The end of an era... A Gaylord era

When we heard that the Predators had sold the naming rights to the Sommet Centre, we were so disappointed. The only real cool thing about the Predators—other than the fact they throw catfish on the ice during a game every now and again—has gone.What happened to tradition? What happened to the purity of the game? What happened to the Gaylord Entertainment Center?? Yes, lambs, that's where the Preds used to call home. Can’t you see D Ville Koistinen calling home? “Sorry, wife, I will be late returning to our shared family home. I will be returning late from Gaylord.”

Can’t you just imagine Coach Barry Trotz inspiring the troops before a game? “When you're in the Gaylord, I want to see sweat. I want to see male muscles starined to the max in the Gaylord. I want to see 20 grown men who can barely stand from fatigue, showering together in the Gaylord!!”

Call us juvenile, but the Sommet Centre somehow doesn’t bring the same thunder.

Bingofuel is the handsome cyborg who pulls all the levers behind the curtains of the OilersNation. When he isn't running the site, he's plugged into a wall socket, recharging. Or Brownlee and Wanye are playing "keep away" with him. He gets little to no respect.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, seriously, who names a hockey arena “Gaylord”? Don’t you know all the mouthbreathers are just going to go to the games, sit in their seats, and titter like Beavis and Butthead?

"Hehhehehehehh… He said *gay*."

Hmmm... Guess that's why they renamed it.

I have a cousin who saw a game there. He said the locals used to call it the hom-o-dome.
