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.
