It’s not just a number. What does your Chicago Blackhawks jersey say about you?
Toews #19: “This is my first game, and the tag is still on my jersey. Go Toes!”
Kane #88: “Lincoln Park is my Shangri-La. After the game I’ll be at Stanley’s, pounding Bud Light Platinum.”
Amonte #10: “My mullet speaks to the years of suffering I spent waiting for this team to get good again.”
Probert #24: “Not only do I enjoy meth, but I will kill you as soon as look at you.”
Hull #9: “I am over 50, but I enjoy not being sober as much as the kids wearing #88. See ya at River Shannon after the game.”
Keith #2: “I keep my NHL dreams alive by playing beer league hockey at Johnny’s Ice House on Tuesday nights at 10:50 p.m.”
Sharp #10: “I am a lady.”
Hossa #81: “I bought my fiancee a Patrick Sharp jersey for her birthday last year.”
Chelios #7: “I remember when you could smoke in the concourse at the old stadium. My jersey is stained with tears and chili.”
Seabrook #7: “Hockey isn’t all about scoring goals. It’s about strong defense, crisp passes out of the defensive zone, and a good golf game in the off-season.”

Hjalmarsson #4: “I excel at spelling, enjoy different cultures and shop at Ikea.”

Oduya #27: “I’m into white chicks.”
Belfour #30: “ I understand all that is good and true in life.”
Eager #55: “I blew 300 bucks on this thing. Stupid Free Agency.”
Byfuglien #33/#52: I once ate thirteen Juicy Beefs from Johnnie’s in Elmwood Park. In one sitting! Had an Italian ice to top it off, too!
And…what does your Bruins jersey say about you?
Chara #33: “I got my ass kicked by a guy wearing a Carcillo jersey after watching Boston lose Game 1 to the Hawks.”
