2008 NHL Loser Challenge Post-Season Awards

Thanks to everyone for coming out to our award ceremony. It is nice to see everyone dressed up in their finest after a long, hard season. Enjoy the show.

The following awards were handed out in a ceremony before this broadcast.

2008 Overtime Central NHL Loser Challenge Awards

Best Team Name

The Bourne Loser (2008)
A subtle combination of an old comic strip, an action series and an imdb.com movie listing, this team name is like a decadent desert with many layers I can’t get enough of. I still laugh every time I see it.
I accept this award on behalf of Jim, who was… uhum… unable to be with us tonight.

That said, US expansion would have been a lot less competitively imbalanced if the dollar had been on-par back then. #
