RoyDazzlerThere are pictures of Derek Roy on the internet. Just type his name into Google. Go ahead. I’ll wait.

See? Now, throw in a word like “drunk” or “shirtless.” Go on. I’ll be right here.

That is something, isn’t it? Well, now that you’ve seen those, you think you’ve seen it all, but you would be incorrect.

The RoyDazzler nickname has been floating around for a bit. Scott Michalak (@ScottyMCSS on Twitter) talks about its origin and provides a stunning animated GIF over at Buffalo Sabres Nation. When Royzie decided to wake up from his long winter’s nap during yesterday’s 6-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, it inspired me to combine Derek’s roster photo with the Marvel Comics disco superhero, Dazzler. One photoshop lead to six, and next thing you know you got a slideshow on your hands. Feast your eyes upon this.

If you’re not a fan of surviving, fear not. There’s an alternate version with a different soundtrack.

And if you haven’t had enough, you can head over to Facebook and join the “Derek Roy has bedazzled his way into my heart” group.

UPDATE: Now with more Bee Gees!

UPDATE: This photo was just begging to be bedazzled.

    @NovaYankee I think he’d flourish elsewhere. But, he’s been sparkling a lot lately!
