It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The NHL and NFL seasons are in full swing. We’ve got amazing October baseball (I still believe in you Jays) every night, and First Star, Worst Star is back to help nurse your Sunday hangover! LET’S GO!
What an absolutely magical night in Calgary last night! For those of you who don’t spend your Saturday’s constantly refreshing Twitter and may have missed it, I hopped onto a bus with about 50 other Oiler fans as we took Calgary and their garbage arena by storm! (Seriously nothing about the layout of the Saddledome makes any sense. It’s a labyrinth of walk ways and spiral stair cases, and 90% of the Scotiabank ATMs at the Scotiabank Saddledome were out of order. It was horrible). Obviously our entire section was filled with Oiler fans, but to my pleasant surprise there were Oiler fans EVERYWHERE at the dome! I’d say it was a good 60/40 split between Flames fans and Oiler fans. It almost felt like a home game!
AND WOULDN’T YOU KNOW IT THAT ALSO JUST HAPPENED TO BE THE GAME WHERE THE OILERS OFFENSE DECIDED TO SHOW UP AND CONNOR MCDAVID FIGURED HE WOULD GRAB A GAME BY THE THROAT AND HAVE HIS WAY WITH IT!
Spectacular play by McDavid, and a spectacular save by Hiller. https://t.co/tB8poLWgjm

Obviously it’s still very early in the season, and they have plenty of time to pull themselves out of this tailspin, but man, if they can’t find a way to win a game here real soon we might have to legitimately pencil in the Blue Jackets as a contender in the Auston Matthews derby. GET IT TOGETHER COLUMBUS! You’re embarrassing yourselves! (But seriously though please keep losing as much as possible so that there’s a nice safety net for the Oilers to not be the worst team in the league, JUST IN CASE!)
