Jersey Fouls Extra: Johnny Oduya inspires Blackhawks’ fans wedding attire
Jersey Fouls is our ongoing exploration of the rules and etiquette for proper hockey jersey creation and exhibition. If you spot what you think may be a foul in your arena, email a photo to us at email@example.com for inclusion in future installment.
Hockey-themed weddings aren't anything new. Bridal parties decked out in hockey jerseys; matrimonial face-offs; Rene Rancourt singing the national anthem at a reception. Some creative stuff has been done.
Then there's these two Chicago Blackhawks fans:
This photo was posted on Pinterest Sunday and little information about the couple is available at the moment, except that they got very cute when it came time to walk down the aisle. Be honest: how many times have you used Johnny Oduya's surname as part of a pun?
When the couple were asked that all-important question at the end of the ceremony, did they just turn around?
UPDATE: Here's the bride, Gina, with details:
"It was Saturday, April 20th in Bloomingdale, IL. I would love to say we actually got married in the jerseys, but we didn't. We had a regular ceremony but then surprised everyone at the reception when we played Chelsea Dagger. This pic was taken once the song was over on the dancefloor and everyone wanted us to stop and pose. Everyone loved it. We loved it! We're die hard Blackhawks fans showing our support and having a little fun with it. We hope everyone thinks it was as fun and creative as we did!"
