Oilogosphere Hot Off Day #6


Mirtle: He writes for the Globe and Mail. He blogs about hockey. He is the "Sydney Crosby of hockey blogging." It is apparent in this photo that Mirtle has not become acquainted with hair loss. He is also the master of the "come hither" look. Mirtle looks like the kind of guy who would like to take you out to a nice dinner and talk hockey to you all night long. And that defined jawbone doesn't hurt, either.

Michael: Michael's favourite Oiler is Petr Sykora because of his alleged resemblance to Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. He also likes Dwayne Roloson because of Roli's ability to combine sports. At the young age of 24, Michael still has a full head of hair. He likes his women to be witty and sarcastic. Now if that's not sexy, I don't know what is.

Mike W: His blog makes all the girls squealy. His posts reflect a man whose heart breaks with every Oilers loss. In his spare time, Mike W enjoys riding in boats and creating hilarious comics about the Oilers. Like most of the competition, Mike W still has a healthy head of hair that will no doubt be around to dance in the wind for many years to come. Plus, his co-blogger, Chris! has already made it to the next round. You could turn Covered in Oil into the bloody mayhem of a battle field.

MIKE AND HIS SAILBOAT TAKE IT, WITH 64% OF THE VOTE

I involuntarily giggle every time I see Mike's picture. "Dance in the wind" -- hee hee!

I like the unintentional reference to Laura Leighton's character on Melrose Place...

James Mirtle said...

I'm glad this will be all over soon...

Tans are overrated. And so is life-like color in photographs.

My friend told me that I better smile, and I was all "Pfft. Yeah, whatever." Well, ha! No one else is smiling in this round, either! Except maybe Mike, but that's more a smarmy smirk.

Yeah. I'm going to go watch the Jackets get massacred by the Preds, now.

Do I spy a beer bottle in that picture? A man who drinks while he sails + windswept hair = hot.

No way that is Mike. I've never seen him so put together. That has to be his doppelganger. Did he belch after that beer, and say, "someone smells stink-eeeeee..."?

Is it just me...or does Mike look a little like Bergeron?

He must be Bergie's little brother.

I like owning boats. On the other hand I hate Bergeron.

I pity the other contestants who have no boat in their pic. It's like having super powers over girls, dammit. (and maybe a few guys)

Maybe owning a boat could be a pre-req for all future hot-offs?

Whoo-hoo! Go Sailboat Mikey!

I think the judges here are having a serious hair obsession. The most important selling feature seems to be that they still have hair at 25. Hopefully, everyone still has hair! Stop dating baldies while fantasizing about hockey players!

I'm actually sitting next to a fleet of sailboats in my picture; think of how history could have been altered if we'd only had the full shot here.

Le sigh.

Well James on the positive side the Prez likes your defined jawbone

... I had a ship in a bottle in the other room.

That counts for something! ... right!? Come on, if you can make a ship in a bottle, then ... then ... bah!

James is hot, but sorry you just couldn't compete with the sailboat.
