Oilers Are Moving On!

Hallelujah, Praise the Lord! I AM TAKING A HOCKEY BREAK.

As mentioned previously, I am so drained from this hockey madness that has been created from my team making it this far in the playoffs. Well, especially since they are complete underdogs, they almost did not make it to the playoffs and were sitting in the eight spot.

I am so tired from doing so much laundry, so tired of pubs, so tired from yelling and cursing (Jamie wants the playoffs over with. I’m apparently “not normal” since the playoffs started.) and sooo tired of Heineken. Crap. NO. Not tired of Heineken. I just need to take a leave of absence from it.

So why this sudden hockey break? Because after 16 years my team is…


That’s right folks, on Saturday, May 27, the Edmonton Oilers won the series (4-1) against the Ducks with a 2-1 hockey game. Now it’s all up to the Eastern Conference to finish before we can move on to The Finals.

I don’t believe I have ever been happier before in my life. Wait, let me think about that one…

Yep, definitely. Never been happier before in my entire life.

Yeah, that girl standing over in the crowd of cheering Oiler fans? Her. The one jumping, screaming and possibly just dropped her bottle of beer to the floor. That’s me.

Now, I don’t want to jinx anything, but if they do win the cup it will give me another excuse to get a tattoo, as well as put into action some of the other great ideas I have to celebrate the moment.

/me knocks on wood.

Anyway. Once I calm down, wake up a bit and get some coffee in me, I will post again with yet another story. I just had to get the hockey excitement out of me.

Hey, even though I don't follow hockey (the Bruins suck, anyway), I'm happy that your team is in the finals! There's nothing better than that, and Boston has been super-lucky lately (the Patriots, the Red Sox...I just wish my beloved Celtics were good again :() Have fun, and remember: there's no such thing as too much Heineken.

Alex, thanks! I've had a few Oiler-hating friends wish curses upon my team. The excuse they use is that Edmonton has already won the Greycup this year... they don't need the Stanley Cup too. Little do they realize that I don't care and that I'm greedy! I want my city to have it all!

Okay, they're not my city anymore, but I still consider Edmonton my first home.
