Biggest Blackhawks Fan: Paul Bunyan statue gets a giant hockey stick

By Marcus Leshock | WGN Morning News

BUNYAN STATUEIt’s that time in a playoff run when my inbox starts filling up with all kinds of interesting things. A few days ago, it was a series of photos from lifelong Blackhawks fan Jack Dwyer. To support his favorite team, Jack and his uncle Scott built an enormous hockey stick…for a Paul Bunyan statue.

The Giant Statue sits on top of Guardian Auto Rebuilders in Evergreen Park. He used to hold a hatchet, but I’m told local kids used to steal it as part of yearly school pranks. So poor Paul’s hands have been sitting empty for years.

When Jack approached the company about his stick idea, they were all about it. We talked to the guys about how they built it, got it up there, and what they plan to do with it after the Hawks win the Stanley Cup in a few weeks.

We’ll post the video here after it airs. For now, here’s more information….

Jack is one of the founders of a local comedy group FuzzKill Comedy. You can watch some of their stuff on their YouTube channel HERE.

And here’s the full YouTube video showing how they put this giant stick together…
