I don't get it. OK, I do. It's about money and selling new jerseys, but I sure wish the Hawks were going to be wearing their red jerseys on New Year's Day at Wrigley Field and not those throwback black sweaters they unveiled Saturday night.
Didn't The Hockey News just name the Hawks' jersey the best in the NHL? Don't some consider it the best jersey in all of pro sports?
It would look terrific to have the Hawks in those great red jerseys at Wrigley Field when the entire hockey world watches them play the Red Wings.
Maybe it's just me who cares that much, but do the Yankees ever wear anything but their pinstripes at home?
P.S. Those third jerseys the Hawks wore a few years ago, the black ones with the traditional look, are back as well. They plan to wear them a minimum of 11 times this season.
