The St. Louis Blues spent their first day back home on the balcony of a Brentwood, MO bar called OB. Clark’s. Blues players and alumni cheered with the crowd gathered below, signed items that were tossed high enough to reach them, and, drank celebratory drinks.
In 2018, TJ Oshie went viral when he chugged an entire beer through his t-shirt during the post-parade celebration on the National Mall. A year later, Blues’ forward Jaden Schwartz took the celebration to the next level by chugging directly from Lord Stanley’s Cup.
A Capitals and Blues fan in Missouri sent RMNB the video.

Lydia, who captured the action on film, went to OB. Clark’s to continue the celebrations that started in St. Louis Wednesday night where both Busch Stadium and the Enterprise Center were full to watch Game Seven in Boston. The partying continued Thursday after the Blues returned.
Schwartz was an unexpected star for the Blues during the playoffs. After scoring only 13 goals in 69 regular season games (nice), he scored 12 in 26 playoff games (nicer). Teammates Mackenzie MacEachern and Alexander Steen were holding the Cup for Schwartz as he knelt down, white t-shirt pulled up over his head, and had himself a well-deserved drink.
Here’s how it compared to Oshie’s chug.
Schwartz and TJ Oshie played together on the Blues from 2011 until Oshie was traded to the Capitals in 2015. The two were close–when the Capitals came through St. Louis on their annual mentors’ trip, they met up for dinner.
Oshie told his former team congratulations on Twitter after their victory and told them to enjoy the celebration.
Congratulations to the @StLouisBlues and the City of St. Louis on winning the Stanley Cup. Very well deserved! Enjoy the celebration! 😉
