‘Stylish’ Rahm Emanuel Behind The Glass At Blackhawks-Wild Game
By John Dodge
CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is taking a bit of a beating on social media for his casual wardrobe at Sunday’s Blackhawks game at the United Center.
The mayor was sporting a retro early ’90s look with a bleached, unbuttoned denim shirt, accessorized with a faded grey Blackhawks T-shirt.
The look didn’t go over too well with some fans, while others found it amusing.
“Hey Mayor Rahm Emanuel, just saw you in the crowd at the Hawks-Wild game, 1989 called, it wants its shirt back,” mused one tweet.

Others saw the potential for a new social trend.
Whatever you think of his style — sartorial or political — Rahm was INTO the game on Sunday. Just check out that photo above, taken by Marty Murphy, who was sitting a few rows back.
He got into a little glass-banging following a hooking penalty by the Wild’s Jonas Brodin against Peter Regin, who was skating toward a clear scoring opportunity.
The ensuing power play led to the Hawks’ first goal when Patrick Kane fired a shot that was redirected into the net by Bryan Bickell.
Afterward, Jonathan Toews described his game-winning goal in the third-period as “ugly.”
Reporters didn’t ask the Captain if he felt the same way about Rahm’s shirt, so Twitter took care of that.
