GDB 49: Super Bowl Bait and Switch

Wanye

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.

So, did the whole team stay up and watch the Aussie Open last night too?

Where is the urgency? I thought we were 70000-0 in afternoon games.

Wow edmontonoilers.com already has a headline "Hemsky has the Oilers within one"

I have a bet with the OilersNinja how many seasons Hemsky has played in the league. That's the only reason I go there.

@ Louie Debrusk

You have no right to talk about finesse, Hemsky or goal scoring.

There were a shîtload of Canadians out for that game. A lot of people come down for that weekend for Nascar and especially that weekend cause they had a Monday Night football game which I doned my Oilers jersey for.

Yeah I was there for the football game, and even ended up in Vegas for a night. I met up with some Canucks fans in the bathroom and started beaking them. Ahh good times.

I met a Canucks fan at the football game. The conversation went like this.

Yehaw: "Hey you there, Winchester, where did you get that jersey from? A garage sale? yuk yuk yuk"

JB: "*long sigh* dare I ask what team you cheer for?"

Yehaw: "Im a Canucks fan!!!!"

JB: "AHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA"

Yehaw: "hey bu...but"

JB: "AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHHA"

Yehaw: "bu....but..."

JB: "GO back to section 423, tell your team to go win a cup, then come back and see me. Have a good night, go Cards"

so.... Gilbert up front. Yeah, he's got hands. It's a good move. Yup, keep Nilsson on the bench. Another great coaching move brought to you in part by the letter O and by cookies and also by MacT.

The boys must have been out for a ripper last night. Took 'em two periods to shake off the hangover.

This is a game we should have won going away. Freaking Evanka is showing more fight than we did for most of this game. Mmmmmm...Evanka. *sigh*

BTW - what in the flying f*ck is with those Habs prison uniforms????
