Yeah, it's fun and the rest of the board does it, so we must conform

Not really sure we have any reason to be superstitious. It's not like we have lost 15 years in a row with these things.

What's the point of making the playoffs if you can't come up with a sweet theme?

i think "not having themed avatars" should be our theme.


good idea, right?

I'm all for solidarity come playoff time, so I'm definitely fine with having playoff avatars.

What, and give up this classic?

But seriously - I voted no, but could be persuaded by a great concept.

Here's a lame one, but I'll throw it out there. I attribute our success this year largely to 3 factors: Miller, Myers, and the Mythical healthy Connolly. So, maybe M&M(&M?)-themed avatars would be appropriate?

Lame? Probably.

Potentially funny? Possibly.

I seem to be in the minority, but I voted yes. I think it'd be cool to have a playoff theme.

Easy theme: Internet memes!

We already have 2Tylers1Cup ready.
Patrick Kaleta as Chuck Norris.
Ryan Miller as the ORLY owl.
Chris Butler as Andy Samberg in the "I'm On A Boat" skit.

Lots of potential.

---

Or let's go the Chris Drury route.

All our avatars are the same exact picture of the Stanley Cup (I'm sure all the superstitious folks will love it).

---

Or steal straight from "Major League". We all get "Babe"* avatars, but cover it up with 16 squares. After each win, we take off one square.

Call me superstitious, but I say we go without them.

Or even better, our theme can be "no avatars"--as in we all lose our avatars and go avatar-less. A show of solidarity against the cursed (and reverse the curse) avatars of years past.

Seems to me that it can only go wrong.

Also in other news. Hey everyone. I've been lurking all season and figured that I'd finally jump in.
