WSH@CHI: Olczyk analyzes kids enjoying ice cream

Eddie Olczyk breaks down three young boys enjoying their ice cream cones during the Capitals-Blackhawks game at the United Center

Ice cream cones and hockey, that's what Ed Olczyk does.

The Chicago Blackhawks announcer and former NHL center was fired up as three young fans chowed down on frozen treats in the stands during Chicago's game against the Washington Capitals at United Center on Friday.

"First off, I'm gonna be an analyst. These guys look like brothers, OK, just for the record," Olczyk said during the broadcast.

It was an encore performance from when Olczyk pulled the original gag in March. This time there was no telestrater, but just as much enthusiasm.

"Look at the style! Look at how they attack the soft-serve ice cream here at the United Center. One's got chocolate, one's got mint chocolate chip, the other one looks like it's a little vanilla-ish," Olczyk exclaimed. "Look at these guys. Those are happy humans right there."

Who wouldn't be?
