Fifteen months ago, I gave the "#shapcrew" the mic at this blog, as @Mariomontega and @Vitamin_v12 - the original purveyors of shap - wrote a mission statement of sorts, explaining why Vancouver Canucks headcoach Alain Vigneault is a milt. Since then, shap has gone mainstream and the #shapcrew has expanded. At this point at least 30 individuals with varying levels of intelligence (from very smart to mind-numbling stupid), self-identify as "#shappers."

Last night, all of the group's momentum climaxed with a hilarious Roberto Luongo endorsement and a Twitter-based awards show - the second annual Shappy's - that was nothing short of rivetting.

Enjoy!
