Chicago native Jim Belushi was at Monday night's Blackhawks game, and during the second intermission, got distracted from his interview by a woman participating in the team's promotional "Shoot the Puck" experience (in heels, no less).
Why Jim Belushi has to be the mascot for Chicago sports escapes me. Belushi makes some crude jokes but attempts to disguise them as hockey tips (something about leaning over the stick), while CSN's Susannah Collins tries to steer him away from that kind of talk. It's not the first time an awkward encounter has occured during "Shoot the Puck." A fan once told former CSN reporter Sarah Kustok that he loved her... on air. Come to think of it, maybe that fan is who Belushi was trying to one up instead of Joe Namath. At least Belushi didn't try to kiss anyone.
H/T CSN Chicago
@awfulannouncing never was. He's an embarrassment to Chicago, makes any event he's a part of dumber. We need some real celebs.
@awfulannouncing he embarrasses us. Yes, I speak for EVERY Chicagoan, trust me.
@awfulannouncing SportsCenter is brutalizing analysis (buccigross and smith) Learn something if we are leading the show w Soccer boys
%s If you ask me, he was acting a bit like Harvey from "Trading Places". Only thing missing was gorilla suit %s
@susannahcollins Why is Comcast promoting this on website?
@awfulannouncing let's be real. If there were no John Belushi, there'd be no 'famous' Jim Belushi.
@susannahcollins the best was..."the girl and the kid managed to do it." Nice little dig. He doesn't represent Chicago! You were awesome!
@awfulannouncing It sounded like the reporter was a little more creepy and over the line than Jim. She took it more out of context...
@susannahcollins wow what a creep lol, you handled it very well.
@susannahcollins Can I just say that you are absolutely delightful.
@susannahcollins he seemed drunk...his brother actually had talent, Jim just has his last name
@awfulannouncing A mascot? Hardly. Belushi is the nutjob cousin who yells "look at me" that you wish would not show up at family events.
@susannahcollins thats got to be tough to deal with, but you did a great job!
@susannahcollins The ironic part is the station has no problem with showing an attractive young woman for each contest
@awfulannouncing he's a media mascot, not a fan mascot. He's also a toolbox and a half
@mlathrop11 was it me or did Kasey Keller say no more than 3 words tonight? Post game he looked like he just wandered into the booth
@JamalCollier Thanks, Jamal. Just one of those things you have to deal with. Gotta love live television. :)
@susannahcollins No problem
@KeenaMcGee Thank you. :)
