Christian Laettner stars in new March Madness commercial


Chicago Blackhawks play-by-play announcer Pat Foley made a young fan's dreams come true recently when he left a special voice mail for her on her father's phone.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, 7-year-old Simone is a huge fan of the team, and recently got a behind-the-scenes tour of the United Center, where she got a chance to skate on the team's home ice.

When her uncle saw Foley walk into the bar he works at he knew he had to ask him to record a message for his niece, and Foley was happy to oblige, leaving a friendly message that ends with a personalized goal call with Simone on the ice with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews.

Simone's family played the message for her at her seventh birthday party, much to the young fan's surprise and delight.
