WSHL OKC Blazers To Wear “Throwback” CHL Sweaters In Inaugural Season

The WSHL Oklahoma City Blazers have exceeded my expectations in their attempt to be a legitimate hockey team in the central Oklahoma market. From day one the goal has been to develop young players, and embrace the historical roots of hockey that so many have grown to love in this state. Despite the league being vastly different from the CHL (and the cross-town AHL neighbors), they have managed to envelop the things that many found great about the Blazers.

Only days ago the Oklahoma City Blazers unveiled their inaugural jerseys, and boy do they take me back.

Some Thoughts On Penticton & The Afterglow

Some Thoughts On Penticton & The Afterglow

“Tread lightly,” I told myself about a week ago. “Don’t get swept up in the emotions of watching actual Oilers hockey,” I shouted in my backyard. “Watch Jujhar, Musil, Chase, Brossoit, Gernat, and others, but don’t get attached to what you actually see as ‘good’…

Instigating Forward, Greg Chase, Signs Three Year ELC With Oilers

Must love six workouts a week, ‘Superbad’, the number 25, and kind-hearted, but dangerous smiles. No, that’s not Greg Chase’s Tinder profile, but it is close.

It was inevitable, really, that Greg Chase and his kind grin would be signed to the Edmonton Oilers. The instigating forward with a great attitude, and genuine offensive skill, has signed a three year entry level contract with the NHL team. Chase, currently playing in the Penticton Prospect Tournament, played five games with the Oklahoma City Barons last season after the completion of his third full season of WHL play with the Calgary Hitmen. In those five games he fared well enough to score a goal.

In less than a month we will have hockey. Not across-the-pond, roller or the kind being played via an XBox, no, actual real ice hockey. With minor and major league teams in North America gearing up for another season of play, slowly rookie camps and prospect rosters are being announced. The Edmonton Oilers released their plans for the 2014 Rookie Camp, and per usual it features a host of recent and future Oklahoma City Barons.

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.
