Just as the voting had to end, so must begin the campaign to take the winner to the masses. You have selected the graphic that should have been and I’ll unveil it to you in less than twenty seconds, or however long it takes you to read the next two paragraphs. Bubba, you have six hours.
In the end, it was art over wit, talent over cynicism. For our purposes, pushing our graphic to the general public, the right choice was made.
But, man…I had my sights set on BJ’s for everyone. Now without further delay, I give you the winner of the “replace the Fire On Ice graphic because it truly resembles the work of a fourth grade girl experimenting with pastels and cute little hockey icons” contest.
Here’s the plan. With Saginaw John’s permission, I’m going to send that to John Hahn and every Wing staffer’s address I can find. I’m going to send it to the papers, and to the Detroit radio stations. I’ll forward it to the Wing bloggers who don’t grab it off this post and I’ll slap it on the right sidebar—most likely within 48 hours.
I don’t expect the organ-I-zation to replace their graphic. That would require too much humility. Nope, all I want is acknowledgment. Acknowledgment that our boy John, for nothing, kicked their asses…which he did. It’s a quest, a grass roots movement, a crusade and a revolution. All that stuff.
Can there be any doubt?

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.
