First, the Oilers suck and suck hard; hard enough for a reasonable fan to turn on the arena-greasing, ticket price-increasing Edmonton Investors Group and their slick sales machine, lead by the true heart-and-soul of the team, Pat LaForge. Now another equally crushing casualty from this nightmare season: estimable, stalwart Oilogosphere blogger Andy Grabia is quitting Battle of Alberta. I can't think of a better, more prolific blogging performance this year, especially after he filled the dangerously large shoes of BoA's previous Oilers scribe, Sacamano. We can only hope that Andy takes a well-deserved break, watches some baseball, writes a novel or something, and then comes back into the fold next fall. The Oilogosphere is Toby Petersen without him.
