OilersNation signs Jason 'The Truth' Gregor

September 12 2008 03:01PM

The funny thing about the internet is that you never know who’s reading your site. One day it’s the Pope, the next day it’s the Pope’s brother Gary. Hopefully it’s never the legal department of the NHL right? Ha ha ha...

*nervous cough*

Anyways, we were contacted awhile back by one Jason Gregor who basically told us, “I like your site, but other than Brownlee everyone there is garbage.” Now bear in mind that this was before Lowetide and Willis joined—so basically he was dissing yours truly.

Easily the most photographed member of the Edmonton sports media community, his words stung. But as a direct descendant of the 15th Archduke of Austria-Hungary, we don’t care much about what anyone thinks. Still, it did lead to a conversation and handing Gregor off to the ONPDD (OilersNation Personnel Development Department™) here at the OilersNation World Headquarters™.

From what we’ve been told, approximately 300 meetings ensued and one of the tensest negotiations of all time was conducted. We had one thing working for us: we are on the internet and we told Gregor we receive approximately 30 million hits per day.

*nervous cough*

Gregor had one thing working for him: being the host of the biggest sports radio show in Edmonton.

So it was basically a tie.

*nervous cough*

Gregor is in Atlantic City for the HDNet Fights but luckily sent us this before our self imposed 3 PM deadline:

I started reading this site when it first started and let’s be honest, it was junk. But it has come a long way since and I think that this site is the future. This isn't some blog - it's a hockey website and these guys have a lot more coming soon. I am very happy to be joining the Nation team and I’m looking forward to bringing lots of hockey coverage to the table in the years to come. I’m also looking forward to putting this idiot “Wanye Gretz” in his place. I can tell that Brownlee has had his hands full here holding back all of the rumours and speculation that go around on the internet but the cavalry has now arrived. I am going to start off the season on Sunday when I will be covering the Oilers Rookie Game for the Nation. Until then, it’s fight night here in Atlantic City. DING DING! —Gregor

And this won't be radio Jason Gregor either. This is unedited and non CRTC regulated internet Gregor.

The team is now complete.

Love, Baron Wanye von Gretz VIII, MD

—Wanye Gretz was in charge of the Nation from 230-3 PM today and it didn't crash. He be reached at wanyegretz@gmail.com.

Unfortunately, with both Matt Greene and Marty Reasoner playing for the opposition (lousy opposition, but still), their comedic stylings fall outside the self-imposed boundaries of ON.

...Ok, this is pretty sweet,but boys I gotta be honest. A lot of the appeal for this site (as a guy who's been checking this site since it was just a coming soon icon) is that it's entertaining, not just informative.

with all of the 'legitimate' talent you boys are bringing in, PLEASE don't get too serious.

Sincerely,

Charlie and Dr. Randy Gregg

Sure, I look forward to reading Gregor on here. Unless, of course he is writing about MMA. Please, please, please Jason, I really think you are knowledgeable about hockey, football, etc. but in MMA you really show your lack of what is going on in the cage. Otherwise, I love ya bud.

Oilman- you know what's really gross? Just picture Brian Hall wrist deep in a full order of baby backs...every time I hear those commercials it makes me want to projectile vomit on my radio.

Sean: Oilers vs Heartless Flames on Sunday in Camrose, Bears on Monday, Canucks on Tuesday in Camrose.

Great pick-up, now we need a new website with some padded bios of the personalties including fish wrap writer, local radio diva, oilfield instrument bitch, radio sales guy, everyday female fan with hair fetish, & decendant of Austrian Royalty/foot doctor.

Gregor? meh, Since he took over the 3 till 6 I'm, listening to less and less 1260. I really hope he gets a full time MMA announcing gig soon and just goes away.

Mad Mod,

At some point you need to get over your man crush of Stauffer. I'd listened to his show for years and heard your emails praising everything he did. I guess you don't like Gregor because he doesn't beat the Oilers into our head when there is nothing to talk about. I never listened to him often at night due to my kids, but I think his show is great. I'm looking forward to seeing what he brings here and on the TEAM.

Bill, not that I have a man crush on Bob. I have had a long time dislike for Gregor, I would have been happier if 1260 had put anyone but JG in the 3-6 slot. But they didn't and that's their option. Mine is not to listen.
