7 Things The Blackhawks Should Do With The Stanley Cup

For the third time in the last six years, our favorite Canadians, Swedes and Finnish (with the occasional Slovak) have represented Chicago by being athletically superior than everyone else at running on frozen water with knives attached to their feet. Not to mention while using the explosion of puberty that occurs during the playoffs to nest an entire colony of endangered birds in their beards.

As tradition goes, every player on the winning team gets to spend a day with Lord Stanley’s cup, doing just about whatever they want with it. However, before Patrick Kane uses it to take a bath full of Absinthe and make poor life decisions, the Hawks should consider putting it to better use with the following...

1. Use it as a mirror to shave.


They’ve already accumulated a plethora of free plastic razors from Schick in the mail that most 7thgrade boys get during health class. Despite the many movie offers that Hawks players have received to play Grizzly Adams in the upcoming thriller Shave Another Day, things didn’t work out in fear of female audience members automatically becoming pregnant upon viewing.

2. Melt it down and create a metal knee for Derrick Rose.


Perhaps one of the most unlucky of men in Chicago right after Steve Bartman, Derrick Rose has been cursed with having a knee made of glass and cotton candy. With a metal knee made up of the Stanley Cup, maybe we wouldn’t have to worry anymore about Rose going down with a crippling knee injury after shooting a free throw.

3. Collect Cubs fans’ tears and send it to a drought-ridden California.


The Cubs’ haven't won a championship in 106 years. Pair that with mother nature’s best effort to flood Chicago into one giant Shedd Aquarium, and we have more than enough water-works to share around. Let’s be good citizens and send some California’s way.

4. Slap a White Sox hat on it and put it in the Cell.


The average White Sox attendance will then at least increase to 1.

5. Knock Jay Cutler unconscious.


Let's hope that he forgets he’s the Bears quarterback, gets cut from the team after not showing up for training camp and spends the rest of his days as a Chicago Sky beer vendor. (Do they even have beer vendors?)

6. Create an adult film entitled 6 Seasons, 3 Cups.


With a movie starring Johnny Oduya, do you want to see this film? O-ya-u-do!

7. Put it on top of the SEARS Tower and use it as a lightning rod.


Hehe… get it?!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
