    He is going to Oilersnation. Not sure yet what he will be doing, wrestling stuff perhaps? I know he is a fan of all sports generally and not just the Oilers. I've really liked him for a while, seems intelligent enough to make it far.

    Did he talk about a song he loved from the 50's for twenty mins first and then go off on them? or rave about his favorite Fife and Dekel pie?

    He touted the Fife and Dekel sandwich he had the day before, then boasted that his My Pillow helps him sleep like a baby. I dislike My Pillow. I use one and it's nothing special at all. Cool side of the pillow? That's ********.

    Yeah I went there LOL

    Everytime I flip over to 1260 between 10-12 I pray that someone is filling in for him for the day/week/month/year/ever

    I'm happy for Lowetide's late-career radio renaissance but I find his show to be tough going these days. Aside from McDavid's exciting scoring exploits, the Oilers are on the far back burner with me probably until the NHL Entry Draft in June at least. Allan's show is definitely not the place to be for those of us who are feeling this way. Also I much preferred Lt. Eric to Yaremchuk in the role of Lowetide's foil.

    Kudos to TSN 1260's Dustin Nielson for being chosen to handle pbp duties for TSN at this year's Spengler Cup tournament.

    Yes kudos to Dusty!

    But remind him that when he stands up and makes fart noises with his hand and armpit that the locals may not find it entertaining.

    :sarcasm:

    Hope not. As bad as Quinn is, it actually might be worse.

    I thought that Nielson did a nice job at the Spengler. Still, I think that football pbp is where he's at his best.

    Even though he blocked me on twitter for one sarcastic comment o_O, I think he does a great job in the mornings and a solid job in Davos. Happy for him.

    I think he's on tomorrow again, but either way good job Tom Gazzola on Lowetide's show this week.

    Feeling in apparently while Lowetide is off. Only caught him today, but I really liked the guy. Perfect voice, smart questions, fluid conversations.

    I'm not sure. I don't think the reasoning was ever made public.

    Was he the one that announced a trade involving a player that wasn't actually dealt?

    Not sure if he does podcasts, but Stauffer had Ray on his show. Not sure what was funnier Ray saying he might tangle with Stauffer and Stauffer would explode or the story about him and Domi fighting at the draft.

    Essentially they had the same agent and were sharing a room. They then end up fighting and only stop after Domi hit his head on the end table and was cut open. Apparently the only time Ray cut Domi, and they fought 23 times.
