Chicago Blackhawks fans celebrate Stanley Cup with toilet paper

Some fans like to celebrate a championship by smashing store windows and setting cars on fire.

Others prefer the civic unity of a downtown parade.


It seems that at least a few Chicago Blackhawks fans are more old school. As in high school.

A photograph making the Twitter rounds on Tuesday morning showed what appeared to be the home of Blackhawks Coach Joel Quenneville, the trees and lawn out front festooned with toilet paper.


Yes, someone apparently TP’d his house after Chicago finished off the Boston Bruins, scoring two goals in the final 90 seconds to win Game 6 and secure the Stanley Cup.

The same thing happened back in 2010, when the Blackhawks last won the title.

On Monday night, thousands of fans gathered in downtown Chicago, where there were minimal reports of violence. A few bottles thrown. A few people detained by police.

“It was one of those seasons,” Quenneville said in Boston. “Fairy-tale ending and an amazing season.”
