GDB5: The Hawks and the Oil

October 22 2008 03:48PM

Well it’s game time tonight, and wouldn’t you know it the Chicago Blackhawks have turned up looking for a fight. And like any good Irish bare-knuckle boxer circa 1933 the Oilers are ready to go 50 rounds. You want something to cry about, Patrick Kane? The Oil will give you something to cry about you big baby. Oilers 5, Hawks 1 There we said it. Leave your predictions here for all of history to marvel at. We will see you back on this internet frequency at 7pm MST for an OilersNation Justice League Summit Meeting™. Sexily yours, Wanye Gretz IV

PPV Broadcast notes:

1. Rob Brown's voice is like nails on chalkboard.

2. HD looks good...much better than the "dubbed vhs" look of last year.

3. My main man G.P. is in the groove. :/

4. The camera dude on the main broadcast cam appears to be drunk...the puck's over HERE!

5. It's expensive.

6. It's better with beer.

BTW, for those of you not catching the 'Hawks broadcast, Olczyk's a much better play-by-play guy than he was a coach.

He's the guy instituting the "salary grid", and he got promoted to Assistant to the General Manager this summer.

I'd feel better if I paid for a Hawks PPV game. I think I'll tell myself that.
