I love the Barry's Bunch avatars. If you could somehow get them to work after they are shrunk, those would be awesome!

Love them both but Barry's bunch would be my vote- anything to shed my twitter guy Blum for a bit. Wow, what a choice at the start of the year by me.

The Barry Bunch meh. Not a big fan of that. Do love the Spaling one with "there's an offensive zone?"

Adzy and I were throwing ideas around at the Edmonton game. We started thinking of songs/movies that had gold in the title "Goldfinger" came and we started going off on a James Bond theme. There are enough Bond movies to take material from. Just throwing it out.

I wholeheartedly endorse this idea.

...unless someone thinks that makes this inherently a bad idea since I still cheer on the Jackets first, in which case I hate this idea and hope it never happens.

Whatever is fine with me, just let me know soon, so that I can get them to you. Once a theme is decided on, I will post an example of what I come up with and then that can be tweaked or whatever so it's to everyone's liking.

Fleshing this out a little bit...

1st frame is a players pic, with the name on top and "looks good in Gold" on the bottom (or as the 2nd frame, if thats too small)

next frame is "so would this" and it is the cup but photoshopped to be colored gold..

thoughts??

(wish I could make one myself... it looks good in my head, I promise.. )

Can I get one that shows Kevin Klein making Chili at the Whole Foods kitchen? I want it to say, "Kevin Klein's Chili: It Will Take The ass Right Out of You" or "Slingin' ******* since 2010"

Sounds fine. We already have pics of the players from the current "Gold Rush" ones, so in order to save time and work, why not just use those player pics on the first frame, with the second "Looks Good In Gold" (even reusing the Pred logo used now just changing the text we currently use if you really want to save effort), and then the third frame is the gold colored cup with "2012 Playoffs" text.

By reusing the player pic frame, the only work created is changing the text on frame #2, and a new frame #3 of the gold cup. Just trying to minimize work for our "volunteer" graphics guy.

Maybe if this is the case, since it sounds like you're saying someone is attractive, maybe I can find a picture of Carrie Underwood in a gold jersey (if there is one) and use that instead of a player haha....which, of course, would ironically be Fisher.

well, I wasnt referring to their actual attractiveness, just the variation of what people say when they want a player on their team, ie "Parise would sure look good in gold"

and again thanks so much to thrasher for the help with these!!

haha yeah I know. But of course the more I think about it I wonder if there actually is a picture of Carrie in a gold jersey, because I'm pretty sure I'd use that. Hmmm...
