Objects on a parallel course give us an interesting example of unification and divergence. On the one hand, they are travelling along the same path, moving towards a common destination, and they never diverge from that path. On the other hand, they never converge; that is to say that despite all the similarities of their path they remain as far apart from each other at the end of their course as they did at the beginning.
What on Earth am I talking about here?

It took three years, but we finally have Stu (Magnificent Bastard) MacGregor's first official bust at the draft table.

Over the years I've learned that when it comes to signing free agents the Edmonton Oilers can fool you. Sometimes the big money guys are here for a good time (not a long time) and the secondary moderns are the ones follow.

One of the most frequent requests I get via Twitter and email is for data on clutch scoring. There’s a common belief that some players pad their totals in meaningless games, while others switch off when the game is out of reach (for good or ill).
Given the wide belief in this sort of thing, and the requests I’ve received, I put together data on when individual Oilers players scored in 2010-11.

"@WanyeGretz Lead Hands also wants to know how/when he can get that oodle noodle GC, that is if it actually exists #rypunzel @marco6160" -@SHMcSteeley on twitter around 1:10 PM MST
You know we get lipped off around a lot around here. "Wanye post the radio show faster." "Wanye, post the contest winners faster." "Wanye get back from your date with my sister so you can take my mom out to the parking lot for a jolly rogering."
Cry, cry, cry.
