The days are getting longer and warmer. The fridge is fully stocked with booze and hunks of meat waiting to be grilled. You have stocked up on antacid. Your favourite hockey jersey hasn’t been washed since last summer and can stand up by itself.
It’s the hockey playoffs. You are ready, but something is still missing. Things feel… incomplete.
Worry not, because A2Y has your solution:
The 4th Annual “Pierre McGuire is a Douche Canoe” Contest
That’s right, the annual contest which actually brings some joy to Pierre McGuire appearing on your TV broadcast, if only to anticipate his utter humiliation. The game is non-partisan. All you have to have is a deep, loathing hatred of Pierre McGuire and the desire to want him humiliated on national TV.
The prize? Highly coveted. The rules? Simple.
Please spread the word about The 4th Annual “Pierre McGuire is a Douche Canoe” Contest, this year we hope to award a winner who will be forever immortalized as a hero to the hockey world.
THE PRIZE: Two tickets to a regular season Leafs game of your choice in Toronto at the Air Canada Center during the 2011-2012 season. (regular season game against the Red Wings excluded/playoff games not applicable in Toronto)
Make a sign which says, “Pierre McGuire is a Douche Canoe”. Go to an NHL playoff game. Get your “Pierre McGuire is a Douche Canoe” sign behind Pierre Mcguire’s head on TV at some point during the broadcast. Collect your prize and praise, bask in your victory.
That’s how easy it is. Get the sign behind that giant, bulbous head and win.
In order to ensure the correct hockey hero gets their prize, I highly recommend using the official contest email to notify me in advance of your attempt (be specific about which game and what your sign looks like). All attempts will be kept confidential. Good luck.
Official contest email:
Remember you don’t have to attempt to win the contest to help us out. Spread the word to as many people as you can about the contest, we need a winner this year.

About Abel to Yzerman
Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
