The Gary Bettman Portraits in Heroism Contest

Over at Yahoo!'s Puck Daddy, we're holding an art contest for anyone and everyone to submit their best "drawings, paintings, Photoshops and any other electronically-submitted visual media that depicts Gary Bettman in a moment of true valor and heroism."

Rules: Original artwork only, and we'll publish many but not all of the entries. The Yahoo! Sports rules of profanity and PG-13 content apply. We're looking for originality, creativity, wit and whatever puts our beloved commissioner in the most valiant light. Deadline for submissions is Friday, August 1 at noon EDT. E-mail contest entries (.jpegs preferred) to puckdaddyblog@yahoo.com.

My partner Greg Wyshynski and myself will be the judges. What can you win?

• An adult small Versus hockey jersey with "Versus 08" on the back, plus a special Stanley Cup playoffs poster.
• A spiffy Versus hat and a 2008 Stanley Cup commemorative puck.
• From the Puck Daddy prize closet: Monopoly, MY NHL edition.

Yes, exciting I know!

Now, I can't win obviously, but I figured I'd make one with my WONDERFUL Photoshopping abilities. (I know, yikes!).

Here's Commissioner Bettman in his cameo role in the movie Gladiator:
