Big effort, mediocre results—The Central Division

Pesky, pesky readers.

I wish you would do a cute li'l picture like that for all the divisions. The Northeast, in particular, might prove challenging.
This, of course, was response to my little cartoon about the cute Pacific division mascots.

Well, I did pretty well with my post on the Northwest Division, but the challenge of ‘cartooning’ the various team names in hockey is getting tougher, as some team names are less inspiring than others, and honestly, there are some teams that I am less fond of also.

I dunno, though, the balance of mixing a cute cartoon with a clever joke can often turn into a pretty corny result, as evidenced by my slightly-hung-over attempt at the Central Division.

From left to right, the Columbus Blue Jacket, the Nashville Predator, the Detroit Red Wang (yeesh!), the Chicago Black MoHawk (any excuse for a Mr. T), and the St. Louis Blues-Clues.

A perfect example of how putting in more time and effort doesn’t always yield better results, but hey, I tried.

I guess next time I'll start moving along to the Eastern conference. Suggestions are, as always, (desperately) appreciated.

Even so, Earl, this is still great stuff. I don't get the Blues-Clues though.
The Predator looks pretty freaky though! LOL! Love it.

I dont know if I have any suggestions for the Eastern Conference, but I'll check it out.

The Blackhawks should pay you to remake their jerseys into a Mr. T jersey.

Funny as hell as always.

The Boston Bruins demand a Winnie the Pooh reference, or some similar such cute fuzzy bear. You know, as vengeance for their third jersey.

My suggestion is to stop. Now. Please!

St Louis Blues-Clues? Oh, brother.

Detroit Red Wang is pretty funny though. heh.

From Wikipedia, "Blue's Clues is a daytime children's show which airs on Nickelodeon. The series follows a blue dog named Blue through her everyday life."

Actually, I was cut offline most of the weekend, so I kind of drew the Predator and Blues Clues off the top of my head. I don't think I've ever seen the show, though.

I saw a license plate today that said MRTSVET, but the guy inside was not black, muscled or mohawked. Still, word is getting out!

There are about 1 billion cute bears to choose from.

You may be right, though I still might want to take a shot at redemption later, especially should liquor get involved.

Hmm, shot... of liquor? Sounds good to me.
