I don't really like the brown bag over the weagle, just feels wrong to act shamed like that (even if a joke) as I take intense pride in sticking with all my crappy Washington DC teams despite how extraordinarily crappy they are... But I'll go along with the party I guess, I'd prefer if I could get one with the bag taken out though.

I can't even pick which joke I'd like. Alzner's probably my favorite player, but something in me wants to see a Jeff Schultz "Because : ( says it all" or something similar. Whatever, you guys are the funny ones, I just want an advitar that hasn't been taken yet.

EDIT: I didn't want that to turn into an emoticon.

I love the idea of Vokoun: Because you get what you pay for.

I'd rock that forever.


Because Brad Watson still has a job.


Because goals are delicious.


Because our goalie hits back.


Because Boston loves a 7 seed.

+1 Jedgi, we may have no cups in our name, but I am no brown bag fan.

I like the clear bag version

and no, not for if we lose.

The people who all of a sudden can't take a joke about our team remind me of this:

IT's not that I don't get the joke or can't take it (Evidenced by me using the advitar), it just makes me kind of uncomfortable.

It's not that we're embarassed to be Caps fans...otherwise we wouldn't be using the avatars at all. It's that everyone thinks we should be. So run with it until the team sheds the choker label. Embrace being the underdog.

Yeah I get that and obviously none of us are embarrassed to be Caps fans. I just don't really like it that's all. It's not a huge issue, just sharing my thoughts.

These avatars are awesome. We are the underdog and people say we shouldn't win, why not embrace it and just go with it. As a fan, I'm just happy they are playing hockey right now.

The font is Agency FB Bold Condensed.



Here is the Wideman one without the bag, obviously I like the bag as the part of the joke so I would rather not go back and remake them all without a bag. If you want to request a new one without the bag please say so. Time permitting I will get to more tomorrow if necessary.

Great idea, and excellent execution, y'all. It was interesting to read this thread to see how you all came to the decision.

I don't post frequently, so I'm not sure I really need one, but would whoever came up with the "Because First Place Is Overrated" one mind if I shared it? (I seriously hardly ever post, as you can see by my 30-something post count in the year I've been a member here. )

For Laich maybe: "Because we make no guaranties only predictions..."

Also, haven't seen much for Brouwer.

Just testing one out. I've got a few snarky ideas but just testing out actually putting them together in GIMP.

I'm using 4000 ms as the delay... is that what everyone else is using (seems like a 3-4s delay for the ones posted but I don't have an exact timer or anything, and it'd be nice to be consistent).

Also, what font size... 12 pt looks about right but just to be sure?

Don't bother explaining yourself to him. He understands.

I always thought the dreaded paper bag was reserved for the worst team in the league. When anyone sees a single paper bag at Verizon, let us all know.
