Dragon Victory!

Zhiqiang Wang scored the winning goal with less than 3 minutes left in Regulation as the China Dragon defeated the Nikko IceBucks 4-3, giving them their first victory of the season.

Wang's Goal capped a wild third period, during which started with the Dragon leading 2-1. Mikhail NEMIROVSKY's goal 5 minutes into the 3rd period made it 3-1 Dragon, until two goals by the Icebucks tied the game at 3. Shots on goal were almost even, with the Icebucks edging the Dragon 33-32.

The win by the Dragon ends their 19 game losing streak to start the season. The China Dragon are still in last place in the Asia League with 3 points, and a record of 1 - 19. The Nikko Icebucks are in 5th place with 26 points.

We have a Winner!

FIRST OFF, i DO know how we started talking aboot Batman having a T-Rex in the Batcave. We were talking on the show about Chad moving, and i asked him if he moved his giant penny, or his joker card, and then asked if he moved his robot t-rex, and Chad asked ' why does batman have a giant t-rex?'! MYSTERY SOLVED.

In anycase, we took all your theories and put them to a vote, and the 'The T-Rex is Batman's Uncle' will win a TextBot Trivia Postcard! Thanks to everyone for voting!



Makin Whoopee Poll - WTF is up with the TRex in the Batcave?

I don't know how we got on this today, but somehow a search for a TextBot Trivia question morphed into a Contest on who could come up with the biggest, Strangest, most creative Theory as to why Batman has a TRex in the Batcave! So Instead of picking a winner ourselves, we've decided to open it up to YOU! Pick which theory you like the best, and the winner will receive a TextBot Trivia Postcard!

You however, will receive a fabulous NOPRIZE, and than the satisfaction in knowing that someone may get a nifty Postcard (Signed by Chad and I!)

Dig the Poll above!

Vancouver Report

Good Day Loyal Crew

Yes the rumours are true and YES i was in Vancouver last week, for what i've come to call a 'whirlwind trip'. A whirlwind trip is where you take a hyper condensed vacation, that is so short and jam packed that you don't realize its over until you are on your way home. 

I hadn't been to Vancouver since i was just a lad, and its quite the place! So i thought i'd share some of my thoughts and opinions on Van City.

First of all: Vancouver people don't sleep; as clearly shown by the amount of people walking around with coffee cups. There are coffee shops, EVERYWHERE! 2 per block, sometimes one on top of the other! Everyone had a coffee cup in their hand. One might think that even the pan handlers were asking for change with their outstretched coffee cups. FALSE! They just wanted some fresh columbian roast. 

Another neat thing about Vancouver is the fashion. When was the last time you wore rubber boots? Grade 2? Grade 3? Well let me tell ya, in Vancouver, Rubber boots are all the rage! Before heading out, every vancouverite grabs their umbrella, a cup of coffee (naturally) and their rubber boots. It was very interesting to see the very stylish and well dressed citizens of downtown vancouver with their posh jackets, stylish suits and Goodyear Rubber boots, sloshing around Robson street.

Now we all know that Vancouver doesn't get the same winter we do on the prairies, but to my understanding it does get a little cold. Many trees were showing fall colours, with PILES of maple leaves on the ground ( Side Note: Why don't we have Maple Trees in Edmonton? I feel so Non Canadian!).  So you can imagine my confusion when we saw people planting flowers! Ummm..Aren't your plants dying? Won't the flowers wilt, or worse yet, Drown? 

Maybe Vancoverites hate all non coffee producing plants.
