I agree, I felt the same way at the time.
boy were we wrong.
don't know if anyone had mentioned it, but Krueger's quality of motivational speaking (by the way the oilers have played) is more and more looking like that chris farley motivational speaker that lives in a van down by the river.
they must be neighbours.
