Tend The Farm ~ From the wind-swept plains of Oklahoma comes Tend The Farm, where the little seedlings called Barons one day hope to blossom into full time Oilers -- one season at a time. Oh, and, farming the Oilers ain't easy.

Workin’ For The Weekend: Texas Twice, Sorta Nice “Don’t Believe The Hype”

Workin’ For The Weekend: Texas Twice, Sorta Nice “Don’t Believe The Hype”

Oh man, Public Enemy was a scary good outfit. Long before Flavor Flav was a running gag, and Chuck D was doing voice-overs for Grand Theft Auto, PE was one of the most culturally significant, and socially braggadocios hip-hop groups of any decade. The 1980’s had seen the birth of rap music through the lens of previous “passing trends” like disco and such. However, Public Enemy, and their spastic beats, were enunciated by the politically charged content of their lyrics, and this made them great. Chuck D remains one of the greatest lyrical poets of that era, musically or otherwise, and the balance of Flavor Flav’s good-hearted Jerry Lewis jabs continue to be dynamic nearly thirty years later. Despite where the band evolved from in the late-80’s to now (and the controversy that came along with it), there’s no denying the importance of Public Enemy. Go ahead, I dare ya.

Tyler Bunz Looks Forward To Season With Wichita

Tyler Bunz Looks Forward To Season With Wichita

The Edmonton Oilers had an interesting situation developing in net for their prospects this season. Signing Ty Rimmer to an AHL deal, the Oilers gave themselves seven total goaltenders signed, and only a limited number of spots to play them. Last season, the Oilers had the same situation, but Rimmer was already committed to playing for the Quad City Mallards of the then-CHL, allowing them to spread their goaltenders out among their affiliations. This season, the Oilers had to decide which goaltenders went where, and find another team for their extra goalie.

The Origin Of Iiro The Hero (And Other Finnish Things)

The Origin Of Iiro The Hero (And Other Finnish Things)

There is a lack of Finnish things on the Edmonton Oilers these days. In fact there was a lack of Finnish things on the Oklahoma City Barons roster since the departure of Teemu Hartikainen. The grand five years that the Barons have been in existence they have managed to position seven Baltic Sea lovers in the lineup, and seven has always been God’s perfect number. Toni Rajala, Antti Tyrvainen, Teemu Hartikainen, and to a lesser extent Lennart Petrell, Niko Hovinen, and Frans Tuohimaa have given opponents Helsinki Hell and caused a frenzied hot flash to Barons fans far and wide. The swoon-worthy-ness of Finnish hockey players has always been a tiny obsession of mine, and it only grows as the days go by.

This year the Oklahoma City Barons have introduced their latest Finnish Phenom and his name is Iiro, Iiro the Hero.

Barons Struggle To Play Full Game, Lose To San Antonio

Barons Struggle To Play Full Game, Lose To San Antonio

The Rampage and the Barons were both coming off losses the night prior to meeting on Saturday in the heart of Oklahoma City. While the Barons carried over their solid final period from the night before, the Rampage would continue the so-so doldrums. But quickly the script would flip and the Rampage would out man, out muscle, and flat out dominate the back half of the game on route to a 5-4 victory.
