what the hell are you spouting off about? The murals on that building (mostly known as the Bigsby and Kruthers building, but I think now Bank of America owns it) are usually awesome.

And how can you automatically assume that the idiot/s who painted it are northsiders?

Are you sure this wasn't done by some other hockey team in an attempt to mock the hawks? The helmet and cup look really well done...the face on the other hand...

Take a look for yourself.




BTW, we've apparently already won the cup, so don't bother trying
His mom tried to warn him if he kept taping his nostrils up, they'd stay that way. Guess he never listened.

That's no tribute to Toews. It's a tribute to the Twilight Zone.

Is it the fact that he's within the vicinity of the Cup?

Just kiddin'....anyways, it's a pretty terrible mural. He looks really screwed up. I'd fire whoever painted that.

Obviously the artist is some sort of mumbo jumbo psychic who knows he's gonna break his nose in three to twentyfive places before the play offs end.

Khabibulin needs to get a mural with his picture that says "Miss me yet?"

We've improved on Galileio's methods, basically turned Freud into fraud, but for the love of God, we can't even have someone paint a better picture than Michelangelo.

Well it's nice to see the city recognizing the Blackhawks but man, is that thing awful.

Not only the face but the cup also? jeez... Well we have Hossa too so maybe those two things will negate each other and while be guranted the cup!

This is horrible, not only because of the obvious "jinx" properties that come along with it but because of the horrendous quality of the work. There are so many spot-on murals around the city present and past....how is this one so glaringly bad? That's embarrassing. Oy.
