SHARE Olbermann slams Blackhawks over selling of ice

Oh, Keith Olbermann. He’s back on ESPN (where he always belonged) with his nightly show and he’s still cantankerous. The latest subject of his ire: the Blackhawks. It seems Keith didn’t take too kindly to the Blackhawks’ selling off of chunks of their ice from last year’s Stanley Cup season. There’s plenty of room for skepticism: I can throw some ice cubs in a jar and tell you it came from the UC ice. But Keith is hardly ever one to hold back and he certainly doesn’t as he dubbed the Hawks one of “The Worst Person [People] in the Sports World.” Of course, the Blackhawks are doing so the benefit the Blackhawks Charities as Keith notes so Keith’s scorn was a little over-the-top on this one. But just a little bit. It is bottled water and only slightly more expensive than a bottle of water would cost you at a game.
