Morning Free Association 3/3/16

Good morning, everyone! The 2016 World Cup of Hockey initial rosters were announced. The first 16 players for each team were announced, with the remaining 7 to be announced by July 1. From the Bruins, Loui Eriksson will play for Sweden, the Davids will play for the Czech Republic, Tuukka for Finland, Chara and Seidenberg for the Team Europe amalgamation, and Patrice Bergeron will perfectly represent Team Canada.

Icethetics has the full rundown of the World Cup jerseys here. I particularly like the USA away jersey and the Sweden home jersey.

What’s on tap?

Does anyone know if there’s a tutorial available on how to do things (fonts, images, etc.) in WordPress comments?

Heres a link for you: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_formatting.asp

Basically, its standard html formatting procedure with a couple nice perks- links dropped in will be links (as full url, if you want it to be other text as the link, then you need the html) and for images, you can just paste the image url into the comment box as is and it will automatically insert the image, which is even easier than the SBNation image function

Got it! For sarcasm font, use the “code” tag.
So, if you want something to be sarcastic, you type it as:
[less than]code[greater than]your sarcastic comment[less than]/code[greater than].

My final straws were “Fire Claude, Bench Rask, Waive Killer” posting a half-dozen or more dumpster-fire gifs all over articles about the trade deadline moves & some lurker coming out of the woodwork to be a douche, calling Sidney Crosby “Cindy”. It seems that a lot of the new posters are assholes like that.

Well, I’m loving what you’ve done with the place so far! It’s the little things that make it, like the “Pasta Comment!” button and “Recch” & “Bag Skate” for thumbs up/down.

Alas, most of that Recchage goes to S81 and IW. I just coordinate, poorly at times.

So Puckdaddy thinks the team North America Jerseys are the best.

This is simply untrue. They are like something the bad guys in V for Vendetta wear if they wore those terribad Black Ice jerseys

The North American ones are so hilariously silly I almost like them. My personal ranking:
1. Sweden
2. Russia
3. Finland
4. USA
5. Czech Republic
6. Canada
7. North America
8. Europe

DrHandgrenaid

I’d put Czech ahead of USA, but yeah, otherwise thats about right

I enjoy the dark color schemes for sports jerseys, so I rather like them. The A on the crest is a little too much like an oil derrick, though.
The Team Europe one is too generic & corporate.

Satan 81's Sister

Satan 81's Sister

The Europe one feels like an afterthought. “Oh shit, we still have one more we have to do and the deadline is in five minutes.”

Thetallest81

I really enjoy the North America color schemes…the lettering seems a little…amateurish…but i like it

I like the North America one a bit, actually, and I’m not ashamed.

That said, the Europe one looks like the Whalers and the Canucks alt logos had a baby that fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
