Anaheim Calling writer Jen does not like Joffrey Lupul. Jen's writing has caught Lupul's attention a few times, and he's responded to her on his Twitter account (a must-follow account, if only for the jaw-dropping things Lupul manages to type), so she knows her work is on his radar. And now, she's thrown down the gauntlet - if Lupul scores 35 goals for the Ducks this season, she's turning Anaheim Calling into a bikini shot site. Here's the problem for Oiler fans: we all know Lupul is a coasting, lolly-gagging, corner-avoiding, contact-dodging mook. Rooting for him would be nauseating.

However, there is also something to be said for bikini shots, especially since the most famous one involving the Oilers is of Rob Schremp and many of us are still in therapy.

Below is Jen's audition episode when she was trying out for Ducks TV:

You have the evidence in front of you. We want to know - could you stomach a wildly successful season from Lupul if you get bikini shots as a result? Is this a case of irresistible force versus immovable object? Do your memories of Joffrey Lupul treating hockey like it was a game of hide-and-seek mean that you can never root for him? Answer the tough questions, people. If it were a fight, I'd bet on Jen to win. Rooting for Lupul? I'm pretty sure that even offers of money wouldn't get Edmonton fans to root for Lupul.
