Almost Stanley

March 30, 2010

Without a doubt, this is the most exciting point in the Edmonton Oilers’ 2009/2010 season; mostly because it’s almost over. No one will need to pretend to care, shell out for tickets or ludicrous payperview games, or make up excuses for why they didn’t watch a game. People are scared to come across as wagon-jumpers, so they sit through pure misery just to prove to themselves that the hockey squadron they adore so much feels supported. Wait, what’s that? They couldn’t care less? Well then, uh… you’re a squadron!

Really it’s not the aforementioned misery that people are avoiding these days; it’s the unadulterated boredom. That’s right, the boredom is now lacking adultery, that’s just how boring it is. There’s a light at the end of the pipe however, in the way of the NHL’s entry draft and the promise of a wee bit o’ excitement when free agency opens for business on July 1st. I think the Oilers are going to do something, which ’round these parts counts as excitment.

And finally, to prove that you aren’t a bandwagon fan, sit your tired self down over the next two months and watch the playoffs. The Stanley Cup run is what hockey is all about, and if I were Pat Quinn, I’d make it mandatory for my players to watch every single game, even though that’s impossible. Except this one time that my roomate and I had two TV’s going side by side, both of them swapping games, so in essence we watched four hockey matches all at once. Try it, I dare you. If anything, it’s a sure-fire way to get rid of that unadultery thing.

I don’t even know who I am anymore.
