Back in the day you couldn't swing a cat in the OilersNation without hitting a good ol' TROLOLOL party. The fact my spell check keeps correcting it to TROLLOP shows us how long it has been since we have had any reason to celebrate wildly around these parts.

"You take two steps forward - I take two steps back." Oh Paula Abdul, you and that cartoon cat really capture the moment today around NationHQ. I always cheered for you two to get together, sometimes I wonder how your love story turned out so long ago.

But they just flew by didn't they? HAHAHAHA

So last night we were sitting around watching the World Cup of Hockey match on the TV waiting for the NHL season to begin. Whether or not the tournament is a real thing or a brilliant negotiating tactic against the Olympics remains to be seen.
