Canucks and Beyond

When politics and hockey collide, it’s seldom interesting, fun or even all that rational. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to discover a new candidate had entered the American political arena—one who, in his own words, “isn’t afraid to dig in the corners and make goalies wet their pants.”
It’s Pierre, the Phoenix Coyotes own mascot with the bad French accent and a plan for exactly nothing.
But that hasn’t stopped him from campaigning…
His website is Pierre08.com—currently I’m having trouble accessing it, but it might just be my computer. If not, I’m sure they’ll fix any issues shortly.
It is silly? Sure. But the Coyotes have a great track record for producing clever promotions and fun media for their online fans that plenty of the more entrenched old-school hockey markets could learn from. (Off the top of my head, I’d say some other ‘unconventional’ hockey markets with a gift for clever promotions would be the Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars.)
Below are some bumper stickers.

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.
So that's me. Who the hell are you?
