My favourite Marty memory was just before last season, we went camping up near Lake Waskepetoo. It was a nice little getaway just me, Marty, his dog Dr. Teeth and the former cast of The OC. The long weekend was nice, but the best moment was when the car ran out of gas on the way home. He had to make it back for training camp, so he pulled us and the car, all the way back to Edmonton, from North Dakota. Such a nice guy, that Marty Reasoner. Thinking back on it, he was pretty tired the next few months... wonder if that affected the first 20 games or so of his season.
According to Mirtle's List - The 12th best point scoring forward is still up for grabs...
And obviously I don't mean CFP.
Also, while I'm here and writing.. count me on the side of glad that the NHL has told Lowe and Burke to shut the hell up. I wish it didn't have to get to that, but they are both being babies - and their name calling hasn't even been that funny.
Even though the ownership deal is weeks old, the ladies of Hot Oil would be remiss if we did not take a few moments to comment on the relative hotness of our new Big Boss Man, Darryl Katz. Power and money can be sexy, right? And free over-the-counter medication? HOT. It's a good thing Mr. Katz has those things going for him because he's no Dwayne Roloson in the looks department, if you know what I mean.
That's not to say I would kick him out of bed if I had on some cough-syrup-goggles. May cause drowsiness? Rawr. Bring over a case of extra-strength Robitussin, Mr. Rexall, and let's see where the night takes us.
IN: Ugly people EDIT! That's probably an unfair statement this early in the game. I just had a lot of problems coming up with a photo for Cole that didn't have a Stanley Cup in it, which made me sick to my stomach. And I can remember the hard-on people in Vancouver had for Brule a few years ago... now they have probably forgotten his name. Cough*bandwagon*cough.
