St. Pat's Celebration at Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub

Bill Bradshaw's Chicago Temple headquarters

Mother Hubbards Sports Pub at Hubbard and State St. is run by friends of Athletic Director, Bill Bradshaw and Alumni Bill Cosby.
Bill B. sent us a Temple Banner last year and it hangs proudly at Mother Hubbards. We had quite a few Alum last year. We thought we would let the Alumni Club know that they have an Oasis in the heart of River North. We saw that Harry Caray's is touting Cornell as the winner of our game. They are only a block away from us. The Heck with them.

So we thought that any Temple Alum that live or work downtown should know that there is a well known place that is solidly in the OWL camp.

Cardinal George Makes Surprise Trip To Chicago

"The After-Party is at Mother Hubbard's.
I hear the wings are heavenly!"

Could Hockey Become a Summertime Sport In Chicago?

Among the usual summertime delights that Chicagoans relish for all to short a time, weekends at the lakefront, outdoor patios for late night cocktails, and an occasional Cubs game, the Stanley Cup Playoffs might stand out as something that just doesn't belong. Don't tell that to our mighty, might Blackhawks.

Hockey hasn't been this hot in Chicago for quite a while and whether the credit goes to our top notch on-ice lineup, a great coaching staff or that friendly gentleman sitting on the folding chair near the corner of the 100 section, there's no debating the games are exciting to watch, in-person or on TV.

Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub is an official Blackwawk's bar and shows every game, home or away. And, yes we will start the broadcast early enough for you to enjoy the "rocket's red glare, and bombs bursting in air"!

Join us for the excitement of a city focused on ONE GOAL!

Western Michigan University Hockey team visited Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub Friday Night. The WMU Broncos were in town hosted by Robert Morris. The young men were well behaved and kept their shirts on.

The coaching staff arrived a half an hour later not knowing the team was there.The players told coaches they were going back to the hotel, but may have left out the details regarding the detour to Mother Hubbard's. Who could blame them after they all heard about our wings. The Stallions are a great group of guys and enjoyed the Mother Hubbard's experience.

Golden Globe and Oscar Winner Philip Seymour Hoffman Cheers Jets At Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub

January 19, 2010
River North, Chicago, Illinois

Chicago Sun-Times Columnist, Bill Zwecker writes:

Meanwhile, back in Chicago, Philip Seymour Hoffman had a different set of priorities Sunday night. The actor, who won a Golden Globe (and an Oscar) for ‘‘Capote’’ in 2006 — and now in town prepping for his directorial debut at the Goodman with ‘‘The Long Red Road’’ — was spied intently watching his beloved New York Jets in the NFL playoffs at the Mother Hubbard’s sports bar on Hubbard Street.

Given that the Jets beat the Chargers just prior to the start of the Globes, chances are Hoffman may have been able to watch both.
