It's that time again Calgary. You managed to get ahead of the Mighty Oil by a measly two goals last Battle of Alberta. Fortunately the good guys dug deep and managed to pump eight straight past your goaltending duo. Eight. Straight. Goals.
Let the soundtrack be the sequel to Gangham Style which dropped today. We have a few things to say.

We missed a draft update on account of being lazily on vacation but best belive the biweekly prize will still go out and another one is awarded in this edition of the draft update. Plus some faint praise for Brooks Laich who has graced the NHL with his appearance after a lengthy spell on the injured reserve list with an unconfirmed injury*
Oh and we will also give a tantalizing glimpse of the playoff draft game that is currently being built.

This is a story about three young lads who go travelling to Amsterdam in search of optimistic adventure. Two are Canadian, one is an Australian who is now the newest resident of Edmonton and Wanye Manor. We meet up with an ex-pat Canadian living in Amsterdam who sobers us up more than anything that has ever happened before in the history of time.
It ain't a story about looking cool - that's for sure. Read on at your own risk.

Shoutout to the Oil for winning again. Well played fellows.
One of the scheduled highlights of the 2013 backpacking tour was the tickets to an Ajax game in Amsterdam. This is one of the sights to see apparently as Ajax have qualified for the Champions League three years in a row by winning the Dutch league and are well on their way again holding down the top spot.
On this chilly Sunday afternoon they were facing the 8th place NEC. And we were facing down their teeny tiny secondary ticket market, mega steep aisles, people smoking all willy nilly INSIDE the arena and their beers.
Their delicious, delicious beers.

Every now and again I decide to get the hell out of dodge and see what the rest of the world has to offer. And because I have been basically using the Nation as a diary for the past 5 years, I'll post articles about what we see and what we do and more specifically what we drink.
If you want to read an article about the Edmonton Oilers Hockey squadron this ain't it. If you want to take a break from the roller coaster of emotions and learn about Icelandic mega babes read on after the jump. Spoiler alert: you really do.
