Should be Handzus' though, not Handzus's. If you're going to use the umlaut, may as well get it all right

Actually thought about that haha. Tried to think back to 10th grade English and was still on the fence. Guess I stand corrected

Edit: upon further review, both are acceptable

Yeah I looked that up when I made it, because I initially thought it should be Handzus', but apparently writing it that way is the exception the rule. What say the boards? Handzus' or Handzus's? I don't mind changing it.

I've sent DapperDan a new version without the last "s". I think it looks cleaner, so it's up to him.

I like how we're discussing this on the eve of the playoffs.

I'll take one if that is alright.

I'll try and do an homage to The Empire Strikes back, so something like "The chance of the kings successfully winning the cup" and then "3,720 to 1."

Obviously the first part may have to be shortened. "Chances of Kings Success: 3,720:1" or something like that. You get the idea.

Awesome idea for the Star Wars theme btw.

As a rookie here, I don't think I'm worthy of one of these, but I just had to say how awesome these are.

Also, might I suggest that someone use "Quick summons his Jedi mind control" odds?

LOL at the odds, did you pick that or did KingsKnight use creative license?

Lets add some more:
The diacritical mark above the s is not an Umlaut (wich would be , , and such) but the hček.



Going to Berlin 1:1... Ow yeah!!

I think a " Win 4 for Tanner" avatar might be cool for someone needing an avatar
