Super (Rich) Seguin

I'm not sure who is on the social media team for the Dallas Stars, but it might be time to give them a ton of credit for some rather awesome stuff they do. Recently, they posted a pretty incredible announcement that felt nothing like an announcement until you got to the end. I don't know how much work went into this animation, but let's just say that the brains behind this latest animation should probably get a nomination from the Academy of Motion Pictures for an animated short!

Here's the animated announcement that they posted last week.
That's pretty awesome, right? The whole Super Mario Bros. animation is pretty solid to start with, but to drop the eight-year, $78.8 million news at the end is pure genius. Add in the Jim Nill-esque character and the Victor E. Green-esque character, and this animation deserves some sort of award if the Oscars don't come calling.

I'm off to umpire on a rather chilly evening, so take care of yourselves tonight. As of right now, Tyler Seguin is off the market, the Stars have their number-one centerman for the next eight years, and all is right in Dallas, it seems. Not bad at all, Stars social media team. Not bad at all.

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
