I like where you're heads at but remember the sayings need to be short and sweet and to the point. Otherwise the whole avatar will be filled up with text.

If I have time when I get home later I'll try to throw a prototype together.

I dunno, I think Beau Knows/Kneaus should be a slide since that's how you guys got the idea...even if he doesn't play much, it would be a "what the rookie is learning" type of thing.

I was also thinking that the Beau Knows slide should have his picture so other teams' fans get it...just leave the Penguin/Cup logos out if people don't want 3 slides; or is that sacreligious?

If this is what we do, I want Cooke with "Illegal Legal Hits"

Beau Knows....
Pens make Giroux cry


That said I have mixed feelings about this theme. I am not sure anyone outside of this board will know who we are talking about.

i like the idea that Beau is literally learning things around the locker-room. so, i fully support one whole slide being dedicated to him. i also thought that three panels has been standard for a long time.

I like Beau Knows but do we really want to base our theme around a rookie with 1 goal?

I'm more and more leaning towards Revenge of A Great Day for Hockey

Possible Beau Knows slide pics:


I'd like this one with the text in the empty space under his stick, but its probably not square enough:


This one is kind of foreboding, but I like the Superman style pose haha:

Another shot of his name and number in action:

I'm thinking Call of Duty.


Hints at the lockout and playoffs.

Call of Duty

"Flowing Letang"
"Geno Subs"
"Neal Rockets"
"The Koon"
"Captain Cosby"
"Beauners"
"Eaton at Geno's"
"Eggman"
"Bort of Call"
"Elmers D"
"Engel's"
"Hooke"
"Mr. Kennedy"
"Hands of Duper"
"3rd Brand new Cutter"
"Make a Fleury"
"The Cakoun"

I am all for Beau Knows. The way Burgundy has it could work but I think I prefer just just three separate slides.

Individual: Errey knows Picklestabbers

Everybody: Beau Knows Hockey

Everybody: Penguins Playoff Logo


I think this keeps things shorter and less convoluted than Beau Knows a full sentence about someone else

even if people don't know who Bennett is, they'd almost all know the saying Bo Knows, check our roster and figure it out.

I think its perfect. I don't think it would be as good if he's established with us. He's new and fills a glaring hole we have all been complaining about. A hole every fan of every other team laughed at us for complaining about.

Though I do like A Great Day for Hockey. Not sure if we want to redo it, but we'd have a lot of new stuff. A Great Day for Beau-Ners is a nice compromise

Strongly for two panels / slides, whatever we do. Again... the more slides, the more crappy they'll all look when you integrate pictures. File size constraints are pretty small. Also the more panels, the more it will slow the server down when serving up the pages.

Also: Call of Duty and Beau Knows are both good slogans because they will allow larger fonts to be used on the small avatar space.

Bo Knows is one of those things that probably won't translate so well for our European friends...but it's hard to imagine a North American sports fan who doesn't know that one.

it'd be easy to get them up to speed. hey euros, watch this!



"Beau Knows Hockey" dovetails very nicely with the commercial, given that Gretzky is the only one who doesn't say "Bo knows ______."

its a US team in a North American league. They can figure it out

I am all for one individual slide of someone knows something followed by a Beau Knows Hockey with our playoff logo slide. That's all it takes. Two slides. One individual picture each with a saying. Its simple. Its currently relevant. Almost everyone will get it. It leaves room for both funny and more serious individual slides. I think its Beaunerific

Thinking even more, Beau Knows a full sentence about somebody else really doesn't have the feel of the commercial. Its just strange. I think more people would miss the reference. Or call out how we are misusing the reference.

Yeah I may grab, assuming we go this way,


Beau Knows
Giroux cries

or

Beau knows
your girlfriend

or

Beau knows
sock puppets

or

Beau knows
Hocket you Homer

(That last you would have had to have been here a while to get),

I will decide between the above.

We didn't lose to the Flyers because of defense or goaltending. We lost because of SOPO. Worst idea ever.

I don't get the red panda thing.
