Back in late January, we took up the cause of finding a sponsor for the Vancouver Wellwoods, PITB’s official women’s road hockey team. For years, the Wellwoods had been playing in baby blue t-shirts with iron-on decals, but they had decided it was time for them to graduate to snazzier duds. They needed jerseys, and since jerseys cost money, they needed a sponsor willing to pony up the scratch.
Thanks entirely to our ability to
needlessly inject ourselves into the discussion for personal gain crowdsource, the Wellwoods were able to find not one, but two sponsors: BC Diabetes, an organization “dedicated to providing excellence in diabetes care, research and education to all British Columbians,” and Ken Johnson, a kind young man with no business to speak of, save the business of finding his soulmate.
In exchange for our help, the Wellwoods promised that they would dedicate the left shoulder patch to this blog. That’s the awesomeness you see above.
But frankly, I’m way more amused by the contents of the right shoulder.
In exchange for subsidizing the jersey costs, both BC Diabetes and Ken Johnson were given a patch on the left shoulder. Since BC Diabetes has a logo, the Wellwoods went with that.
But Ken Johnson has no such logo. Rather, he simply requested the patch read “Ask me about Ken Johnson”, and, when the ladies were asked, that he be recommended as a suitable life partner.
It’s the best plan ever. If he finds love this way, he deserves a gold medal.
The phrase “Ask me about Ken Johnson” now becomes to PITB as “Who is John Galt?” is to Atlas Shrugged.
Thanks to BC Diabetes, Ken Johnson, for their help, and thanks to the Wellwoods for being the coolest official women’s road hockey team we’ve ever had.Tags: ask me about ken johnson, PITB is famous, Road Hockey, Vancouver Wellwoods
