There are T-shirts for sale. We’ve seen many personalized jerseys commemorating the event.
But this … this one is on another level.
The Blackhawks jersey, snapped by Jason Butler, is on another level as far as Commemoration Jerseys go.
Not only is it a “17 Seconds” jersey, but it features Cup-winning scorer Dave Bolland battling Andrew Ference and Tuukka Rask of the Bruins in a recreation of that historic tally. It’s like a walking mural dedicated to Blackhawks glory, only without the pig nose.
It’s a heck of a piece of hockey art, even if it’s a total Foul.
If nothing else, we imagine it’s another thing from the 2013 playoffs that Gregory Campbell would refuse to sign.
Coming up, more Blackhawks Fouls, a dirty Duck, some Devilish sweaters and other offenses to humanity.
And here … we … go.oh, right, we’ve already seen it.
From the mecca of Jersey Fouls (Shark Tank in San Jose). There's a thousand uses for duct tape. This is not one of them. You take the jersey of a five time All-Star, and do this to it? For a rookie who's scored all of 4 points? SMH! But it gets better. This is a grown man, wearing a kids Shark head gear even!
OK, that last part, we can’t defend. But again, there’s no problem with someone taking duct tape and creating another nameplate with it. This is a staple of Protest Jerseys … even if this one seems to be a bit more about being too lazy/cash poor to buy a new sweater.
I can appreciate the rivalry between the Hawks and Wings with it being our 800th meeting and Game 1 of the conference semifinals. I have no love for the Wings, but I had to do a double take when I saw this guy doing his best Pocahantas impression. It was no easy task trying to take a photo as I moved through the 100 level concourse during a sellout using a cellphone without getting caught.
While Detroit may suck, I did feel that this was worthy of inclusion in jersey fouls and would not let the crowd or a moving target deter me from snapping a photo. Thanks.
Well, at least Daniel Snyder’s off the hook for the time being.
Finally, from Jersey:New Jersey Devils’ new season.
