To we Gallof boys, most situations hearken to a movie. Whether it be large or small, parody or tragedy, good news or bad, we tend to come up with some sort of twisted bent with images and other silliness to describe it.
So, in honor of this appreciation of movies, and with a huge hat tip to the boys at Yahoo’s Puck Daddy blog, we will kick off our first contest here on HockeyIndependent. Prizes are choices from a slew of movies from the Back To The Future Trilogy on DVD, to Blu Ray movies like Full Metal Jacket, Blazing Saddles, V for Vendetta, Ocean’s 11 and much more. Actually, not just one contest but two…so there are a few ways to win…
Photoshop your own “NHL Goes Hollywood”. Use you image skills, or complete lack-of, to create some funny NHL-to-movie renditions. Our own to kick this off are below. Points are for creativity, laugh-meter, and concepts. We Gallofs will judge and look for top 3 winners. Send as many images you’d like. We’ll attempt to showcase them (another hat tip to Puck Daddy) as we go along plus at the end.
Deadline for this contest is Friday, December 11th with the winner to be announced that following Monday.
Email your images to firstname.lastname@example.org and please put in the subject: NHL Goes Hollywood Entry.
What, you don’t do Photoshop or are terrible with images? Your mouse hand hurts from clutching it everytime a team shoots on your poor Maple Leafs? Well, for you we have another contest that is about wit and tweets!
On Twitter Follow @HockeyIndie our new Twitter account for HockeyIndependent and help spread the word while also coming up with
your own #NHLgoeshollywood takes of Hollywood meeting the NHL.
Here there are two ways to win prizes!
1. Top three tweets of #NHLgoeshollywood wins a prize!
2. Top three “quality” #NHLgoeshollywood overall twitterers will also win!
Sibling Rivalry will judge both these contests. That means the two Gallof boys decide. Deal with it.
Deadline for the TWEET #NHLgoeshollywood Follow @HockeyIndie contest is this coming Monday, December 7th.
Questions? Concerns? Post them below for clarity. Otherwise, make some excitement as we all gear up for the Holidays and get some loot from HockeyIndependent along with it.
Scott and I have done some of our own to kick this thing off….
And, it wouldn’t be a Sibling Rivalry without taking a shot at the Isles or Rangers, so, BD provides some NY Ranger seasonal observations a la Big Lebowski, guest-starring Sidney Crosby…
