Frustrating...

I grew up listening to John Short from 9 p.m. to midnight. He was a wealth of knowledge, so I always learned something, but he also had the pleasure of hosting the post-game shows when the fan's emotions were very intense. I then had the luxury of hosting the post game show for five years from May 2003 to August of 2008.

It was glorious. I loved the passion that fans had right after the game. Usually fans were the most vocal after losses, except for the Cup run of 2006. That was the only time I can remember fans calling in after a loss or win and still being upbeat. I was supposed to be off air at midnight but during that Cup run and then again during some bad losses I'd stay on the air until 2 a.m. chatting with Oilers fans.

I don't miss the hours, but I miss the raw emotion after a game. Some nights I felt more like Dr. Phil Dr. Jay than a sports host, talking to fans who were almost too distraught to carry on supporting their favourite team. It was great.

Last night, and even this morning, the frustration amongst some Oilers fans seems to have reached a new level.

GDB 1.0: DOUSE THE FLAMES

Just win

This is a game the Oilers must win. The Flames played last night. They are starting their backup goalie. The 1984 Stanley Cup winning team is in the building. 

If the Oilers want to turn the corner these are games they MUST win. It is that simple.
