Oh no!

So what are your superstitions?

Right now I have one that involves not updating the Jimmy Howard Watch Thread or else he won't have a strong following game. Alas I updated earlier and am hoping against all odds that superstitious tics don't actually influence real life.

Seems like one Chicago fan took it seriously.

What a load of crap. The team is young, extremely talented, and is hell of a Cup contender. What else is the mural supposed to depict? Huet letting in a soft 5-hole?
imo, Chicago-ians are already setting up for defeat. This way, if the Hawks do win the cup, it'll be "meh we won". If they don't, however, they'll have the ever so strong "I told you so"
News flash: you should be more concerned about Hoots+Niemi than an ominous depiction of the Stanley Cup behind a ridiculous drawing of Elmer Fu -- err, Toews.

The Blackhawks are done? What, did the team announce Campbell would be back early from injury?
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Cup they haven't earned? Check.
Pig nose? Check.

Enjoy your mural.

I guess 'jinxing' yourself is the way to go anyways. The Pens touched the Wales trophy last year and obviously got some luck from it.

Stupid that they would paint a mural of their captain looking like a pig.

Even stupider that they would put him in a mural with the Cup, which he hasn't won.

I suppose they wanted to get across the idea that the team could win a Cup. In Detroit, we just would have put up pics from previous Cup celebrations, but I suppose in Chicago there aren't too many cave paintings left of their last win.

I like to partake in superstitions, but never fully believed in them. With the Wales trophy, it seems that only when the Penguins captain touches it do they win the Cup, so it's interesting how different things affect superstitions.

For me though, it's currently in the form of my Wings hat. 7-0-1 since I started wearing it and a few other lucky events (like a class outside, great weather, apparent additional luck, etc.) Two years ago, we went on 9-game win streaks when I wore it too, but last year it would make us lose so I kept it on the shelf.

campbell, to me, will always be an honourary red wing for his tireless efforts in "assisting" us in key situations.
