Chicago Blackhawks ad in Boston Globe salutes city’s ‘gracious spirit’

We’ve reported on the Chicago Tribune sending the Boston Globe pizzas after the Boston Marathon bombings and taking back part of its tribute to the city’s sports teams during the Stanley Cup finals. So it seems appropriate to note the ad that the Chicago Blackhawks, who won the Cup, placed on page A9 of Friday’s Globe.

Called “An open letter to the Boston Bruins organization & the city of Boston,” the ad says “we were deeply touched by what happened off the ice.”

“Like the rest of the world, Chicagoans have been reminded in recent days of Boston’s strength. Please know we tip our hat to your city’s big heart and gracious spirit. You lead by example and have set the bar very high for others to follow.”
