When it comes to rooting for the Chicago Blackhawks, some area fans wear their passions on their heads (hats) and others literally wear it on their sleeves (jerseys).
But for an Oak Park real estate firm, the zeal to urge on the Stanley Cup finalist recently showed up on their windows.
On Thursday, Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Gloor Realty, 114 N. Oak Park Ave., began displaying on its office front space a variety of images of Chicago hockey players in action. The display also has repeated exhortations of “Go Hawks!”

Eric Brightfield, an Oak Park resident and owner of ImageFiction, performed the work for BHG/Gloor Realty, which has been an Inside Edge PR client since 2008.
“We’ll keep it up throughout the week, after the Blackhawks win the championship,” said Rich Gloor, BHG/Gloor Realty president.
Gloor’s confidence is shared by numerous citizens of Blackhawk Nation, as the club heads into Game 4 on Friday night holding a 2-1 series edge over the Philadelphia Flyers.
The last time the club won the Stanley Cup was 1961, or 15 years after BHG/Gloor Realty was founded.
