Non-Cup banners or the choking hazards get my vote.

Or we could do something like, "How to identify a Caps fan in the playoffs."

I feel like embracing the choking hazard is closest to appropriate.

We can't put those filtered words in the images so I removed it.

If we do the banners we'll need to decide on the rest of the panels. It lends itself to a multi-panel story rather than just a bunch of cycling banners.

I'm thinking something like this

Slide 1: [Poster's banner of choice]
Slide 2: Hanging [Meaningless]* in the Verizon Center for 20 years**
Slide 3: The Only Banner that Matters [Picture of a Stanley Cup Banner]


*Or some other word
**Hey, the VC opened 20 years ago

I was thinking something like


1- Some kind of "Another Banner year for the Caps!" or "Another year, another banner!" or similar splash type of hype panel with Caps logo. Maybe the wide shot of all the old Verizon banners as the background image.

2- A brief pic or animation of a banner raising ceremony but you can't read the banner

3- The gag banner

4- a laughing Stanley Cup

5- playoff logo if desired

Was going to whip up a rough draft of something like this, but I forgot that they don't do banner raising ceremonies for President's Trophy banners... will have to get creative.

I'm not clever enough but if we're going with banners I need something related to stats/Corsi.
