The Maatta thing sounds a lot like what the Blackhawks board did with Oduya a couple years ago. Wasn't really that great.

All In lost to Boston
#SOPO lost to Philly
Established 2005 lost to Tampa.
I'm with Gary lost to Montreal.

I think that speaks for itself.

But Bylsma doesn't make it a great day for hockey in the playoffs. A great day to get fired?

I bet you were singing a different tune when Penguins Books got taken over by #SOPO last time it had momentum.

I don't like the book idea at all. Actually it's terrible.

Saying Penguin Books is better than SOPO is like saying it's better to be jailed in Thailand than it is to be jailed in N. Korea.

There are a handful of book titles that would be kind of funny but on balance it's not something the whole forum or even a majority of the forum would be enthusiastic about. We've seen this movie before... .

When someone offers up a better idea, I will support it. Nobody seems to like my idea to reuse Its a Great Day for Hockey even though its a proven winner and has pretty much unlimited options for people to customize it.

Do we need a theme? We should just all rock that picture of Danny B. It would be so creepy, yet so great.

Wasn't there a Pokémon idea being floated around at one time?

Someone had a wine theme the #SOPO year, that might be interesting.

The country club idea isn't bad, maybe with a Caddyshack twist ... instead of chasing a gopher, chasing the Cup instead.

Or maybe go with an entitlement spoof, like those Right Guard commercials from the 90's "Anything less would be uncivilized."

Or the Torts v. Bylsma idea ... some negative comment in the first panel, like Torts calling the team arrogant ... smug Bylsma ... 2014 Cup

First shot:

With text over top like:

"I don't think Fleury's a legit #1"

"I think Crosby needs a winger"

"I think we have too many grinders"






Then:

I kind of like the creepy factor with this, random Bylsma pictures would also be accepted.

we have an excuse to use The Rock in our theme. I think we should take that opportunity and run with it.

really though, I have no idea how we could stretch that into enough interesting customized panels.

If you guys don't come up with something from the Get Along Gang, I'll be severely disappointed in your collective creativity.

This is perfect:
