The Blackhawks might have found a new two-way center in Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo
Anthony Rizzo has been a busy, busy man this offseason. He's been working his butt off to ensure that he's in the best shape of his life heading into Spring Training. He's been participating in Q&As on Twitter (and trolling Dan Haren). He's been congratulating his teammate Kris Bryant on his recent engagement (and trolling him, too). And now he's trying to be a two-sport star:
On the eve of the Powerball drawing, the Cubs' power-hitting first baseman was the guest of honor at Tuesday night's Blackhawks game. Chicago's NHL franchise hosted Rizzo at the United Center, and blasted his dashing mug all over the massive scoreboard that hangs above center ice. Oh, and they did it while Taylor Swift was blasting throughout the arena.
The Cubs slugger later walked out beneath that massive scoreboard and fired a shot toward the net in the name of charity. Representing his very own Rizzo Foundation, Rizzo grabbed the stick, lined up his shot ... and fired:
Juuuust a bit outside. Where's Bob Uecker when ya need him? Good thing Rizzo has a decent day job (and back-to-back 30-homer seasons) to fall back on.
