Sitting Down with Craig Boa

If there’s one thing that we love as much as the Oilers it’s looking fresh, and that’s where Craig Boa comes in. Not only is Craig keeping the Nation (and the Oilers) looking good, his barbershop ‘Weekly’ has just signed on to be an official NationGear retailer. Basically what I’m telling you is that after…

SITTING DOWN WITH DUSTIN NIELSON

Just when you think that the season can’t get any worse, I present another Baggedmilk interview!  Just because the Oilers can’t make the playoffs to save their lives, that doesn’t mean I can’t focus on my goal of becoming OilersNation’s own version of Howard Stern?  With that, I present a portion of my interview with…

I got a chance to have a chat with Gene Principe and find out what makes the Prince of Puns tick. I used some of your questions and some from around Nation HQ to find out the history behind his pre-game segments, what keeps him going, who’s the best Oiler to interview and some other…
