Contest : Joe Bendik Meme

I’m going to go out on a limb here, and suggest that Toronto FC could very well be one of the most memeable teams in all of sport.  The dysfunction, the quoteables, the invisible cheque-signings, Mista – the list goes on and on.

In the Pulitzer-esque writing of the South Bar Report, I remember distinctly very late in the game, after Bendik made a very good save, a look, or glare – well it was something.  Screen shotted and meme’d, I put this up.

This face.

This face.

Do you think you can do better?  Perfect.  Take a swing and either post your result in the comments below, on twitter, instagram, tinder – just let us know where to find it.

Here’s a blank canvas to get you started : 600×338 (medium) or 1600×900 (large/essay).

Pro tip : Typical meme font is called “Impact” and there’s a thin black line (called a “stroke”, if you fancy) around it to make it pop.  Not necessary, just in case you want to know.

Slightly less pro tip : You can get meme generators for your smart phone.  Then you can make these instead of paying attention in that meeting / surgery / running the drills for defenders.

Deadline is August 24th, and we’ll announce the winner in the podcast following the deadline.
