Gregor’s GDB: TSN won’t know what hit it

I used to love watching OTR. Well, love is kind of a strong word. I actually mean that I enjoyed watching it. The only reason I don’t anymore is because of a little device called the Playstation Three. Now, if Landsberg was a Vault-dwelling Capital-wasteland-roaming nuclear-holocaust survivor... THAT I would watch.

Why am I mentioned this? Well, because of the following email I received from none other than Jason Gregor, the TEAM 1260 vault-dweller who’s roaming Canada’s cultural Capital-wasteland. That’s right, our boy is fighting zombies in Toronto. Here’s what he told me:

“Bingofuel, your writing sucks. You know sweet eff ay about hockey and even less about the ladies. [ed note: most of what you see in this email is heresay.] But peep this, fella: I’m going to be on Off the Record today. Tell citizens of the Nation to tune in, and follow the conversation.”

Deed: done. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go fire laser beams at Super Mutants.

Love,

bongofool

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.

@ Jack "slacking off at work" Bauer: I'm pretty sure Gregor will tell you something like: "I don't about how YOU think I look... It's what the LADIES think that matter."

I hope Lansberg asks an offside question and Gregor slaps him in the mouth.

Or rips his shirt off like Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Tell Gregor to tell Lansberg to stop styling his hair like he's 17. It's just plain creepy.

Also, tell Gregor to tell Lansberg to tell Gino Redda (Sp?) to grow back the stash. I've never really respected anything he's had to say since he went clean-shaven.

Last but not least; tell Gregor to tell Dutch we miss him and his Sportsnight days where he coined all sorts of classics such as "Starting the lawn-mower". God am I old...

@ The Towel Boy: Oops my mistake. From your description I just though about the most backward, incestual place I knew and Calgary sprang to mind. No offense intended to you and your kin Sir. Haha.

Speaking of backwardness and incest I hear the NYR are thinking about bringing Avery back. Break out the Banjos Broadway!!

I'm loving the old Dutch sayings. Sportsnight was pretty much the only place to go for Oil highlights back in the day. I remember impatiently sitting though many an episode of ITV news at 11 eagerly awaiting Dutchies take on all things Oil.

I remember I even made a bet with a teacher in grade 10 about Dutch. He hated him and said he wouldn't be on the air in 6 Months and I said he would be. (This was in the late 80s). For the record, that cheapskate never paid me.

All of a sudden I feel like a gap tooth senior sitting on a deck reminising of the good ol' days....God am I old!

Yeah, it really takes a set of stones to tar and feather a guy verbally when you know he isnt gonna be around to rip you a new one. You sirs, definitely put the "ass" in class.

Gregor really didn't get much time to talk. It kinda looked like had just wiped lipstick off of his mouth seconds before they went to air. Also, he was pretty subdued. I was expecting a "C'mon man!" when they were talking about fighting. Lansberg kept going to the pretty boy lacrosse player. Two words about Lansberg: Turd Tamper. I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'...Not that there's anything wrong with that.

You guys who bash Gregor just sound like jealous losers. My old lady knows three different hot chicks that he has dated/taken down an d I've seen them. I will say he has my respect just because of that. I liked his line about Smith and he handles the puck like a grenade. Classic! Either way good to see a western guy on the show.
