GDB 49: Super Bowl Bait and Switch

steelers

Oilers fans will fall into one of three camps on Sunday, Feb 1, 2008.

Camp One

People who say "There's a football game today?" as they happily bundle themselves into their cars and head to RX1 to watch the Oilers play the Predators at noon on the very same Sunday as Superbowl 43.

Camp Two

People who say "There's an Oilers game today?" as they happily sit on their couch watching hour 498 of Super Bowl pre-game coverage documenting the early trials and tribulations of Pittsburgh Tight End Sean McHugh in excruciating detail.

Camp Three

Easy going fans who will switch back and forth between the two games, watching the Oilers if they are winning and tuning in to catch the end of the fourth quarter.

Whatever camp you are party to we salute you. We sort of fall into Camp three except that we love Super Bowl parties so very much. By the time you read this, in fact, we are most likely already on our way to Wobbly Town due to the Bud Light Express.

In any event, it sucks that the Oilers play before the Super Bowl. Unless they beat the Predators of course.

Then it was the greatest idea that was ever hatched.

Superbowl 43 Prediction: We will win the annual Coin Toss bet against our boy Smigerowski. Believe that.

If I was waiting in line for my egg McMuffin and I saw that Bullsh*t going on in the kitchen, I would lose my mind. You don't f*ck around with a mans mcmuffin.

You go to a game and most nights it's colder in RX1 than it is outside. Between the Oil Kings and the Oilers, the ice is being used far more than it was designed to. Maybe the reason we don't have ice girls is that they wouldn't be able to handle the amount of snow they'd have to shovel. Right now, there's only one girl and she rips around those boards like crazy in a track suit. Must be a hockey player because there's no way a model on skates could do that.

Hair of the dog old friend. It's magic. That hangover will be gone in fifteen minutes if you chug a beer with a shot of Jack in it. A boiler maker I believe.

Travis - are you "live posting"? A guy tried that a few months ago and had a surprise visit from the Oilers MIB. Didn't turn out well. Better make a run for it if you see any guys in suits coming towards you with their right hand on their ears. Heh heh.

I caught a few minutes of the Montreal game yesterday. Reminded me what it's like when fans are into the game. Maybe everybody has to sit on their hands to keep them warm in RX1. It's f*cking cold in there!
