3.6 Million hockey fans have voted and the results are in. The fans have named the '84-'85 Edmonton Oilers the best team in NHL history. Whenever a story such as this comes up, we always like to go back in time with Wayne N' Mess.
Yuke and I were revisiting some old ads from the 80's/90's yesterday. You know the ones. The ones that were blatantly aimed at children. This was before the government stepped in and said you couldn't say things like "Go into your mom's purse so that you too can collect them all!!!". Anyway, this ad really brought back some memories of when sugar was considered a vitamin.
So, this bit is really stupid. If you're a longtime listener of the show, you will most likely recall our longstanding series called "Hall 'N' Ebs". For many a season Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle lived in the same condo. In our fictional realm, the two teammates slept in side-by-side Bert and Ernie style beds. When Hallsy left the team, the Oilers' newly appointed mascot, Hunter the Lynx, moved in with Ebs. Zany cat related consequences ensued. Many listeners will comment upon hearing this bit that Hunter the Lynx sounds erily similar to 80's comedian "Bobcat Goldthwait". That, uh... that's intended. Lynx...Bobcat... ge... get it? Here's a window into the living arrangement of Hunter N' Ebs. In this episode, Leon comes over with a bag full of free hats from his hat trick on Sunday night.
Leon Draisaitl scored 3 goals last night, so, in honour of his hat-trick, we have another terrible parody song for you. This one is to the tune of 'Cause I Got High, and it even pays homage to Leon's German heritage.
Well, Mark Letestu did it again. He scored 2 goals in last night's 7-1 trouncing of the Anaheim Ducks. SO: Here's a reworked version of my previous terrible parody song that I originally made for #55, but this time it included some more current events.
Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle used to live in the same condo where they sleep in side-by-side Bert and Ernie style beds. They have since parted paths by way of Hallsy's trade to New Jersey. In this episode, Ebs receives a call from Hallsy. Hall's pretty proud of his recent achievement.
This.... This! is the worst parody song I've created to date. Easily, but, It was admittedly a lot of fun to make. It's set to the tune of "Eiffel 65 - Blue", but it's been re-worked to become "Eiffel 55 - Letesblue". Yup. Enjoy.
We're always very happy to receive insight into the sporting world from those who know it best, so with a warm welcome we often invite sports insider Kate "Beer"ness into the studio to give us the breakdown on the most pressing sports topics. On today's take, Kate tees up round 2 of the Oilers' playoff run.
We had the pleasure of having Robert Clark in studio. He's the gent who has been charged with singing the national anthem at the Edmonton Oiler games. Since the playoff run began, he's been singing the anthem in the stands with the crowd. We talk about that and much more.
Ramina Shlah is a Calgary Flames fan and Hockey blogger who recently had to own up to her tweet that she sent out, pre-Oiler playoff run. She tweeted "Calling it now, the Oilers won't make it past the first round. If they do I'll get "I Love the Edmonton Oilers" tattooed on my ass". Twitter called her out on it after the Sharks were defeated, and this morning on the show, we did too. She's a great sport and we were very happy to have her on the show.
