After the initial WTF moment, I knew I needed to share this strange find with the world. Obviously, someone felt like there was a market for something like this. Though, judging by the amount of pillows I saw in the store, maybe even Red Wings fans think this idea is a little ridiculous.

This year I spent Christmas with family in the southwestern Michigan/Chicago area. It was definitely ripe with merchandise for both the Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings. I found myself gravitating towards the Blackhawks gear (I can't lie, it was pretty nice, but I promise I didn't buy anything!). The Red Wings stuff...well, as usual, I could barely look at it. However, while strolling through a store looking for after-Christmas sales, I ran across something I couldn't quite believe. There, in a giant bin, was a rather large pile of Red Wing-clad purple octopus pillows.
