Hello readers. Today walking to the Gage building, I saw a Detriot Red Wings hat and I was not happy. There are plenty of reasons why this is NOT ok to wear in Chicago and I will tell you why.
Reason #1: The Blackhawks
- This team, I call them the "Deadwings" are arch rivals of my hawks. Don't you dare show your face in that hat, jersey, or any other clothing items with their logo. Save yourself the embarrassment and dirty stares.
Reason #2: Most of their players are old.
- Yes, the argument can be made that older players make for a better team because of their experience level, but younger players bring speed to a team and youth. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with getting old, but not in hockey. There are exceptions when it comes to older players being faster than twenty something year old players if they happen to be in better physical shape.
Reason #3: This is CHICAGO people. Don't tell me it is ok, unless you are visiting our beautiful city and don't TAINT Chi-Town with a hat no one wants to see. Thanks.
- Ok, this one is common sense, but oftentimes common sense isn't used. People just think: I'm going to represent my city or favorite sports team when I travel. Eh, sorry, not in Chicago you're not. Go do that elsewhere please.
