How about:

Handshakes against the Canadiens

"Meaningless game in October"

Handshakes against the Lightening

"Meaningless game in November"

Handshakes against the Flyers

"Meaningless game in December"

Handshakes against the Bruins

"Meaningless game in January"

This team doesn't deserve Penguin Classics. Baby punches and sarcasm are a necessity.

Another valid anti-book argument. There is nothing classic about this team.

What about a "...For Dummies" Theme and we can use Bylsma's stupid face and dumb **** he does.

Example: How to play a HOF out of position... FOR DUMMIES. - Slide 1

Picture of Dan looking like an idiot - Slide 2

Pens SCPO - slide 3

"How to over play Tanner Glass... FOR DUMMIES"

"How to never scratch Craig Adams... FOR DUMMIES" etc.

I like the get along gang theme.

I also like the coping with bylsma theme. Start with a general Pens screen, change to the smug bylsma, then change to the coping mechanism such as the baby punch, chugging liquor, garbage man freaking out, etc. We poke fun at ourselves as well as Dan.

Some more examples.

How about a "The Song Remains The Same" theme?

Since y'know....nothing will positively change in these upcoming playoffs and it'll be the same old ****.

While a Pokémon theme would be awesome, it would be hard to restrict the gifs to only three frames:


As long as smug Bylsma is involved I'm happy.

A groundhog day movie theme combined with a smug Bylsma would about sum this team up.

What about a De Pens theme. Every thing has the Spanish "De" in front.

De Bylsma
De Playoffs
De Depres - I don't get this one
De Crosby

To be honest this one fits how I have felt about the Pens all year. And I could care less if they traded for Ovechkin, Orr, Mario and Gretzky in their primes. I would feel the same. Bylsma would just play Gladams and Orpik over all three and bench them.

All in was last year.

This year should be 'one in a million shot'.

I support this on one condition. We use that picture of Lloyd but don't put the words "so you're telling me there's a chance" with it. People should be able to get that reference without needing the words.

The one in a million shot thing would not have to be explained, though some might be curious about it given our record.


PS: As an aside, that animated gif of yours is creeping me out.

A little of this...


A little face replacement...
