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.

Their delicious, delicious beers.

The Oilers losing 6-0 to Nashville on Friday night is not helping the powder keg of emotion that is the OilersNation right now. Twitter reads terribly with demands for everyone that collects a cheque from Kay-Z being immediately dismissed. The comments section here at the site stretches to infinity as people vent their rage and frustration with a team that looks to be writing off another year of NHL hockey.
