Once again, we're playing one of the hardest teams to make a poster for, the Edmonton Oilers. Last time we went with "A Crude Awakening", a small mostly unknown documentary. Well, unfortunately this time wasn't much better. In fact, the poster itself was quite bland so I had to try and spice it up the best I could. Here's what I believe...
March 30th: Edmonton Oilers@ Detroit Red Wings
It's cold, you better have a scarf, young man.
This film shows the beauty and grandeur of the Red Wings Play-off Run against the political backdrop of NHL expansion in the desert exploration and development, and its impact upon Western Canadians and the land.
Not a very good synopsis (thank you, imdb) but the movie was narrated by Peter Coyote...you know, the dying guy from Patch Adams?
Speaking of Peter Coyote and Patch Adams, there's a good description of the Edmonton Oilers season so far. Let's check it out...
Hunter Patch Adams: Death. To die. To expire. To pass on. To perish. To peg out. To push up daisies. To push up posies. To become extinct. Curtains, deceased, Demised, departed And defunct. Dead as a doornail. Dead as a herring. Dead as a mutton. Dead as nits. The last breath. Paying a debt to nature. The big sleep. God's way of saying, "Slow down."
Bill Davis: To check out.
Hunter Patch Adams: To shuffle off this mortal coil.
Bill Davis: To head for the happy hunting ground.
Hunter Patch Adams: To blink for an exceptionally long period of time.
Bill Davis: To find oneself without breath.
Hunter Patch Adams: To be the incredible decaying man.
Bill Davis: Worm buffet.
Hunter Patch Adams: Kick the bucket.
Bill Davis: Buy the farm.
Hunter Patch Adams: Take the cab.
Bill Davis: Cash in your chips.
Hunter Patch Adams:And if we burry your @ss up, we've got a place to park my bike.
Moral of that little back and forth: get out of the way, Edmonton. Just roll over and die like every Leastern Conference team has done for the West this year (against all teams but Detroit). Will they do it? Not a chance. But we're not letting the last place team in the league sweep us in the regular season. Not.Gonna.Happen.
If they lose this game with Snipe Dangle Kris in attendance, I'm done going to games this year.
