Good Christ.

Steve McIntyre fails to even resemble a human being during a fight in last Saturday's game against the Flames. Whatever you do, don't ever sleep with this man's girlfriend.

It almost looks like his eyes are crossed, too, which adds an extra level of menace, as if one were needed.

I far prefer Zack's sleepy slowdances. Now I'm very disturbed that I just typed that. Oh dear.

raventalon40 said...

So you prefer Zach's slowdances?

How about his:

willowy waltz
dreamy disco
passive polka
tardy tango
comatose can-can
slumberous salsa
slothy swing

I don't prefer Zach's style over MacIntyre's (fighting-wise). MacIntyre's hit on Boyd was pretty huge for the team but huggy-bear is still by far a more effective player overall.

Zack Stortini, you are the love of my life!
Oh, Zack Stortini, I'd let you shag my wife!
Oh, Zack Stortini, I wish I were as hairy as you!

Whatever you do, don't ever sleep with this man's girlfriend.

I thought everyone already knew he was gay.

(I mainly post this comment to bolster CiO's burgeoning rep as a BLOG, home of immaturity and made-up shit.)

Steve MacIntyre is one thing and one thing only. A legend and a hero among us mere mortals.

Take it in Oiler fans, that mug is going to commanding and conquering.

The man crush on Big Mac extends from the pits of our hearts and the reaches of our blog, and you should do the same.

Beauty post as always.

Lord Bob said...

Don't worry, Matt. I suspect Mike meant "girlfriend" more in the prison sense.

T. said...

Not that it's relevant but he's married. So um...don't sleep with his wife I guess is what Im sayin'.

Paul said...

you know, it's kind of hard to defend the maturity and professionalism of the Internet's leading bastion of Flames slash fiction. That said, CinO boy, please don't ever change.

gary said...

sweet baby jeebus what a scary mug.

if Katz paid to put THAT on the front of our jersey we'd go 82-0.

Chris! said...

Someone out there thinks we're mature and/or professional?

Lord Bob said...

The trouble, Chris!, is that you can say anything you want and have no accountability because you didn't take six months of journalism lessons that you mostly drank your way through.

Chris! said...

Lord Bob: I know, that argument has been by far the most entertaining aspect of this whole conversation. Keep hearing people like Gregor saying that the problem is "anyone can be a blogger," but really: what does it take to become a sports journalist? Tuition. And in some cases, not even that.

What gets the good old boys in the press box's brows a-furrowing isn't bloggers — it's the fear that an intern with a press pass could be doing what they do next week for a fraction of the price.

Well, that and the possibility that a fan base would possibly rather read a well-written and engaging blog post by some rank amateur than their daily uninspired gathering of "110%" scrum quotes and unilluminating injury updates.

Do any of you guys ever take the time to consider the stength of your message or the damage it can do?

Chris! said...

Slipper, what do you mean?

Slipper said...

Ha, sorry. That's one of Gregor's attempts at social commentary over on Staples' site.

My beef with bloggers is that anyone can be one. Most are nameless, faceless people who write their opinions, but unfortunately there are too many false facts in blogs. I understand the next generation gets most of their information from the Internet, but unfortunately lots of it is horribly written or inaccurate. Kids read this stuff and they believe it. I don't think bloggers truly understand the strength of their message, and also the damage it can do.

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin got a degree (allegedly - eventually) in journalism. And she was a sportscaster before she went into politics.

I leave it to others to judge whether that means that a background in journalism could lead to great things, or that any incoherent airhead can get a degreee in it. :)

Slipper said...

So just to be clear: has Steve Mac ever actually served a prison sentence?

My 3 year old nephew has already begun to practise tattooing "Laraque is Steve Mac's bitch" onto orange peels.

Slipper said...

Anyone can be a governor.

Lord Bob said...

Covered in Oil caused the Russian invasion of Georgia.

(Full disclosure: the commentor currently mocking Jason Gregor got a C in his introductory journalism class. The problem wasn't that I drank my way through the semester, it's that I also slept through the semester. Also, sleep time coincided with journalism time.)

Slipper said...

Blogging is like most things in our society nowadays. Quick, impromptu and impersonal.

This is so true. I can never wrap myself up at night in a post from CinO like I do with a Terry Jones or Jason Gregor print article.


Damn. I epitomize anonymous, quick, impromptu and impersonal.

Slipper said...

Speaking of the penal system, did anyone else notice the expression on Prust's face after those early body shots from MacIntyre?

It looks as though he got stabbed.

That's sooooo Edmonton!

In fact, my new nickname for him is going to be The Shiv... or Steve Stabmonton.

dubya said...

Shouldn't that be Steve McStabmonton

Slipper said...

Steve MacStabmonton:

"His body shots will only make you wish you were being raped inside a prison."

I think we're creating a brand here, fellas.

teebeeplayer said...

Fantastic picture!! Maybe it's time to add another picture to the glorious Covered in Oil masthead????

Rock Deputy said...

Maybe it's time to add another picture to the glorious Covered in Oil masthead????

I second that.

Rock Deputy said...

For a slugger, Big Mac's got a surprisingly nice set of teeth... like, mormon nice.

namflashback said...

I particularly like the fact that it was Boyd that got hit -- he was the one who boarded Sam Gagner during one of the preseason games. I think its important to let opposing players now that their number will be recorded for future purposes.

Jeanshorts And Baggedmilk said...

I'd like to nominate, that from here on out, Steve MacIntyre will be referred to as SmashIntyre.
Lets get a show of hands from all those in agreement.

D said...

I think someone did SmackInytre already..

LittleFury said...

Steve Sexisonfire?

Chris! said...

Come on folks — though it's not bad, we can reach a little further than Smackintyre.

Gotta say that I haven't heard anything better than S&M, Coin Laundry or my new fave, Safe Word.

Safe Word!

grease trap said...

I thought you were already going with Good Christ, as in The Fear Of God, the Peacemaker, The Second Coming, The Ressurection.

The Lamb of God! No wait...




...I'm out.

Lord Bob said...

Other than Coin Laundry, the best I can come up with are boxing nicknames. The Brock Brawler, for example.

teebeeplayer said...

Anagrams are fun! Throw Macintyre into the anagram generator and you get:

Anti-Mercy

and My Ice Rant

kewl....

How about Mac the Knife?

It comes with it's own song and everything.

I like knife imagery.

Justin said...

Wow! Just imagine the worship if he had actually won the fight! (I guess he did win it, technically, on points...you know what I mean tho)

MikeP said...

dubya: it's Edmonton.

Steve McStabmontonCHUK, please.
