I know I don’t have to tell anyone here about what a long, dark slog it’s been since the halcyon days of spring 2006. We’ve all dealt with it in our own ways; some of us drink to excess, while others have taken to screaming into the void that is Twitter. Local Edmonton comedy troupe Mostly Water Theatre has taken to writing hilarious sketches about the never-ending darkness that is Oiler fandom!
Many of you probably watched their original video, in which a time traveler visits a group of Oiler fans during the 06 Cup Run to warn them about the extreme lows that will soon follow. Five years later and…. not much has changed around here.
As much as I love these videos I think it goes without saying that we’re hoping there isn’t a THIRD instalment circa 2020…
