1st ANNUAL NATION DRAFT

Wanye
January 18 2013 02:33PM

If we were still a kid we would yell "HOCKEY IS BACK IN 1 SLEEP" because that is how we measured things back in those days. Now we are far more mature and the return of the NHL season means it is time for us at Nation HQ to get to steppin! More articles, more writers more games! More everything! Try things! Hurry!

To that end we are proud to introduce the first annual Nation Draft presented by United Cycle.

SAY WHAT MEOW

"Why Wanye, what is a Nation Draft?" you may be asking as you lounge about your glorious mansion in some sort of fur pant suit. A Nation Draft is your standard pay to play hockey draft where you pick a top scoring player from a group of four 28-mind-testing times thinking it is so easy. Only to later find out that Brett Lindros retired years ago and couldn't possibly outscore Dane Byers.

Then you submit your team and we email you every Monday breaking things down for you and then you win an avalanche of prizes.

Think that Ovechkin will outscore Fistric? That kind of genius is exactly what we are looking for. Say, have you been working out lately? What a package deal you are beauty and brains

(insert other flattery here until sufficiently buttered up)

WHATS IN IT FOR ME?

Uh ever hear of Prize-a-Palooza? Cause that's right here friend. We have rounded up over $10,000 in prizes including a $5,000 shopping spree at United Cycle or FIRST PLACE, Prepaid Visas raining down from the sky, crested Jerseys, Pint Gift Certificates, Oodle Noodle GCs, Jiffy Lube Oil changes, iTunes cards and much more!

That's right, show us your hockey knowledge and you win a $5,000 shopping spree at United Cycle.

We will be releasing the final number of prizes and denominations in total once the number of entries has been finalized but we already have 100 prizes in a pile marked "DON'T TOUCH" here at Nation HQ. And if we don't give them all away we will be forced to change the oil in the WanyeMobile dozens of times in a row.

Please don't let that happen.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR SOCIETY?

A portion of the proceeds from this draft will be going to the MS Bike Tour and the Inner City Children’s Program as so awesomely supported by the pair of Jasons -  Mr. Gregor and Mr. Strudwick.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME AGAIN?

Over $10,000 in prizes remember? HOLY ATTENTION SPAN

WHAT DO I DO

                                     Just click here to enter!

 

Final note: You must be 18 years of age or older and a resident of Alberta to play

Long time lurker, first time poster. I have signed up specifically to take part in this. I know you don't HAVE to be a commenter to play, but I figured it was probably proper protocol.

Wanye. You da besss.

Tried to sign up, told me I was Declined because my Info could not be verified.

I'm too shadowy for this Draft. My cloak and dagger lifestyle doesnt play nice with others.

"You must be a resident of Alberta to play."

BOOOOOOO-URNS

I'm going to start my OWN stupid pool where only residents of WHEREVER THE HELL I LIVE can play. The only rule is: pick whoever you damn well please. Everyone who's NOT a resident of Alberta WINS.

I checked and double checked but the draft doesn't like me.

Strangely enough, I did receive a call from Visa about a ton of "suspicious" liquor store purchases that took place near Wanye Manor. i am also apparently the proud owner of a new jetski.

True story.

Same boat, er, Jetski on this situation. It just wasnt meant to be. I'm notoriously bad at this stuff anyway.

Ok, I never pay for drafts. But as a loyal Nation member I had decided to enter. And if on the off chance I would win the big prize, I was going to donate it to an Edmonton charity. It would have meant a bigger pot but....

....I can't enter because you're shutting the ex-patriots out.

I would like to participate, please fix this....asap!

Formerly known as Upper Volta. Capital Ouagadougou.

...seriously.

Anyhoo, as I can't participate in the Nation's annual confidence breaking experiment from here in La Belle Quebec, I wonder if there is a way to run a parallel pool on an identical grid for those who are not Alberta residents. I don't care so much about the prizes, although a $5000 shopping spree sounds nice... I just want to do what Pelhem did. He was a giant for those few weeks. It was only then that I realized his name wasn't Phlegm. NOTORIETY!

Of all the times to be out of province to pursue higher learnin'... I place the blame for keeping me from entering this draft on the UofA since they rejected taking any more of my tuition money.

Maybe I can find a loophole.

I don't want to alarm anybody, but Yakupov tweeted one of the Yak City poster entries from the Oilersnation contest to Nuge, Hall, and Eberle.

If this guy isn't your favorite Oiler by year's end then you might already be dead.

I had a good chuckle at the opening spiel, "If we were still a kid we would yell "HOCKEY IS BACK IN 1 SLEEP" because that is how we measured things back in those days. "

I propped a guy in the last article for saying that same thing..

Damn, I bet all of the Oilers would be here like all of the time if there were just an

OILERS NATION ART GALLERY

showing all of the cool photoshop images and all of the cool various other Artworks that have been presented here.

So, I look forward to the

OILERS NATION ART GALLERY.

Please let us know when the

OILERS NATION ART GALLERY

is posted.

It will only take about 10 minutes to collect the images and put them on a page called

OILERS NATION ART GALLERY .

Thank you in advance.
