TGIF Nation. On this fine Friday let’s talk dual charitable drives and give a NationRadio update. Reading blogs sure beats working don’t it? Ooh yeah.
Pictured above with his favourite pooches is Baggedmilk – one half of the legendary website JSBM. Somehow or other they have landed a sweet pair of Oilers-Stars tickets and an XL Oilers Jersey.
Rather than quickly trading them for a fistful of GalaxyLand ride tickets and two large spools of cotton candy – they have kindly decided to auction them in support of the World’s Longest Hockey Game on Gregor’s show today.
"When Brownlee wrote that article the other day" baggedmilk explained via bbm, "we were seriously impressed that these guys are going that hard in the name of the Alberta Cancer Foundation. We lack the skates and fitness required to play as well as the motor car needed to travel to the rink, but we do have Oilers tickets. And a brand new Oilers Jersey. So we decided to donate that instead."
And some tickets they are Nation. For the game against the Stars on February 15 you could be sitting in "Ballers Row" – Section 134 Row 8. And you can be lookin oh so fine in your brand new Oilers jersey. How JSBM ever laid their sticky-with-candy hands on seats so prime we will never know, but mad props to them for stepping up and donating them.
The bidding will take place on Gregor’s show today and will end by 6. Call in and place a bid will ya?
ST. VALENTINES MASSACURE
Speaking of pictures of big hairy beasts that can rip you to shreds with their pointy teeth, get a load of Steve MacIntyre with pink hair. This year the Oilers pugilist has followed in the footsteps of Ethan Moreau and Ales Hemsky before him – donating his time and hair to the wonderful cause that is the St. Valentines Day Massacure in support of Cancer research.
Our good friend Roni is involved with the Massacure and took time from her day to email us about what a beauty MacIntyre is. Apparently he is a fine gentleman and is quick to land a hand wherever needed and has quickly become a favourite for everyone involved in the cause.
If you haven’t mentally spent all your money on JSBM tickets and the Oilers Jersey already, you might want to consider swinging by the Massacure website and sending a few bucks their way. If not to support a good cause, to placate the angry smashing of Big Mac there who has a short fuse and probably won’t stand for sluggish donation rates.
It wouldn’t be a Nation production if there wasn’t 11th hour drama would it? Hell no. Lowetide is ready to make his trimphant return to the airwaves. He has the first show all lined up – sweet guests included – and from what we understand it is going to be a hell of a kickoff.
The issue at the current moment is the Pint. Apparently you need to have something called an ISDN line activated to be able to broadcast live on the radiola. Apparently these lines can be turned on and off like a light switch and the line at the Pint is currently turned off.
You are probably thinking "but Wanye – shouldn’t you have figured out several days ago that this damned thing needed to be turned on?" To this we would reply "sure, but we have been busy doing other things for the show."
And to that you might ask "oh really like what?" We would reply "lots of things, like imagining Jordan Eberle being a guest and thinking of how to work it into conversation with really hot chicks. And doing lots of air karate in precelebration of the show being awesome. It has been a full week."
Then you would shake your head sadly and walk away.
The show goes live tomorrow as planned Nation 12-2 on Team 1260. If you miss the airing or don’t live within the broadcast area we will be putting it up on the site next week for you to download to your hearts content. It may broadcast the first time from the station is all. Is that such a big problem?
*shakes fists at the Gods of ISDN lines*
