Bikini Beach: Jose Theodore's New Florida Panthers Mask

Theo1 Jose Theodore genuinely seems excited to be here in South Florida.

Not only is the veteran goalie getting a fresh chance with the Panthers, but he seems ready to embrace the whole tropical lifestyle. 

Take a look at these pictures of his new Florida-themed mask.

Theo2On one side of the mask is a feline wearing a bikini.

On the other side is another adult cat (the one that looks a little like Joe Camel) wearing sunglasses. Next to him is a surprised looking kitten.

I was told the three cats on the mask represent the Theodore clan: Jose, wife Stephanie and daughter Romy.

Theo3 Theodore also has various Florida Panthers logos painted on the mask.

On the back, he has his nickname, a cross and a pretty detailed Florida license tag -- complete with the words 'Sunshine State' on the bottom.

Theo4 The tag reads 'LX 60' to represent his jersey number with the Panthers. 

On a related note, Scott Clemmensen says he likes the masks he wore last season and doesn't plan on getting new ones -- although he said he may
break down and do something later in the season. 

Clemm Like Theodore, Clemmensen's mask has a taste of the tropics as well. Clemmensen, who is a huge Jimmy Buffett fan, has a parrot on the back of both masks to show his Parrot Head support to Margaritaville.

Pretty cool mask of Theo. Any reason why he ditched the gargoyles he always had on his masks?

Theo's chin piece is just awesome. But Clemmer's mask is the second best in franchise history behind Beezer's.

the letters on the back of the mask, R and C (although the C is difficult to see in that picture) are for his children, Romy and Chace, who passed away in 2009.

I love José's new mask. As much as I loved his former masks, this deviation from his norm is just too cool. And the way he represents his family, but in a Panther-related way...awesome. Well done, José. Well done. And well done to Dave Gunnarsson, who I'm pretty sure was the artist.
