Boston Strong, Chicago Stronger. That is the message that Chicago area based Cubby Tees wanted to convey when they attempted to see a new shirt.
The new shirt the company planned to sell read, “Chicago Stronger”
Fans in Boston rallied behind the idea of “Boston Strong” following the events of the 2013 Boston bombings.
The shirt has since been pulled due to heavy backlash on social media sights. Many people took to Facebook and Twitter to condemn the company for being crude in the wake of the Boston Marathon.
This was posted on the Cubby Tees website: (Any typos, and there are many, are from the Cubby Tees site)
We wish that more had read the description for the “Chicago Stronger” shirt (or that we had more fully expessed it), but that might have let facts/intent get in the way of a good new-fashoned Twitter-lynching and the intertube’s click-generating outrage machine that brought you here. [Congratulations, you just provided $.10 in revenue for someone else profiting from the ...

Andrew Shaw netted the game-winning goal for the Blackhawks in triple overtime in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, so he was understandably very excited during his postgame interview with NBC’s Pierre McGuire immediately following the big goal.

“It was a great shot, great tip…f**kin’ unbelievable...
Andrew Shaw celebrates his triple OT game-winner.
It ended as the fifth-longest game in Stanley Cup Final history, and thanks to Andrew Shaw, it ended in victory for the Chicago Blackhawks. Shaw’s deflection of a pinballing puck that started out as a Michael Handzus shot from the point gave Chicago the win at 12:08 of the third overtime period, and a 1-0 series lead for the Cup...

via the Situation Room Blog at NHL.com,
At 12:32 of the first period in the Blackhawks/Bruins game, video review was initiated by the NHL Situation Room because the puck entered the Boston net. The referee had blown the play dead prior to Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa pushing the goaltender's pads and the puck across the goal line. No goal Chicago.
The NHL definitely picked the right player to toss a microphone on during the Blackhawks triple overtime Game 1 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night. Andrew Shaw who scored the game winner in the third overtime was mic’d up at the time, and the NHL has kindly provided the video. Just awesome.

The Blackhawks wasted little time putting the pressure on the Bruins in Game 2, but the B’s are hanging around.
Boston is probably lucky to only be trailing by one goal after a frantic first period, in which Tuukka Rask made more saves than Corey Crawford might have to all game. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is a little worried about the B’s, but he knows this could have gotten...
