GDB 13: It's on

Wanye
November 06 2008 10:19AM

Of all the games the Oilers have played so far this year, tonight’s is by far the biggest.

"But why Wanye? It's just another game isn't it?" Are you kidding? The results of this game will cement our reputation with a bunch of strangers in Pittsburgh! Oilers win, they’ll all hate us. Oilers lose, they’ll all hate us. Who can live with the uncertainty!?

This is why gambling was invented by Eduardo Las Vegas in 1879—to make sports more interesting. We took up the cause started by our boys over at jeanshortsandbaggedmilk, who have been deftly battling with this huge blog in Pittsburgh all by themselves.

We aren't going to leave our friends fighting solo. It's like in Junior High School when your friend would get challenged to a schoolyard fight. What do you do? You third-man-in and crack the kid in the skull with your Thermos! Take that Jeremy Tandrup, age ten. Don't mess with our crew. We have never been afraid to get involved in any nonsense that comes our way.

So we contacted these dudes at pensblog. They ignored our email. Then we chirped them. Then they claimed they didn't get the email. Then we went out of town and ignored them. Then made contact and the bet is cemented.

Why should you care about the game tonight? Oilers win, the pensblog will purchase the first two NationGear T-shirts off the line in Dec 2008; we’ll give them to two lucky citizens of the Nation. Oilers lose, we have to buy two of their T-shirts for giveaways to their fans. Oh and the loser has to write an article explaining the awesomeness of the winning city.

"But Wanye you don't got no money. You ain’t gonna pay for no T-shirts!" That's right Nation. Oilers lose tonight and your ol' pal Wanye is going to have to sell an eyeball. Ever see Pirate Wanye with an eye patch? It ain't pretty.

Oh and Justice League? We hear that Pens fans will be in attendance tonight.

It's on.

Perhaps others will have better luck:

So, upon reviewing the highlights, I see that we allowed a guy to score one handed, between his legs from the side of the net. And that no one told me the Penguins have one of the best hockey players in the world. Perhaps I should listen to more Pierre McGuire.

Anyone have any insight on how Peckham's done so far? And it looks like Goddard is MacIntyre's only weakness. His kryptonite if you will.

I think it was Peckham who sorta was worried about the Croz and left Satan all alone to do what he did. Other than that...ok?

Ninja: Ken Lowe is the medical trainer.

Pittsburgh figured out our only weakness. As long as the other team only has four skaters on the ice, it's almost impossible for the oilers to score. ALMOST impossible.

Wiki says...

MacTavish didn't leave the game, however, returning for the 1997–98 season as an assistant coach with the Rangers. After two seasons in the Big Apple, he joined the Oilers as an assistant coach in the 1999–2000 season. He was subsequently promoted to the top job after head coach Kevin Lowe moved into the general manager position.
