Oh, and superstition or not, I think it's retarded to put an award that they haven't won in a mural with a player.


Agreed. It might even be a different story if it looked as if he was looking toward it, or striving for it. With his back to it it looks as if they already won it.

I concur. The whole thing is a puzzle for me. The mural looks terrible. If I was Toews, I would not be happy.. and then to add the Cup to it? What were they thinking?

Man that is the ugliest mural I've ever seen!! Poor man-bear-pig! His legacy is now tarnished by being associated with the Hawks!


...btw, was the artist from Detroit by any chance trying to squeeze as much bad mojo as possible for Chicago? Hahahaha!

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.


but toews hoisted the cup in the opening credits of NHL 10...he has to win it now, cause EA Sports thinks the Hawks won it already. but i guess to go with what you were saying, the video is in colour, so it can't be true. was there tv's last time the hawks won the cup?

Granted they have like a 90% chance of winning the division, but this is some serious bad juju, especially when combined with the pig mural.

Edit: Does any other team sell division championship stuff?

Ok folks. Had a chance to drive by there today and check it out. At first I was concerned I missed it, maybe its hard to see, but kept driving on just in case. Sure enough... there it was in all of its splendor. Impossible to miss. I literally nearly caused a violent pile-up because I was laughing so hard that I couldn't see. I regained control of my car and start at the painting in awe.

The mural towers impressively at least eight stories high, Jonathon's nose taking up nearly half of those floors. Folks... pictures do not do this thing justice. It has to be seen in person. Like the grand canyon or the Eiffel tower, this monument is a true spectacle to behold.


Now I'm excited, can't wait to see it.

Did anyone else read the blog that follows? Classy.

The Hawks are still six points away from clinching the division with Nashville and Scum closing quick.

I love the reactions of the posters.

On the plus side, I hope the Wings or Nashville can steal the division title now. That'd be a cool collector's item to have if they miss out, haha.

This might still be an accurate prediction. Pignose is looking away from the Cup and doesn't look too happy. Maybe he's looking at Hossa after Hawks have lost the finals to Trashers (another ex-team of his).

What I don't understand is someone had to approve this picture. Did they look at it and think, "You know, he DOES kind of look a little like a pig. APPROVED!" Maybe the Hawks should trade for Tyler Kennedy. At least then they'll at least have SOMEONE that looks like a pig.
