In honor of tonight’s game against the Blackhawks we are going to go out on a limb here and do something we don’t ordinarily do: give you Jason Gregor’s Visa number. 
No wait. It’s the holidays. We won’t do that.
What we will do is ask Santa for a different present this year. The past seven Christmases it has been the same thing over and over again: Deliver us Natalie Portman with a memory wiped clean of any other life than being Mrs. Wanye Gretz.
But this year it is a different matter altogether. This year Santa — in your infinite wisdom as the God of Presents -– bring us four more winsies prior to the Christmas Break will you?
Yes Santa, we know and tremble before your might and power. We know we have angered you by not getting the NationStore up before Christmas thus disabling your ability to bring T-shirts to all the Citizens of the Nation who have demanded them under the tree. Still, we feel that we have behaved this year and really only need the following to be delivered for our lives to be complete:
Dec 16: Blackhawks – WIN
Dec 17: Canucks – WIN
Dec 19: Ducks – WIN
Dec 22: Coyotes – WIN
If you can find this in your magic sack (that’s what she said) the Oil could go into Xmas in 18-12-2. Wouldn’t that be some a Christmas Miracle?

Oh and…

Don’t forget about our new contest either Nation.
Taking pictures of the game day experience all around the Nation and winning a $75 Hudson’s Gift Certificate for the best pictures of the month.
We had a bunch of entries yesterday from locations as far flung as Arizona and Okotoks, AB. Okotoks, Nation! A city so environmentally friendly that they recycle everything including their Christmas wishes! Reading the Nation! Will wonders ever cease?
Now normally most of our photos that end up on the internet involve ‘boudoir photography’ of the lowest quality. But tonight, we are going to be in attendance at Rexall tonight and we have two goals:
  1. Run a few dozen beers through us
  2. Take a picture of something funny
Enjoy your sobriety in the press box Mr. Gregor and Mr. Brownlee. We will think of you during the second period when we are on our 7th beer and are trying to remember the name of the Oilers second round draft pick in 1995.
