Why the hell not: Schremp called up





Well, at least we have one reason to tune into tomorrow's sure-fire loss: showboat and all-round frat tard Robbie Schremp will likely make his NHL debut against Minnesota. Most of the Oilogosphere agrees that this guy is no saviour and even a bit of a longshot to make the team next year. He's not a great skater, poor defensively and has been a healthy scratch at times this season in Wilkes-Barre.

But still ... I'm pulling for him! What other Oiler might threaten to "kayak" down the ice in celebrating a shootout goal? Ladislav Smid, maybe
or not at all, come to think of it. Either way, it should be interesting to see how Number 44 looks in his debut, especially if he gets a shot on the powerplay.

Man, where'd you find the big picture of Schremp in the thong? Everywhere I looked it was removed.

Nice double-post, dinkeyes!

Man, how come we don't talk anymore?

This blog can go days between posts, but the moment Robbie Schremp is called up we're rushing to re-post the banana hammock photo.

We are sad little men, Pleasure Motors.

gary b said...

so, does Mr. Schremp use a conventional hockey stick, or does he just apply a two-hand grip to his schwanz??

What was lord bob's quote? One-stop shot for all his Oiler-related homoerotica?

Posting pictures of men in banana hammocks was the only reason I signed on to this blog in the first place. Or perhaps you forgot my earlier effort, bananahammock.blogspot.com?

(After actually typing that address in and finding a blog, I want to clarify that that was a joke, and that I've never actually posted about High Five under the name "burmese boi".)

I can see why THIS was so popular! Too bad he's left his fans hanging for, like, four and a half years.

Lord Bob said...

That site gives me, like, fifteen different sorts of inspiration on how to make my site more popular. Get a bit of CaMeLcAsE goin', !!! no, not the animal! lol!!!

Okay, the novelty of that didn't even last long enough for a proper sentence. Anyway, I've already shot my wad on the subject elsewhere so I'll just say it in brief here: Schremp ain't no saviour, but he ain't as bad as the banana hammock might indicate. I still don't know what the hell his coach thought he was doing scratching him. If he and Lupul switched places next year, it would probably be an upgrade.

I don't even want to know what that was supposed to mean.

McLea said...

And I have to say, I'm getting a real kick out of how everyone is reacting to Schremp. I mean if he was a soccer player or something I would understand the hysteria, but he's a freaking hockey player. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that 95% of the hockey players I knew growing up were exactly like Schremp. You throw 20 random hockey players together and send them with Schremp to the bar, and I guarantee he wouldn't even stand out. In fact, he'd probably look down right tame in comparison.

Seriously guys, you've lived a pretty sheltered existence if seeing a picture of hockey player in a banana hammock shocks you.

I sure hope his equipment doesn't get lost. One gets the feeling there's not a Cup that'll fit in Edmonton.

Merely that, though that was an absolutely atrocious and indefensible fashion choice, Rob Schremp is not an absolutely atrocious and indefensible hockey player. Not that 'indefensible' does not mean 'cannot play defense'.

Fuck that. HOCKEY JESUS!!!

He's not a great skater, poor defensively and has been a healthy scratch at times this season in Wilkes-Barre.

Who the fuck cares? That's what defencemen and Todd Marchant are for. I WANT GOALS!!!

Darien said...

I'm sure he's scoring tons with these pictures all over the intertrons... Just... not on Backstrom...

yeah, he's going to get his clock cleaned on the ice.

Julian said...

i've got another (fairly tame, unfortunately) Schremp-at-a-bar pic, i'll email it to one of you guys.

kate said...

andy, the hockey jesus comment is pure gold.
he likely will make little to no impact in how the oilers look tomorrow night, but i'm excited to watch nevertheless. not as excited as andy, mind you.

AAAAaahhhh Ryan Smyth may have just killed the Leafs!
