No list of celebrity Blues fans would be complete without Jon Hamm on it. The guy is basically the poster child of Blues fandom right now.
Hamm is no Johnny Come Lately either. Hamm has been involved with the Blues for years.
I mean, just look at the shape of his hat. That thing has been through the battles.
Hamm did video work for the team for their 50th anniversary. If I’m not mistaken, he was involved in a brief video production even before that, but that’s going off personal memory, so don’t take that to the bank.
Hamm admitted that the busier he was with Mad Men, the fewer games he usually saw. That became especially true when the league changed the schedule format and the Blues and L.A. Kings only played three times a year.
But, for the Stanley Cup, Hamm made the trip just to come back home and experience it all. When the Blues won the Western Conference, Hamm summed up being a Blues fan about as well as you can.
Hamm got his own press conference time with national media during the Stanley Cup Final. Maybe that’s standard these days, but I don’t remember seeing it that often with other celebrity fans.
Hamm will be forgiven for almost costing the Blues the Cup by having to shave his beard for a role. As far as famous people go, the Blues Cup run will be synonymous with a ratty, old Blues hat and some interesting scarves.
