GDB 29: A plea to Santa

Wanye
December 16 2008 03:10PM

In honor of tonight’s game against the Blackhawks we are going to go out on a limb here and do something we don’t ordinarily do: give you Jason Gregor’s Visa number. 

No wait. It’s the holidays. We won’t do that.

What we will do is ask Santa for a different present this year. The past seven Christmases it has been the same thing over and over again: Deliver us Natalie Portman with a memory wiped clean of any other life than being Mrs. Wanye Gretz.

But this year it is a different matter altogether. This year Santa -- in your infinite wisdom as the God of Presents -– bring us four more winsies prior to the Christmas Break will you?

Yes Santa, we know and tremble before your might and power. We know we have angered you by not getting the NationStore up before Christmas thus disabling your ability to bring T-shirts to all the Citizens of the Nation who have demanded them under the tree. Still, we feel that we have behaved this year and really only need the following to be delivered for our lives to be complete:

Dec 16: Blackhawks - WIN Dec 17: Canucks - WIN Dec 19: Ducks - WIN Dec 22: Coyotes - WIN

If you can find this in your magic sack (that’s what she said) the Oil could go into Xmas in 18-12-2. Wouldn’t that be some a Christmas Miracle?

Oh and...

Don’t forget about our new contest either Nation.

Taking pictures of the game day experience all around the Nation and winning a $75 Hudson’s Gift Certificate for the best pictures of the month.

We had a bunch of entries yesterday from locations as far flung as Arizona and Okotoks, AB. Okotoks, Nation! A city so environmentally friendly that they recycle everything including their Christmas wishes! Reading the Nation! Will wonders ever cease?

Now normally most of our photos that end up on the internet involve ‘boudoir photography’ of the lowest quality. But tonight, we are going to be in attendance at Rexall tonight and we have two goals:

  1. Run a few dozen beers through us
  2. Take a picture of something funny

Enjoy your sobriety in the press box Mr. Gregor and Mr. Brownlee. We will think of you during the second period when we are on our 7th beer and are trying to remember the name of the Oilers second round draft pick in 1995.

Amateurs.

Hmmmm. More than a day off, playing at home, Garon between the pipes . . . I don’t know, Nation. It’s like that really muscular girl that keeps checking you out from the far side of the club; it’s possible that tonight ends with unrestrained howls of joyous abandon, but something just doesn’t smell quite right. 2-1 Hawks, regulation. . . . And the retro jerseys too; kiss of death.

Yeah, she's definitely a guy. Crap.

So it appears to be 6-1. Am I getting this right? I mean, seriously.... really? I think I'm going to sell (actually pay someone to take...) my tickets to the game on Friday. I don't think it will be worth the drive down 63 for this. Dammit.

So I don't get it. Roloson is hot. Why not run him for a while? Every Calgary game on TV I hear "Kipper has played the last 14 straight games".

Another one. Oh god. The horror.

Wait a minute.... Chicago seems to have s very similar team to us player vs. player right? Except.... something seems different. But what? hey, didn't they fire their coach earlier this year and then start playing good? I seem to recall that.

That doesn't make any sense. Who in their right mind would fire a coach to make their team better? No no. It's all about getting half a new team every season. That will fix the problem!

As in.... They were born on the same planet... Cus that's about all the similarities these two have now. Remember when the Oilers got that extra point to let Chicago into the top five drafting position? And then they got the first pick and picked Kane? remmeber that. That was awesome.

To be fair though, TSN has made him insanely soft. Except for that one time when he said, about Martin St. Louis, "Put him in the god damn shootout!"

But if there is some kind of god out there, he would put Torts behind the Oilers bench in the near future, that's fer shure.
