GDB7: Don't make it weird

Wanye
October 25 2008 05:30PM

Game time at 8 PM MST Lambs. The 3-4 Canucks and the now 4-2 Oilers will square off in what should be a good tilt on HNIC. Now we say SHOULD because the Oilers have had started to make things weird for us.

Not weird like the-Gloved-One-here-rolling-out-of-his-crypt-to-hang-with-Sigfried-and-Roy-weird but weird all the same.

See if a team sucks and they lose you say to yourself "oh that makes sense, they suck!" If they have suffered injuries and lose you say "If only hadn't lost so-and-so. They would be way better." If they had bad luck and some junk goal went in you say "better luck next time. That goal won't always go in."

But what of the Oil? Out to a quick 4-0 start where they got away with a couple lucky wins - sure. But the last two games? Just plain weird. No jump, no defense, no offense, no heart, no physical play and no wins. This isn't the Oilers team we have been dreaming about all summer. We know you are in there somewhere real Oilers team. What better time to come out of your funk than to lay a stomping on the Canucks on HNIC?

A final observation

Luke Schenn just tried to fight Chris Neil as we wrote this post in the first half of the double header. If he can take his 18 year old life in his hands at 5:18 PM, imagine what could be happening in three short hours?

Awesome.

What we need here is one of the Oilers to put this team on his back and score right now

Maybe they have some sort of saddle or cargo transport system for Grebs. Goats are strong.

Alright boys, I'm going to bite the bullet here. GM Place is 20 blocks from my apartment. I've loaded up a bag with a jug of kerosene and some matches from Diamonds. If I'm lucky Alex Burrows will still be in the shower as the Vancouver Fire Department takes their time finishing off their Latte's before hoping into the trucks. Wish me luck.

I find it difficult to watch the post game when the Oilers lose. I'll stay on here but I HAVE to switch to highlights
