As per the Twitter feed, there is a new "Chosen Ones" season tickets promotion. Buy 2 Lower Bowl or 4 Upper Bowl Season Tickets and the lucky purchaser will find himself with a Number 42 sweater with "C" patch autographed by David BaCkes himself.
Oh, Lordy, where to start? Yes, it's awesome that you get an autographed jersey from David Backes, but now I'm stuck making "Kung Pow" jokes. This makes me wonder which of Backes' former sparring partners is now Master Pain, who prefers to be called "Betty."
I also have to wonder now if David Backes has a symbiotic relationship with a being he only knows as "Tonguey." Has David Backes "chosen" the large tub? Will Jonathan Toews start playing songs about big butts and then try to beat you up? Will David Backes revert to his Minnesota roots and use gopher-chucks on someone? These questions have answers, but I'm not sure if we're ready to hear those answers.
