Help Out GT: Win Tix For Saturday!

Due to a whole raft of reasons I'd rather not go into (read: admit), I can't attend either of the next two home games. So, while the Saturday game is going on, I'll be at home working on the Monday issue of our game day paper. I've already given up the Monday tickets, but Saturday's against the Rangers are available.

You want 'em? You can have 'em. But like everything around here, I'm gonna try to make you do some work for me before I give them to you.

If you're unfamiliar with our game day paper (and if you are, for shame), it's like a program for the diehard fan. The diehard fan who also likes cursing. And dick jokes. It also often has a page dedicated to helping you, the reader, get on the jumbotron. We usually print a funny slogan or saying or some such nonsense about the game or a player from the other team and it winds up on the jumbo way more often than not. The most popular and most-jumboed is the traditional "Black Hawks Suck" which seems to get on almost every time.

For Saturday's game, make the best slogan we can use or give me a great photoshop sign I can print on that page and you win my tickets to the game. Simple enough? If you can make a great sign, perfect. If you're no graphic designer but you come up with the best Rangers or Ranger player or Avery insult and if I like it, you win.

Keep in mind it has to fit on one 8.5 x 11 sheet (one page of the program), though it can work in portrait or landscape. It could be as detailed as our famous Hockeyslum image:


or it could be as simple as, "Nice Purse, Avery!"

I'll announce the winner at some point Friday eve, so don't wait too long to get in your submission. The winner will have two tickets in Sec. 307, commonly known as The Best Section In The World. You'll pick them up with John, our head GT vendor and I'll even throw in a free copy of the paper that features your sign.

Post all submissions in the comments on this post; everyone else is welcome to rec their favorites and attempt to sway my vote with over the top praise. If there are any questions, I may or may not answer them. Friday is gonna be kind of busy for me.
