OOOO! It’s a cold one out there today. Judging fromt the size of the snowbanks that accumulated while we were away, it has been a hell of a couple of cold weeks.
In fact, it is being called by some the most snow in memory for Edmontonians – one that will be remembered for a long time.
The winter of 2011 is so memorable that recently released rapper Gucci Mane took it upon himself to embrace the cold, getting "BRRRRR" as a part of his recent facial tattoo.
Classic. Oh Gucci Mane, your tale is so bizarre it deserves being discussed in place of a meaningless 43rd game of the year against the Kings. Go on you say? You got it.
"Gucci Mane (was) committed to a mental health treatment facility after he filed a “Special Plea of Mental Incompentency” in a Georgia courtroom yesterday. The plea claims that the rapper would be unable to “intelligently participate” in his probation revocation hearing; his condition is currently being evaluated at the facility."
After a several day evaluation in the mental institution, the charges against Gucci were dropped and he was released back into society. How do you celebrate this narrow escape? How do you begin to show the federales that you are anything but "mentally incompetent?" Why, with a face tattoo of an ice cream cone that reads "BRRRR."
"According to Gucci’s spokesperson Kali Bowyer, the image is "a reminder to fans of how he chooses to live his life. Cool as ice. As in ‘I’m so icy, I’ll make ya say Brr.’".
Cold as ice Gucci! Come up here to E-town and we will show you what BRRR is all about.
OILERS V KINGS
Damn these skilled Kings for all eternity and bless the Oilers for keeping ELPH hockey alive through the holiday season and into the new year. Even though the Oil have less points than they did at this point last year, we can’t help but think they will have a better second half than last time around when they compiled a 0-42-0 record and led to hundreds of thousands of TVs being turned off all throughout the OilersNation.
There is far more to be excited about in 2011 if you ask us.
Look at the Oil, way down there in the TSN rankings. It positively warms the heart. And you – you over rated wind bags LA, look at you so high among the league’s elite. Someone won’t be getting a lottery pick this summer. Tsk.
WIN BY LOSING
29th place in the league power poll means one thing Nation: stay on target.
Yeah, there is danger. Yeah, you might end up splattered against the hull of the death star. But you are on the right course for ultimate victory.
It’s game time. Dubnyk starts.
