But since then, it's been too easy to make fun of Colorado. And today, we can add a little to that legacy. More after the jump.
Here's the end of an official Colorado Avalanche commerical, with the following message (credit to DetCapC19 for finding this):
Incredible. Simply incredible. This saves me time. The jokes just write themselves.
While we're at it, let's remember some of the other great Avalanche moments which the Wings can laugh at. With the retirement of Ray Bourque's number after he played 1.17 seasons in a Avs jersey, it's been downhill since then for Avs fans. (Hey Mike Modano, you chose the wrong team. If you went to Denver, your jersey would have been hung up in two cities. Oops.)
First that embarrassment. Then came the great Darren Garcia. The Chief at A2Y gave it the treatment it deserves.
Gather the kids. Warm the milk. Find that John Denver cd you keep handy for special occasions and pop it in. Because we have, that’s right, fun for the whole family.
It seems that I was born to write these two sentences: a cross-dressing male prostitute was arrested yesterday in Denver. According to various reports uncovered by Deadspin, Police described Darren Garcia as being 27, having long hair, significant amounts of makeup and wearing…
...a Colorado Avalanche jersey. Thank you god.
Glorious and perfect. Then the 2 game Forsberg "comeback" which got all 7 remaining Avs fans in such a tizzy. And now this.
Just promise me this, don't ever stop what you're doing Colorado. It's too great for the rest of us.
the best part of that picture up top is the fans in the background all jumping up to celebrate the save as if it was a goal. there's one person above the forsberg olympic sweater who sees what's going on. half of her face it cut off, but you can clearly see her D: expression.
also, that picture seems to have been taken the very instant that roy realized he didn't have the puck. he still has his glove in the air, but an 'oh crap' look on his face.
A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is a Colorado Avalanche fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they are Avalanche fans too.
Not really knowing what an Avalanche fan is, but wanting to be liked by their teacher, their hands fly into the air. There is, however, one exception. A little girl has not gone along with the crowd.
The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different.
"Because I'm not an Avalanche fan," she retorts.
"Then," asks her teacher, "what are you?"
"I'm a proud Detroit Red Wings Fan," boasts the little girl.
The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks the little girl why she is a Wings fan.
"Well, my Dad and Mom are Wings fans, so I'm a Wings fan too," she responds.
The teacher is now angry. "That's no reason," she says loudly. "What if your Mom was a moron and your Dad was an idiot. What would you be then?"
"Oh," says the little girl. "Well, then I'd be an Avalanche fan."
Oh man... there.. are.. no ... words. Keep this up and I might actually feel bad for the remaining Avs fans. MIGHT... but won't.
