Montreal Canadiens backup sports tribute to soccer star
InGoal’s Scott Slingsby captured these images of Montreal’s Peter Budaj’s new helmet – a tribute to Argentine soccer star Lionel Messi who plays for FC Bercelona. As always of course, Ned Flanders finds his spot on the mask, this time heading a soccer ball tying in with the Messi theme creatively.
As with all the Budaj masks that InGoal has presented before, this one was created by his personal artist, Dave Gunnarsson of daveart.com. These include this season’s “Three Storms” helmet, as well as Colorado masks with Monsters, Inc. and racing legend Valentino Rossi. Flanders as our readers will know well, is Budaj’s nickname, earned for his strong Christian faith.
