Olympic fun in the Hawks' locker room

kane88.jpgThere's a bit of a disagreement in the Hawks' dressing room right now. The players can't seem to agree on which Olympic teammate is going to cry on Sunday after the USA-Canada gold-medal game.

Adam Burish said he thinks Brent Seabrook will cry if Canada wins, and "he'll probably point at his girlfriend and wave at her. He'll have tears coming down his back and [Duncan Keith] will have his arm over his shoulder, kind of rubbing his back a little bit."

Patrick Sharp believes Jonathan Toews will be the one "you see tears from."

Kris Versteeg said Kane "win or lose, he's going to cry. That's pretty much what it comes down to."

Tears aside, all eyes will be watching the gold-medal game on Sunday. And there should be a few bets here and there as the Hawks root for their own countries.

"I'd like to make the bet if Canada wins, [Burish has] to shave his head and get rid of that long hair he cares about so much," Sharp said. "We'll try to work something out."

Burish doesn't plan to shave his head anytime soon. But if USA does win, he plans to redecorate the Hawks' locker room.

"If they win, I'm going to get this place decorated in all red, white and blue," said Burish, one of the few American-born Hawks. "I'm going to get balloons. I'm going to have streamers and flags. I'm going to decorate this place pretty good and rub it in everyone's faces."

"God help us all if U.S. wins," Sharp said.

Here's Johnny

On a more serious note, John Madden (lower-body) skated with the team Saturday and said he hopes to play Tuesday in New York against the Islanders.
