enough to make the countdown in this week’s edition of Sporting*Goods.
