A few weeks ago my neighbour strolled up to my door toting a bottle of Bacardi Limon -- best drink going if you mix with water -- so I let her in. We yapped for a bit, poured a few Limons, but the Oilers game came on so I pretty much gave her the proverbial nod every few seconds suggesting I was listening to her. She must have caught on that I wouldn’t be engaging in any conversation until a commercial or intermission, so she sat at my computer and checked her e-mail.

We will go uh... WTF for $500 Alex.
A: On March 26, 2009 this team shot itself directly in the foot, losing 3-2 to the Phoenix Coyotes.
Q: Who are the damned Edmonton Oilers of 2009?

We all know what's at stake tonight. We clearly need to win this game, and, oh yeah, every subsequent game between now and game seven of the Stanley Cup Final (am I deluded enough to think we'll make it there? No. But I AM drunk enough). If we can't beat Gretzky's mongrels, then we're royal screwed. I could take losing to the Wings. We weren't supposed to beat them anyway. And though the Oilers seem to be in the habit (sometimes) of winning games they have no business winning, then uh, surely tonight... Frick, we CAN'T lose.

This just in from the Department Of The Obvious: residents of Phoenix (the people who haven't lost their houses to foreclosure and still live there) don't give two squirts about the Coyotes, let alone the Edmonton Oilers.

Most people agree that the San Jose Sharks know how to draft. They’ve been a good team for ages, and the current G.M (Doug Wilson) was promoted from within after a very successful tenure as the teams’ Director of Professional Development (1997-2003). Tim Burke, the Sharks’ Director of Scouting has held that position for 12 years and has been with the team since 1992-93.
