OT - Fun little game

So here is a fun little game to play, it might be more relavent to me being an Oil fan in Calgary but fun for all none the less. Go to a Flames fan you know and tell them that the Oilers are rumored to have signed Todd Bertuzzi, listen to them trash talk the Oil for a while, then tell them, actually the rumor is he signed with the Flames. Then watch them squirm and eventually flip flop saying its a great move.

Maybe its just me but it is quite fun.

your approach is not real subtle and can be construed as mean spirited. Try this - tell the flames fan you heard a rumour that the oilers signed Bertuzzi, then shut up.

If the flames end up signing him, your friend will be completely aware of what he said and he won't be all resentfull towards you. He can direct his anger at Sutter for making him look like a fool.

There a few flame sites I go to and for the past 2 weeks have been pushing the oilers to sign Bertuzzi--Due to the keenen connection--I always felt he would end up in Calgary--for the last to weeks they have been riding me--24hours ago when this rumour started--their views change

You must be a tough person to get along with. I would not avoid befriending someone just because they were a flames fan. That is just petty.

Not every sarcastic comment needs a face to make it obvious to what it is.
