The Time Has Come... for Buffstrom

Look at 'em. They're like twins. Almost. Sort of.

Listen up, Thrashers' fans.

All ten of you.

We have a crisis on our hands. Something that demands our urgent and utmost attention. We must band together and put our collective wills into this effort. This is the latest update on voting for All-Star defensemen. Take a look at this injustice:

Buff is in 9th, and Toby is in 31st behind such luminaries as who? Kris Letang? Pffft. PK Subban? Andrei Markov? Those Habs fans are at it again, stuffing the digital ballot box. I guess they ran out of things to light on fire. Markov's injured, he can't even play. Neither can Chris Pronger. Besides, we can't let Pronger anywhere near the ASG - everything not nailed down would disappear, and that would probably include the Montreal forwards. He could stuff like, three or four of those guys in his pockets, and we'd never see them again.

Look, point is, we're running out of time, and we need to do something. My proposal: we campaign for Buffstrom '11. What is Buffstrom '11? It's the idea that the Thrashers have the best top D-pairing in the NHL, and it's time they all recognized. It's the idea that these two fine young men must both be propelled into the All-Star Game, and anything less would be... less. It's bigger than you, bigger than me, bigger than all of us. These guys are truly a team, and they belong together at this glorified skills competition centerpiece of quality hockey. They are two halves of a whole,the sum is greater than the parts, like... like... Voltron, man. Yea, Voltron.

What about those empty cough syrup bottles? I've been sick. Don't judge me.

Listen, we need to get this off the ground. I've got some slogans done up here, and I want you guys to vote on them. We'll take the best ones and comment bomb as many places as we can. We've only got a limited amount of time remaining - we need to go all Banksy on this mother. Guerilla style, knawmean? If you have a better slogan, post it in the comments, and we'll add it to the ballot.

But before you do that, do this:



Text "Byfuglien" or "Enstrom" to 81812

Vote Buffstrom 11.


Buffstrom '11. Cause it's what the cool kids are doing.
