Here's a Headline for ya Gary.
"Juvenile 'Columnist' Disgraces Rich Tradition of Journalistic Integrity"
Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press has done it again. When will this guy ever learn? We know that as bloggers, it’s hardly fair of us to criticize those working under the constant pressure of deadlines and travel schedules, but someone needs to send him a message. Who better than the die-hard faithful fans of the Hershey Bears (that includes Caps fans too)?
In case you haven’t heard, Lawless’ most recent Hershey-bashing article was in this morning’s print edition of the Winnipeg Free Press. It’s also available online here. Today Gary Lawless questioned the class and grace of the longest running, most successful franchise in the AHL. He also called out the Hershey Bears – telling them that if they didn’t bring the Back to Back Calder Cup Championship sweaters in question to Manitoba, that they were “gutless.” I’m sure Mr. Lawless is by now aware of the fact that these sweaters were a “one-time-wear” special edition that were auctioned off for charities immediately after their debut, but maybe that’s not enough.
To show the support of the Hershey Bears and to have a little fun with Gary Lawless, RTR has released a special edition t-shirt at a special edition cost of $11.90 per shirt. Manitoba (and most likely, Mr. Lawless) will be visiting the Giant Center for a 2 game series Saturday, February 5th and Sunday, February 6th. We’re encouraging all fans to join our movement and wear this shirt to show Mr. Lawless exactly where we wear our pride. Buy them for yourself, buy them for your friends & family, heck you can even buy them for the cool elderly couple that sits in your section and may not be familiar with the interwebs! We'll poke around and see if we can find some discount codes too
Also, be on the look out for contests and promotions within the next week where we’ll be giving away a few Hershey Pride shirts! Join the movement!
Let us know if you stop by the 'ol Free Press and leave Gary a comment too. Try to keep it clean though. We're a classy organization. (Winky Emoticon)
