I can't say I will switch to another team. I've already got other teams that I like, but this is the home team.

Being invested in professional sports is really irrational and a giant waste of time, and as I've spent hundreds of hours wasting my time and money watching games live, on TV, on the internet, and posting on this message board, I can't give you a rational reason why I continue to do so. But I will continue.

This is probably the most depressed I've ever been about the team, and I think it's partially because any optimism we had in the team growing towards something the last couple of seasons, and the occasional glimpses of awesome (Chicago games, 8 point Gagner, RNH 5 points on HNIC, etc) were just illusions.

But then I take into consideration the absolutely ridiculous number of injuries the Oilers get to key players, the number of goal posts, etc, and I think "there must be a curse on this franchise". I think that has been the most frustrating thing about this year.
