  1. Heh. Yeah, @Dalcowboyfan92, I'd moved on from Tinypic after a hack changed all the pictures to sparkly gifs. I didn't realize as Tinypic was closing that there'd still be people rolling around with stuff that old on their sigs. I have all the originals on my computer, but since you're looking to update the pics anyway, here's an updated version!
  2. I looked through the history of the IIHF and took ten teams that seem to have all seen success in one way or another.

  10. Hadn't actually heard of this until looking it up after you said that. Not sure if it'll keep on (much like the Bernie Lean one I'd once done for an A's fan, and that barely lasted a season), but if you're a fan looking to add it to your sig, I can make it for you. Way back when, I'd originally had this in reference to the Gator Chomp (I'd always heard the song referred to as "Florida Jaws", but can't find any references to that as I search now. But Florida fans told me that they preferred I go with the one used in the actual commercials. (One also asked for these images instead, but that was a while ago) I can fill a request, though, if you'd like. I haven't gotten into the NCAA yet and it's been so crazy that I wound up behind on your sig and even posting the ones that I have done. Speaking of which, here ya go: I've been using a double reference to the fight song and a common rallying cry. But I'm on the outside looking in. If you're a fan and know better, I can change it or add an alt. It's what I did with the Gators.

CFL Western Division BC Lions A reference to the city's geographic location Calgary Stampeders A reference to the team's nickname Edmonton Eskimos A reference to the Klondike Gold Rush's important place in the city's history Saskatchewan Roughriders A reference to the team fight song Winnipeg Blue Bombers A reference to the team's name
  12. CFL Eastern Division Hamilton Tiger-Cats A reference to the city's steel industry Montreal Alouettes A reference to the children's song "Alouette" (which I discovered while doing this is A LOT more messed up than I thought) Ottawa Redblacks A reference to the sung legend of Big Joe Mufferaw, the basis for the team's mascot Toronto Argonauts A reference to the team's nickname
  13. WNBA Eastern Conference Dallas Wings A pun on the team's former identity Los Angeles Sparks A reference to the Kanye West song Las Vegas Aces A line from the Elvis song Minneosta Lynx A reference to the wild nature of the lynx Phoenix Mercury A reference to the other song titled "Heat Wave" Seattle Storm A reference to the team's status as Seattle's last remaining basketball team
  14. WNBA Eastern Conference Atlanta Dream A reference to Dr. King's speech ("we have a dream" sounded way too overstepping) Chicago Sky A reference to the motto of the team's home of Rosemont, Illinois Connecticut Sun A common idiom Indiana Fever A line from the song "Heat Wave" New York Liberty A reference to the poem at the feet of the Statue of Liberty Washington Mystics A reference to the Screamin' Jay Hawkins song
