ATTN J JACOBS, we have a very limited number of stenciled letters

New York Islanders rally

The puzzling craftsmanship of this Islanders sign gets even more puzzling if you take a moment to examine the colorful piece of crap. 

You'll notice the stenciled 'A', 'T', 'N', 'C', 'G', 'E', and 'S' were executed flawlessly, which brings us to asking what we think might become the burning question of the summer: Why weren't they applied throughout the rest of the sign?  Did some of the stenciled letters break during the design application stage and thus, break this wonderful Long Islander's spirit? 

Much like the Islanders under Wang's reign, the sign appeared to begin with a organized plan in mind, but then everything quickly went to shit.

    I’m not sure who J. Jacobs is or why they’re protesting him, but it looks to me like those stencils make for nice, bold, ~broad~ letters, and he had to quit using them so he wouldn’t run out of space on the sign.

    It does make his sign look a mite less than professional, but it’s not exactly a sign of mental degredation.

    A large part of this atonement needs to be an acceptance that you can’t carve your place in the sun without taking some risks.

    Thank you for the inspirational spirit of your message from down under; however, clearly you overlook that the guy had little or no solid plan and chance from the start. Don’t give him any credit, for he may as well have been drunk when he started as was likely.

    There is taking some required risks to get ahead, and then there is going ahead with no plan stupidly as if rolling the dice.

    Thus there is no inspiration here because clearly the guy was an irreparable douchebag from the start.

    Okay now you carry on with those inspiring words.
