The offseason is now in full swing. The Cup has been won, the beards shaved, the players re-signed. Aside from the continuing adventures of the Stanley Cup, there’s not a whole lot happening in the hockey world. Until now! Presenting a new series in which we will finally understand the true nature of the world champion 2017-18 Washington Capitals through the prism of stupid popular culture. I’m calling it Not Up For Debate because everyone everywhere will agree that these are the universal consensus picks.
In this episode: What if the Caps were on Middle-Earth during the events told in Red Book of Westmarch?
Very serious, very driven, but with a subtle, impish sense of humor.
Low-key: the greatest horse in the cinematic legendarium universe.
Prove yourself, Madison, and maybe we’ll upgrade you to Madril, ranger of Ithilien.
Everyone doubts him, but he’s a slayer.
Could be trouble if we don’t pay attention.
btw there shouldn’t be tomatoes in middle earth if it’s a post-diluvian/pre-colombian exchange setting thank you goodbye
His spirit will find its way to the halls of your fathers
at dawn of the fifth game look to the third line
You probably thought Lars Ellers was Shadowfax, but you’re wrong, it’s Djoos.
The most glam rock elf in Middle-Earth.
He knew too much.
He gave all for his team.
You thought he’d be your savior?
This feels mean, but it’s not. Hill-trolls have great legs.
I would also accept Gwaihir.
Captain of the blue line guard.
He did a submariner hip-check on Frodo.
He would have followed Ovi to the end.
My brother, my captain, my king.
Speaks truth to power.
Loyal and true.
He’s too nice; it doesn’t make sense.
Hands off that shiny shirt.
Though the series is called Not Up For Debate, I’m leaving the comments open. So you can compliment me. For the very good picks. Appreciate the congrats.
