Randy, your current AV made me laugh.

Up 1-0 in 1st period?
Poorly installed 1-2-2?
Its a trap!

Score 3 goals in 10 minutes?
No shots for the next 20?
Its a trap!

Then lets do it like this

Thanks on the 'tar comments.

I don't know if out of country posters know but Ted's second hobby the Washington Wizards basketball team used to be called the Washington Bullets. Hence the free Bullets.... reference. Seems to tie nicely to the National Rifle Association trap for Timmy.

Thanks, Ty

Its a trap theme could be flexible enough to allow many different angles.... instead of everyone's advatar looking the same, and many actually the same, favor more creativity, catered to our opponent or their fans, or even Dale. A carrot peeler frame, a frame of a Pinocchio Lucic, and the 3rd frame of the gif.... its a trap. If we faced the Rags, a kid squirting milk from a squirt gun, a frame of torts, its a trap. Boston Tea party on the Titanic. Too good to be true trade proposals for Babe Ruth.

I dunno, i am not too pressed that it be a trap theme but it seems easy and appropriate. Know that I prefer creativity and ease over the theme itself.

If it's not going to be Dennis Maruk's moustache, which I think would be really great, then I do like the idea of something presidential.

I think it's weird that Tim Thomas didn't go to the White House. I think I would've gone with my team, almost no matter who was President. Probably not if it was, say, Hitler. I bet Tim Thomas thinks of Obama like Hitler, like some of these other crazies and wingnuts I hear from time to time down here in these parts. I bet he is just dumb.

Our President in a Caps uniform, perhaps firing a shot at Tim Thomas, would be great, I think. But I think someone here is better at Photoshop and that kind of thing than I am.

Sorry I just realized this might be taken the wrong way. I'm not here to say I'm pro or anti anything politically speaking. I'm just saying, when you get invited to the White House, even if I'm a famous hockey player, that seems like a pretty special deal, especially if I'm an American-born player, plus even if I don't really think there's anything special about getting invited to what is one of the most important places in the world, I'd still want to go because, y'know, it's just going to be weird later if I don't do that thing with my team and I'm going to start a whole media deal and they're going to ask my teammates about it and so on and so forth. So, I'm thinking I'd have to be really pretty angry at the President to skip that deal. That's all. Seriously. I didn't want to start anything. I just like the idea of a President/Tim Thomas avatar.

The avatars should be for the whole playoffs if we make it that far. Not just the Bruins

But if you want to switch it up based on each team we can face, I am down with that

My preference now is a broad trap theme but people could feel free to cater it however they want. The blues are doing trap/pulp fiction. Not the alien looking its a trap guy.

I do understand not wanting to change the tar once the games starts, but keeping my static tar previous playoffs didnt help dick. Keep the theme the same, the tars open to change as desired.

I do like Tim tripping on the stairs. Obama in the stands, in uniform. I know half here are pubs but its just hard to ignore a bit lost here searching for a theme... he put politics ahead of sports / his own team. I f'in hate politics. Both sides are crooked.

Agreed. That's what I was really trying to say. He brought it into hockey. There's no politics in hockey. I used to think of him like, "That's a pretty good goalie right there, and it's pretty cool that he's an American." Now, all I think about is, "That is the guy who had to diss his own team as well as the President and make a personal political statement." I guess using President as the avatar might itself be seen as bringing politics into hockey, but I'm just thinking it could be done in a funny way by someone clever enough, and this is Washington's team, so, y'know, it seems appropriate.

Really I'm not good at making them, but what about like a shot or a little video thing of Dale Hunter fighting a Boston Bruin.

I was just thinking about that, and then I remembered this. This was pretty funny: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCkUjPqFLaU

Then there's this one, which is pretty cool, but Hunter's not really involved too much. I really wish Caps had never let Scott Stevens go though.

I don't even know whether it's possible to turn a YouTube thing into an avatar, so I'm gonna stop now.
