Ok, What’d I Miss?

    My fellow Nationers, it’s been a long time. I wish I could provide a valid excuse as to my whereabouts but I’ve never lied to you before and I’m not going to start now. Life has been hectic to say the least. One thing I’ve learned is that shift work ruins everything. The…

EAZY-E IS GUNNA SKOOL YA YO

  September 7 would have been Eazy-E’s birthday – he would have been 47. Like many NWA fans all over the world, I celebrated the day reminiscing through the sweet sounds of NWA and it got me thinking, Gangsta Rap isn’t so different from organized sports. Both are filled with corruption, greed, money, and most…

This Program Has Been Brought To You By The Letters WTF

One more sleep, Nationers. One more sleep until we find out who will be crowned the new Golden Boy of the Edmonton Oilers. I have to be honest, I can’t wait for all of this to be over. For weeks I’ve been listening to the same arguments in the Team Seguin vs. Team Hall debate….

We’re Number Last… We’re Number Last!

We’re the last team in the standings. We’re in 30th place. We’re the #1 losers. We’re the polar opposite of first place. No matter how you say it, it hurts. Not only do we have to put up with the mockery of Flames fans (there’s one in every office) but we also have to deal…

Bad Week= Xanax

It was a very troubling time in the celebrity world this week. Not sure if you heard or not but Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest on Thursday afternoon. No, seriously he did. They’ve been keeping it on the down-low out of respect for the family. I found out, of course, through a devastating phone…

Shallow? You Betcha.

I have no doubt that Pat Quinn will be a breath of fresh air to the Edmonton Oilers coaching staff but let’s face it, Renney would have been a better choice as far as the Hot-O-Meter is concerned. Come on, admit it. You know I’m right and I know you’ve thought the same thing.

MON DIEU!

Former Montreal Canadiens legend Guy Lafleur is facing a sentence of up to 14 years for acts of perjury and contradictory evidence. Funny, I didn’t even know he was bulimic nor was it illegal.

Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

As we approach the end of another disappointing season I can’t help but wonder what, if anything, would the Oil have done differently. The obvious answer would be win more, but each player is as unique a snowflake.

Don’t Drop the Soap

What does a girl love more than lip gloss and watching the recruits of the Edmonton Police Department train in the park down the street from her house? Drama, that’s what.

Stats Schmats

While most of the nerds in the Nerdery are busy calculating points, figuring stats… zzzzzzzzzzzz. Pardon me, I must have dozed off. It’s no secret that I could give a rat’s ass about stats. Numbers are, you know, hard.
