A Prayer to Hockey Jebus


Dear Hockey Jebus, with your original hockey mullet high up in hockey heaven,
You who hangs out all day with Tim Horton and Maurice Richard playing street hockey.
You and the other Hockey Gods make the decisions on who wins what,
While trying to ignore the Gods of Heavy Metal—who make a hell of a racket down the hall.

You saw it in your infinite wisdom to deny the Oilers a Cup in 2006 for reasons we will come to understand in time.

You showed us your wisdom by allowing most of the good Oilers to become injured,
And allowing the newer, better Baby Oilers to rock ‘n roll for the last month.
