Happy birthday, to the newest Oiler


It’s a weird day, nationeers, for a lot of reasons. On the one hand, it’s a solemn day on this the anniversary of September 11, 2001. On the other hand, it’s the first day of the rest of our lives.

And while Gregor waxes intellectual about line combinations, Willis tweets about how the Oilers are not, in fact, over the cap, Brownlee grumbles quietly to himself (and loudly to others), and Wanye’s off doing god-knows what, we thought it was important to make a certain someone feel welcome. Oh sure, Mike Comrie hasn’t proven himself yet, but the lad knows that he does have something to prove.

So on this sunny Friday, let’s all raise a glass to the newest Oiler.

Happy 29th birthday, Michael William Comrie.

You are now nearly as old as the many of the writers on this website. Except Brownlee, who was around when Jesus wore cowboy boots.

    The Hockey News fantasy guide is predicting Comrie to put up 43 points (67gp 20g-23a), The Score Forcaster is predicting 37 points (68gp 15g-22a). If he produces these numbers, is the signing good bang for the buck. And would people be happy with that output.

    I always thought that it would SUCK to have a birthday on a date like September 11. Everyone is so solemn. Nobody is in the mood to party. It'd be like having terrorists crash your birthday party and blow out your candles just as you're about to make a wish.

    After seeing Brownlee's picture I thought he was an 80 year old woman. I just figured being a journalist was really, really, REALLY hard on the body. Well congrats on gaining another 7 years and two testis in my books Robin! (note: this post was intended as a joke and should be in no way taken as fact. If you, the reader, happen to be Robin Brownlee please do not "break off a size 13" in the posters you know what place)
