GDB 62: Oilers gone Wild

sick_oilers

Brownlee’s sick as a dog, I’m sick as a dog, and it seems like the Oil are sick as dogs — they’re certainly playing that way. Meanwhile, Wanye’s internet access has vanished and it took me way too long to update the scores and standings on the site. Things havent’t been kosher, my darling Nationeers.

Wouldn’t it be something else if the Oilers actually went wild against Minnesota? Yes. How likely is it? I don’t know. I’m still holding out hope that we’re all stuck in some sort of cruel nightmare, and when we wake up there’ll be a parade on Jasper Ave involving a certain cup with a certain name be hoisted by the players from a certain hockey team. You know, ours.

So here’s what I want to see tonight: I want to see our boys actually bodycheck the opposition. I want to see decent play resulting in many shots on net, which will logically result in several goals more than the Wild. I want to see a WIN. Is that too much to ask? I don’t think so. Willis has suggested that, at least on paper, the Oilers aren’t a god-awful team. So let’s actually win this one, yeah?

Pass the Neo-Citron.

    If Hall of Famer Rod is retiring I have heard that Clifford Boostrom may be available. If you have not heard him, he is great. Very similar to the Buffalo announcer. Give him a listen.

    Sabers score in ooooovvvvveeeeerrrrtyyyme. Ok announcer but Rick Jennerette is the biggest hommer in the biz.

    Im still a big fan of Just a game. It's funny and doesnt focus on just hockey, hockey, hockey. I just wish Team 1260 had a nightshow, I hate that ESPN shyte. You wanna talk repetitive, during the summer these blowhards talked about the Farve saga non-freaking-stop. You should give the Team a listen after the Oilers games, Corey Graham is doing a pretty good job (and he is allowed to have an opinion!)

    @ Pokiee Reddik:

    Give it a rest dude. As DeepOil stated the Ched and Team have very different demos. BTW the under 40 demo also tends to come to this site.
    I also don't know anyone who would rather listen to Hall. No lie. It's one thing to go at JG's opinion but its pretty f**ing rude to go after his job performance or start false rumours. I'm not trying to dissuade you from posting here, I just think it's pretty cool how the columnists on ON interact w/ thier readers.

    RONALD – Why do you think they are paying Morley Scott to stay home and have contracted Stauffer to do color – and play by play when Rod is ill or attending family hockey functions ?

    Katz is tied to a local talent in his head – hoping that will waive his wand and allow the TEAM personnel to think with their own mind while holding the property and have a great game day presentation – to which Ched is unable to provide due to their political syndicated shows via CORUS.

    The team is considering a jump to the fox sports network for more hockey access as ESPN have jumped their rates via the purchase from the rightholders FAN590 – a late night show needs commitment from the program director, on air talent (corey is not committed), sponsors via the show host – where the host buys the time from THE TEAM / ASTRAL such as Stauffer in the past and Just A Game and Pipeline Show. These details are not a concern right now making the Team very LITE in the PM.

    This is an opportunity for OILER NATION to have it's own radio show – without the cuss words – really – if Jonathon, Bingofuel, and Wanye want to take this to the next level – start off EXACTLY the Stauffer did with TOTAL HOCKEY….. otherwise we can listen to this ESPN crap for eternity….. maybe someone other than Gregor from the Team raads this column – blog.
