GDB 49: Super Bowl Bait and Switch

Oilers fans will fall into one of three camps on Sunday, Feb 1, 2008.

Camp One

People who say "There's a football game today?" as they happily bundle themselves into their cars and head to RX1 to watch the Oilers play the Predators at noon on the very same Sunday as Superbowl 43.

Camp Two

People who say "There's an Oilers game today?" as they happily sit on their couch watching hour 498 of Super Bowl pre-game coverage documenting the early trials and tribulations of Pittsburgh Tight End Sean McHugh in excruciating detail.

Camp Three

Easy going fans who will switch back and forth between the two games, watching the Oilers if they are winning and tuning in to catch the end of the fourth quarter.

Whatever camp you are party to we salute you. We sort of fall into Camp three except that we love Super Bowl parties so very much. By the time you read this, in fact, we are most likely already on our way to Wobbly Town due to the Bud Light Express.

In any event, it sucks that the Oilers play before the Super Bowl. Unless they beat the Predators of course.

Then it was the greatest idea that was ever hatched.

Superbowl 43 Prediction: We will win the annual Coin Toss bet against our boy Smigerowski. Believe that.

Hello Nation, I need your help.

My site feed Oilers Jambalaya has been filling up other peoples "links to this post" at the bottom of their blogs. Eg: check out Oil Droppings Blog.

http://oildroppings.blogspot.com/2009/01/to-be-continued.html

My question: How do I limit it to one without taking up all this space on people blogs?

Does anyone know how to turn down my site feed so it stops filling up other peoples "links to this post".

I get 15 or so filling up space. I only need one. Or does anyone know why it is happening? It is showing stuff back to December. Not sure what I am talking about? Go to Oil Droppings and click on the "To be continues". Scroll to bottom of post. See? I have a lot of them there. Any idea's?

@ The Towel Boy: He's had this post ready for a year

@ Smokin' Ray: It is your sidebar RSS feeds that are causing this. A couple of things that might work:

1- Put rel="nofollow" into the rss links 2- Keep all your RSS feeds on their own page and not in your sidebar 3- Use a different site to read RSS feeds. I like Google Reader myself. 4- Disable automatic link notification

You'll have to play around and see if any of those get you success. I don't know if anyone really understands the xmlrpc / linkback tech.

I'm in camp 4. The camp that'll watch the Oilers game first. Realizing the game ends about 2 hours before the Super Bowl (is kickoff really going to be before 7pm EST, after all the pageantry?), I'll then either further amp myself up after the Oilers win, picking up fights with random passers-by; or take out my frustrations of a loss (blaming it on the afternoon game), by picking up fights with random passers-by, to get myself ready for Super Bowl whatever-the-hell it is.

GOILERS!

Camp3.

Back to Goala though...is anyone else ruined now after hearing that? Now everytime I hear Lola I will always sing Goala in my head. It reminds me of when I worked at a crap hole job cleaning tour busses in Banff. One of the guys I worked with was in bad shape as his body was twisted due to a disease I can't remember. The guy had a great personality and was fun to work with but it hurt to watch the guy walk. One of the other guys I worked with saddled up next to me one day and said "hey you know the song "Cripple Creek"?" I says yeah. He says "yeah, well you always think of buddy whenever you hear that song now". Dammit if that prick wasn't right! Same thing for Goala/Lola. And now Private Eyes! Damn you Oilers!!

Now with 2 hours sleep I am getting my drinkface on to watch the Oil belittle the preds then a wobbly walk over to a buddies house for his Super Bowl party were last year I ended up passed out under the kitchen table due to too many tequila shots.....Camp 5 is an up hill climb of drunkness!!!

Wanye my name is OilersNinja and I am an acholic!!

Camp 4 sounds like a party. I'll happily start on the Lucky Lager at home and then have the wife drive my ass over to buddy's to watch the superbowl.

People in the other camps should probably learn to do some math...or how to tell time. Tricky sh!t I know, but if Liam Reddox can make it to the top line on an NHL team you can do it!

@ baggedmilk: Beer is a good substitute for milk, as it gets you drunk while you eat regardless of taste.

Now if you had no beer, Mr Clean multi surface is your next best choice
