Oils, Avs: It's On

No, really. I mean it. Apparently it's on. Tonight. At 7:30. The 29th game against the Avalanche this season. I had no idea. Sorry. This is all you get: we win, we catch the Flames. We lose, we still suck. But that's what we all expected anyway. So it's really a no-lose scenario. Happy? Me too.

I did a short riff on Jesus Christ Superstar this morning. Just a couple lines at the end of a post. But now I'm thinking I could re-write the entire musical about Miikka Kiprusoff (trust me, thanks to a zealous aunt and uncle, I know every word off by heart). It's times like these that I really wish I was in control of the music at Rexall. I'd bust out this song every time MK Superstar let in a goal (which is about every 3.3 minutes right now).

Ahhhhh. I can see it. I can hear it. It. Is. Glorious. GOIL!!!


Not only is it on, the game's in HD to boot (note: the Shaw channel will be 298, not 291).


If you were to record and post that MK Superstar of yours you'd be my hero forever Andy.

It wouldn't be enough just to play the song, Andy; you'd have to play this video on the big screen, too.

Colorado is a high-powered team short on goals as of late?

Bring on the Oilers.

Fuhget it. I'm off to bed!

Boy, I'm glad I missed this one.

Cmon, it's not over yet. The Avs only have...uh...36 periods...

And what does Edmonton have? 10? Shudder. I smell Christmas bag skate, the most fantastic bag skate of all!

Well, it's about the right time of year for our annual swoon in the standings anyway. It's just that this time, we don't particularly have anywhere to swoon to.

Well you got the "Jeezuz Christ!" part of it right at any rate.

Something like 43 shots against our 16. Man, when these guys are off they take the word "suck" to a whole new dimension.

13 shots total. Wow.

So I'm listening to the game in my van on the way to the pub. Game starts, sounds okay, park the van, make the five-minute walk to the campus pub.

Get inside, look up at the screen, it's 2-0.

Shit, I wish I wasn't DD.
