The Blackhawks' second Stanley Cup win in four years isn't only inspiring to them, the fans and other hockey players, but it also serves as motivation for a Chicago Bear cornerback.

“Looking at the Blackhawks play and watching them celebrate and watching the parade, I’m jealous because I want that,” Charles (Peanut) Tillman told WSCR-AM 670. “That’s why you play the game."

Seeing the two million fans line Michigan Avenue as the Blackhawks rolled thru on double-decker buses showcasing the Stanley Cup will be the vision in Tillman's mind when he and the rest Bears begin training camp this week, per the Charles Tillman Cornerstone 33 foundation.

“I just want to win a Super Bowl. That’s the bottom line. That’s why I’m busting my -ss; trying to win a Super Bowl. I want that parade down Michigan Avenue in February,” Tillman said. Adding that's not only his mind set but the mind set of the team.

Could the City of Chicago be celebrating yet another major championship in Feburary? Tillman and the Bears sound like they are ready to do whatever is necessary to make that happen.
