It's no wonder that Chicago has such great sports fans -- we have such storied and historic (if not always successful) franchises. The Bears were established by NFL founder Papa Bear Halas, and our hockey team is one of the legendary Original Six -- the Mighty Chicago Blackhawks! The Blackhawks had some dry years under the dubious direction of Dollar Bill Wirtz, but were recently set on the right track and have already notched a Stanley Cup victory...with more to follow. The excitement of the game, the core of great young players (Kane, Toews, Sharp, Seabrook, Hossa, Crawford), the history of the team, the iconic nature of the Blackhawk Native American head logo and the sweet color of our sweaters all contribute to the loyal following of Blackhawk Nation. We salute this spirit and this fandom with our line of unofficial original designs created by fans for fans. These are NOT offered by the team or the NHL and are not sanctioned by them in any way -- this limits the boundaries of imagery we can use, but allows us to more freely express opinions, angst and passion. We hope that you enjoy the shirts, will share the links and will suggest any fun ideas that you have.
