What!- Pierre rocks...
He was just a few years before his time.
I think they should dust off Pierre and bring him back in from his twentyfive games to life suspension- (I honestly don't remember his skates leaving the ice)
I still have a couple of magnetic bumper stickers on the election.. Obama has a weak slapshot and McCain is a figure skater... what's not to like?
Pierre didn't know the meaning of the word "can't" or "quit".
I'm all for Pierre, I thought it was a funny marketing campaign that had some real potential.
I've been taking my nephew to the playoff games with me and he wants to get on camera because that is what kids do. My wife and I were telling him you need a character of sorts to get on camera regularly like the hockey Pope, the Bunny, and that one kid down front covered in white. I told him that he should dress up like a snowman last game, but then when this came up again I told him he should dress like Pierre! He's been looking up these vids on Youtube so we'll see if he gets motivated to put it together.
It's hard to think of white-based characters that do not have a negative connotation. For example, you could go as a ghost, but that is not really a positive vibe and people might think you are dressed up like the KKK if it's not done right. The Bunny was a pretty good one that is getting a lot of camera time now.
