GDB 42: The battle rages on

Wanye
January 13 2009 03:38PM

Look at this picture that we were sent by a reader of the Nation. It's so sweet that merely looking at it gave us a case of Type-II diabetes. Apparently it’s a baby yoga class chock-a-block with Oilers fans of the future just waiting to learn to read and write so they can come on here and yell at Robin Brownlee. But don’t let those babies fool you –- they will gouge out your eyes given half a chance.

There are things you know in life, Nation, and there are things that you don’t know. We all know where the Oil are in the standings right now, the 1,305,349 things that are wrong with the team and the 2,406,540 things that could be done to fix them. We'll spare you reading another paragraph about any of these matters going into the game tonight.

Instead we give you an option.

You can read about the Capitals here or you can read a list of 10 interesting facts that we guarantee you didn’t already know. You choose, Nation –- it’s your life.

10 important facts you didn’t already know

  1. The dot over the letter “i” is called a tittle.
  2. A female ferret will die if it goes into heat and cannot find a mate.
  3. It is estimated that at any one time around 0.7% of the world’s population is drunk.
  4. On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents every day somewhere in the world.
  5. John Wilkes Booth’s brother once saved the life of Abraham Lincoln’s son.
  6. About 200,000,000 M&Ms are sold each day in the United States.
  7. The first bomb the Allies dropped on Berlin in WWII killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo.
  8. If you put a drop of liquor on a scorpion, it will instantly go mad and sting itself to death.
  9. Charlie Chaplin once won third prize in a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest.
  10. Every year, four people in the UK die putting their trousers on.

You're welcome society.

The Oil will be joined by 150 Canadian Soldiers who are being honored at the Verizon Centre, along with Corporal Mark Fuchko, Master Corporal Colin A. Johnston and Corporal James Ryan Douglas who flew with the Oilers to Washington. That’s 15 kinds of classy Oil. Well done.

What about gassy? Because BM has that in spades as well. It smells like his ass is dying from the inside.

@ Jonathan Willis:

Well yeah. Any time a stick comes within a 2 foot radius of a player it's clearly impeding him, thus a drop in scoring, which leads to a drop in attendance, which leads to the collapse of the NHL, which leads to the collapse of OilersNation, which leads to the death of hundreds of people as Wanye goes on a rampage out of sheer boredom. It's pretty simple math Willis.

And I still think with a coaching change - bring in someone one who has a much more offensive philosophy - the forwards would flourish. Not sure if it would make us a better team, but easily a more entertaining one.

Crap. 3-1.

Eastwood: Ah-ah, I know what you're thinking, "Did he let it out six times or only five?" Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I've kind of lost track myself. But being this is an Eastwood colostomy bag — the most potent colostomy bag in the world — and its contents would destroy every sensory organ you have, you've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

Nurse: Not really.
