NATION PLAYOFF POOL UPDATE #4

Another week is in the books and another star player is taking heat for not performing when it mattered most. Crosby had a tough second round, but so did a lot of the Penguins.  If you had Crosby in your pool, like I did, he didn’t exactly help out much in the standings.  After jumping…

Teach Me About the Edmonton Rush… I’m Talkin Playoffs

Yes I know this an Oilers blog, and yes this article is about the Edmonton Rush.  While that may seem confusing to you, there are methods to my madness – I need your help.  Tomorrow night, I’m going to my very first Rush game and I don’t know what to expect, any lacross rules, or how…

Photoshop Contest – Offseason Training – the Finalists

Before we even get to the finalists, I just have to say thank you to everyone that sent something in.  I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in a while.  There is nothing Oilers related that has made me this happy in a very long time!  You guys are geniuses, I commend you and bow to your greatness.

Meet Our New Partner, Print Machine

It was a good day, at Nation HQ, when we somehow convinced Print Machine to sign on as the official clothing supplier for Nation Gear!  One of the first things I started working on here was finding a provider that fit in with what we wanted to do and wasn’t afraid of our nonsense or ridiculous ideas. We’ve found that…

The Nation wins a Yeggie? Yeah we did

After watching the Oilers miss the playoffs for the 300th straight year, Nation HQ was down and even had a “what the hell are we doing with our lives” moment. Should we fold up shop and get back to bagging groceries or should we ride this Oilers fail train right into the pits of hell?  Well…last night OilersNation was…

NATION PLAYOFF POOL UPDATE #3 & NEW NATION GEAR

The playoffs are well under way as is the Nation Drafts playoffs pool, and it seems as though there are new names on the leaderboard every week.  Either that’s a sign that we’re all geniuses or that the players we’ve chosen are choking at all world levels.  You’d have to think, at this point, anyone that…

Photoshop Contest – Offseason Training

While Wanye is trekking all over hell’s half acre, your ol’ pal baggedmilk is digging around the Nation HQ warehouse for stuff to give away.  I looked through what we have in inventory, begged a few sponsors for GCs and am ready to give away some prizes.  As such, I think it’s time for another…

Nation Playoff Pool Update #2

So one week goes by and your ol’ pal bm has dropped 100 spots in the playoff pool – magic genie I am not.  Last week, I was talking trash about the poor suckers below me in the standings, fast forward to today and I am in the tank. I’m dropping faster than lady garments in the…

Arena Updates and a Grant Fuhr Jersey Winner

The sun is out, the Oilers still suck, so I decided to make my way to the new arena site to take some pictures and keep you all up to date.  If you remember my last update from RX2, you already know that you’re in for some coverage you won’t get anywhere else. As always, if you actually know what…

Idiot with a Soapbox – Playoff Thoughts

Anyone else feel like having the playoffs on is like a daily slap to the face? While a lot of us are still watching games, (3 game 7s tonight!) it’s not nearly as exciting or awesome as having a team to cheer for.  Actually, it’s even worse than having no one to cheer for…
