An Open Letter to the Chicago Blackhawks and the Wakey Wakey shirts

Dear Hawks, Usually, I like you. Despite growing up loving Detroit (thanks to my brother), I always thought there was something about you that was a bit charming.

Duncan Keith taunts David Backes after Seabrook’s hit ☆

Brent Seabrook’s hit on David Backes was probably enough to make your blood boil if you support the St. Louis Blues. If it wasn’t, the Blackhawks taunting Backes after the dirty hit probably did the trick. Jonathan Toews is clearly seen yelling at Backes. The two have plenty of history (see: Toews barfing in the penalty box after Backes pummeled him), so it’s not exactly surprising...

Watch: Blackhawks Joel Quenneville Grabs His Crotch to Voice Displeasure Over Botched No-Call

Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville is never at a loss for words. And during last night's game against the St. Louis Blues, in double overtime, he voiced his opinion and put on a nut-grabbing display after a potential delay of game penalty went uncalled.
