Patrick Sharp of the Chicago Blackhawks has found a berth on the city's No. 1-rated morning drive show fronted by Eric Ferguson and Kathy Hart on WTMX-FM (101.9). The segment, appropriately called "Sharp Attack," will air every Thursday morning at around 8:40 a.m. for the duration of the hockey season. And that season could be extended quite a bit, as the Hawks are expected to be in the playoffs for the Stanley Cup.
In his first chat with Eric and Kathy, Sharp talked about the team's recently-returned Olympic players, and Ferguson speculated about what caused the Blackhawks to perk up in the third period of Wednesday's home game against the Edmonton Oilers, which the Hawks eventually won. Ferguson said he thought the coach might have thrown a chair in the locker room to get the team motivated for the decisive third period. But Sharp said what actually got the team fired up was seeing a big image of Ferguson on the United Center Jumbotron. Ferguson then confirmed that he indeed attended Wednesday's game and that a shot of him flashed on the big screen.
