Making Fun of the Enemy

imageI’m starting to think Sharks fans are sorta cool—or at least have a bit of a sense of humor about their team, unlike too many other people. Aside from getting nothing but polite and thoughtful comments from them personally, I also noted this photoshoppery thread at their message boards, making fun of the Canucks, but also openly inviting Canucks fans to do the same. 

Which is where I found this image of (H/D?) Sedin.  Posted prior to Sunday, but a nice epilogue for game 1, I think. smile

Of course, appreciating their willingness to spar means taking a few hits ourselves.  And while the whole tiresome “Sedin sisters” theme continues on boringly, there’s also some more unusual and entertaining efforts.

That Luongo bit is pretty clever.  I’ll have to think on it a bit if I’m going to compete with that level of evil, but meanwhile, here’s a shot at the Sharks, thoughtfully produced by the Sharks themselves:  their “Christmas album” from last December. 

A couple screenshots are below (thanks, Sharkspage!) and here’s a direct link for the video in question, of you can click on either of the images.

Maybe everyone else had seen this atrocity before, but I hadn’t.  I think my ears are bleeding.

The Nucks fans have been the best as far as Photoshop talent and creativity and humor for sure out of the past 2 years!
