I am the exact opposite of you. If you switched the words 'Oilers' and 'Esks' you would sum up my feelings perfectly.

Last night even my in-laws were noticing that not only was I not watching the Blackhawks/Kings game, I didn't even know that they were playing and that the defending Cup champs were facing elimination. Starting during the '06-07 season the Oilers losing ways (and their gutless way of losing) have almost completely turned me off of NHL hockey. Meanwhile, I renewed my Eskimos season tickets this year without a second thought despite the Maciocia & Tillman reigns of error and no Grey Cup wins since 2005.
