|Stars Are Out #3- Blackhawks Legend Patrick Kane|
The two of these I premiered a few days ago went off well, so I might as well throw two more on the blog.
Patrick Kane's is a nice one, because the day I went to my Cubs game this year, the Blackhawks had won a Stanley Cup final game, and there was a bunch of cars of Blackhawks PR people (and Mascots) throwing out rally towels. So, there was a lot of Hawks love going around in Chicago when I was there. Obviously it was still there by the time Kane came to Wrigley with the Cup. Fun pose. I like the red-blue combo on this.
|Stars Are Out #4- Former White Sock Jose Contreras|
Meanwhile, on the other side of Chicago, we have our first former-MLBer on one of these. And yes, former MLB-ers are TOTALLY fair game in this set. Because it's always pretty cool when a team legend gets up there and throws out the first pitch. Even if it's somebody like Jose Contreras, who's known for a few different teams, but made the most impact as a member of that strong White Sox rotations of the mid-2000's. Apparently he's a pretty big deal on the South Side, because he was hyped enough to throw out the first pitch this year.
Also, while we're on the subject of ex-MLB-ers throwing out the first pitch...
|Stars Are Out #5- Former Dodgers Rookie Phenom Kasuhisa Ishii|
I'm gonna work on some more of these, but I have a John Harbaugh in the can.
