Design Sanford's mask
The Vancouver Canucks are proud to announce today that fans will be given the opportunity to design goaltender Curtis Sanford’s mask for the 2008-09 season through a contest on Canucks.com.A neat idea for fans — but one that might work even better if the blogosphere gets involved.
“We have great fans in Vancouver and I thought this would be the ideal way for them to express themselves in a creative way and to feel part of our team,” said Curtis Sanford. “There are a lot of talented artists in our city and I have no doubt that we will receive a number of innovative and interesting designs. I am looking forward to seeing what Canucks fans come up with.”
Here's calling on The Pensblog, Puck Daddy and some of the more creative bloggers like B.D. Gallof and Earl Sleek to come up with their own award-winning goalie masks. I'll be happy to post anyone's wacky designs here as long as we can get entries in before the Aug. 25 deadline.
Maybe Sanford ends up with a mask from the blogosphere? That might not look bad on the end of the Canucks' bench.
Here's the template to use. Have at it.
