Sweet Jordan Eberle's flaxen mane - the distant future shall soon be upon us! Still think its 1974? Peep this video of Quadrocopters that have been programmed to play table tennis with one another. As you watch these things pinging back and forth like a robotic Forrest Gump, ask yourself if we really aren't on the verge of a Brave New World.
Soon enough Terminator and Robocop will be for sale in your local Best Buy and we will all be complaining about it." A new Terminator has been made? I just bought the old Terminator at Christmas and it was twice the price!"
That's the future for you we suppose. Speaking of pondering the distant future now, the Downtown Arena debate is closing in on a key deadline and needs all our help.

Citizen Alpha handed us the reins to convert the Team 1260 radiola transmissions into pod cast ready files. It took us only four days to figure out how to do this, minus a break last night to watch the Oilers get smoked by the Kings at Rexall Place.
Next week it shouldn't take as long.*
*That's what she said.

What the Edmonton Oilers might do in the future or what they could've accomplished this season had an already thin and raw roster not been riddled by injuries is up to debate. That this edition of the Oilers will set several franchise records for ineptitude and futility is not.

A kid from Paris--the one in France--who owns a Spanish sirname is the most sought after free agent in the game today.

While Dustin Penner makes his return to Rexall Place tonight, the legendary Rod Phillips will say goodnight one final time and hopefully it won't be another painful game for Oiler fans to watch.The Hall of Fame voice of the Oilers will call his 3,542nd game tonight, and while the return of Penner doesn't match the emotion of a Gretzky, Messier, Coffey, Kurri, Fuhr, Anderson, Weight, Smyth, Pronger or even Comrie return it still has an interesting story line.
