Chicago Blackhawks fan sits in seat, wins $1 million

012209million.jpgCary Stolarczyk got way more than he bargained for when he attended Monday night's Chicago Blackhawks game.

Stolarczyk, who is described as a mild-mannered single guy from the suburbs, was informed before the game that if the Blackhawks scored with exactly 10 minutes remaining in the second period, he'd win $1 million.

So when Martin Havlat lit the lamp at exactly that time, you can imagine he was pretty excited.
""I could not believe it. I think there was a lot of cursing . . . glad my mother wasn't there," Stolarczyk (pronounced sto-LAR-zik) told reporters before attending Wednesday night's Blackhawks game."
This makes all the free doughnuts won at Bulls and White Sox games taste a little worse, but I'll blame that on the jealously.
