GDB XX: Lunch time on the road

I don't know about you guys, but these Sunday afternoon PPV games don't provide a very good incentive for me to get out of bed. That's why I'm writing this in my full-body jammies with sewn-on feet from my bedroom. I'm also eating an entire ham in bed, but that's a typical Sunday morning tradtion that really has nothing to do with hockey or PPV games.

Today's game against the Thrashers marks 4 of a 5 games on this road trip, a trip in which the Oilers haven't fared too well. We've lost two out of three so far, and all because some cowboys are ropping cattle and drinking $8 beers inside RX1. Add to that the fact the Wanye has apparently flown the coup — he asked me to drive him to the airport yesterday after he packed himself a small hobo sack and didn't say where he was going — and things haven't been what you'd call "peachy" here in OilersNation.

But don't despair, the Oilers have a few things going for them:

  1. Pat Quinn is getting to the point where he must be scaring the shit out of the players with his rage at their poor play. I'd like to think that this is going to inspire the boys into playing, you know, hockey.
  2. As Brownlee indicated yesterday, Big Sex, Horcoff and Nilsson skated yesterday morning, and there's a chance they'll play today.
  3. Kovalchuk's foot is injured, and although he's been stopping pucks, I can see us making this work to our advantage with some net-crashing (though I certainly don't condone this).

Sure, these aren't game-makers, but I need some hope — something to hold onto. And the Oil? They need a win. Or six. Before Pat Quinn's had explodes.

This won't be an easy win for the boys in copper and blue — but they'll take the "W" 4-3. And they'll do it for Fernando Pisani.

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.

I think Western Canadian/Pacific Northwest accents are virtually the same, for whatever that's worth.

What's it worth? Nothing.

Finally, an opponent we can beat...

Wanye has flown to the Czech Republic to BEG 83's parents to tell him to SHOOOOOOOOOT.

Like a good republican you can handle facts. 83 is #3 in shots despite missing 3 games. Well done!

You really notice our accent when listening to an American talk show on the radio like Howard Stern or Bubba the Love Sponge. A bunch of Americans sitting around talking and then they take a call from Canada and it jumps out at you just like they joke in the movies. Eh... Yes b'y.

You know its funny, I think my "Eh" becomes more prominant in my speech in the absence of others using it.

How many ***** PPV games are we going to have this year?! Haven't we had like 5 of them already?

This team has barely been worth watching for free on Sportsnet/TSN/CBC.

Wow that Atlanta coach is pretty radical in his thinking. Activating Kovalchuk on the PP is going to leave a glaring hole in net.

Aaaannnnd we're down already. Nice. God damn Zach Bogosian. I like that kid. Fudge.

Anyway I was going to say, I had a buddy from Chicago come up here for a few weeks in September, and I was like "okay if I say Eh he's going to bust my balls about it, so I can't say it". And I ended up saying it 10 times as much as I normally do. Psyched myself out.

Actually, I was just looking for a cute excuse for him to be in that time zone. I've never once yelled "shoot" at a game in my life. Nor do I waste my life looking up pedantic statistics. You are correct on that score, sir! I'm just here for fun, Dawg. Chill.
