The bitter winter of Chicago makes it hard for people start each day with any excitement.

Fortunately for basketball fans, the Chicago Bulls are doing their best to lift spirits on and off the court. Wednesday, the Bulls used the single-digit temperatures to their advantage, asking fans to send in their best "temperature jerseys" via Snapchat. 


The current temperature is one of the filters on Snapchat, and as you can see, some fans are rather expertly drawing around the numeral to create their own Bulls jersey. It's not a bad way to foster some sense of togetherness as the Windy City gets crushed with terrible weather. Of course, the most exciting part about the Bulls remains what they do inside the comforts of NBA arenas, where the team has raced out to a 25-10 record behind an improved Jimmy Butler, a returned Derrick Rose and free-agent signee Pau Gasol.

However, we still can't tell if Tom Thibodeau's face is red from the arctic temperatures or all the yelling.
