Playoff Avatars
 
Anyone have any ideas? I love the Moriarty idea, but no one outside of this board would get it. What about twitter inspired ones? I'll gladly contribute.

Would be nice if it played off the "fluke run" label that so many bitter folks have applied our team due to last year's SC win. Maybe this year's "fluke run" will be 16 wins and 3 losses? :laugh:

Have play-off "Beards" already been done?:badidea:
I'm planning on showing off mine in a Gif or something as we progress:thumbu:

It doesn't have the same effect when it's made in MSPaint.

Docgonzo 04-08-2013 06:02 PM

favorite tweets from the Kings twitter and adding the twitter bird with a crown and the cup on its back. Have been able to fill the rest in yet.

OK smart guy ... lets see your effort :p: and I don't mean your usual MO of just being critical of others, we know you're good at that. ;)

BigBrown 04-08-2013 07:11 PM

I wouldn't mind utilizing pictures of our players at their beardiest, like from the finals. Those were glorious.

I made the avatar set a few years ago, but let's conveniently ignore that now because we don't want to acknowledge that I was right about your MS Paint skills.

Shootmaster_44 04-08-2013 07:53 PM

I just think all of us should carry this, with a simple Kings of the Mountain on it:

http://hockeygods.com/system/gallery...jpg?1344841416

Either that or a map of LA with the phrase the Road to the Cup goes through LA.

KingsKnight 04-08-2013 07:58 PM

Good ideas, but it would be nice to do something that's unique to this year. I think Fluke II and Moriarty are the only ones that fit that bill of the ones listed so far.

This might work. I like it. We could hashtag all the misconceptions about the team or each player or even run with a #fluke, #sequel or #asterisk theme.

My thoughts also.

I like something playing off the "fluke" theme, but maybe instead of "fluke", the theme is:

"MEH"

Animated GIF, first animation has some sort of image and some ridiculous stat like "10 Straight Road Victories" or "Defeated 1,2,3 Western Seeds" etc...

Then it goes to an image of a King holding the cup, probably Brown when he first hoisted it with, in large font "MEH". Also good here would be the Brown picture after the Roszival hit when he has his tongue sticking out laughing. If you chose a player instead of a specific stat, the picture would be said player holding the Cup.

Then last picture is whatever you want it to be while referencing 2013 Playoffs. Maybe that's the first one? I don't make GIFs so pardon the ignorance.

Possibility to get creative with the "stat" portion of it...could be cheeky like "Great Conversationalist" and have a shot of Brown/Doan in the handshake line etc..."Only in Blowouts" with Carter celebrating a SCF goal..."Fleeced" or "Bad CORSI" and have a pic of Richards..."Overrated" with Doughty..."Too Many Blondes" with Stoll etc...

I don't want to use the word fluke in the event they crash and burn in the 1st round. I'd prefer to either highlight one of the amazing stats they accomplished on the run or one of the negatives that is said about the run, team and/or specific players straight into a shot of the Cup being hoisted with "meh" just jumping out.

You're entitled to your opinion, WRONG as it may be, because you seem to the be the only one that has a problem with my MSPaint skillz, everyone else seemed to want to rock them last year, and we won the cup with them, so :p:

As a Canadian, I like this. We could each pick a different part of Canada to say 'You're Welcome' to.

If we are playing Vancouver in the first round I call dibs on 'To the city of Vancouver, you're welcome...again' :laugh:
