A 5-1 over Dallas in Dallas last night? Jeff Petry scoring in two straight games? The rookie party must have been one hell of a morale raiser for the Mighty Oil because that was as complete of a game as we have seen in awhile from the Copper and Blue and Orange and Blue.
Time to party if you ask me.

Tickets are selling at a pace that can be described as "mildly brisk" for the OilersNation 5th birthday party at the Pint off Whyte this Friday. We like to think that it is because each $20 ticket gets you a free 5th birthday tee shirt pictured above.
Gregor thinks its because all the proceeds go to the Inner City Children's Fund. A buddy of mine texted to say "A UFC ring girl is in the house? That sounds like a recipe for disaster. This I gotta see."
Whatever may drive you to attend the party, we hope that you will join us on Friday.

The Oilers play the Coyotes today in your classic garden variety matinee. This is great news for the Oilers who are a mind shattering 0-2346 in franchise history in afternoon matches.

They say that Birthdays were invented by Wall Street as a way to sell more candles. And who are we to argue? As a five year old we couldn't possibly argue with something as sophisticated as Wall Street.

As promised the 2012 Lockout has condensed the 2013 season and put 'er on FF. Normally as Oilers fans we are entitled to at least several weeks of unreasonable optimism, followed by about a month or so where we are confused and perplexed about the team. Are they underachieving? Is the performance we are seeing legitimate given the talent the team has? Then we turn on each other for a month or two and then finally invent snazzy acronyms for being in last place.
But with the lockout shortened season this annual dance has been compressed and months have become weeks. Weeks have turned into days. Days become seconds. It's all happening so fast.
