Drew Doughty gets his own internet meme
It's amazing what happens on the Internet when you aren't paying attention.
Saturday, I decided to unplug and take a monster bike ride. Fresh off a Kings victory in Game 2, my ass was flat, thanks to three days of blogging on my couch (plus three glorious hours at The Lazy Dog Cafe.)
So, I slapped on my headset and jammed off toward the beach. When I got back home 3 hours later, an internet meme was born.
Over on the HockeysFuture board, someone had posted this Getty Images picture of Drew Doughty after a scuffle late in the game. I used a different version of it from Rueters for my Game Two Across The Aisle feature. Rinkrat over at LetsGoKings picked up on it and started a similar thread.
That's when hell broke loose.
The artist madmen on LGK started cranking out Doughty images, leaving many with sore sides and sprayed Dr. Pepper on their monitors. It's amazing what a little Photoshop knowledge and some spare time can yield. Here's a sample of my favorites.
Full Disclosure: I love jumping on Kings-based memes like this. I helped usher in an Abe Vigoda meme in the Mid-Aughts. So, I quickly set to work and created two (so far). It's refreshing to see fellow hockey geeks can bring the funny on an off-day.
