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.

@ Travis Dakin: Tonite boys I will take full responsibility...just a thought though maybe playing 6 on 5 would be just as effective and roli's save percentage would'nt take a hit

Might I just say that this is truely awesome. MARK MY WORDS... this game will be the one that mattered. The one we all look back on in the future and say, "that was the last straw!"

Things are going to change over the break. Big things are going to happen.

Yeah but their GM isn't BFF's with the coach, so there was no feelings hurt.

Just give MacT his office job now please.

Lets just pull Rolli, give them an even 10, and call it a night.

The GAA's are through the floor right now for both guys tonight. And our PK is pretty much non existent. I guess it was a REALLY good idea giving Bucky the assistant coach job over Rob Daum.

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.

Yeah that something not right is that fact the mucular girl is dude. When you get home you feel like you did after leaving this game... like you just had 8" of love punishing your sphincter.

Psychologically speaking, they should probably take this tape and label it...

Not a chance any of the Oilers will ever look at it again.

Does this qualify as a "step back?" Back below the traditional measure of .500...Any Comments? Are we beginning to run out of season to turn this around? Do we have a goog long road trip coming up? I think this team could use some time on the road to bond. AAAAAAA! Blog overloading! I need beer! And FAST!

Well. I'd say the Oil executed their gameplan with great accuracy...they were able to keep Toews off the scoresheet.

And sweet...the post game presser is supposedly streaming online on the Oil site.
