The Chicago Blackhawks earned a 2-0 shutout win over the Calgary Flames Tuesday, but it was Mr. T that stole the show.
The A-Team and Rocky III star took part in a Shoot the Puck competition during the second intermission and as he made his way to centre ice at the United Center – fittingly enough donning a customized No. 7 ‘Mr. T’ Blackhawks jersey – he was met with a round of applause.
Mr. T, a longtime Blackhawks fan, took part in the same Shoot the Puck competition in 2011, but didn’t manage to put the puck in the net. He joked Tuesday that his experience in 2011 prepared him for the task at hand.
Back home to cheer the Blackhawks to victory tonight. I like hockey ’cause it’s rough, it’s tough and it’s on ice. Grrrrrr.
