"Free Candy"

Postby CT Mechanic on Tue Sep 23, 2008 12:41 pm

So I have to retire my "WWGRD?" sign. :( I was thinking of maybe going with "Free Candy" for the home opener, but I don't know the whole story behind it. How did Brooks Orpik come to be associated with a slogan usually used by pedophiles and flashers?

Because people said he looked like someone who rides in the beat up van offering free candy to kids.

That video is priceless.

I died a little inside when I heard he doesn't like his nick name.

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with choc'late and a miracle or two
The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow, wrap it in a sigh
Soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie
The Candy Man, the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

It did come from thepensblog, but I thought the story went that one of the writeups made mention of "Orpik handing out hits like he was handing out free candy at halloween" (exact wording might be off). A day or so later, a photoshop of Orpik in the infamous free candy van surfaced.

I could be off a little or maybe even totally wrong about all of it, but I want to say it was during one of the January games from this past season.

Here are a couple that I was thinking of:

"The Fedotenko Zone"

Maybe that's it, I can't remember the other one because I was drunk.

I thinks its great, BUT, I dont think Orpik does. At the town hall meeting when Steigy mentioned it, Brooks hung his head and didnt really look like he appreciated it. If its in relation to halloween and handing out free candy, then it shouldnt be a problem. But if its in reference to his picture and looking like a guy who hands out free candy to little kids...then i wouldnt appreciate people using that line either.

Howza bout:

"I Love Tang"

Kris Letang, that is.

Or, if you'd prefer something a bit more gender-neutral: "Tang is Great"

There needs to be a sign down like one section from there that says "...I converted".

It really is the best.

I've got a 6 game plan 4 row right behind the Penguin net. I'm really considering making a big "Hail Satan" sign for those games.

I wouldnt make a Free Candy sign. we gotta let that one die.

Hail Satan isnt bad.

how about something on the lines of:
Pens ticket: $77
One Beer: $8.25
Our savior and our satan on the same line: Priceless.

Whoever sits next to the visitors entrance needs to the place a sign next to the doorway looking like this.

hah, not bad. or make a huge sign saying SWISS CHEESE and pointing at the goalie if you sit behind the net. aka has alot of holes in it. that might be to hard for people to understand though.
