Gary Lawless Haiku contest!

As you are probably aware, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press made some outlandish remarks about the Hershey Bears’ Calder Cup Championship sweaters featuring the Manitoba Moose’s logo as a shoulder patch which they designed (and donned) for charity. You’re also probably aware of our crusade to provide Mr. Lawless with a warm welcome when the Moose trek to the Giant Center for a 2 game series Saturday, February 5th and Sunday, February 6th.

As part of this movement, we’ve been holding several contests for you win your very own “Hershey Bears Pride” shirt… and it’s time for another. It’s simple: pen your best haiku that involves the Bears, the Moose, Lawless, or any combination of the three by puck-drop for the Capitals-Islanders game on Thursday (that’s 7PM for people who haven’t looked that far into the future) and leave it for us in the comments section of this post. For those of us who can’t remember what we had for dinner last night, let alone 3rd grade English class, here’s your refresher: a Haiku is a timeless form of Japanese poetry that features lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, respectively.

Winner will be announced Thursday night during the game (or the morning after, depending on how the Caps’ power play goes). Word of caution: please be sure to leave a good email address so we can contact you to receive your goods; no email, no shirt. Let’s do it!
