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.

The best ahole tearing I had, I was playing Senoir A provincails and we lost like that. Our coach came in and just said you guys suck! And walked out, we paid the next practice and it woke us up. Take that as my advise to Mact

@ jeanshorts: According to Torts, you must gently caress the fragile inner soul of each individual and give them positive reassurance that what they did tonite was not their fault. Then you tear them new vajaja's cuz that's how they play

Bad.

BOUNCES?

That was the reason.

Kids....this is why it is very important that you wear a helmet when you play. See this guy, who is making a bunch of money being paid by his best friend...well he didn't wear a helmet.

And Son....he's a complete moron.

That is hilarious, maybe because I pictured something similar, only Moreau simotaniously laying the blocks to his wife and beating his kids. After kicking his dog into the neighbors backyard

I'm pretty sure if MacT could have got away with "sh*t happens", he would have said it.

I'm sayin' it now. Something will happen real soon. There's a few issues that have to be dealt with right away.

@ David S:

Nothing will happen. We always hope something will happen, yet things remain the same.

Oilers mantra:

If things don't change they stay the same.

That should have been dealt with last month, and realistically won't be dealt with until January.

a small part of me does feel sorry for Mac-t. He was an oiler that was liked and came back to coach and now his time here is like living in hell and everyone hates him...wouldn't want to be in his shoes right now

I know it would've had little affect on the outcome but can someone tell me what exactly Liam Reddox brings to the 4th line that Strudwick doesn't? The 4th line on Saturday was very effective and tonite....not so much.
