Rich "Raptor Jesus" Peverley (Summary of the night Post #57 - NEW UPDATE 1/10)

Full summary on Post #57 http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...1&postcount=57

Just wanted to give HFBoards a shoutout and a heads up.

Tonight at the Dallas Stars vs Nashville Predators game - make sure to tune in and look for me and my friend. We are dressing up as Raptor Jesus with Masks and Jerseys customized with "Raptor Jesus" on the back of #17 jerseys for Rich Peverley.

Raptor Jesus is the nickname for Peverley that originated on HFBoards. It has carried with him from team to team and we wanted to make sure he knew about it

I started a thread in the Dallas forums but also wanted to make others aware!
http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1562073


It should be fun! Look for us and cheer us on for Peverley! We will be DIRECTLY behind the Dallas Stars bench. The guy is an outstanding person in real life and really awesome. Thanks HFBoards for being awesome and having an epic community that can help spawn cool instances like this *high five*

The signs



The Raptor Mask



The jerseys

Now we need someone to dress as hamburglar with a Olli Jokinen jersey. And someone to hold up "all you can eat, free buffé" signs directed at Byfuglien.

People got to get photos of this. I hope the cameras films you. You'll probably end up on the news, tsn at least. Like those people who all dressed as Jaromir Jagr from different years during his career.

I want a new avatar gimme something worthy to use .

TBH, I'm pretty sure (as someone who was there when it happend) it was "Raptor Jezus" at the beginning. Just sayin.

It started on the Thrashers board when he got picked up by Atlanta from Nashville and went on a PPG-rate over the next 20 or so games as the center of Kovys line.

It did. It was Jezus on the original post but no one kept calling it that and continued using Jesus. That is why "Rich Peverley Raptor Jesus" is the popular search result on Google. Raptor Jezus instead of Jesus is not (Only comes up with a couple links)

It changed a little I guess

I think it's super cool that people still call him Raptor Jez/sus. I never thought it would stay for a longer time, let alone multiple seasons and probably for his whole career now. He deserves it. He's probably the best waiver pick up in history.

Peverley was my first favorite player. I started following the Thrasers on a daily basis one year before they picked up Peverley. He came up and just dropped jaws everywhere in Atlanta. You had to love him. I was pretty sad when they traded him to Boston (which was a very good deal for both sides after all).

We could always compromise and use Jeszus (rhymes with Handzus).

Some great memories from HFThrashers being the board that coined his long lasting nickname.

Was always a fan of his and as said he is a really nice guy IRL as well. I'll be watching for you guys.

Never heard of this nickname. I don't have center ice, I don't think anyone outside of Dallas and Nashville will watch this game. But good luck, maybe I will see you on nhl tonight.

Ever heard of GameCenter, satellite TV and streams?

This reminds me of the time I got to meet Mikael Granlund and told him his nickname of Finnish Baby Jesus that originated here. Needless to say, he didn't know about it prior

I hope you get a reaction out of him!

Agreed.

IIRC, big props to poster AintLifeGrand who is the originator of the name.

Can't wait to explain to my fiance why we have to watch portions of the Dallas game before the Bruins when I'm home from work.

Nice! The Holy Assembly of the Raptor Jesus convenes once more.

I miss Thrashers board. Probably the most delightfully weird crew that ever graced these boards.

Remember their fan dispersal draft... That was pretty epic.

I like Peverly and miss him and think the Raptor Jesus nickname one of the best.

That's ****ing awesome

I used to always call him "The Pev Dispenser" but i think i like this nickname better. I'd be almost willing to bet to with Dallas's screwball announcing team (i mean that in a good way) that this gets some airtime.

I, for one welcome our new scaled overlord.
