Happy Tuesday folks. Normally I would try to find something logo or jersey related to talk about, but something amazing has been happening all day....
The San Antonio Rampage of the AHL have been "hosting" a Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament on Twitter with 12 other AHL teams (Milwaukee Admirals, Rockford IceHogs, Lake Erie Monsters, Hartford Wolf Pack, OKC Barons, Rochester Americans, Binghamton Senators, Grand Rapids Griffins, Utica Comets, Portland Pirates, the new Adirondack Flames, and the Albany Devils)
The tournament was seeded last night and started earlier this morning and has been a riot to follow. Those of you who use Twitter somewhat regularly should already know that hockey teams/players have some of the most entertaining Twitter feeds out of any sport. Which, after spending my entire life around athletes of all kinds, isn't surprising at all. I love how weird hockey players and those affiliated with the sport are. It adds a charm to the sport that you don't get with the others.
NHL Twitter feeds have been extremely entertaining these past couple seasons with the LA Kings and Columbus Blue Jackets maybe having two of the best. The Kings' Twitter feed covers their games so nonchalantly, I've seen the Hawks score on the Kings and the Kings' Twitter would simply tweet, "Red team scores".
The tournament wrapped up at 3:30 EST with a final between Utica and Hartford. Hopefully stuff like this continues throughout the summer and regular season. The Flames suggested a new game after getting knocked out of the tourney.....

throwback logo as opposed to the current logo. This would be a great Winter Classic jersey by the way, not sure if that's what this was intended to be.
