LATE PLAYOFF DRAFT BAD, RUSH STILL GOOD

Wanye
April 16 2010 12:26PM

Yes, the playoffs have already begun and the internet is awash of teams looking "to avoid being down 2-0 in their series." Yes, the best time to have launched a playoff draft would have been on Tuesday. But in true OilersNation "always a step behind but trying reeeeeeally reaally hard" fashion we present our OilersNation playoff draft sponsored by The Pint. So consider the fact that there has already been a game played our present to you.

And besides, the Playoff Draft is always a good time. The prizes? Massive. Number of entries in this our third draft season? Immense. The quality of team names we all have to think of to make our fellow Nations laugh heartily when they read the leaderboard? Amazing. And besides there are much crazier things happening than a playoff draft launching two days late. Jay-Z is suing Bo Sox slugger David Ortiz for heavens sake! Can things get any worse?

Sign up here for the Playoff Draft and try and beat our team the "Lindsay Lohan Death Watch Society."

Good luck to you and please accept our sincere apologies for the draft being so late starting. Remember, make sure you pick Milan Michalek of the Ottawa Senators. We don't know why, but we just have a feeling that this guy is going to have a hell of a playoffs this year.

RUSH STILL GOOD

Despite a loss last week against the Colorado Mammoth, the Edmonton Rush continue in their quest tonight to be "Edmonton's first playoff bound sports team since 1957." For an added bonus the Rush are playing the Calgary Roughnecks tonight, who must win to make the playoffs. Lose and they will go home losers, as everyone from Calgary already knows they are with the Flames recently missing the post season and Calgary being named "Most densely populated loser City" in a recent nation wide poll.

If we knew any of the Rush players and were able to interview someone we are sure they would say something like "as tonight's game is the final regular season match, we want to make sure we set the tone for the playoffs." Then we would roll our eyes and think "oh really? That's a surprising thing to say. Just hit us with some more of the usual platitudes we expect from athletes and we will wrap this interview up and get on with our life."

Seeing our mind wander, the imaginary Rush player would take exception to this veiled disrespectitude and would immediately smash us over the back with his lacrosse stick dealy before powerbombing us into the ground. That's how lacrosse players roll Nation, particularly the Edmonton Rush who are filled with swagger and confidence at the moment.

We just got off the phone with the Rush begging pitifully for more tickets to give away for tonight's game. Amazingly they have agreed to hook us up for a second game in a row. Therefore first 3 people to hit us up on the Wanye Mail at wanyegretz@gmail.com will be going to tonight's game in style - with tickets waiting at the roll call.

These games are seriously a good time and we have found ourselves caught up in the Rush Fever for several weeks now. This is infinitely more pleasurable than the time we caught scarlet fever and nearly a third of our fellow seventeenth century New England colonists died.

Wayne,

You are correct, the Rush games are a blast. Me and my boys have went to the last three and it's been fun. I hate Calgary, to tonight should be even better, plus eight of the dancers are hot, the other four should be cut, but at least they have cheerleaders.

A playoff draft after most of the first-round series have started? Derrrrrrrrrrrrrr, I'll take the Kings in four games over Vancouver . . . This joint is Pud Pull City.

And did we even get around to publishing the results of the regular season draft yet? Knuckleheads.

Papa Brownlee smashed you good Wanye, ooooooohhhh snap. The only draft I'm worried about screwing up is the "We have already decided on Seguin" draft coming up after Hall wins the Memorial Cup whilst standing on his head eating a banana recanting 'I love Edmonton, I love Edmonton'" draft.

How can what happen? Messenger foxes? I don't know how they're trained exactly. I think they're raised from pups. But I don't really know, it's Wanye's department.

As for my shoes, I have my mom tie them once and then I leave them tied up and just slide my feet right in.

I'm watching the SJ game, I have a question.

Why would the NHL not put sensors in the puck? Why do we need all these camera angles trying to see if the puck crosses the line? A sensor in the puck would tell everyone where the puck is. If it's across the line the red light goes off. Simple. It makes no sense.

@ Wanye

Remember that time (last week) where you emailed me to tell me I won Rush tickets... you remember that?

That was awesome...

...Except the part where you emailed me at 5:00 for a 7:00 game... because since I hadn't heard back from you the previous day, I went ahead and bought tix and was sitting at Original Joe's in Sherwood Park by 5:00 for a pre-game meal. It was quite awesome to get home after the game only to find out that I had won free tix.

Oh wells.... it was a good time. Having played minor hockey with Jimmy Quinlan for a couple years (over a decade ago), its quite cool watching him in Rexall.
