Go Hawks!

Staff-News-Blackhawks-Lion2

The first game of the Stanley Cup Final is tonight and the lions are ready!

As always, when a Chicago sports team makes it to the championship game/series, our mighty lions are adorned with helmets or jerseys in support of our hometown team. This morning, the lions were outfitted with Blackhawks helmets and as you can imagine, it's quite a process. Scroll below to see images of our south lion getting dressed for the big series. Go Hawks!
