GDB 44: Party Time

Wanye
January 16 2009 08:50AM

Oh we hate Fridays.The misery that comes as you count down your final eight hours of the work week. The terrible knowledge that the weekend is upon us and that there will be two whole days of not having to work before the joy of Monday returns. Someone may try and sell you beer in the next 48 hours for heavens sakes. We must have the strength to say, “No thanks friend. I don’t need beer to enjoy yourself.”

*pregnant pause*

If you are watching the game tonight do your ol’ pal Wanye a favour. If you are near Edmonton -- come to Hudsons on Bourbon Street. Click on the Game Day Party ad on the main page and print off the evite too. We were originally going to use the money to support the rebel troops closing in on the Capital City and General Montoya. His bloody regime must be brought to an end by any means necessary.

Then it was helpfully pointed out to us that we don’t actually know any rebel troops and that General Montoya is simply someone we made up in our head. Apparently imaginary political causes can’t accept real money as donations. Instead it was politely pointed out  that the Nation is currently supporting Kids with Cancer and that for every evite returned the people at Hudsons will donate $2. Decent.

For those of you who won’t be in attendance...

We will pour a little on the ground for the homies that can’t be with us. Top of the list: Willis. If he lived in Edmonton -- or Alberta for that matter -- we would load up the Nation Van with duct tape, a black hood and some Twizzlers, in case we got hungry on the way. Then we would cruise over Chez Willis, kindly negotiate with Mrs. Willis, then strong-arm Jonathan out of the house and roughly load him into the van. Then we would go to the party.

Those of you who won’t be in attendance -- our hearts and thoughts are with you. We generally get a little emotional watching Ryan Smyth playing for any team that doesn't rhyme with Snoilers. We may get a little extra emotional after a few beers tonight, especially if Smyth scores. We will need emotional support to get us through the evening and we appreciate all the help we can get. We will also be selling off the tickets to the Oilers rematch against the Wild on Jan 30. These tickets were donated by Buck75 to the cause. Personally we wouldn't part with Oilers tickets if someone had our entire family hostage.

But we don't negotiate with terrorists.

That's our policy.

Thoughts of last night

When Sheldon Souray positively ended the life of Weller we can’t help but think fondly of all the Souray haters that didn’t give the guy a moment’s peace on the airwaves and on the Nation in the off-season. Still think that he was a bad signing? Other than the odd giveaway here and there he has basically been everything that the Oil wanted when they brought him in. Plus he is a rockstar that make the ladies go “OOOOOOOWHEEEEE!”

And when is the last time Liam Reddox did that? Huh? Never.

That’s when.

i think souray has been the most consistent player (after hemsky of course)this season, and we he fights he beats up the otherplayer( just ask weller ans ohlund) what if we could clone souray.or maybe he should beat up the entire locker room, so they can start playing like him.....

i'm ready to start the "Souray for Captain" drive

he's been the complete package not sure how he fits in the "rift in the locker room" picture, but when he speaks, people listen (again, ask Weller or Ohlund)

Moreau's been decent, when he hasnt been injured, but he's in no way taken the place of Smith.

I'm concerned. Your inability to provide two squirts of piss is clear sign of a prostate issue. May I suggest a visit to your friendly neighboorghood proctologist? It's cause I care.

I know that. I was referring to Willis' pic at the end of his articles. But kudos to Tencer, he's covering a team that was in its glory days when he was a sparkle in his daddy's eye.

Have fun tonight boys..and Amber. Unfortunately, I live 503kms south of Bourbon street, and apparently people get sick on Friday nights too. It would have been fun to drink all you girls under the table.

Tell you the truth, Id be kinda scared to meet the genious minds behind this site... Isnt humour usually used by the weird/ugly/fat kids as a way to fit in and get people to like them? It would be like reading the book AFTER watching the movie, ruins the imagination of it all. All you can picture is that panzy Matt Damon, when it should have been a 30 year-old Bob Barker in a neon leotard playing the character Jason Bourne.

You all will be missed at the JL meeting. (Well tomorrow morning, when I re-read it and laugh my ass off. I tried following along and posting one game but I kept forgetting to hit the effing "refresh" button.)

What we would actually do is do that tag team thing where Wanye grabs like forearm and sling shots me into the flying drop kick. Then we would lift his limp carcass into a tag team power bomb through a table. Wanye would deliver the people's elbow and I will follow up with a devastating figure 4.

So, I'm kind of an idiot... basically what happened?

And There is a certain amount of jelousy that goes against Tencer from some. Being that he is only 23 years old and scored a pretty sweet job with the Oilers with basically no experience. Also the fact that people forget the fact that his job is actually to put a positive spin on the Oil while providing a forum for the fans to discuss opinions. But there is as certain pompousness to his attitude in that he thinks he is the be all and end all of Oiler knowledge (get him drunk at a party and see) and the fact that he acts like an arogant prick when someone calls him on his BS. But that comes from still being a kid. He is getting better though.

Oilers divisional record the past few years:

This year...5-6-1 2007/2008...13-16-3 2006/2007...11-20-1 2005/2006...15-15-2

Overall since lockout 44-57-6...Not good enough. Good news for the OIlers is they only have 24 NW games this year instead of 32.

Let's call a spade a spade here - I gave the tix to Wanye to do with as he pleased at the Game Day Party tonight. He chose to auction them off for the cause of the evenings festivities.

Props to Wanye for turning a gesture into something that will benefit some kids!

We'll see how my Friday night is going, maybe I will be the only one on the GBD thread tonight...

@ Jason Gregor:

Thanks for the numbers.

I've always had a hard time figuring out the awful divisional record. During the 06 playoff run, MacT's strength (oxymoron?) seemed to be that he was pretty good at adapting his systems to be successful against teams over the course of a series - i.e. Detroit and San Jose. Makes me wonder why he can't figure it out over an 8, or thankfully now 6, game series over the course of a season. It's not like there have ever been any legitimate powerhouse teams in the NW that just have the Oil outgunned.

Please tell me I won't have to look at that pic as I refresh all day. I won't be able to make it to Hudson's tonight, but I will be reading the JL, although I'm not sure how good it will be with most of the regular posters not around. You guys crack me up with your stuff. Curious to the "picture maker" why put up a photo of a competitor of two of your main writers. I don't see why you would promote that. When Gregor was doing nights, his post game show killed Tencer's, now, Corey Graham just isn't as brash or opinionated. I miss having Gregor being frank after a game. I only can listen from 5-6 on my way home now...Any chance Gregor you will do post game again? Either way, I propose changing the photo before tonight...hell I'll take an Ian Lapierre photo instead...

Anyways great work to the guys who post on the JL..I read it during most games and it is some funny stuff keep it up.. Michael

I caught Gregor subbing a couple of weeks ago after a game when I dropped in on the Team's website.

Towards midnight it got pretty funny and Gregor was kicking the crap out of every second drunk caller. Quite frankly, it was one of the funniest things I've ever heard on radio.

Still, I felt kinda bad Gregor had to deal with that much crap. Things went downhill pretty fast after about 10:30 or so. You know it's getting bad when the radio host is daring callers to come down to the station to sort things out. But I guess that's why they get the big bucks.
