GDB 37: No threats on horizon

Wanye
January 03 2009 06:12PM

When we got our tickets to tonight's game we told ourselves "we will witness a win at RX1 this weekend come hell or high water." And we guarantee that this will be the case. See, we went to our first Oil Kings game last night and witnessesd what (we remember to be) a 4-1 win. And it was during this game that it became apparent that the Oil Kings staff are working their collective butts off to provide an entertaining evening for their fans.

Prize giveaways, a mascot and an awesome funky fresh dance break once a period where everyone gets to stand up and Vogue their hearts out. That's some gangster shiz. Oh and did we mention baby races?

BABY RACES

It was pretty much as it sounds. 8 babies on a special baby racing track on the ice during the first intermission. The winner got a $500 Baby Gift Certificate or something from ATB. Probably the best display of athleticism we have seen at RX1 since the beer vendor fell down three steps in our section in 2007 and didn't spill a drop of beer (true story.) Unlike falling beer vendor 2007, Baby Races 2008 were rigged - given half a chance your ol' pal Wanye could have destroyed the baby that eventually crawled his way to victory.

WHY ARE YOU WASTING MY TIME WITH THIS?

You may be asking yourself "why on Earth is Wanye telling me about all of this garbage?" For a simple reason Nation. The Oil Kings charged people like $3.46 per ticket and they tried their damndest to put on a good show. Skating, shooting, scoring, cheering, dancing, and racing babies. What a night. The Oil are going to be charging hundreds of dollars more tonight and we bet that a lack of racing babies won't be the only thing different between the two games.

What else should we talk about? Hemsky being half dead? The fact that the best player on the team was destroyed by a clown from Nashville and he wasn't beat within an inch of his life? The fact that little T up there would be viewed as more of a threat than the pop gun offense that the Oil are throwing over the boards these days? The fact that the Oil could potentially win tonight but even that won't give us enough confidence to scream fearless playoff predictions at the bar later?

The fact that we will still be standing and cheering against all hope because we have rocks in our head?

Want to waste your time with any of that? 

Two teams.

One owner.

One is still trying to entertain the troops during a ball freezing January. The other?

Not so much.

For those who haven't gone to an Oil king game it's true. Oil Kings put on a great show and parking is included in your ticket. You can park 50 feet from the door and there are hot chicks throwing out t-shirts etc. Oiler games have Mark Shultz...nuf said! PLEASE Oilers entertain us tonite so we can slip on the ice on our way to climb back on the bandwagon.

With his low centre of gravity he is a career 60% on the dot. His shot blocking abilities are second to none as he appears to have 2:1 height to width ratio.

I'm not looking forward to watching this game. Hopefully Modano comes down with a bad case of food poisoning.

Eberle just SCORED

great blog wayne

I have really enjoyed every oil kings game I have been too. tickets are reasonably priced and you get something for free almost every game just for showing up to watch them. water bottles, mini sticks, mullet wigs ( yes there was mullet night earlier in the season) chuck a puck, where hundreds of orange foam pucks rain down on center ice for a chance at $250 bucks is always a fan fav.

@ tired of boring hockey: Having Ice girls would offend the family values of Rexall Sports - I mean Patrick LaForge - go to Anaheim, Dallas any American rink and the Bud Light girls are part of the action - and at Rexall you get farm boys in blue pants - if Modano has a pre game meal at Rexall courtesy of Northlands - then food poisoning is 50 - 50.

Oilers please call Independent Artists (780.433.2500) for Ice Girls when they are not working at Eden, Diamonds or Showgirls..... or get the girl that went European in PreSaason Northlands banned for 6 months for showing her mammaries - her suspension is almost up to lead the team - entertain you Wanye??? - what do you think this a DEMOCRACY - pay your ticket - shut up and sit in the corner - no fun zone - the next time you get drunk in Rexall - ask for a cop to assist you to the beer stand for more light beer.

Hopefully the game @ 8 is half the game this Can/Russia game is.

Going to games stinks, people get mad at you if make noise, cheer etc. My section is all people that have hade tickets since Christ was a Cowboy - they just sit on their hands. The people who take tickets from other ticket holders make J-A's of themselves, but for the most part going to a game is BORING.

The worst part is the Oilers are boring to watch. Nothing inspires reading and self-improvement quite like an Oiler regular season, the last 40 of last year being the exception.

@ hockeysmack:

They are boring, at least if there was other entertainmnet at the games it wouldn't feel like a prison cell rape after leaving Rexall.

Get that trade happening now, we have another smallish forward who should be on this team next year in Eberle.

This is going to be tough going from watching young men who play thier hearts out to win for thier country and watching young men who play because they signed a 4 year deal worth 50 billion dollars + bonuses. Not to mention The Mark and Marc Show...WTF
