It’s coming. The pinnacle of competition, the crescendo of a long, arduous hockey season, the Stanley Cup playoffs are nearly upon us. The players are beginning to consider their stubble. The annual, time-honored tradition of rejecting the razor and cultivating those glorious gardens of whiskers is no longer just a hopeful wish for their futures. Yes, my friends, the time of the playoff beard is at hand. And you, the hockey fan, the buttress of their courage, the jock strap of their fortitude, are considering your playoff options as well.
Let me point out that you also have been ‘tapped’ with an obligation to this glorious pilgrimage. You, as passed along in the doctrine of hockey, must prepare yourself for battle as well. You must maintain a competitive sneer on your ‘mug.’ You must be a catalyst of ‘cheers’ and always ‘raise the spirits’ of your team. You will ‘toast’ your team’s success, and will ‘drown your sorrows’ at each setback. You will tighten your ‘belt,’ cheer every ‘shot,’ and lead a ‘round’ of applause every time the opposition is ‘smashed’ into the glass.
And so it is, the players quit shaving and grow playoff beards. The fans start drinking and get playoff beered.
And keep in mind, it’s bad luck for your team if you quit drinking before the playoffs end. Don’t let your team down. And to show you’re doing your part, you really should be wearing the new, just-in-time-for-the-cup-run, ‘Playoff Beered’ designs from Hockey Shirt Shop and eBrush Design. In addition to all of our great shirts, this one looks particularly handsome on our steins and beer glasses! No time should be ‘wasted.’ Get yours right now and be ready for the Stanley Cup run.
