Columbus Blue JacketsThis panorama of the Columbus Blue Jackets playing at their hometown arena in Columbus, Ohio, was taken by James Blakeway. It all began in June 1997, when the National Hockey League awarded the city of Columbus an expansion franchise that would later be named the Blue Jackets. Just over three years later on October 17, 2000, the club played its inaugural game before a sellout crowd of 18,136 fans. In 2008-09, the Blue Jackets finished their season with the most wins (41) and points (92) in franchise history. The name "Blue Jackets" was chosen to celebrate the patriotism, pride and rich Civil War history of the state of Ohio and the city of Columbus.
A must for any true Columbus sports fan! Printed in brilliant color and perfect focus on high-quality print stock, and complete with a sharp white border that includes the official team logo, the commemorative title, and a brief descriptive paragraph, this Nationwide Arena game night panorama is both a beauty for the wall, and a great collector's item for years to come. Perfect for the wall of home, office, locker room or classroom!
