here is Sharp being interviewed after a game last week; personally I prefer this look to the bizarre photoshops the Hawks did with him for the contest; I would like to erase some of those images from my brain, please.
anyway, I have another point about all this...I went to the newly relocated VS flagship store on the Magnificent Mile last week. upstairs was the Pink boutique; Pink is their casual line marketed to college students. first I noticed panties that said "I [heart] PARTIES" but I misread them as "I [heart] PANTIES" which would have been funny. then I noticed a wall of t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. of various sports teams. kind of silly and glittery but at least they were in actual team colors. there was stuff for the Bears, White Sox, Cubs, Bulls, and...Illini. NO BLACKHAWKS! and they had a Hawk in their contest to promote this store? I wanted to sneak a photo of the display (I like taking photos in stores) but realized there was no non-creepy way to take photos in a lingerie store.
oh, and substantially less cool but I'll admit it: I've looked in the one Wal-Mart in Chicago several times and though there's some Blackhawks clothing for men, I haven't found any for women (I've seen shirts for the other big 4 Chicago teams, plus Illini, Notre Dame, Cardinals & Braves [!!!]). for now women need to buy their Hawks gear at the United Center or Blackhawks store, though I was told Bloomingdale's had some...
um, no more lingerie-related posts, I hope. and uh, pardon me for the gratuitous link in my "chippy" post yesterday that may have turned up a photo involving some blogger and lingerie and an abandoned building, and pardon me for gratuitously mentioning it, too.
