Game time, bitches!

We're told that we shouldn't swear on here, particularly in a post. Apparently we are getting "bigger traffic now" and there are "kids reading." We have gotten "two emails" to this effect in the past month and a half so we are going to try and tone it down for the kiddies.

Now I suspect that the picture above won't be appropriate for kids... Er, nor will the exclamatory swear word in the title. Hmm. Don't read that if you are under 12, kids. Or look at the picture. Is 12 an acceptable cut-off age? When your ol' pal Wanye was 12 years old, we had already had five wonderful years of marriage under our belt. When we were 12, Wanye Gretz V was already six years old himself and working on starting a family of his own. So yes, 12-year-olds can read a swear word and laugh heartily at the picture of the teacher above.

How wonderful is the season opener going to be tonight?

  1. Better than Budweiser bringing out a 75 pack of Bud Light in stores everywhere and calling it "The Widow Maker"
  2. Better than every single pre-season game in NHL history
  3. Better than a million-dollar knife fight between Robin Brownlee and Jason Gregor—which would be pretty awesome too.

The last Oilers' game was April 2. We don't know how many days ago that was but we remember thinking "What the hell are we going to talk about all summer?" Well thanks to all of the Citizens of the Nation we have watched the summer fly by. Two massive trades, an ownership change of the franchise, three new writers and Kevin Lowe being fired without being fired but somehow still being in charge meant a busy summer.

Go Oilers!

Final thought

Post some chatter if you're watching the game. We are either going to the River Cree to watch a beer league game of a buddy—who assured us "If you come with me to my game we can go watch the Oilers game afterwards. We get a team deal on beer"—or watch it at OilersNation World HQ.

Wanye: I'd slice and dice Gregor for 50 bucks, although I got more for doing it on his show last Friday when we debated my picking the Oilers to finish 9th.

I predict the game will end sometime this evening. That's about as finite as I wish to project. Plus, I don't wanna have people contacting me for winning lottery numbers and the password to Wanye's gmail account. With great powers comes great responsibility. Peter Parker's uncle told me that...but I knew he was gonna say that.

No, this actually happened and I have witnesses. It was at the racetrack casino after a hockey game. Misunderstandings occured, he got mad, I got mad he pulled out the "my son is Gene Principe" card.

Principe is the type of guy that rises up in this media circus of pro sports. Nice, reasonably smart and extremely unlikely to do anything but throw up softballs to players and execs.
