The last time the Blackhawks were in the Stanley Cup Final, in 2010, I went to Philadelphia, wore my Duncan Keith jersey and had my physical well-being threatened multiple times. So I decided to try it again, this time in Boston, for Saturday's Game 2. After all, Boston couldn't be worse than Philly, right? They seem like reasonable, level-headed people other than that time they started a war because they didn't want to pay too much for tea. Yeah, it was going to be bad. > > I spent the day taking in the sights in my Keith jersey.

Fans wear their jerseys with pride, whether it's at the game, at the bars or at the office. And even in a sea of them, the die-hards with personalized jerseys are easy to spot. Do you see these fans and think "what a waste of money" or "how cool would my name look on the back?" RedEye tackles these questions in this round of Go Nuts!

Episode 6 of "Jersey Shore Season 5" featured the essential combination to a good episode in an otherwise catastrophic season: less Situation, more Meatballs and JWoww emoting with her plastic surgery face. The episode begins with Situation on the phone with his boy Unit, who unfortunately is in Miami with Mark (omg is Unit CHEATING on the Situation?), so the abberific duo cannot bust the lid on Snooki to G-Yanni. The phone call quickly turns to a conversation about two characters we have not met: Deena's sister and Situation's brother, who...

As part of the NBA's Hardwood Classics Night series, the Bulls will wear the pinstripe alternate road uniform made famous during the record-breaking 72-win season in which they went on to win their fourth title in six seasons. The Bulls will wear the classic uni Feb. 21 vs. the Miami Heat at the United Center, March 2 at Indiana and March 10 at the L.A. Lakers. Want more?

The life of a Hawks jersey is a hazardous one. Spilled beer. Hot wing stains. Grill smoke. Smeared mascara. (Well, hopefully not the last one.) Like any weather-worn piece of sports paraphernalia, a Blackhawks sweater can see its fair share of disaster. But one diehard hockey fan just wants to see bright white and red Hawks gear as the team waits Monday one win away from winning the Stanley Cup. “I'm just a ridiculous fan, that's how it is,” said David Gibson, owner of Gibson's Couture Cleaners in Irving Park.
