Historical Hot-Off, Semi-Finals!

Sorry folks -- I've been waaaaay too busy to deal with the high-maintenance Hot-Off contenders for the past while. If Kurri asks me to fetch him a bag of fucking Whoppers one more time, I swear he's going to be eating those chocolate-covered balls of cat vomit with a straw.

To top things off, Comrie's still smarming it up with his talent-less new girlfriend (who, through a complete and utter fluke I SAW IN CONCERT three weeks ago (justification: it was free)! OMG! Seriously, the girl can't dance and can barely sing. If that's all the skillz it takes to be a millionaire pop star, sign me up. But I digress.).

Aaaaaanyway, some real contenders were eliminated in the last round: Gretz is not great at turning on the ladies, and I am sad to see Semenko fall to the baby-faced Weight (who, may I remind you, played for the 2005-2006 CAROLINA HURRICANES). Here's who's left:

MacT versus Weight

Smith versus Coffey

Historical Hot-Off, Round 3!

Now that we've ditched those squares Simpson and Arnott, we're one step closer to selecting the hottest one-time Oiler EVAR. The remaining competition is stiff:

Bill Ranford vs. Craig MacT

I couldn't find a good recent picture of Ranford, but he's definitely puffier than he was in his grandstanding heyday. MacT, on the other hand, shows no signs of middle-age bloat. Think hard: ARE YOU FOR OR AGAINST WATER RETENTION?

Dave Semenko vs. Doug Weight

Battle of the autographed pictures! Semenko pretended to punch Mohammad Ali! Weight wrote some stuff! Semenko's signature has a swirly 'S'! Weight's has a fancy 'D'! WHICH IS AWESOMER?

Jari Kurri vs. Jason Smith

Skirts or awful third jerseys? YOU DECIDE WHICH IS HOTTER!

Paul Coffey vs. Wayne Gretzky

Coffey can grow stubble. Gretz can't. PLEASE INFORM US OF YOUR PREFERENCE.

Team Hotness Increasing Exponentially!

With the loss of one sleazy real-estate agent hedgehog, we can all sleep easier tonight in the knowledge that, next year, we won't have nearly as many migraines caused by screaming SHOOOOOOOOT! at the television until blood comes out of our ears. Yes, it is a good day.

It's Alive.

Garageband gave me a lot of troubles crashing every 10 minutes, so does anyone have a suggestion on how to record a podcast?

Either way, I uploaded the 15ish minutes of Andy and I chatting about our lives. Most of the Oilers talk was lost.

Three Posts in One Day? Who do I think I am?

Anyways, I'm starting a podcast with the first episode being taped tonight - hopefully ready for the world tomorrow. My first guest is Battle of Alberta's Andy Grabia. I'm sure he'll have lots to talk about with the recent Penner acquisition. (No squees from me.)

You can check out the intro here: NOT HERE.

(And that's probably where the rest of the episodes will go, until I figure out how to put them on iTunes and such.)
