OT: Hilarious Hawks Billboard / Cup Jinx
 
http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puc...urn=nhl,231193

I didn't see anything posted here about this yet, but if it's old news that I'm just noticing please forgive me.

This is so awesome, for so many reasons....

ProPAIN 03-31-2010 09:20 AM

The city of Chicago just jinxed the **** out of their cup hopes. They really embarrassed themselves on so many levels with this one.

slapshots1515 03-31-2010 09:23 AM

the sort of FAIL you'd expect from teams with fans that only started caring about their teams once they got good again.

Huddy* 03-31-2010 09:29 AM

My brother lives in the city and ya umm theres plans to take it down so he hears. Love the Jinx tho..this is awesome.

First comes Hossa
Then comes this
now comes the disappearing act

Harold Snepsts 03-31-2010 10:28 AM

Wow. They might as well go ahead and post the planned parade route in the newspaper, for the jinx hat trick.

You gotta give the Hawks marketing a ton of credit, they actually seem to have convinced fans that the team already won the cup and that Toews is the next Yzerman.

Not hard when they don't know anything...

I mean, just saying...

BBAD idea people... If Detroit ever did this, I would personally tear it down and burn it.

I'll fly all the way to Detroit to destroy that piece of ****. But the city of Detroit is smart enough not to jinx their own team.

Kwame would have built a mural of himself, but then he didn't need any help jinxing himself.

Kwame probably wouldn't have given himself a pig nose either...

YzermanWings19 03-31-2010 09:09 PM

Oh please, this whole jinx idea is ridiculous.

















They already signed Marian Hossa months ago. :lol:

Blackhawkswincup 03-31-2010 09:18 PM

This mural was embarrasing (Cup) and hilarious (Toews / Pigman)

zetterberg40 03-31-2010 09:35 PM

Toews sucks. Kane is better.

hexrae 03-31-2010 09:50 PM

Besides playing for Chicago, I appreciate Toews as he is a Winnipeg boy. But c'mon, a cup and he's sporting a pig nose? :shakehead

meh, with Dollar Bill they had no choice but to stop giving a **** about their team. that guy dying is one of the best things that ever happened to that team.
"too bad" somebody is trying to undo all the good karma with this beaut.

I was about to say fair point...but then I thought about Lions fans (sorry to cross sports). But maybe that's a special breed.

Human Thumb* 03-31-2010 10:16 PM

Why not have a mural of Bobby Hull?

ZDH 03-31-2010 10:30 PM

so much fail....so much fail

At least Lions fans could watch home games on tv (Unless blacked out by NFL policy of course)

Probably because they are marketing the hell out of Toews and Kane after olympics.

I would much rather see a mural of Rocky Wirtz ,,,, The man that saved the Blackhawks :nod:

I remember back in late 90's a mural with Jordan and Pippen on it and it basically guaranteed a championship. Of course that was after Bulls went 72-10 in 96 along with a 15-3 record in playoffs that year.

Alot easier to be sure of Bulls wiping floor with everyone back then.

There is talk of the Mural getting painted over or altered right now

I concede that. Very hard to care about a team you can't watch, true enough. I had forgotten that whole part of the debacle.

at the very least fix his ****ing nose...I could draw a better one on acid

Drunkspleen 04-01-2010 02:15 AM

just paint around the nose so toews is looking up in the air distraught and then paint in a picture of sid hugging the cup, jinx shifted, crisis averted.

Yeah, but Kane is a tool. I rather have Toews on my team since he won't have too many off-ice controversies and he is a pretty decent player.

Toews sucks?

um, sure.


they're both talented young players. Kane will score you bucketloads of points, but Toews will win you Cups.

plus Kane seems like a ******.

Toews changed my mind a bit during the Olympics, but I haven't seen enough to say that he'll lead any team to anything. Especially not with their goaltending as it stands.
