Monday morning meow meow

Wanye
November 03 2008 11:25AM

There’s a game coming up against the Penguins on Nov 6. We’re excited because:

  1. We only get to see Eastern Conference teams every seven years thanks to the schedule makers in NYC;
  2. We’re always excited; and,
  3. Because of all that nonsense with the pensblog, a win would mean getting to chirp the hell out of them. A loss, the inevitable backlash and name calling. Either way, good times.

You remember Pensblog right? The dirt squirrels who started telling off Brownlee and Gregor and were later engaged by jeanshortsandbaggedmilk at Wolf 359? We didn't really know what to do about the matter. It wasn't really our fight, but we do ever so love picking on people. At the same time we are trying to be on our best behaviour these days. You know, for the children.

So your ol' pal Wanye—the Minister of Defence of the OilersNation—decided to email these pensblog people personally and said basically the following:

"Yeah, yeah everyone started telling each other off and it’s all so clever. Tell you what: why don't we place a bet on the game? If the Pens beat the Oilers we will personally buy two of your site's T-shirts and you can give them away as a gift from the OilersNation. Oilers win—you can have the honour of paying for the first two NationGear shirts—coming in Dec 2008."

Basically we called them out. But we did it in a gentlemanly fashion via e-mail, not in a classy post like this. "Put a little walk in that talk, son. Or you can keep running your mouth all over the net. You pick."

We tried to lay a wager, even though the Oil hadn't been playing well enough to beat the Stockton Thunder let alone an actual NHL team.

Why would we do it? To separate the men from the boys, we suppose. Just like when one of your buddies starts running his mouth about how many goals Ryan Smyth will score vs Joffrey Lupul a few seasons back. You bet him $50 on the matter because you are a MAN.*

So all you pensblog fans and the writers themselves can know this. Sure "anyone can start a blog" and any jackass can go around calling people names and being so cute. But when push came to shove and someone asked you to put a teeny tiny little bit of money where your mouth is what do we get?

Dead silence.

So when the Oil beat the Pens on Thursday we can celebrate in the OilersNation with a clear conscience. If they should happen to lose (unlikely) all the people that stood with their mighty pensblog can revel in the fact that they are associated with complete... Well...

Meow meow pensblog. You know what you are.

*True story, you still owe me that money Foote.

Nice - I would like to put my name on some Nation gear as well. Those guys at the pensblog should take that bet, after all they would only have to spend like $10 yankee buck to get couple of shirts with exchange now...but they would probably have to skip their interest only mortgage payment to do so.

Oilers nation shirts, I gotta get me one, just in time for Christmas right?

You know, Oil kills Penguins. Nasty stuff for them...

Buck75, Highway 13! man do I have good memories of that road. Wetaskiwin to Camrose to Killam ... ahh, the road trips, fun times fellow nation member.

Incidentally, how do we prove we are a member of ON? I faithfully read every blog but rarely comment...

I will second that this is a true story. Wanye told me about it and much to my dismay the babies at thepensblog didn't not want any of it. Embarrassing really.

I tried to start blogwars but they're not really that clever at thepensblog and it was far too easy. Burns about Mounties and our health care system were really lame and over done.

I'd prefer if our healthcare was actually delivered by Mounties. On horseback.

But, lambs, Derek has accepted the bet! It's now, officially, on. Thursday night will determine the best team in the NHL: The Oil or the Pens. Well, the best team in the NHL according to me. And let's face it, whatever the outcome, I'll always back the Oil.

It's on D-rock!

the pensblog is a joke... what an amateurish, crap-looking site.

i highly doubt they can boast the writing staff like the nation has got. even their 'funny' images are below par for a homebrew blog.

i really hope the oil win against the pens, though i doubt this very much as the team will probably coast the next couple of games on the heels of their recent victories.

In a cringe-worthy segue from one of the most solid human beings in America to a blogwar being battled between dudes on opposites sides of the continent, we have some interesting news. We know the Blogger/MSM stuff was good for a day, then it's whatev. But now if you want to get up a little more for the Oilers game on Thursday, here's your chance. OILERSNATION invited us to partake in a wager. The loser of Thursday's game has to buy two shirts from the other blog's "store." What's better is that those shirts will then be handed out to people from the winning blog. So if the Pens win, OILERS NATION will buy two shirts from us. They'll give them to us to give away. We will try to come up with a contest that isn't a joke. This pretty much will be the culmination of the saga with OILERS NATION. Until the Pens trade Jordan Staal to Edmonton for Grant Fuhr.

Sounds like sour grapes from a bunch of jerk-offs who close their site down because of smack talk.

I would take that trade - Cocoa for JStaal is a a steal. We will throw in the goat too.
