This is a regular series which attempts to combine my lifelong obsession with bubblegum cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities. I am in Detroit to see my beloved Blackhawks play their rival Detroit Red Wings.
As much as I would like to dump on the Red Wings, their success is undeniable. Still, from a Chicagoan's point of view, they are not very likable. In an effort to present as good of an image for the Red Wings as possible, I am featuring Anna Kournikova. Granted, Anna is a bit young in this photo, but she grew up to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time. Kournikova is wearing the #91 of fellow Russian Sergei Fedorov. Hopefully the Red Wings will play more like Kournikova and less like Federov!
Jim McMahon remains a Chicago sports hero. Nobody ever questioned his guts, courage or leadership. I am hoping the Hawks continue playing like McMahon and finish the season as champs, just like McMahon and the Bears did. I will give extra Johngy Points to anyone who can identify the female reporter in this Celebrity Jersey Card.
