For The Oilers, There Is A Need For Armpit Sniffing

For The Oilers, There Is A Need For Armpit Sniffing

A year ago I was browsing the pages of everyone’s favorite UK newspaper, The Guardian, when I stumbled upon an incredible photo section. That particular day the photographer had the job of documenting some of the oddest jobs in the world. That’s where I met Betty Lyons.

At 88 years old, this home grown Ohian had spent the last 35 years in the offices of Hilltop Labs just outside of Cincinnati. As a life-long sufferer of various skin conditions and axilla ailments, Betty took it upon herself to give back to the world. For Betty, life was a great puzzle, a challenge, an obstacle-ridden journey – this pushed her to become a researcher for the labs for nearly 35 years.

Her job wasn’t significant in most circles, but to her it was the world. Simply put, one of Betty’s main directives was a “sniff tester”, mainly in armpits.

Tony Borgford, AHL GM’s, & League-Wide Consideration

Tony Borgford, AHL GM’s, & League-Wide Consideration

Tony Borgford seems like a nice fella. Driven by a devotion to the game, the nuts and bolts of it all, the trendy-video-guy approach with a keen eye for diligence – he seems like a keeper. In a recent interview via the Oklahoma City Barons YouTube page, Borgford made several interesting statements that were both direct and ultimately telling in most regards. But before we dive into the quote round-up let’s explore what we already know.

Promoting Bill Scott to an Assistant GM role in Edmonton ushered in a day for the Oklahoma City Barons and the Oilers. The placement of a minor league manager was important to previous NHL org leaders in Edmonton, and it worked very well. Scott high-tailed himself into the daily routine of the OKC Barons, worked alongside the coaching staff, watched, listened, and carefully examined potential signings. His strength wasn’t in managing high drafted prospects or overseas acquisitions, but rather in his ability to find exactly what the team needed at all the right times. Mark the Arcobello being the largest and most successful-to-date find. This worked well in the first seasons of farm play in Oklahoma City. But things changed, and last season we watched a very young team struggle to find their legs, and Scott unable to steady the ship as he had before. Oh he was capable, and likely willing, but the prospect culture emerged (as it should have), and his managerial skills were less about looking outside, and more about finding inside.

OKC Barons Unveil “New” Third Jersey, It’s Old School Oil

OKC Barons Unveil “New” Third Jersey, It’s Old School Oil

Orange you glad that you visited the blog today? Puns aside, the Oklahoma City Barons unveiled the newest “third” jersey that will be worn during the 2014-2015 season. During the 2013-2014 campaign one of the most popular jerseys quickly became the limited edition Special Olympics Barons Buddies sweater that were auctioned off to the highest bidder. Details of that bid are found here.

This most likely fazes out the road copper and navy (one that I really like), and places the emphasis more on the orange and blue scheme. This feels like the jersey the team wanted all along. One side note here, I prefer the oil drop logo over the main Barons logo/crest that is featured on this new third. Just a preference.

Predicting The Oklahoma City Barons October Roster

Predicting The Oklahoma City Barons October Roster

You feel that? Yes, that’s the swelter my friends. Congratulations, Oklahoma, you have reached the early portions of August, and the summer hasn’t been all that awful…until now. Where your first thought in the morning is “Do I wear an undershirt today?”, “Do I pack a change of clothes?”, and “Will overtime hours cover my A/C bills or will I need to sell a kidney?”

Per Europe, “It’s the final countdownnnnn”, yet unlike Europe we actually know what we are counting down to (specifically), and it’s hockey season in OKC, and the tolerable temperatures that go along with it. But before we get there we need to evaluate contracts, positions, and the whosits and whatsits of roster placement. I’ve thrown darts against the wall, and here is my October roster in Oklahoma City.
