Caption This

This seems like it needs a caption contest, no?

Down Goes Brown in Hockey Night in Canada

(Glove tap to @mserven for the image.)

Update: I think these are the leaders heading into the clubhouse:

"As you can see, Down Goes Brown has just set a new record, going 5 tweets without making a 'Wellwood is fat' joke." - lordosis

"Thank you Ron Maclean, for pointing out for the 437th time that Toronto has traded their first round, lottery bound pick. Now, in keeping with our night's theme of pissing off Brian Burke, we would like to introduce all of you to..." - BetterThanBester

"Maybe it's time CBC reviewed its internet use policy." - DeanoTPS

"Wait, is this the real Down Goes Brown? I need conformation from Dave Shoalts." - Space Weed

  47. I just realized that Calgary must have the best practices ever. Chris Higgins shooting on Vesa Toskala. One man who couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat shooting on a guy who can take a wide shot and put it squarely in the net every time. The irresistible wideness against the immovable glove hand. Who will win?

  65. While searching the web the other day looking for help for my constipation problem, I came across this little gem of a website....

    ReplyDelete
  66. "Brian Burke reportedly is furious for the blogger called "Down goes brown" for impersonating him in twitter, however breaking news suggests that Down goes brown actually is Brian Burke himself and this is just clever manipulation of media and keeping attention away from failed deadline deals, just like bringing the Kessel deal up everytime Burke feels threattened about the question"

    Please feel free to correct that caption´s spelling and english as im not native speaker.
