GDB 43: Wild thing

Wanye
January 15 2009 04:19PM

We had to laugh. We had four emails and texts today from buddies who asked us what is wrong with the Nation.

"Oh is it down?" we asked. "Our shared server has been crashing lately." To our suprise this wasn't the case at all.

"No, no the site is up." our buddy replied. "It's just nothing has been written on it and it's 3pm. What's the deal? How am I supposed to waste time at work?"

That's rich.

For the first eight months that the Nation was around we were proud if we wrote every day. Then we started getting the team together and there are some days we have five separate articles. Even if the team sucks people still love their Oilers. Now we have people who actually want to read something on a more regular schedule. We shall attempt to meet your terrorist demands fellas. Our apologies.

Real News

Oilers and Wild play tonight. As unhappy as some of us may be in the Nation there is one thing we can hang our hat on. No matter how many mediocre games are delivered stone cold to our door by the Oilers Crap Pizza Corporation, we can all agree that we share in some common good fortune as fans of The Edmonton Oilers Hockey Club:

At least we aren't paying a fall-down like Gaborik that kind of dough for that kind of performance.

He's how talented?

How often does he get injured?

What are some of his shady "injuries?"

You offered him how much money? For how many years? And he turned it down?

Ugh.

Go Oil.

It just dawned on Mact, if I put 3 speedy defensively smart players together I might have a checking line that can be a scoring threat.

*baggedmilk sits down to write letter to the Oilers*

Dear Oilers,

I know things get complicated in this crazy world, and I know that things aren't going the way we planned. When the second period starts you will be on a power play. The point of such an event is to actually get some shots and score a goal.

Love,

-baggedmilk...

Dear Mr. MacTavish, Hi my name is Travis and I have been a fan of the Edmonton Oilers since March 10, 1980 so I have seen a lot of things over the years. I've been watching the game tonight and I have made some observations. You see, It seems that I've been saying all year that Gagner and Cole should play together. It took you 35 games to figure it out that they were good together and after some mind boggling line combos you finally figured it out. Here's the thing... If they are good together against 5 opposing players, wouldn't it seem logical that they would be even better against 4 players?

For all of those who are worried about Principe doing the broadcast......... At least its not Pierre McGuire. Most people dont know that both his legs were lost during the broadcast of the Blue Jackets game. 3 hours on his knees led to a lose of circulation which led to amputation... Poor little midget
