Use what works, folks

Going into this hockey-hounding campaign, I was willing to deviate from my paint pen of choice to give Sharpie's oil-based paint pens a chance. But after getting this watery, though legible, autograph from New Jersey coach Jacques Lemaire, I quickly switched to my trusty DecoColor Liquid Silver paint pen.

Though I properly primed the Sharpie pen -- shaking it upside down and using scribble to get the ink flowing -- I was less than happy with the outcome. Though the ink works fine on paper, I won't be using them for pucks.

It's a shame, too, as the Sharpie paint pens were a little cheaper than the DecoColor paint pens. It's like the old saying goes -- you get what you pay for.
