Do you love wasting time and listening to me ramble about the Oilers? Of course you do. As always, I spent a few minutes to start of my Wednesday morning on air with the boys at The Locker Room to talk a little bit about the Oilers and a lot about life.
To start off this week’s appearance, I was asked about any weird summer jobs I did as a kid and, for me, there was only one answer. I worked at a donkey farm (yes, that’s a real thing) for a little while until I realized that I would only be doing manual labour and never have the opportunity to actually work with the donkeys. Back to the Oilers, the guys wanted to know what I thought about the Dave Tippett hiring and whether or not the moves the team has made so far will be enough to lure Oilers fans back to the bandwagon. As a perennial Kool-Aid drinker, I’m having a hard time not getting excited about what the future holds for the Oilers and I can’t wait for these next five months to go by so that I can watch the boys play again. Anybody else already hooked back on the Oilers despite another disastrous season?
