The Chicago Blackhawks pushed themselves to the brink of elimination against the Detroit Red Wings after only four games in the Western Conference semifinals, but they somehow rattled off three straight victories to take the series. Some will argue that they stepped up in a big way with their backs against the wall, but a woman named Shannon would tell you it was her dog Ivy’s bowel movements that sparked the comeback.
Shannon shared her story with the Eric and Kathy Morning Show on 101.9 FM Chicago this week. She said she takes Ivy, her lab mix, for walks in their neighborhood every day. Blackhawks center Patrick Sharp happens to live in the same neighborhood. Simply put, Shannon claims Chicago wins every time Ivy poops on Sharp’s lawn.
