Blackhawks fan celebrates with Stanley Cup of his own

PEORIA -- Monday night's Stanley Cup Final wasn't just a special night for the Blackhawks. It was also a special night for a father and son. Evan is a die-hard Blackhawks fan who doesn't miss a game. He usually watches them with his dad at home in Peoria.

Monday, his dad was out of town, so mom drove him to DeKalb so they could watch the playoff game together. Not only did Evan get to watch his team win the Stanley Cup, he also got one of his own.

"Everybody was trying to get a picture with me. Somebody actually thought I was famous," Evan said.

He has a cup made from foam and tin foil. He says he'll remember the Blackhawks win for the rest of his life.
