Gary Bettman handles boos from Blackhawks fans like a champ

This guy's heard it all before.

Remember when Gary Bettman was universally loathed? Me neither, because the NHL commissioner seems to be more likable every time he shows up in front of a camera these days.

Nothing sums this up better than how Bettman handles boos from fans now. It's tradition for arenas to boo lustily whenever Bettman is in the house, and the Chicago Blackhawks ranks didn't disappoint during their 2015 Stanley Cup championship banner-raising ceremonies on Wednesday.

But Bettman didn't just seem unfazed by the jeers, he looked downright gleeful.

Do not boo Gary Bettman. He feeds off your jeers and basks in your hatred now.
