He's Toast.

I'll miss Thor ...kinda. Good move by Philly.

I figured we didn't even do a Valentines Day lovefest of the Oilers, so the fact that I'm even putting up a photo indicates Hot Oil is NOT dead.

I'm just preparing for a trade deadline that could make for a Marty-less Oilers.

You're hearing it here first.. if Marty is gone, whatever team he goes to, that's my Stanley Cup run team.

Fly fly away boy... fly fly away.

Even if he's a Flame? Or a Canuck? I know the Flames and Oilers have never traded with each other before, but what if it happens this year? And what if he joins the Canucks, and you have to hear a bunch of girls outside a Lululemon store in Vancouver talking about how hot he is, and how they are going to buy a Marty Reasoner Canucks jersey? THEN WHAT DO YOU DO?

Hey sis (Alana),
sorry to hear about Roli and his education problem ( kids can be so mean) but you made it thru worse handsome exits, messier! Don't worry, Garon will be middle aged some day, even with his drafting triangle for a nose.

All the best,
Jon

Alana said...

Thanks, Jon. I can't believe his kids are getting teased at school! Poor Roli.

Shelly said...

Alana that makes me sad, too. I read all that...sigh. Poor family, poor Roli.
Not happy!

Andy Grabia said...

Ease up, ladies. Roli is now saying the bullying stories are not true.

Shelly said...

Mmmm, they weren't getting beat up or anything I see..but they're just little. They don't get the ragging-on thing, and anyway it has nothing to do with his children. I think it just adds to the frustration level of a super shitty season, and a pro athlete does want to *play* the game, after all...wherever that might take place. Which I can understand. I can see the temptation to chuck it, forget about it, start OVER, already!!!

Shelly said...

ok I'm not the brightest crayon in the box. 2 little kids that don't believe in sleep & watching/playing hockey till the wee hours is NOT contributing to clarity, here!
Andy what I meant to say was, I think R is understandably frustrated w/ his train-wreck of a season, he ill advisedly let some of that leak out in his remarks to the media, it got run away with a little, and now he's backpedalling furiously in order not to seem so much like CFP, which I'm *SURE* he *NEVER* meant to sound like at *ALL*. Who would.
That's what I meant.
So I still feel bad for him & his family. It must really suck right now.

Roli's a competitor. He wants to play, not sit on the bench. If he wanted that I'm sure he could have retired into a goalie coach role in many a city. I don't blame him. One bit.

I'll be sad though if he goes. He and Thoreson are/were the only current Oilers I've actually met and I liked them both. And if the rumour that Roli might also go to Philly materializes I may have to hope for them... Thoreson, Gator and Roli?

I hope they don't trade Marty though. That one feels wrong.

OMG, Lowe would not trade Marty again would he?! That would just be so wrong. Him coming back after he was traded says that he's actually one of few guys that wants to be in Edmonton!

I'll have to slit my wrists if that actually happens lol Seriously though.. if Lowe trades Marty AGAIN i'm going to have to uh...key Kevin's car.

Konsty said...

If Marty will be traded, lets hope that he will traded to the team who can really fight for Cup. Marty no too young as hockey player, and he wasn't play for Cup for so long. You know, I want to see that Marty win the Cup, no matter which team it will be.

Shelly said...

t., what? What rumor?!?!?! OMG!! Go Flyers.....I mean, Oilers! Geez louise!

I do keep on thinking with some trepidation what other teams I might now have to keep an eye on...the two I hate aren't even options (thank Heavens), but please not anything like the Blue Jackets...please....

Marty was asked what song pumps him up. His answer: Simply the Best by Tina Turner(!?)

I shouldn't be so quick to dismiss a player due to musical taste, but c'mon! Tina Turner?!

As Mr. Grabia might say: "I think I just puked in my mouth"!

Lord Bob said...

He's simply the best.

Better than all the rest.

Better than anyone.

Anyone I ever met.

This is the part of the movie where Marty and I start making eyes on the dancefloor. I'll cut it off here out of recognition for what I did to the last comment thread.

Too late.
