This is Dick Pole - an actual pitcher for the Bo Sox in the 1970s.
Hopefully you are having a good laugh at ol' Dickie Pole's expense right now because there is other - less funny - news to pass along. Ales Hemsky and Jordan Eberle are both bowing out of the All Star Game on account of injuries.

Words can't explain the awesomeness of this photo. The blackhole of hair surrounding an absolulely ridiculous tattoo, with hiked up camouflage boxers, the best belt buckle I've seen in years and a laissez-faire grin illustrate how important it is to be comfortable with who we are.

I'm not sure what Wanye is on about with his references to a kick-ass addition to Oilersnation, but I can tell you my vote is that we open a new bureau in the hockey-mad city of Scottsdale*. I will staff it.

OilersNation.com launched November 27, 2007. In the nearly 3 years and two months since that auspicious day, we have seen only a handful of games that meant anything - anything at all. You'd have to look to folk like Mr. Machete here to find someone on a longer dry spell than the Oil - and at least this guy has some size and is able to intimidate.

Hockey rumors have become big business on the internet. Some yahoo in Philadelphia makes gobs of coin (apparently) by tapping into that small segment of the population that has been assigned to make certain the words of P. T. Barnum live on (those words being "there's a sucker born every minute,") However, when the big boys start talking about dealing Hemsky and Penner, I believe where there's smoke there's fire.
