WANYE ON THE ROAD: AMSTERDAM II

  This is a story about three young lads who go travelling to Amsterdam in search of optimistic adventure. Two are Canadian, one is an Australian who is now the newest resident of Edmonton and Wanye Manor. We meet up with an ex-pat Canadian living in Amsterdam who sobers us up more than anything that…

1st ANNUAL NATION DRAFT

If we were still a kid we would yell "HOCKEY IS BACK IN 1 SLEEP" because that is how we measured things back in those days. Now we are far more mature and the return of the NHL season means it is time for us at Nation HQ to get to steppin! More articles, more writers more games! More everything! Try…

YOU AINT GOT NOTHING

Welly. Welly. Welly. If our old friends at Bodog didn’t release the odds of winning the Stanley Cup now that the lockout has ended – a mere 145 months after it began. Good news in these parts up here in Edmonton, because it confirms something we already knew – The Oilers are awesome.

LIKE IT NEVER EVEN HAPPENED

What’s that thing called when you break up with someone, both see other people and then decide you are going to get back together and have to pretend like the last 6 months never happened? Yeah. It’s time for about 1000cc of that.

ECHL GAME

  Any league that has the sense not to lock themselves out through Christmas and any team that has the sense to mysteriously drive off Theo Peckham gets our business. Where do you go when there is nothing to do and you are still riding high on having survived a Raiders game? It’s time to…

RAIDERS GAME

With the heart warming news that the Lockout negotiations are extraordinarily poorly, your ol’ pal Wanye decided to go to a place where rage and danger are the norm. A place where most people rightfully fear to tread. When there is nothing left to live for you have nothing left to lose.  Time to take…

THE CASUAL AMERICAN HOCKEY FAN

With every blessed day that the Lockout drags on, your ol’ pal Wanye is pushed further from home in the vain attempt to forget about the NHL and the beloved Edmonton Oilers. Today his sobering musings come from San Francisco. Also he is speaking in the fourth person, which has to be some sort of…

BLURST OF TIMES

It’s funny how a protracted labour dispute in the NHL will put a damper on an NHL blogging Network. Assuming you define "funny" as brainshatteringly annoying. Who wouldn’t want to read an up tempo article like that right?!

NATIONRADIO: A QUESTION OF TECHNOLOGY

  With all the hoopla surrounding the lockout on the horizon and the Economics of the arena dominating the news, the Sports Section looks more like the Business Section these days. Who doesn’t love a riveting cost analysis diagram where there should be a breakdown of the Oilers training camp line up? And we would rather see an interview with Fehr…

NERD CAMP UPDATE: WANYE GOES TO FACEBOOK

This second nerd camp update is about successful youth: Mini Daddy – featured above – and Mark Zuckerberg as you will see shortly. It is NOT about your local squadon’s efficient penalty killing or the fact that Shea Weber is now richer than Zuckerberg and Mini Daddy combined. You have been warned before making the…

WANYE GOES TO NERD CAMP

Last Sunday we boarded an "aeroplane" and headed off to nerd summer camp in San Francisco. And because we basically use the Nations as a diary and because Kent hasn’t figured out how to override our author clearance on the site you are about to hear all about it. Come on it’s summertime – you gotta…
