Simply The Best

Kudos to Matt and Sacamano, as well as BoA's loyal and (mostly) erudite readers/contributors. Vue Weekly has named The Battle of Alberta, along with mc79hockey, the "Bestest Way to Follow the Oilers."

"You can read John MacKinnon’s and Terry Jones’s forced-out-to-fill-pages musings if you want, but for my money, the most entertaining and thoughtful sports commentary of the past year didn’t come from those paid to deliver it, but from the fans. While they don’t possess the insider scoops of the real press, and their democratic nature can lead to some silliness from time to time, blogs like battleofalberta.blogspot.com and mc79hockey.com, and columns like Vue’s own In the Box provided unique and passionate takes on our favourite game, during one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory. This stuff may not be the future of journalism, but it is a nice diversion from Don Cherry telling us to support our troops while there’s a Stanley Cup Final going on." (DB)


Hmm. I wonder who that "DB" fellow could be?

Comments:

It's obviously the mysteriously-absconded aircraft hijacker D.B. Cooper.
 


Right! And I was certain it was celebrated and assumed inebriated hockey pugilist Dave Brown.
 


Actual, boring answer: Vue Weekly contributor David Berry.

IIRC, we (Sacamano) got some love from them back during the playoffs: our blog helped the one writer get so excited about the Oilers that he did the Rock Out With Your Cock Out thing on Whyte.
 


Congrats guys on the well deserved kudos
 


I don't know what a two-bit theatre writer knows about hockey, anyway.

Um, I'm pretty sure Cosh and I knew the answer to that. We were having fun, see?
 


I found Pleasure Motors' comment to be a lot funnier. And here we thought you were starting to take yourself too seriously, Dave...

If there's one thing I don't, Matt, it's care what the hell you half-wits think.
