If only they still played Knock Knock after a win then we could do a whole "We are the team who knocks" thing from Breaking Bad

He's doing a pretty good job but some of his photoshopping is making me cringe a bit since I'm really familiar with the program... lots of little fixable mistakes.

I was considering going through and fixing the little mistakes he's made and re-posting them but I didn't want him to take it as an insult or like I was trying to be a dick. It's nothing major but there's some blurred edges where I can see he used the eraser tool which is usually a bad choice. Always better to use the pen tool and a layer mask. Some other things but not really a big deal, if people are happy with it then who am I to complain, they probably don't even see it since they're not used to looking for it.

I like the Remember when we sucked theme/historical tragedy theme, though not sure how many ideas we can get out of it. In the past we've been able to pretty do at least one avy for each player/coach/gm.

You have the Hindenburg, Titanic, stock market crash. What else can you really do though?

The Star Wars theme allows for a little more variety, though we CANNOT do it if the stupid Penguins fans do it.

If the Pens follow their vote that ended after the game tonight, they're not doing Star Wars.

Don't call it a comeback
We've been here for years
Rockin our beards and puttin suckas in fear
Malkin with tears rain down like a MON-soon
Listen to the shots go BOOM
Explosion, overpowerin
Over the competition, We're towerin
Wreckin shots, when I drop this puck that'll make you call the cops
Don't you dare stare, you betta move
Don't ever compare
Us to the rest that'll all get sliced and diced
Competition's payin the price

We're gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Berube said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Rinaldo gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Flyers gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)

Please tell me some of you are old enough to know the real song!

Do Leighton and Bryz count as natural disasters? How about Grossmann's stickhandling? Hartnells skating?

Or even worse, if we do SW after they DON'T do it, then it's like sloppy 2nds.

What about a superhero one?

Timonen as Ironman because he always plays hurt.
Giroux as Captain America...a play on being our Captain and not being on TC.
L.Schenn as Hulk because Hulk Smash!
Mason as Mr.Fantastic due to his split saves.
Holmgren as Nick Fury for bringing everyone together
Rinaldo as Beast
Etc

I like this one.

How about something to do with all of the overreaction at the beginning of the season? Something about the people who wanted to trade G, tank for Ekblad, blow up the team, all that good stuff. I just can't think of a clever way to tie it in right now...

How about this:
1 W- 7 L.. (next picture) with the Flyers logo
Picture of Giroux with the text "1 good year" or Couts to Edmonton or Simmonds "not enough for richards" Mason "goalie graveyard?" or "Bryz's backup? etc etc
Then proceed to the Flyers Stanley cup logo with playoffs 2014
