ECHL team invites opponents to forfeit after Lil B blessing

Brampton Beast

Lil B's blessing of the Brampton Beast is giving the club a sudden boost of confidence.

The Montreal Canadiens' ECHL affiliate is all but planning the parade after receiving a blessing from the "BasedGod," inviting its opponents to forfeit now that the rapper notorious for placing curses on athletes has spared the organization.

"The 'blessing' may very well mean a Kelly Cup Championship is in the cards for the Beast for the upcoming 2016-17 season," the team wrote in a release Tuesday.

"The Beast would like to offer our ECHL competitors the opportunity to forfeit their scheduled contests against the Beast organization in an effort (to) get a head start on the 2017-18 ECHL season."

The release includes a form opponents can submit to formally admit defeat:

The Lil B/Beast connection began when the team was followed on Twitter by the rapper, whose social media brand almost exclusively involves putting hexes on - or sparing - the likes of Kevin Durant, James Harden, the Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto FC.

This could always backfire and become bulletin-board material for the Beast's rivals, but it's a bold move for a club that is clearly savoring the moment.
