For anyone who doubts the underground popularity of the NHL.com Front Page Pun Headlines... be sure you check out the "90s NHL.com Headlines" hashtag meme that was started Monday afternoon by Ryan Classic. The premise was simple... take your favorite NHL star from the 1990's and insert them into the format of a NHL.com Pun Headline that could grace the front page of NHL.com... if there were an NHL.com in the 1990's.
Hasn't changed one bit!
The initial tweet from Ryan Classic of "Tricks are for Kidd" created quite the rush of great 90's-era pun headlines.
Even the folks over at NHL.com took notice of this latest episode of The 90s Are All That...
But as Owen Nolan taught us this past week... you can't live in the past forever. That's why it's time for the Eastern Conference Edition of the Pundays Playoffs... where your favorite NHL.com Pun Filled Headlines battle it out each week until a Pundays Champion is crowned. And the best part of all... you decide the winner!
Last week, we released the 8 best Western Conference Pun Headlines from the 2010-2011 NHL season. This week, it's the East's time to shine. We are doing this NHL Playoff style... there will be 8 Pun Headlines from the West and 8 from the East. Each week, you'll vote on your favorites and the ones with the most votes will continue on to the next round until we have 1 Pun Headline from each Conference. Then... they will battle it out in the ultimate Punday Cup Final.
What do you say? Are you ready to have at it?!?
