Found June 18, 2013 on Bacon Sports:
After last’s weeks Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Game 1 ticket contest that we ran went so well (that’s right, we gave away two tickets to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final) we wanted to keep the party going. Thanks to our good friends over at Wrigleyville Sports we are giving away three of these sweet Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Final hats. These hats are mesh flex fit from Reebok and feature the official 2013 Stanley Cup Final logo on the side. They are dope like seeing a DeLorean on the street or flipping the channel and Bloodsport is on. We are going to throw a photo contest and the top three entries will win one of these bad boys. Here’s what we need from you/the details of the contest: Send in a funny, random, creative, and/or unique picture involving BACON to That’s right, bacon must be in the picture somewhere (and no, we aren’t looking for you to go and find bacon pictures on Google. We want you to create it). Everything else is completely up to you. We run a sports comedy website that loves sports nostalgia, random jerseys, baseball cards, Top Gun, old school WWF wrestling, and playoff hockey (to name a few things) so if you send us something that has zero creativity in it you most certainly won’t win so save your entries where you are just holding a piece of bacon while wearing a Blackhawks shirt. That won’t fly. Bonus points will be awarded if you have something Chicago Blackhawks in the picture. If you don’t have anything Blackhawks in your picture you are still OK, it’ll just need to be a little better than someone who has something equally cool but has something Blackhawks in it. Just making that clear. Remember, we are giving away 3 hats so there will be 3 winners. Entries need to be received by Saturday, June 22 at 12 pm (central). That’s a few hours before Game 5 in Chicago. We’ll be declaring a winner of the competition the morning of Monday, June 24 on our site as well as on Facebook and Twitter. For those that aren’t good with directions, send your picture to Also, we will allow multiple entries (though each person can only win once). Lastly, have fun with this. We aren’t asking you to shovel mulch while listening to Steve Francis song “Finer Things” on repeat. You get to eat bacon, create something awesome, and maybe win a cool hat. By the way, don’t forget to JOIN THE BACON SPORTS EMAIL LIST to get notified of sweet contests that we run (like this one). That way you don’t miss out on some of the fun stuff we do and give away. Had you been on our email list you probably would have known about the Stanley Cup Final tickets we were giving away. This most certainly won’t be the last time that we give away tickets to something awesome. In case you missed it, JOIN THE BACON SPORTS EMAIL LIST!!!!! Also throw a bone to our friends over at Wrigleyville Sports while you are at it. If you dig Chicago sports and like looking flyer than Craig Sager then Wrigleyville Sports is the place to get your gear. They are right across from Wrigley Stadium Field (sorry Jeff Gordon) so you can’t miss them. Now get working on those photos and give us something hilarious or awesome!   OTHER ARTICLES YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE: Hockey’s Original Six is a lot like being a Hipster It’s starting to look a lot like Pittsburgh for the Blackhawks Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane star in the worst commercial ever.

Bruins-Blackhawks: TD Garden Wifi Access Point Called “Kane Is A Weenie” (PHOTO)

(PHOTO: The Nosebleeds) You have to love the TD Garden poking fun at the Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane. Chicago Tribune writer Chris Kruc tweeted out a screenshot of his iPhone prior to Game 3 in Boston last night. Looks like the TD Garden should continue this trend. May I suggest Hossa is a p*ssy for missing Game 3 due to a mystery upper body injury?

Jeff Gordon Toyota/Save Mart 350 Race Preview

SONOMA, Calif. – With new challenges facing the teams this weekend, five-time Sonoma Raceway winner Jeff Gordon will rely on the past ahead of Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup event. To prepare for the first of two road course events on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series calendar, Gordon and the No. 24 Drive To End Hunger team tested at Road Atlanta a few weeks ago. But that test may prove...

Tweet of the Week: Los Angeles Kings To Pittsburgh Penguins

The defending Stanley Cup champions Los Angeles Kings lost a heartbreaking game five of the Western Conference Finals to the Chicago Blackhawks. The game went into double overtime and when both teams needed a hero, Patrick Kane rose to the occasion. Kane finished the game with a hat trick, including the game-winner on a one-timer in double overtime. While the teams shook hands, and...

Blackhawks to reunite their top line from Detroit series in Bickell, Toews and Kane

From CBS Sports' Adam Gretz: With his team trying to avoid falling into a 3-1 hole in the Stanley Cup Final, Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville seems prepared to reunite Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on the same line for Game 4 on Wednesday night. The two have rarely played together at even-strength over the first three games of the series but were back on a...

Blackhawks’ Big Guns Team Up on Top Line, Provide Chicago With Spark in Game 4 Win

BOSTON — After going through the motions for the first three games of the series, the Blackhawks’ big guns were reunited on Wednesday night for Game 4 and the move paid off big time for the Hawks and head coach Joe Quenneville. Jonathan Toews centered Bryan Bickell and Patrick Kane to reunite a line that led the Blackhawks to a Game 5 win in the Western Conference finals over...

5 Former Basketball Stars Who Might Actually Be Dead

Sports fans are unforgiving and terrible bastards. We forget about players as soon as they retire or start sucking at whatever it is they’re supposed to be good at. But sometimes stars literally just disappear from the face of the earth. And when they’re gone, we don’t necessarily miss them, we  just wish we knew what the hell they were up to. Are they working on a comeback...

Lord Stanley Knotted At Two

Just a few things that caught my eye: Welcome to the postseason, Jonathan Toews -- you finally got off the schnide. You should have probably had two goals and you made the winner possible. Have the Bruins woken the bear? So, what was up with Zdeno Chara? He was frustrated one minute and falling the next. And he was a better door than window for Tuukka Rask on the...

Tough day for Hendrick drivers

Sunday was a rough day for Hendrick Motorsports. Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. had promising rides derailed by car problems, and Hendrick teammate Jeff Gordon's shot at winning at Michigan International Speedway ended less than 10 laps in because of a crash. Throw in a cut tire that left Kasey Kahne 38th, and none of the racing giant's four entries cracked the top...

Patrice Bergeron Continues to Impress With Dominant All-Around Effort in Bruins’ Game 3 Win

BOSTON — A day before Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, the NHL announced that Jonathan Toews was the recipient of the Selke Trophy as the league’s best defensive forward. After three games of the Cup Final, however, the voters that opted for Toews over Patrice Bergeron — a handful of them from Chicago, no doubt — might be rethinking that decision. The Bruins took a 2-1 series...

GARTH: Where's Captain Serious?

Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville is about to give the people what they want. He's resisted the temptations to play his two rock stars, captain Jonathon Toews and Patrick Kane, together in the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals. Tonight, Coach Q has no other option than to play his best two players together with the Hawks still smarting from the 2-0 shutout that the Bruins h...

It’s Starting to Look a Lot Like Pittsburgh

Watching the ineptness of the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final was eerily and scarily familiar to the flaccid performance by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals. No sustained offensive zone time, physically outworked, inability to get to the net, seasoned stars making uncharacteristic mistakes and a completely impotent power play – sound...

Lord Stanley Game Three

Just a few things that caught my eye: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool Joel Quennville four times? Shame on the organization. Zdeno Chara was in the dressing room with a skate issue for at least four shifts and Quennville failed to get Jonathan Toews on the ice for any of them. How does that happen with today's technology? Tuukka...

Game Three

Chicago's offence seems to have dried up.  They haven't scored a goal since the first period of game two.  This was the highest scoring team in the West Conference this season.  It appears that their best scorers are hurt or injured.  Marian Hossa missed game three as a late scratch.  Neither Jonathan Toews nor Patrick Kane have looked like the stars they usually look...
