Like many other Canadians yesterday I was following the epic story of SpiderMable as she made the rounds of the internets, social media and the antiquated “tee-vee”. If ever there was a story to warm the heart as temperatures begin to dip, this was it. An already ultra proud Edmontonian, this entire operation made my heart swell with pride in the City of Champions even more.

The 2015-16 Oilers season is on the horizon and coming towards us with breakneck speed. Excitement is beginning to build in some camps, indifference reigns supreme in others. In other camps still, many former Oilers fans remain faithful to their new past times discovered since the Oilers developed an enchanting habit of sucking these past eight years.
You might want to turn off Netflix, log out of Fantasy Football and stop paying attention to your loving spouse and children, former Oilers fans. I have this sneaking suspicion that none of us – in any of the camps – have any idea the magnitude of what is about to occur.
It’s time to draw a line in the sand of the history of our collective fandom, hit reset on all the crap we are mad about and reignite our excitement and passion for the team.

I still can’t fathom what has happened to the Oilers in the past eight days. The draft lottery was the stuff of Oilers' fight songs in 100 years time but a total house cleaning at the top, too? I still stick to my two theories that I either died sometime on the evening of the 17th of April and this is heaven or I'm currently in a coma and this is all a dream.
Whatever the case, if my wishes keep getting granted at this rate I should be married to Natalie Portman by 2 PM next Thursday. Everyone is welcome to attend the ceremony and the nine day non-stop party afterwards.

I am literally happier than if I had won the actual lottery.

If you want to read about the last eight games of the Oilers' season against the Western Conference, who are licking their chops in anticipation of handing our local squadron their asses, this ain’t the article for you.
This is about decoupling our city's self image from our beloved Oilers until they can get their shit together and give us something to believe in again.
Consider yourself warned.
