Last night was a disaster. A lack of communication, poor dedication, laziness and failure to take responsibility lead to the poor performance. Each one of us here at NOHS is ashamed…
Confused? Hit the jump, it's worth it.
Josh Howard put together a doozy of a movie poster for the world. I even told him that it gave me chills and that I could see it becoming a real screenplay.
Yet when the time came for one of us to step up and make the game time post, including the movie poster, no one answered the bell. My and Drew are primarily at fault, as we usually take care of this duty. I was off in a guitar store planning a future purchase of a new, nylon stringed beauty. Selfish. Drew was “in meetings” and was nowhere to be found. Boring. Jordan was planning his escape from the hellhole that is Chicago. Smart. And Twig doesn’t do pre-game posts, because he’s convinced that he’s the reason for the Great Goal Famine of 2011. He’s probably right too.
This lead to our failure to give you the great work that you’ve come to expect from Josh Howard through NOHS. And that clearly lead to the Wings giving up 7 goals (though thankfully none to Gomez) in the abortion that was last night.
So, as the head stupid goalie of NOHS, I’d like to extend to you my apologizes. And in a slight act of contrition, I give you what should have been yesterday’s gameday movie poster. When you look at it, try and forget what happened last night and just enjoy it for its pure beauty.
You deserve better than that from us. Josh Howard deserves better. We promise to you that this won't happen again (unless it does.)
Update: Would you be interested in a poster like this on your wall? Let us know in the comments.
FREAKING YES I WANT ONE! And you should do both options, a 24x36" print avaliable for purchase, and a download too.
What do you tortured souls prefer, a downloadable jpg to print yourself... or a full fledged 11x17" type poster to purchase and hang?
I'd like one of the those posters. Even if the timing wasnt exactly right! Love your work Josh, Thanks
Its a little my fault too. I was at the local sportsplex with my son and decided to walk down to the Steve Yzerman arena. an old but kept up rink were he played with the Nepean Raiders. While inside I took a picture of the sign stating the homage paid to him by the arena. Thats what did it I think. sorry.
Yeah I would like one of those posters. They are always sweet. I also blame myself for some red wing loses due to lack of compliance to game day rituals. Funny how we torment ourselves isn't it?
Yup I would be interested in getting one of those posters. How much?
And my game day rituals include clothing choice and whether one of my children are in the room when the opposition scores. Then they are not allowed to watch the rest of the game!
Probably the best I've seen.
After seeing it, yeah, you guys are to blame.
It's cool, we once lost a playoff game because I couldn't wait til intermission to go to the bathroom. I came back, the Ducks had scored.....I felt shame.
I was actually thinking this last night as the first period ended. I can't remember the last time there wasn't a poster for me to check out, but I know that if I don't look at one, we lose.
And that is an awesome one too, good job Josh.
24x36 might be tough to do for every game... but i'm sure we could pick out a few to make look nice. Perhaps have a contest??? @BenSanborn
Okay... the people have spoken and we are working on it. @WingNut83
@GabrielRadke I originally was pissed when I read this but I got it now.
@D.M.N i actually knew it wasn't up yet, but my self-inflicted pregame post ban prevented me from putting it up. can you imagine if i had put it up and they lost like that? DMN would have tarred and feathered me.
Thanks... I take full credit for such assdouchery. @D.M.N
@nickbarnhart You have pee superstition too?
sure... totally can. email me @ joshhowarddesign at gmail dot com with what you want and i'll see what i can do. If enough people want, perhaps they will end up in a NOHS store. @KevinMichael
@Twig Or at least an unfollow on twitter...
@ChrissyKraceva My life is nothing but a ritual of superstitions during the playoffs. I don't leave my chair during play for anything. Lucky pucks that I hold, red food coloring dyed beer in a Wings glass(except for afternoon games), and general observations of the nuances of my sitting position in relation to the Wings performance.....well, it probably ruins any kind of real social life during those months of April, May, and Lidstrom-willing June.
Luckily, I don't allow those superstitions to control me during the regular season. Probably because I'm a Red Wings fan and we all know the regular season means precisely jack.
@moorecha My brother was a goalie and when I drove him to games we had our own ritual. And that's where all of my crazy superstitions (which I will not discuss because I don't want to jinx them) come from. My friends make fun of me, so I sympathize with you @nickbarnhart, but I do mine all season lol
