When? Billboards

Hey,
I know this has nothing to do with hockey, but does anyone know what is with all these "When?" signs and billboards scattered around Edmonton? There are tons of them and im just curious as to what they are for.

Thanks

i thought they were put up there by some rich oilers fan during the losing streak. needless to say, not seeing "Finally!" after the win against Carolina the next morning left me a bit sad.

oh well.

It's the end of the world, my friend. Hope you said your prayers before going.

Ha...I actually joked around with my wife saying that Katz put them up asking when the Oilers would win a game.

I'd bet a Telus ad.

They've done things like that before.

A question from Edmonton fans about Tambellini actually making some moves perhaps?

Speaking of signs.

I was driving from Grande Prairie to Edmonton last week and laughed out loud.

On the side of the road was an Oiler flag surrounded by wreaths and flowers.

I'm pretty sure YOU have something to do with getting this buzz out. This is a typical placement in a forum to get buzz going.

That's a memorial to an Oilers fan that died in an accident. My brother had mentioned he saw the family putting it there not long after it happened.

Yep you are 100% correct. They came on air at 1:02 pm this afternoon and I have now listened to the station for the fist half hour or so and decided that this station is even worse than the bounce(which is already one of the crappy stations in town).

"look Smithers, Garbo is coming.

"I figure it's about some guy...some guy called Gabbo."

but anyways, this station is exactly what the city needs, another damn top 40 station. Because you know, we do not have enough stations playing Nickleback and Daughtry.

If anyone remembers 96x, its pretty much that. It even has Adam Mcaille (sp?) who used to work at the bounce and 96X. And, I think its terrible.
