Much of Canada has basic knowledge about the Leafs, Canucks, and even the Oilers to a certain extent. The Sens? Past knowing about Alfie, Spezza and Karlsson, many of the Senators aren't well known by people outside of the Ottawa-Gatineau region.
Now that we've got sole possession of CBC's broadcasts (and we'll hopefully get Dean Brown calling some of our games) the rest of Canada is going to be able to hear, and watch a lot more about Senators hockey over the coming few days, or hopefully, weeks.
I propose we make things a little bit easier for the rest of Canada, by creating a simple guide:
"How to Cheer for the Senators"
Now, I'm sure there are a few of these floating around the interwebs already, but creating a basic fun/funny rundown of our players by members of the S7S community would be a great way to get the word out to the rest of the nation about who the Sens are, and why we think they are so great. And it wouldn't hurt to have something with the S7S mark on it floating around the web! More publicity is good publicity, right?
I would love to take the time to write all of this on my own, but I procrastinate on exams enough as it is. I think it'd also be a great way to get all the funny memes/ nicknames/ and sayings we've got on here out to the rest of the community!
Title the post with the real name of the player you want to write about, and then the nickname/ info to know about him can be in the body of the comment. I'll do a first one as an example.
This is really just a springboard for everyone else to take on the idea I guess. If it catches, Great! If not, no worries.
GO SENS GO!!!
