GDB 51: Has the world gone crazy?

Well, loyal Nation readers, things don’t feel so hot here in Oil City, or really anywhere on this spinning ball of rock. Our boys in copper and blue play St Louis tonight. But they do so without Lubomir Visnovsky, who’s been placed on the IR list.

Meanwhile, Dustin Penner won’t complete (or even start) any checks, Sheldon Souray’s upset because he can’t find a decent hair jelly to maintain his quaff, Daryl Katz astonishingly owns the Cracker Cats now, and nerds are dressing up like Klingons and robbing the good citizens of the Federation down in the US.

What’s next? Zebras and Lions hugging? Fans NOT demanding MacT’s head on a platter? Brownlee cracking a smile? Amber McCormick finally agreeing to go on a date with me? My gods, what a terrifying world this place is becoming! Someone hit me in the face with a shovel, please.

So even though things are dire in the Nation right now, I’m going to predict a hard-fought Oilers win tonight. Sure, I know sweet tweet about hockey compared to Wanye Gretz and Robin Brownlee, but I know what my guts tell me: “Eat something, bingofuel. Something greasy. Good. Now type ‘Oilers will win tonight 3-2’.”

Oilers will win tonight 3-2.

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.

Why? Because you can just feel a horrendous turn over coming up that leads to an odd man rush?

And let's just establish this right now - if the Oilers miss the playoffs and any of Gilbert/Horcoff are out for some time along with Visnovsky, this organization will play injuries.

But the real issue is that they didn't build themselves any cushion when they could have - so I'm not going to buy it this summer, if they trot it out and things transpire as I've hypothesized.

@ Poo Czar:

That's a two-year program, right? Good stuff.

I'm going for my third year in a couple of weeks here, and it's another example of how it might be better if I lived in Edmonton - then I could go to NAIT instead of Northern Lights College.

Of course, they're a little more desperate for people here too, so I strongly suspect I might not like the pay in Edmonton.

What the h*ll is going on? The internet radio feed is gone and I have no idea what's going on in the game - is anybody else having troubles?

Please don't make me rely on the NHL site for updates. Few fates would be more cruel...
