Where Do We Go Now?

Hello friends! Are you confused what to do now that your team has been eliminated? Still want to watch hockey but don't want to cheer for another team because that would be blasphemy? Tired of just cheering for teams you hate to loose?
I have the answer you are looking for, and some suggestions on how to go about fulfilling your new playoff commitment!
The solution is simple and easy to follow, and the best part is that it leaves you guilt free about cheering for someone other than your beloved.
Cheer for players, not teams!
Just pick a player, or players that you think deserve, or would like to see to win the Stanley Cup!
Here are some suggestions and reasons why these players are worth cheering for.

Alexander Ovechkin - The most dynamic scorer in today's NHL, endlessly entertaining and he truly loves to score, win and just play hockey. He has all the wacky personality traits and goofy facial hairs to soften even the hardest opposing fans heart.

Martin Brodeur - He needs as many cups as he can get to be cemented as the best goalie ever. Crazy man Roy needs to be knocked down a peg.

Geno Malkin - Carried the Pens to the playoffs when Crosby was out. Reminds me of an early Forsberg, little flash, all magic.

Jarome Iginla - He is the closest thing to Wendel Clark the NHL has, and that is more than enough.

Dion Phaneuff- Just to cause Pierre Mcguire's head would explode with joy.

Gary Roberts - For all the good he did the Leafs in the past, plus if he wins a cup somewhere else maybe he'll want to come home.

Christobal Heut - It would piss of Habs fans. Call it Roy to Colorado part 2.

Jason Spezza - Just kidding!

Remember, only you can prevent cross-cheering. Pick a player, for whatever reason, and enjoy the playoffs!

Great list! Agree with em all..

A couple more suggestions:

Joe Thornton Stick it to them Bruins!
Joe Sakic Classiest player in the league
Owen Nolan Despite screwing with the leafs a bit, he has one of the best playoff beards ever.
Scott Niedermayer ditto on the beard
Teemu Selanne Growing old very gracefully (although taking 2/3rd of the season off didn't hurt)

and second on cheering for Joe Thornton to stick it to the Bruins. I'm just glad for him since he managed to get out.

every time I read that, I have to do it twice, the first time it always comes out as OVARY....TIME! And thats just confusing.

Loser Domi said...

heh, I just saw that you changed the picture. Nice, but I was kinda partial to the other one, This one is still good, though

Jaredoflondon said...

I try to change the picture every 6 months or so, just to keep things fresh. Plus, as awesome as that last picture was, Tucker wasn't exactly a good luck charm this year.

Loved the picture too.

Next year could you show a pic of the guy that rode on the back of the motorcycle of the guy with the mowhawk in Mad Max 2.
That guy looks like Tokala.
