Cubs players wear Blackhawks jerseys after game in support of team
The Blackhawks have advanced to the second round of this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs and are facing the Minnesota Wild in a best of seven series. Having already won game one, the Blackhawks looked to take a 2-0 series lead Sunday night. One of Chicago’s other sports teams showed their support earlier in the day.
After their game against the Brewers, several Cubs players donned Blackhawks jerseys. Joe Maddon met with the media wearing one, as did Jason Hammel. David Ross and Addison Russell posed for a picture by the team bus.
In the above photo, we see Dexter Fowler, Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro, Pedro Strop, and a bunch of snacks, on the plane headed to St. Louis for a four-game series with the Cardinals that begins Monday.
Joe Maddon has become well known for themed road trips and we’ve highlighted a few in the past. This one happens to serve another purpose, a show of pride for the city of Chicago.
