Sometimes we get so busy reading this site we forget that we are technically a writer on here. Not a connected writer like Gregor, or a smart writer like Willis, or able to see into the future like Brownlee, not really responsible for anything writer like Bingofuel, more like johnny-on-the-spot-you-can’t-fire-us-cause-we-invented-this-bitch-type-of-a-writer with a gigantic wang and a mind like a steel trap.
Today though? Not so much. We were reviewing the comments on Willis’ article and came across the lineup for tonight’s game:
Kotalik – Horcoff – Hemsky
O’Sullivan – Gagner – Pouliot
Penner – Cogliano – Pisani
Jacques – Brodziak – Stortini
Isn’t that interesting, we thought to ourselves and stared at the line up doing an indepth analysis in our steel trap of a mind. Then we read this comment by our boy DK0:

“Totally right” we agreed “when WILL those idiots get a GDB up?” Then we came to the horrible realization: technically getting a GDB up in time for the game is our job. Then we theorized that the game mustn’t be for hours and we took a peek at the time for puck drop and saw that the game impossibly starts at 5:30 PM MST. Makes sense right? The game is being played in Ottawa, they are two hours ahead of OilersNation HQ.
Well son of a bitch.
Here is your GDB for this the 64th game of the year OilersNation. And right now, at this very moment we would bet each of you that there are a couple of scared new faces in the dressing room wondering all sorts of questions in their new little heads:
“Where do I sit?”
“Where is the Captain?”
“Why isn’t anyone listening to Coach?”
“Is it cold in Edmonton?”
“Will I make any friends?”
“Why is that one guy over there eating a donair before puck drop? Is that healthy?”
Easy, easy new Oilers. There will be plenty of time for these questions. First get ready to whip some Senator ass. You have 15 minutes till puck drop.
